Christine Eilvig has put her finger on why so many people in seemingly prosperous western societies are so malcontent with their lives. Too many of them have bought into a myth of norms and expectations of how our cultures measure success. All too often, the dogged pursuit of these goals leaves little bandwidth for anything else. And achieving these benchmarks often leaves them feeling anything but happy. In her books, talks and counseling work, Christine helps people reconnect, rediscover and reengage with their core selves, and in doing so, create a living spirituality that launches them into new and more fulfilling adventures. Christine lives in Denmark north of Copenhagen with her husband and three children.
