I’m a licensed DEI Trainer and DEI Consultant, and I teach workshops and offer 1-on-1 sessions throughout Europe. I co-created a 6 week online course with my colleauge Anchen Texter called Essential Boundaries for Bodyworkers. It is offered here at Empathy Academy twice a year.
I’m also a self-employed massage therapist with 25 years of experience, and former meditation and self-development teacher. I started out practicing traditional Hawaiian lomi lomi massage in 1993. I trained with a Hawaiian master lomi massage teacher from Maui during a 12 year period. So I have a special affinity for all things Hawaiian. I like to travel for work and have taught spiritual development workshops (Essence work) for four years in Denmark and UK.
I began studying Education at the University of Copenhagen back in 2004, and in the fall of 2018 I decided to go back and complete my studies. Currently I am a full time student and I’m studying Education Science at the University of Aarhus, at DPU Campus in Emdrup. Education theories, learning theories, didactics, psychology and philosophy has been among my interests for many years.
I first discovered Karla’s work about four years ago through a friend, who recommended her books to me. And I’ve been studying it since then (more intently for the last three years) – I find it so helpful and interesting. It answered several of my unanswered questions from previous trainings I did in self-development work
Learning about how each emotion has gifts, a specific message, and a specific practice has been immensely helpful to me. I particularly find the practice on channeling my anger and shame into my boundaries, and grounding myself very helpful. Karla’s work has cleared up a lot of confusions for me about how to understand and navigate in my inner emotional landscape. It makes so much sense to me, and has from the beginning I started reading her books and articles.
I look forward to deepen in my learning and understanding, and to connect with you all here!
