A teacher of English (formerly), a translator/editor (still) and, most of all, a self-taught visionary artist, colour therapist (I sense the vibrations of colours) and the One-Who-Mends-What-Is-Broken-And-Beautifies. I love all forms of beauty.
A spontaneous kundalini awakening, that I experienced in 2015 triggered off a phenomenon known as “the shamanic illness” and turned my whole world upside down. This was not a gentle invitation from Spirit to evolve. It felt like a punch in the stomach and got my attention immediately! A wave of shattering events overtook my life. Friends and loved ones that were nowhere to be found when I needed them the most. Physical inability to take on a regular job. No means of supporting myself. Living in constant haste and in a do-do-do mode was no longer an option. Any time I tried to do things the old way, in a hurry, excruciating physical pain would reappear with a vengeance. It became crystal clear to me: if I want to stay alive (I did!), I need to change my way of doing life completely.
As a result of practicing a profound dharma called Prajña Akasagarbha (“wisdom hidden in the womb of space”), a gift for visionary and archetypal art has opened in me. I consider myself a harmonizer and it is my joy to match elements that are seemingly mismatched and give new life to things that are damaged or for some other reason considered useless. This passion for resurrecting and beautifying things, combined with my love and dedication to Spirit, Mother Earth and All-Things-Mystical, has organically led me to art upcycling and creating my own system of energy-encoded paper art collages for colour therapy, shadow work and integration. Gazing at my art facilitates self-discovery, self-healing and reaching the state of inner equilibrium.
The need for slowing down and going back to a more natural rhythm of life gave birth to my one-person company “Pracownia CREATIVA. Twórcze rozwiązania” (CREATIVA Studio. Creative Solutions). Currently my professional offer includes my art collage system, art collage workshops, meditation/contemplation instructions for adults and chidren and sessions of astrocoaching, as well as translation services (mainly English-to-Polish).
As for my spiritual background, I feel a strong connection to Tibetan and Chinese Buddhism yet I also have Christian roots. Currently I practice in the Chinese Esoteric School of Buddhism (Hanmi Buddhism) under the guidance of Vajra Acharya Zhi Wu. I am part of such global spiritual movements as The Sophia Code led by Kaia Ra and Matt Kahn’s All For Love. I am an ardent promoter and practitioner of shadow work, especially in the sense promoted by Richard Rudd, author of The Gene Keys. Embracing your higher purpose. I value and try to embody Nonviolent Communication (NVC).
I love dancing in the company of like-minded people to the music that moves both my body and my soul, and in my pre-kundalini era I used to organize craaazy fancy dress balls. Take a look at some photos capturing the moments of our (only partially) controlled dance madness!
