I want to share love and understanding through writing. When I was young I studied creative writing and drama, courses that did not get me any degree. Then I became so involved with the local meditation center that the volunteering I did there, became more important than pursuing a career. For many years I was doing different projects with my meditation friends, like running a restaurant with a discotheque, while having other part time jobs outside. Those jobs were for example cleaning, substituting as a teacher, being a janitor in a school, an art model and a caretaker of disabled persons. I traveled to India, USA and in Europe participating in meditation practice. I learned massage, oriental dance and other body awareness techniques. Later I started and ran a small cleaning business. During the years I ran that business I became interested in Voicing, a technique for using the singing voice for self exploration and as a path to meditation, created by Pratibha de Stoppani. I trained with her. Then I decided I wanted a proper academic degree and started studying Physical Therapy. It took me ten years, with a five year long break, to get my BS, because I was split between my own more holistic approach and the bio-mechanical approach I confronted when I first started at Karolinska Institutet. But time was on my side. After my five year break the global medical science community had developed enough for those two approaches to meet half way. I noticed it in the students as well. This time many fellow PT-students were massage therapists, singers, dancers and yoga practioners, not just ski athletes and soccer players. After graduating I have worked as physical therapist; with elderly patients in geriatric care, with disabled adults and young persons, in home rehabiltation and with neurological patients. I am also trained as facilitator of mindfulness.
