#1 – Where are you originally from? Please describe in few sentences of your background, including where and how you grew up. 

I am from Poland and I grew up in a city Katowice. Until recently, the city was famous mainly  [due to] mining industry, today is a place geared to high culture. I grew up in the belief that tremendous value in life is [about] learning and development opportunities. Once I dreamed about leaving my homeland, now I know that this place gave me a huge baggage of which are invaluable in my journey through the world.

#2 – How do you get to do what you are doing now? 

I am still looking for new challenges. I love doing everything [on] my own. I have found out that functioning in a contemporary Word is merely based on a creative attitude,  that’ why inventiveness as well as creating new ideas is my mission.

#3 – When is a recent ‘a-ha’ moment, or a wake up call for you that you would like to share?

After read a book [by] Clarissa Pinkola Eates, now I always listen [to] my heart and intuition. It makes me feel confident on how to fulfill any dreams and which way I should follow.

#4 – What is your motto, or if the essence of your retreat/workshop is boiled down into one sentence – what would it be and why?

Looking for authentic direct contacts with people,  avoiding posing and being artificial. For me this is a spiritual aspects of yoga.

#5 – Who is your Museflower – something from nature that inspires you the most along your spiritual journey & why?

Tranquil Zen gardens, where empty space is more important than the strength of the object. In such a place you feel a connection to nature, its pulsating energy. You feel her presence, like when you meet a master of meditation.

#6 – Why should people join a retreat with you? 

It’s a choice you have made to practice self-care and self-love. It’s certain that yoga means for me stretching and strength, but mostly I want to have a chance of going further with how to serving others and make them happier.
