Claus Springborg, Ph.D.
Over the last couple of decades, I have studied various traditional and contemporary paths of personal development. In particular, I have studied the Enneagram with Claudio Naranjo, Tibetan Buddhism with Chökyi Nyima Rinpoche, and the Diamond Logos essence work with Faisal Muqaddam, Jeremy Klein, and Velusia Van Horssen. I also hold a master practitioner degree in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).
I did my doctoral research at Cranfield University, the UK. I researched how I could use modern cognitive science to understand the practices of personal development I had learned from the above-mentioned masters. In particular, I used cognitive metaphor theory and theories of embodied cognition. Sixty managers from various organisations participated in the research. The research is published in the book Sensory Templates and Manager Cognition: Art, Cognitive Science and Spiritual Practices in Management Education and in several book chapters and academic papers on topics, such as education, therapy, cognitive science, leadership, and community building.
Today, I have established a school, Sensing Mind Institute, where I teach my methods of personal development to therapists, psychologists, counsellors, managers and others who work professionally with people. Apart from my work with Sensing Mind Institute, I am lecturing on entrepreneurship, community building, and co-creation at Copenhagen Business School and at The Royal Academy of Music in Copenhagen.
I have a background in music, dance, and physics. In my teaching, I emphasise kindness, precision, and humour.
