I was born and raised in Northern Germany, and have lived in a variety of different countries. I believe that for my entire conscious life, I have been on a path for positive change. I regard this as a red thread going through my life; to create positive change wherever I reside or work, as well as within myself.
This happens on many levels, f. ex. in the daily presence of another human being or an animal, and in larger associations where a renewal can take place. Simplicity and honesty are two pillars I would like to integrate with all my actions. For me, life is a big river, and I try to keep myself in movement without losing foothold. As David W. Orr said I wish to: "[…] teach the things that one might imagine the earth would teach us: silence, humility, holiness, connectedness, courtesy, beauty, celebration, giving, restoration, obligation, and wildness.“
Erik passed away on September 10th 2020, after a longer periode of sickness. It was his wish to be on the farm to his very end and that led into a beautiful process of family and friend supporting care and goodbye. On September 18th the funeral took place at Kregme Church. Erik is busy helping the earth from the other side.
