About Katinka Hesselink

Who am I? That’s the question. It’s a basically spiritual question as well: and any answer I give is limited by the concepts introduced by the words in the answers.

That said – I’m a daughter. I’m a sister. I’m a graduated teacher of math and chemistry who has moved on.

I’ve studied world religion at Leiden University for several years, specializing in India, Buddhism and the psychology, sociology and anthropology of religion. I also loved philosophy  and history of religion. If that sounds like all aspects of religion – it’s not. I am not particularly interested in looking at religion from a literary perspective. For me personally the practical side to religion – aka spiritual growth – is paramount.

I got my start studying religion and spirituality as a member of the Theosophical Society in 1994. My main studies in that context have been the work of H.P. Blavatsky and Jiddu Krishnamurti. I have given lectures and workshops in the Dutch Theosophical Society.

I write online for a living. I blog. I make lenses. I’m fluent in Dutch and English.

Here’s some of the places I’m active online. This list is far from complete. You may recognize me online by the tag-names ‘kh7’ or ‘spirituality’ or variations of those.
