“Open Spaces”: Life Purpose and Creative Resilience

An Open Space for Creative Changemakers

Are you feeling frustrated, stuck, overwhelmed?

Do you long to live a more creative life?

Do you long to make a difference in the world?

I would love to speak to you.

I would love to hear what your challenges are. What your needs are. What is holding you back.

My greatest longing is to create an open space for people like you. To create a safe space where you can explore your creative expression and get reconnected with what you came here to do.

I believe that creativity is our doorway to connecting to our true potential.

I believe that perfectionism kills creativity.

We live in a society that focuses on perfectionism and that does not value true creativity.

As women, we often focus on others’ needs and are very good at adapting to the world around us. We forget our own needs, our own true expression. We forget why we are here. We even forget our longing to create.

Being creative is not necessarily what you think. It is not being good at painting, singing, drawing. It is a way of life, meeting the world around you with open eyes and ears, letting your senses be mirrored in your soul. It is giving your unique jewels to the world.

Holding ourselves and our true creativity and expression back, is – often contrary to what we believe – not doing good to anyone, least of all ourselves.

I believe we are here to make a difference, in our lives and in our world.

By reconnecting to our creativity and true expression, we can influence the people and the situation around us in ways that are truly innovative and nonlinearly expansive.

Like many women, I used to feel that I needed to be a good girl, doing the right thing, having a “proper” job, always adjusting myself to other people’s needs. Eagerly adapting to a society that is focused on rational, linear solutions and giving no credit to open, creative, integrative, multifaceted, sensitive approaches. I had success in work and life, but my body and my soul cried out for more – louder and louder, until I started to listen.

You don’t need to wait until your body cries out in pain or in overwhelm.

You can start listening now.

What do you need to feel your life as more meaningful, fulfilled, peaceful, joyful and creative?

I would love to listen, and to learn from your experience.

I am now offering free discovery sessions for women who want to discover more about their own creativity and longing and to gain more clarity and direction forward. Is this you?

This is not about trying to sell you anything, but a win-win conversation that will help me get a better understanding of creative changemakers’ challenges and longings, to be able to help more women like you. The conversation might be a changemaker in your life.

If you are interested in a free discovery session with me or in getting more information, all you have to do is write me a YES! and I will get back to you.

You can also write me directly on mail elin@aabnerum.dk or phone me on +45-29118411 to book a discovery session right now – on line or live.

The session has to be booked by the end of August. If you book a session before the 20th of August, you might be the lucky winner of a free package of 3 coaching sessions.

Please forward this to anyone you think might be interested!

Creative Resilience

Watch my presentation of Creative Resilience here –  A new story of health and taking creative action.
A conversation with Kim Douglas and For the Advancement of All Women  

To help you get deeper into your responses to the exercises and perspectives in the presentation, I am offering a 3 hours online workshop on Creative Resilience. You will be gently guided to explore your old beliefs about health that may be holding you back, your ressources and strengths and your new path into creative resilience and health.   Please write me a mail if you are interested in more information about this workshop.

If you want to commit to a longer period of support and coaching, I am offering individual coaching on Creative Resilience, health and life purpose. I will also be starting online groups where we go more in depth with the perspectives and practices offered. This will give you the possibility to meet and be powerfully supported by other people on the same quest and with similar challenges as you. Please send me a mail where you describe your main challenges, wishes and your time zone/ best times possible, and I will set up groups.

Please contact me on mail: info@aabnerum.dk.

  • Started my own business “Åbne Rum”  Open Spaces in Viborg, Denmark in 2019,  integrating creativity, nature and psychotherapy in transformational processes

A testimony from a colleague

Elin is a warm and grounded presence who can hold a space for you to find your path in life. Especially in times challenged by personal or global health crisis and other events that may challenge your status quo and that send you on a quest to find deeper purpose and meaning to your life, she can support you in remembering what is truly important to you and what it takes for you to be whole.
Through her own challenging health experiences, Elin has found that connecting more deeply and more consciously to ones‘ purpose in life can lead one back to a life of fulfillment and improved health. The new balance is achieved by reconnecting to ones’ own body and feelings, integrating left and right parts of the brain, bringing creativity back into daily life and re-connecting to nature.
Elin combines her passion for creative arts and nature with her knowledge of the human psyche to support her clients. Elin has been studying the relationships between humans, nature, culture, creativity and health for decades and has a unique approach of integrating them to support her client‘s path to well-being, joy and purpose.
Elin is a true cosmopolitan, with experience from different cultures, countries and continents, and with a deep interest and respect for the varied cultural and personal approaches people have to life. This, perhaps, led her to first train as a Social Anthropologist. Her continued quest for meaning and purpose and her passion for helping others in their process of self actualization, has led her to further train as a psychotherapist and to study theater and creativity. She dived deep into these fields of human endeavour and all her learning and experiences have come together in her own body of work that she offers at her practice Open Spaces (Åbne Rum) Viborg, Denmark,  and internationally through online sessions and workshops.
