Stefan Freedman


Mini Biography

I am 62 years old, a married guy with three grown up step children. My grandparents were Russian and Rumanian jews who came to England to escape persecution. I was opened in 1970 and Bethan and I live in Ipswich, Suffolk, but work with adult groups worldwide. My rich and varied work, plus the remarkable travelling life that goes with it, came about through my “unfolding” as a result of the latihan, and testing played a useful part in this.
