Natural Liberation

Welcome to the blog & podcast Natural Liberation

Natural Liberation is about change & transformation and that which is permanent.
Other words are evolution and awakening.

I have several friends who are awake. They don't know each other and they have very different backgrounds. When we talk, small little private conversations, the words and ways one friend describes his / hers individual experience of “awakeness” is confusingly different from the words and ways of another friend.
They are so different, that one would think, this is not at all the same phenomena they address.

Though, it is.

This podcast & blog called Natural Liberation is an attempt to unify and simplify. And to go “more natural”.

change & transformation & permanence

evolution and awakening

I have several friends who are awake

I have several friends who are awake. They don't know each other and they have very different backgrounds. When we talk, small little private conversations, the words and ways one friend describes his / hers individual experience of “awakeness” is confusingly different from the words and ways of another friend.
They are so different, that one would think, this is not at all the same phenomena they address.

Though, it is.

This podcast & blog called Natural Liberation is an attempt to unify and simplify. And to go “more natural”.

I guess the confusion starts with words and that words are not reality. Understand words as maps for the thinking mind to navigate a complex reality. The five letters H O U S E are thus like symbols on a map, and they should make you think about a HOUSE.

The letters H O U S E are not a real house. So far everything is fine?, I hope.

Now take the four letters L O V E. Is LOVE real? Is there a thing called LOVE that we could go and visit the way we could visit the house? No, we can not make love concrete the way the house is concrete. Maybe, when I write LOVE and you read LOVE, we are not referring to exactly the same thing. Or what do you think? Most likely already with the house, I think of one house and you think of another house. So unless we would visit the house I refer to, we were not exactly in the same mental room, even with the H O U S E.

So, again, what do you think about L O V E. Will it be the same love you and me refer to? Or most likely different, maybe even really different?

So talking about Freedom, Liberation, Awakening (words with a looot of meaning to them) … well, I do hope that my words will help clarify this stuff for some readers. But for others, my words will be confusing. Another way to say this, is that words are never “the” truth.
My words are more like a finger pointing. So please look where these words are pointing at. Then look closer for yourself. Come up with your own words for what you experience, maybe.

P. Ola Jannhov

Mystic * DJ * Healer

I´m an Mystic, Discjockey and Healer. The underlying theme of my life seem to be a spiritual path with transpersonal evolution.

Logo Delight
To delight transitions means that I delightfully support in times of evolution and transformation, to make your changeovers joyous, light and easy. Accordingly, as I evolved as a DJ, my specialty became transitional events; one time events like weddings, the birthdays with a "0" and for companies, events like new openings and major anniversaries (and not so much the yearly occurring xmas parties).
Thereby I make you Move with Joy to Liberate. Liberation at a party simply means to be free and have an awesomely great time. Liberation in the healing work and in the spiritual contexts hints at a further-reaching freedom, doesn't it?
I delight Your transitions & Move with Joy to Liberate together form my credo and this is what you can expect, as the core content of any of my work.

Education, Training

Basic stations through life

  • Born 1964, in Lund, Sweden
  • Technical gymnasium 1980 - 1984, simplified engineering degree in electronics and computer construction
  • Designed and built Hi-Fi electronics, "things that made sounds" and invented a sound sampler (Yamaha brought their first model to the market simultaneously)
  • Military service 1984, specialized in technical problem solving in complex communication facilities
  • 1990 moved to Germany. I've lived in Berlin, Bielefeld, Cologne, Potsdam and now just southwest of Berlin

University (I´ve been to three and have no formal degree)

  • Internship, managing assistant at One World Verlag, Berlin, 1995
  • Business school and coaching training, Sage Innovations, Munich, Cologne, 2003 - 2004

Theater and stage performance

  • Joined "Lilla teatern", Lund in 1985 (were e.g. Max von Sydow started his career)
  • Basic actors training, basic acrobatic training
  • Worked with rhythm and experimental voice expression
  • Directed and trained, very pleased to have helped a young woman into the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art in London
  • Cultural exchange (theater) of 15 Swedes and 15 Bulgarians (Lund and Novi Pazar) 1987-1988. Played in Novi Pazar 1987.

  • Loads of assisting and co leading in seminars of others in various forms of personal growth, including tantra, since 1990

Lifestyle choices & my learning experiences out of them

  • Essential simplicity
  • I never really stepped into the rat race
  • I'm more into being than having
  • Meaningful doing seem to be the bridge between necessary having and essential being
  • Sometimes this bridge is as thin as a tightrope and my life is about keeping the balance. This act of life balance is then like practicing spiritual trust in everyday life
  • My vocation is that of Joy, to enlighten and delight the transitions people have in their lives
  • My favorite parties to dj at, are weddings cause that's such a beautiful transition
  • I delight transitions Midlife. Letting go of the unnecessary might be less about stuff and more about habits and believes. It's more about freeing up the inner clutter
  • I live in a simple house in the forest, but close enough to Berlin to have the goodies both of nature and the big city

Since the age of 15 I knew I wanted to do "my thing" but for many years I found it hard to get to the very point of WHAT exactly.

  • Since 1999 I've played at way beyond a thousand parties: weddings, birthdays, companies, television, city events .. the list is long. Please visit my DJ site DJ Ola
  • Presentation. I´m a pretty decent live stage presenter and have officially presented Sweden in the field of tourism. Please visit my DJ site DJ Ola
