MARIA JESSEN-PETERSEN

Founder of 'Quitespace.dk'

Maria has spent most of her life living abroad and returned to Denmark in 2000 and has lived in the vibrant city of CPH ever since. In 2002, she opened TEA TIME, Copenhagen's first modern tea parlor with the vision of bringing to life the beautiful experience of  “Afternoon Tea” and delightful cakes to the younger generation in Copenhagen. This adventure expended into two more locations in CPH and a summer franchise in the gorgeous island of Bornholm. The idea and purpose behind TEA TIME was to SLOW down and step away from the hustle and bustle of our daily lives and treat ourselves to a sensory tea experience. In 2015 Maria decided to close this beautiful tea adventure, as she felt a desire and a longing to connect to life on a deeper level.

 

Maria has always been drawn to the SLOW way of life - allowing space and time for reflection and PAUSING. When discovering meditation for the first time, she felt “home” and found a pure and true consecutiveness that she had never experienced before. She was hooked! In 2019 Maria opened QuietSpace, Copenhagen's first “in-house” Mental Fitness space, which is located in Matrikel1, an ambitious and vibrant co-working community in the heart of Copenhagen. QuietSpace implements beautiful Japanese inspired Tatami Rooms for all-day “drop into” silence and meditation in the workplace, a crucial fundament for cultivating and maintaining a SUSTAINABLE Mental Health Strategy within organizations. Currently, it is available for all M1 members throughout their busy workday, as well as being a showroom for other organizations to visit and experience.

 

QuietSpace is also the instigator and “bridge maker” on a nationwide meditation movement. Maria currently guides meditations via Zoom, as QuietSpace is closed during these months.

Please get in touch, if you would like to join. Everyone is welcome.
