I have since 2013 worked with "philosophical practice",  focusing on "philosophizing" with groups, using "p4c", socratic dialogue, phenomenology, hermeneutics and existential philosophy in dialogue with children and young in schools, as camps or art and philosophy courses, in art projects, as well as with adults in workshops, philosophical cafés in Stockholm and different projects. My main interests in philosophical practice is currently revolving around: existential dimensions such as meaning, "existential health", Socratic vs Nietzschean dialogue, developing methods and theory on "philosophizing with art" (PwA), studies on Michel Henry and phenomenological authenticity, getting philosophizing into the swedish school system and so called "contemplative practice". I am continuously questioning and exploring the value, methods and theory behind the practice itself and it's place in the 21st century.
