The name Eudaemon is inspired by Aristotle’s concept of ’Eudaimonia’, i.e. human flourishing, happiness and well-being. While Eudaemon offers several services, the common denominator is to provide tools to promote flourishing and an increased quality of life both for companies, groups and individuals.
It is important to emphasize that Eudaemon does not offer therapy, so our emphasis is not on the past, i.e. the events leading up to where you or your company are right now. Our focus is your future, how you want to spend the rest of your life, and we take you there by combining academic rigor with the latest generation of tools from philosophical practice and coaching.
Nor do we believe in superficial solutions or quick fixes; lasting change requires courage, honesty and to commit wholeheartedly. Consequently, Eudaemon only accepts clients that are open and willing to take a step into the unknown to explore values, actions, and choices without judgments or preconceived notions of how things ’ought to be’.
Your journey ahead can be captured with the words of the Danish philosopher Sören Kirkegaard: ’To dare is to lose one’s footing momentarily. Not to dare is to lose oneself’. There are no short cuts to living authentically, but if you are willing to commit, so are we!
About Dr Veronica Johansson
“The unexamined life is not worth living”, Socrates once claim, and I have spent most of my life examining one of the question that occupied the ancient philosophers both in the East and the West: What is a good life?
For more than 20 years, I addressed this question academically, with a PhD in Ethics, a master’s degree in Theology specialized in Eastern philosophy, and additional studies in neuroscience, psychology, and didactic (to mention a few!), and later as a university lecturer and researcher – as a brain machine interface specialist – at two of Europe’s top ranked universities. My research focused on authenticity, biases, disability, empowerment, choices, and quality of life. For many years I was passionate about philosophy and my job, but over time something changed and I felt that it was no longer enough. Could I use all my accumulated knowledge beyond the limiting format of academia, and instead help groups and individuals to lead more authentic and fulfilling lives?
I had heard the clarion call, and decided to take a bold leap into the unknown. In 2011, I became a Certified Grief Recovery Specialist®, and later I finished my training as an ICF Certified Coach, a philosophical practitioner, and, most recently, in existential coaching and neuro linguistic programming, NLP. While I still teach neuro ethics and nano ethics at the Faculty of engineering at Lund University, I decided to leave my life as a researcher. So in 2017 I founded Eudaemon, to be able to facilitate change first hand and to promote human flourishing and well being. Today I work with companies, groups and individuals, give public lectures, and lead educational tours.
