After leaving his work of more than ten years with an American bank in the City of London, Karstein Bjastad became a stay-at-home dad. Following this bold move, Karstein had his spiritual interests re-kindled. His spiritual quest led him to A Course in Miracles, which is a non-dualistic spiritual teaching. The application of non-dualistic spirituality as taught in A Course in Miracles has become Karstein’s life passion.
