About Me

Then…

…and now.

BRIEFLY ABOUT ME

I was born and grew up in Norway, lived most of the two first decades of adult life in the US (most recently Oregon and California), and have lived more briefly in Switzerland and England. These days, you are most likely to find me in the beautiful Andes mountains.

I have a strong curiosity about the world, and from early on have had a deep interest in and love for nature and life in general. Following an initial awakening in my teens, my path has been one of continuing to explore my own healing and awakening, and sometimes supporting others in the same.

If you are interested, I wrote a brief autobiography with an overview of my process.

SESSIONS
I don’t do very many sessions these days since I need to focus on my health, but please contact me if you feel called. I am happy to talk with you, and my wife is also an excellent therapist and energy worker.

I give sessions and have helped clients with a range of issues including anxiety, depression, trauma, compulsions, and addictions, relating to health issues, and finding one’s path in life. I can also help with navigating an awakening process. See testimonials from clients. The cost is on a sliding scale.

MY BACKGROUND AND SOME RESOURCES
I am a psychologist/therapist, a certified facilitator of the Living Inquiries, a certified Tension and Trauma Release Exercise (TRE) practitioner, a certified Breema practitioner and instructor, and a senior-level Vortex Healing practitioner. I have done The Work of Byron Katie since 2005 and am in the certification program. See posts on Living Inquiries, TRE, Breema, Vortex Healing, and The Work.

Here are some resources I have found helpful, some of my influences, a list of some of the books in my library, and a few old essays on eco-spirituality. Here are also some articles about what’s happening currently in my life, autobiographical posts, Finca Milagros posts, and some music I listen to. For the sake of completeness, I’ll also include a link to my old blogs here. I also occasionally post some of my own photography, have a page with a selection of photos, a few old drawings, and a few posts with my AI image experiments.

ABOUT MYSTERY OF EXISTENCE
This website – an exploration into the mystery of existence – reflects what is alive for me here and now. As with any other stories, maps, images, theories, and frameworks, anything here has a question mark after it, even if it doesn’t show up on the screen.

Also, be advised that what I write comes from personal explorations and experiences. It’s inevitably colored or framed by existing traditions and maps, but these writings are typically not about these traditions or maps.

The best way to learn more about this website is to use the article finder, do a search on the topics you are interested in, or check out the most used tags in the sidebar or the tag cloud. Also, read an updated explanation of the URL absent of I, and the initial explanation from a while back. (And another even more recent post about Mystery of Existence, which is likely similar to the previous ones!)

NORWEGIAN INFO
If you are Norwegian or Scandinavian, I have a bio in Norwegian and may also add more articles in Norwegian.

CONTACT ME
Please feel free to contact me or leave a comment. I appreciate it and typically respond within a day or so.

PS. På et annet tema og for norske: Siden det er lettere for meg å lytte enn å lese, og jeg har hatt stor glede av norsk radioteater siden barndommen, har jeg satt opp en side for NRK radioteater hvor jeg deler mine funn.
