Work with me

As a writer, philosopher, and teacher with nearly 20 years of experience, I’ve thought seriously about which life is worth living; although each life is a multiplicity, words like love, freedom, and attention, are mandatory. 

Philosophy is a way of life that can help us live freer lives, that is, full of love and joy. Philosophical thinking is required if we are to get to know ourselves better, take better care of ourselves and others, and learn how we—unintentionally—contribute to suffering in our own lives and perhaps those of others too. It requires compassion, courage and consciousness to become who we end up becoming; it requires critical thinking skills to bring meaning and care into the world.

As a philosopher, I use philosophy to open more perspectives into your life, to develop a more sensitive and intuitive form of experience that intensifies life, as well as to gently challenge your patterns of thought, belief and habits, and explore the relationships between your thoughts, feelings, and actions. Basically to clarify what may be possible in your life. It’s a practice that helps people think for themselves, never for them. 

My own approach, is inspired by the philosophers Gilles Deleuze, Michel Series, Iris Murdoch and Simone Weil, e.g., how become worthy of what happens in our lives, how become aware of how I am being formed by what happens, and vice versa. Also, I find some inspiration in the ancient Greek philosophers, e.g., their discussion about the relationship between self-knowledge and self-deception; the existentialists, e.g., how we can make sense of our lives; and part of Buddhist thinking, especially mindfulness, e.g., how we can strengthen our capacity to carefully attending to the here and now of experience–that is, to pay attention and remain concentrated.

During the last ten years, I have conducted talks and seminars in Denmark and Spain (present and online) on specific issues: Opmærksomhedens filosofi, stress, burnout, anxiety and existential resistance. Also, I’ve led workshops and courses dealing with Writing lived experience, Ethics, Critical thinking and creativity:

  • “How to become worthy of what happens”
  • “Sport, existentialism and good lives”  
  • “How to practice attention, not distraction – individually and collectively”
  • “Life writing: How, what and why” 

Furthermore, I have organized and taught courses on critical thinking and creativity, as well as, specialized courses on existentialism and mindfulness:

I’ve experience with teaching at business schools, public schools, sport clubs, psychotherapy schools, and in private business organizations. If you or your department would like to know more about my talks or tailormade courses, please feel free to contact me:
