What is the central organizing question that is the underpinning of your work?

“Why do people hurt one another?”

This question first came to me in my early teens. Ever since I have been looking for ways to solve this very human (self)-destructive behaviour. I studied everything I could to deepen individual and collective awareness and consciousness: healing methods, group processes, history, philosophy etc. Fortunately in my search I have found inspiration and more and more like-minded friends and supporters. The Collective Wisdom Group is one of these.

What is your personal experience of collective wisdom in groups?

I have had quite a few experiences, in small and large groups. The work was never easy and took a lot of patience, perseverance and respect for one another. Quite often when I was beginning to feel desperate – thinking the group would fail to make a breakthrough - something miraculous would occur, turning everything upside down and freeing our spirits for true insight. These moments when we all start to act and work as ONE are unforgettable tipping points.

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

Working in the field I feel at home. I am full of inspiration and have endless power. I look at everything around me with so much love, so much respect and deep felt understanding. There is no need to discuss or explain - we just act in a flow-state. Everybody takes responsibility for their inner calling and what they feel gifted to do. There is a feeling of moment-by-moment-creation. And the connecting source is LOVE.

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

Nature has always been my best teacher. I am still in awe of the beauty inherent in the harmony, resilience and interconnectedness of the natural world. I would love to work towards a better understanding of what nature means to us and what we mean to nature – in the sense of: “Hey! – We are all One. Let’s enjoy this creation together”. If you are interested I have a personal story about ‘nature as teacher’ on my website. It is about nettles and their connection worldwide.

I am deeply grateful to everyone I have met in my life as I know they have enriched my life tremendously. Some lifted my spirit, some brought me deeper into the shadows and others challenged my authenticity. Life always provides me with the best to make me move on and grow further.

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

I would love to experiment with others and exchange what we feel and experience when connected with the field. I can contribute some teaching methods that bring us closer to ONE BIG HUMAN FAMILY. And I would be grateful to learn more from others.
