I am Norwegian happily married and have five children and live on a peninsula close to nature and only one hour from Oslo.
I work in different fields and ways but there is a common core to most of my activities. I will soon explain, but first I will tell you what I do.
I am the co-principal of the Norwegian Academy of Natural Medicine, NAN (www.nan.no), where I have been lecturing for more than 25 years. I have a master degree in Homeopathy from Uclan University, UK.
I also have lectured for medical students and nurses the last 25 years on topics related to complementary medicine with the main focus on homeopathy and acupuncture.
My lecturing is not limited to Norway, I have given many individual seminars and spoken on many conferences internationally. The seminars have covered most topics within complementary medicine, homeopathy, archetypes, miasms, egyptology, kabbalah and much more.
I have worked as the chairman in the Norwegian homeopathic society NHL (nhl.no), the European ECCH (homeopathy-ecch.org) and the international ICCH (now ICH - homeopathy-ich.org).
The main focus was on connecting homeopaths internationally and establishing a standard of education which resulted in the "Guidelines for homeopathic education" a document that has been reedited and complimented on from the whole homeopathic community since.
Half of my time I work as a therapists mainly as a homeopath, but I also do acupuncture, auriculotherapy etc. I counsel and supervise individual patients and colleges, but also working partners, couples and families.
With the background from esoteric traditions and work as initiators, together with my brother of heart and spirit Peter Grün, we have guided groups of people through a two step journey into the ritualistic path based on the Tree of Life. A path that takes 3,5 + 2.5 years.
Since 2008 I have had the privilege to explore new ways of knowledge (Holonistic knowledge - which is the focus on this blog) through and exploration journey. We have explored concrete substances and abstract concepts, we have challenged the placebo methodology with stretching the degrees of blinding, we have challenged causality and more. You can read more about this experiments in this blog.
This is just a little taste of what I do and have done, but in all I do my main focus is how to be at best service for the persons that bless my path with their presence. In a holonistic perspective my aim is to create the best holonistic state in the individuals and groups I relate to.
Cultivating awareness and growth, inspiring, spreading knowledge, stimulating health and development, creating improved harmony and unity within the individual as in its relation with the group.
In short; creating the best holonistic state in each holarchy (kheper.net/topics/holarchy/index.html)

Will you understand a human person if you know all the parts?
If you know the structure, location and activity in all organs, tissues and cells will you then be able to know and understand the person or are the things we relate to in ourselves and others at a higher level of organization?
These are the words of the father of medicine Hippocrates.
How we understand healing and cure has changed over the years, and is deeply connected to our perspective on reality.
Today more and more people are influenced by scientism, making them believe that any emotional, mental activity or soul like expression are all dependent of the biochemistry of your brain. They believe that you fall in love because of the oxytocin levels is rising, not that it is rising because you are falling in love.
Understanding part of a mechanism reduces the understanding of causation, intention, meaning, will, liking etc. into a biochemical machinery.
Even if this is an extrem reduction of the perception of reality, the people with this belief system think they are part of great discoveries into the secret of man and nature.
Healing of mental emotional problems becomes a question of the missing chemical in your brain!
This view on health and healing is based on certain axioms or fundamental beliefs. Scientism believes in matter as the basic unit – materialism Scientism believes that component compose the whole – reductionism Scientism believes that the external world can be examined objectively – positivism Scientism believes that with this knowledge the can understand causality – determinism
But there are other people with a more subtle approach to healing and cure.
They believe that the basic unit is not matter but a universal unity that interconnects all that exists; that there is a mutual influence an almost magical connection that can even transcend time and space. –Unity (Read more about unity here)
They believe that parts can never explain the wholeness, because a bigger wholeness, a bigger holon brings something new, a higher, more advanced coherence. They believe this is a higher principle involving into the lower realms so the lower realms can evolve. – Wholeness (Read more about wholeness here)
This is in strong contrast with evolution as a survival of the fittest. It is a belief that life on other planets would follow very similar steps if the conditions are similar.
They believe that the external world is an illusion. Reality is not matter, not only energy but all that exists are levels of awareness. The slowest most dormant we call matter. –Personal realization, mastery in life
They believe not in causality as a mechanistic perspective, but in creation manifesting in a lawful way. Where things have a wise purpose and are driven with care and love. -Spirituality
The main difference between these two extreme approaches to health is fear and trust.
The emerging view on life and healt is based on a different set of axioms you can read more about them here
