Kjell Gustafsson 

How can one describe a person´s character, charisma, presence, deep understanding from a text. The following gives an idea about some stuff Kjell has done in his life. But he would say he is, like you, more than his storyline. 

Contact him and get a first hand experience. 

From Kjell´s current understanding

  • It is just one thing  going on

  • Conflicts are due to misunderstanding

  • Suffering comes from not knowing who you are

  • The thinking mind is limited by thoughts 

This short film may say more about Kjell than all the words on this site. Warning it may be contagious!
