    Spiritual shunning: Its significance for the murder in Knutby Filadelfia2018In: Journal of Religion and Violence, E-ISSN 2159-6808, Vol. 6, no 3, p. 328-345Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This paper argues that the practice of “spiritual shunning,” defined as deliberate isolation of one person from a religious group for alleged spiritual reasons, may have been a significant factor in a murder case which happened in Sweden in 2004 in a small religious group with a Pentecostal background. The material consists of interviews with four former members, who describe the process of spiritual shunning as it existed in the group before it started to fall apart in the autumn of 2016. The four interviewees describe the process of spiritual shunning in roughly five stages: how they began to fall out of grace; when the door to Jesus definitely closed; the process of working their way back; being back in grace; and finally having the mission to help others move back to grace again. The informants describe very clearly the desperation they felt when they faced the possibility that they would not belong to the chosen ones when Jesus would soon come back, but would instead be burning in hell. Many sources document that the perpetrator of the crime in 2004 was spiritually shunned by the core group at the time of the murder. The murder was presented to her by the pastor who was later convicted for instigating the crime, as a way to pay off her spiritual debts.

    State Funding of Registered Faith Communities: Discussing Democratic Values in Sweden2018In: Studies in Humanities and Social Sciences - Toward Cultivating Global Citizenship, ISSN 1598-4230, Vol. 59, p. 77-92Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    In this article, the premises for state support of religious communities in Sweden are discussed in relation to democratic values. Registered faith communities in Sweden have the possibility to apply for financial support from the state, as well as for help to collect the membership fee through the state tax payment process. One of the most important criteria to receive state support is that the faith community should contribute to the maintenance and strengthening of the fundamental values of society, the state funding opportunity thus being intimately related to the Swedish conception of democracy. In 2016, 43 faith communities were receiving economic support from the state on these premises. Some applications for state funding of religious faith communities have, however, been turned down. This article will focus on one of these cases, the application from Jehovah´s Witnesses, which has been turned down on the critique that the faith community does not contribute to the maintenance and strengthening of the fundamental values of society. This case has been in question since 2007 and is still not resolved. Based on this case, the question of fundamental values of society, a corner stone in the Swedish perspective on democracy, will be problematized, and some dilemmas will be pinpointed.

    Abstract [en]

    Mindfulness has during the last few years developed from a Buddhist practice to a therapeutic practice used in several secular therapeutic schools, especially in cognitive behavioural orientations. It is thus a good example of a practice which exists in as well as inbetween both religion and therapeutic care. Analysing the development of mindfulness, the contemporary blurring boundaries between religious, scientific and therapeutic discourses and practices are discussed.

    The Satsang Network: A Growing Post-Osho Phenomenon2002In: Novo Religio: The Journal of Alternative and Emergent Religions, ISSN 1092-6690, Vol. 6, no 1, p. 64-85Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This article describes and discusses a phenomenon I call the Satsang network, a group of Westerners claiming to have reached enlightenment. Several of these persons spent many years with the controversial guru, Osho; hence, I argue that one way of understanding the Satsang network is as a post-Osho development in which satsang holders become an example of how charismatic leaders emerge from institutionalized religious movements. Also discussed are the construction, confirmation, and social support of the enlightenment process; the alteration of meanings when Eastern concepts are interpreted from a Western perspective; and ways in which certain core teachings in the Satsang network mirror key processes of current globalization.

    Waldorfpedagogiken – religion eller inte?2014In: DIN: tidsskrift for religion og kultur, ISSN 1501-9934, E-ISSN 2387-6735, no 1, p. 48-68Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [sv]

    Waldorfpedagogiken har utvecklats från antroposofin och används idag i skolor över hela världen. Antroposofin uppfyller flera av de viktigaste kriterierna i de vanligaste definitionerna av religion.  I denna artikel behandlas frågan om huruvida waldorfpedagogiken ska uppfattas som religiös eller inte. Mitt material består av skriftliga och elektroniska källor av olika slag, intervjuer samt observationer på en waldorfskola. Frågan kommer att diskuteras utifrån tre aspekter: ideologisk frikoppling, lärarens roll samt potentiellt religiösa inslag relaterade till morgonspråket och religionsundervisning. Jag föreslår att waldorfpedagogiken ska ses som en hybrid i den terminologi som Siv-Ellen Kraft använder. En hybrid är en företeelse där en för­ståelse med religiösa inslag utgör en av flera möjligheter (Kraft 2011: 78). Trots tillämpandet av detta perspektiv kvarstår dock andra problematiska områden gällande relationen mellan waldorfpedagogik och religion.

    Guds nya barnbarn: Att växa upp i kontroversiella religiösa grupper2017Book (Other academic)
    Abstract [sv]

    Hur är det att vara barn och växa upp i en religiös minoritetsgrupp som Hare Krishna, Scientologi-kyrkan, Jehovas Vittnen, Knutby Filadelfia, Plymouth-bröderna, Enighetskyrkan eller Guds Barn/Familjen? Boken bygger framför allt på ett 70-tal intervjuer med såväl vuxna som barn som vuxit upp i dessa grupper, samt på intervjuer med ett 20-tal föräldrar, men också på fältobservationer och textstudier av gruppernas material kring barn och barnuppfostran. Livsvillkoren för barnen kan vara mycket olika, bland annat för att de olika religiösa grupperna har olika ideologier och syn på barnuppfostran, men också på individuella omständigheter inom olika familjer, fas i gruppens utveckling samt samhällets gensvar och reaktioner på gruppen ifråga. Boken diskuterar teman som socialisation, identitet, avhopp och skolgång, men tar också upp farhågor kring dessa grupper som auktoritär uppfostran, aga, isolering från samhället, separationer mellan föräldrar och barn, och bristande omsorg vad gäller mat och hälsa.

    Characteristics of Contemporary Religious Change: Globalization, Neoliberalism, and Interpretative Tendencies2012In: Post-Secular Society / [ed] Peter Nynäs, Mika Lassander, Terhi Utriainen, New York: Routledge, 2012, p. 47-70Chapter in book (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    This chapter focuses on changes in contemporary religion and in particular in relation to the globalization process. Globally, one aspect of religious change is that fundamentalist religious movements are thriving, aiming at reviving tradition, and making religion influential again in contemporary society. The chapter explores the more vague religious expressions of Western culture, related to New Age and the spirituality discourse, as responses to globalization in the universalistic mode. It discusses the concepts of New Age and spirituality, and argues that essentializing a New Age category no longer makes sense in a globalized society. The chapter then focuses on the dichotomy of institutionalized religion on one hand, and uninstitutionalized, or popular religion, on the other hand. Finally, it raises some critical questions to point some significant similarities between, on the one hand, the characteristics of contemporary religious change and, on the other, neoliberal politics and culture.

    Harassment and Threats, Concern and Fear: The Experiences of Local Politicians in Ludvika, Sweden2020In: Journal for Deradicalization, E-ISSN 2363-9849, Vol. Spring, no 22, p. 188-217Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Sweden has a history of a stable party system, democracy, consensus, welfare and few labour market conflicts. But after the election in 2014, the Ludvika municipality in Sweden found itself in an unusual situation: a representative from a neo-Nazi party – the Nordic Resistance Movement (NRM) – held a seat in its local political council. The party, and its movement, are the most prominent representative of violent white supremacy in Sweden, known not least for its fear-mongering tactics. Between November 1, 2017 and August 31, 2018, Dalarna University conducted a study using questionnaires and interviews within the Ludvika municipality to investigate the sense of safety felt by elected representatives of both the political council and the municipal boards. An anticipated result might have been that the NRM presence in the municipal assembly has strongly impacted on the politicians’ sense of safety – and also has increased political tensions. To a certain extent, this proved to be the case. However, Ludvika politicians must also contend with other sources of and reasons for mockery, harassment and threats: predominantly “angry citizens” due to controversial decisions, personal conflicts within established parties relating to the choice of personnel, and a contempt for in particular some extreme right wing political opinions.. The results regarding the sense of safety and vulnerability are very much in line with national figures. Even overall, Swedish politicians at the national, regional and local levels are aware of pressure from right-wing extremists, who distribute propaganda that often incorporates blame, an exposing of individuals and violent language. The result from Ludvika should therefore be seen as one of degree rather than of type, as the situation is worse here than in other municipal councils in Sweden. A conclusion that can be drawn from the study is that the political debate is heading in an increasingly antagonistic direction, where ideological adversaries are regarded more as enemies than as legitimate opponents. While in the long term this can pose a threat to democracy, positive counter-responses were found in Ludvika that can serve to support the democratic position.

    The Plymouth Brethren Christian Church in Sweden: Child Rearing and Schooling2021In: The Journal of CESNUR, ISSN 2532-2990, Vol. 5, no 2, p. 135-160Article in journal (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    The authors have published another article, based on the same empirical material (Frisk and Nilsson 2018). This article will give an in-depth “thick description” of child rearing and schooling in the Plymouth Brethren Christian Church in Sweden. The first part of the article is based on interviews with children and young people in the group conducted in 2014 and 2015, and focuses on Brethren identity and socialization. The second part of the article discusses the Labora School, a non- confessional free school which was established by a group of Brethren parents and business owners in 2007. This part of the article also reflects the public debate about confessional and non-confessional free schools in Sweden. The Labora school has been criticized by both the Swedish Schools Inspectorate and the media. This section of the article is based mainly on official school inspection documents and media material.
