Carsten Callesen

Over the last 35 years, Carsten has lived and worked with children, youth, and adults with developmental disabilities in Camphill communities in Scotland, England, and the United States. In true Camphill style, he has tried his hand at almost everything. He has carried responsibilities as a houseparent, workshop leader, teacher, administrator, counselor, and therapist. Carsten holds a Bachelor of Arts in the Art of Eurythmy and a Master equivalent diploma in Eurythmy Therapy.
Over the past decade, his overall responsibility and focus have shifted towards the therapeutic medical field. He serves the community as Director of Therapeutic Services; and is a National Licensed EMT, currently pursuing a nursing degree.
Carsten has an active interest in group work and conflict resolution and in promoting self-advocacy, empowerment, human relationships, and abuse prevention for all community members.
Carsten is a core faculty member of the Camphill Academy and an adjunct faculty member of the Transdisciplinary Healing Education Program at Antioch University. He lives by a motto: “in life, we find a true path of learning,” and he remains a therapist at heart, where the listening ear is at the core.
