Hi, I’m Dr Vegard Engen, PhD
I’m the founder of Ephemeral Energy.
I have always been passionate about all aspects of health and wellbeing. Physical health, mental health, and spirituality have been just as important in my life as science and philosophy. The journey of my professional life began with a PhD in Computer Science, specialising in Artificial Intelligence, teaching and conducting a diverse range of applied research in large, collaborative, European and national projects.
About 20 years ago, I started immersing myself in meditation, Tai Chi, Qigong, Chinese Medicine, Reiki, diet and general physical exercise for my own health and wellbeing. In 2016, my journey in life brought me to a point where it was time to open up what I was doing for myself, family and friends, to the public. And that’s how Ephemeral Energy was “born” 🎉
I used to teach Tai Chi, but I have prioritised building my therapeutic expertise to be able to offer additional therapeutic services. In support of the primary services, I also have level 2 qualifications in counselling skills and awareness of mental health conditions (for adults and children). I am also a certified RockDoc (kinesiology taping).
I love teaching and sharing the things I am passionate about. My full-time job is Deputy Head of Department at Bournemouth University, which involves both research and teaching (as well as the management aspects). I also teach Reiki, which is easy to learn for yourself and others.
Personal development is an important part of my life, which I bring into all my services. I also have the pleasure of being a Mindvalley Ambassador! Mindvalley offers some truly transformative online courses, and lots of invaluable free masterclasses, so do check them out! 🌟
Finally, rest assured that I’m fully insured for all my services.
