Samten Kobelt grew up near Zurich, Switzerland where he again resides since 2013. In 1984 he met the Shambhala teachings at Naropa University and started practicing. He met Trungpa Rinpoche in Germany in 1985 and became his student. He was Resident Director of Shambhala Training in Bern and coordinated the first two Warrior Assemblies in Europe. Samten spent 10 years at the major Shambhala land centers in North America where he became a student of Sakyong Mipham Rinpoche. He served for six years as Director of Marpa House and three years as a shastri at the Boulder Shambhala Center.
Samten has been interested in the mind-body connection and its application in society since he started meditating. He is practicing and teaching Contemplative Dance Practice, developed by Barbara Dilley; Lujong (Tibetan Yoga) transmitted by Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche; Bugaku (Japanese Court Dance) from Togi Sensei through Arawana Hayashi; and Qigong in the lineage of Eva Wong.
