Hildur first experienced mindful awareness practices over 2 decades ago when she took refuge in Diamond Way Buddhism. With Shamanic roots in Iceland and a relaxed Lutheran upbringing, Hildur's spirituality is best described as Interfaith Evolution-based Cosmology infused with deep Ecology. She’s deeply committed to ongoing studies of Buddhist and Yogic philosophies. She's especially interested in working with ways to resolve trauma related to eco-anxiety and the return to Earth-based traditions as The Way to heal.
Currently, Hildur is especially inspired by Lama Liz Monson and Lama Willa Miller at the Natural Dharma Fellowship. She’s committed to Ecosattva training with One Earth Sangha.
