Aya Annika Skattum was born in Norway, grew up partly in the Ivory Coast and has spent most of her adult life in France.
As a psycho-corporal therapist, art and dance-therapist and whirling dervish, she accompanies people individually and in groups. Introduced to various healing and meditation practices, she offers individual sessions and collective meditation, healing and Dervish whirling dance practices.
With a mastery of languages, training in the artistic field and a master’s degree in international marketing, she has managed cultural and artistic projects at an international level. She also had the opportunity to work in the field of interior architecture and to realize several venues.
Her spiritual quest led her to travel and meet masters and guides from different traditions. On this path, she met the Dervish Whirling which called for a deepening in the Sufi tradition.
Since 2008, she has followed closely the teaching of Fawzia Al-Rawi, Sufi guide, who created The House of Peace in Vienna, Austria, in 2007.
