Back story

Hi, I’m Michell Léon. A Danish writer and founder of Five Element Writing.

My signature writing style is the causerie, an old journalistic writing style where you discuss with yourself to reach clarity.

I write books, blogs and newsletters, and I write in both Danish and English. My books are written in Danish (my mother tongue), and my blogs and newsletters are in English.

I was born in Copenhagen in 1972 and received a BA in journalism in 2000. Since then, I worked as a freelance journalist, a ghostwriter and a political speechwriter at top government level in Denmark before I jumped into life as a next-big-thing entrepreneur in the online media industry.

After more than a decade in entrepreneurship, however, I realized that I'm simply happier as a writer. I decided to return to my original craft and combine it with my many years of experience with personal development.

The Seer

Back in 2006 I met my spiritual mentor, Calle Montségur, an old esoteric Seer living in Andalusia, Spain, who taught me his method and philosophy.

When he died in 2007 it made me write a memoir about him, which included my own process of understanding the science of spirituality and the personal development that followed. It also led me to live in India for a while where I became friends with Yogi Manmoyanand from the Saraswati lineage. He helped me attach knowledge to spirituality and made me see it from a different perspective.

Afterwards, I spent almost 13 years in search for a way to pass on what I learned, but it didn't click into place, until I accepted my calling as a writer. In spite of my many talents I had to recognize that Calle Montségur was right when he said my hands are made for writing.

Shortly after I founded Five Element Writing. It's my way of giving back and inspiring to continuos reflection on life.
