I was born in Haugesund, a small city on the southern-westcoast of Norway. When growing up I was very much into music and singing, and played different instruments like trombone, organ and tenor. I spent many years in the local brass-band. In my twenties and thirties the interest in music was put on a hold. I took my master of science degree in Microbiology and started working in the pharmaceutical industry, got married, had two wonderful kids, got more and more depressed and as it happened I did a big leap in career and became a Personal trainer and group-instructor. My interest in yoga had evolved and I soon became a yoga-teacher. The summer of 2011 I attended the yogafestival at Ângsbacka in Sweden for the first time. Here I got to experience my very first GongBath. And what an experience it was! I was totally blown away and my long forgotten interest for music came back.
11.11.11 I attended my very first Gongmaster training with Jimmy Andersson and Adam Svensson at the Gongacademy from Sweden. Later on I did trainings with Gongmaster Mehtab Benton in GongYoga and Gongtherapy. Since then I have played, given GongBaths and Sacred Sound concerts. In 2013 yogateachers in Norway started asking ifTor Arne Håve and I could start training others in the skills of playing gong. Since then we and I, my self, has trained over 100 people.
I work parttime in a drug-rehabilitation specialist unit in the healthcare system in Norway with physical activity, yogatherapy etc.
