Jan-Magne has studied the Western mystery tradition and sacred sexuality since 1997. He has a holistic approach to self-development which includes the whole human being where sexuality and spiritual attainment enhance each other.
He was initiated into the OTO in 1999, and was ordained to the office of priest of the EGC in 2004. He has been practicing as a life-coach and teacher of spirituality for the last fifteen years.
As a spiritual teacher he is pragmatic, and believes there is no one-size-fit-all-approach to spiritual growth and attainment. Each and every one of us must find our own path, but we might benefit from listening to the experiences of others.
