Maika participated the very first retreat inspired by the Three Tenets of the Zen Peacemakers here in Finland. During the Helsinki Street Retreat in 2017 she proved to be an amazing beggar providing money, food and even wine for the whole group! She was so struck by the retreat she was willing to help organizing more projects here in Finland. She has been one of the active members of the Peacemakers Finland right from the beginning. 

She was the local Spirit Holder for the first Bearing Witness retreat to the Finnish Civil War Prison Camps in 2018 lead by Zen teacher Roshi Frank De Waele from Belgium. 


In addition to her Christian spiritual practice, she is also an avid practitioner of Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga, she studies Hebrew In the Synagogue of Helsinki, and she has been studying Zen with Roshi Barbara Salaam Angyo Wegmüller from Switzerland since 2018.
