I work as a philosophical practitioner in Norway, Austria and Switzerland, and am a board member of the Norwegian Society for Philosophical Practice. Having a post-graduate education in Philosophical Practice and a doctor degree in philosophy, I lecture on philosophical practice, applied ethics and dialogue methodologies at different universities and education centers.

As a philosophical practitioner I work mainly with groups, and my interests in the field are methodologies for self-knowledge, self-development and self-transcendence. This interest in methodologies made me initiate and edit the book-project "The Socratic Handbook", in which 34 philosophical practitioners from 20 countries present different dialogue tools and techniques for philosophical practice.

4. Philosophizing - Caring for the love of wisdom

This string of reflections focuses on philosophy in its literal translation, namely the love of wisdom. If we understand philosophy as love of wisdom, then, as a consequence, philosophy is something we can feel, simply because love is something we can feel.

3. Wondering: falling in love with wisdom

This reflection string is about the idea that philosophy – which literally means love of wisdom – is something we can feel, simply because love is something we can feel.

2. Practicing philosophy: Making love with wisdom

In my last reflection I concluded that if love is something we can feel, then also the love of wisdom, as a literal translation of the term philosophy, must be something we can feel.

1. Philo-sophia: Feel the love of wisdom

What is philosophical practice? We as philosophical practitioners know this question all too well. To agree on an answer between us practitioners isanother story. To use a metaphor: We have started on the Rubik ́s cube, and maybe we will never finish.
