About Maria Kvilhaug

I was born in Oslo, Norway, in 1975. I moved to England, Staffordshire, at the age of 21, in order to study art because I wanted to do cartoons and animation. I ended up studying painting and graphics at Camberwell College of Art in London (BA degree) and lived altogether four years in the U.K.

After that I lived for a while i  Oakland, California, working as an assistant in Berkeley, before I moved to the Pacific Coast of Oaxaca, Mexico and lived there for another four years. During this time, I took up  the university studies I had begun at the University of Oslo before I moved to England. I had studied Philosophy and History, and now went for the History of Religions, with a special focus on Hinduism and Old Norse mythologies. This was a time when it was still possible to attend the Norwegian University without actually showing up, (excepting, of course, for examinations). So, being able to study on my own, I could do my studies and write my master thesis while spending most of my time in Mexico. I graduated with an MA in 2004, having specialized in Old Norse initiation rituals. My master thesis was published as a book in 2009.

Before going back to Norway after my graduation, I spent a year in Portugal, trying to write a book and develop my thesis on Old Norse myths. Then, returning to Norway after ten years in near-exile, I started working a desk-job and became absorbed with the Rosen Method, which I started to learn in 2006. I am now practicing this marvellous bodywork method on the side and make youtube-movies on mythology as a hobby and as a means of preparing the way to create real movies.

My main mission as a writer and/or movie-maker is to create awareness and offer information and knowledge on a spiritual  heritage that for long has been shrouded in mists. I would very much like to publish books and to create movies for real, but I would need some real movie-people to work with.

I would like to work with people who understand the concepts I am trying to convey and who may find ways of bringing these projects into manifestation financially and practically. I need funders or fundraisers!

If you are a musician and would like me to use your music in my youtube-movies, I am very grateful, but you must understand that I am in no way capable of paying you with anything but making your music known through my videos. However, if there was to be a documentary project I would obviously try to use musicians that I think make music that suits my movies.
