    Annen bakgrunn

     

    Januar 1999 til mai 2002

    Fire opphold, (hvert opphold 4-6 måneder), i India. Jeg arbeidet bl.a. med kunst i et internasjonalt meditasjons- og kreativitetssenter i Pune.

     

    Gjennom årenes løp har jeg utforsket flere ulike «alternative» konsepter (meditasjon, kroppsterapi etc.) mest som egenterapi, men tidligere også ved å tilby behandling/kurs.
