All I can remember is standing there in the sun with 100 kids in front of me, taking my lead. It is the last day of a summer sailing camp and they are singing for all they are worth; gone is their shyness, their eyes shining. I am 20 and I suddenly realise that this is what I want to do with my life. Create a stage for others.
My way of handling a challenging family situation as a child was to disconnect and redefine reality. Ever since I have looked for ways to re-enter the Now, be touched by it.
After having worked for 20 years with digital learning, seeking to re-establish the lost connection in cyber space with thousands of participants, I stumbled upon Stillmotion´s film making. I watched
their films over and over and cried at the exact same sequence every time. ’This cannot be a coincidence´, I thought. ´I want to learn how to do this´. So I quit my job and started my own company: Stockholm Social Innovation Lab - helping others to tell Stories that Unite Us for a better world.
It took me a year to master the Muse storytelling method by Stillmotion. The course was easy enough. What took time was to unlearn my academic and corporate training and fundamentally shift my approach to reality. Nowadays I can create that stage for others I always wanted with film making that pushes me right into the Present moment I always longed for. The Muse has me covered.
