What is an underlying question that gives form to your work or interest in this field?

“How does mental and spiritual synchronisation work, in order to increase the collective wisdom of communities?"

What is your personal experience of collective wisdom in groups?

I have lived in different communities now for 23 years. During that time, there had been several peaks of collective consciousness, and on the bottom line they had not been lasting. It always came back to the question “Oh, that´s great. Now what can I do with that?”  Just a few weeks ago I took part in an exercise of a “We” that felt so strong and authentic, that I started an initiative for a group experience to deepen what happened.

What is it about the work in this field that excites you and connects you to your own deepest self?

With the level of understanding I’ve reached by now, I found that the dream I´ve been following since I was 6 years old, is not a dream but reality: to live in a community, where everyone is looking for the highest potential of everyone, as the natural expression of life itself.

Please provide a brief storyline or snapshot of what brought you to this work.

23 years of living in various (experimental) communities and at the end my spiritual teacher Thomas Hübl, who inspired me with radical tenderness and his connection to the everything.

How would you like to be available to others in this field?

My wife and I are initiating a social experiment (beginning October 2008), 30 men and women, committed for three months to the search and research for collective wisdom by practicing truthful communication, self study, meditation and sharing. This will be a kind of laboratory in the middle of bigger European communities like “Zegg” or “Findhorn”. Anyone, who is interested in taking part or helping with ideas, questions, inspirations or money is very welcome.
