I had a plan to make a Lion mask for the last week of solstice mask seminar. I was quite confused, when, due to my weak sculpting ability, my mask turned out to look like a pig, not a lion. I thought that lions are more sexy animals than pigs.
But the Great Dreaming Spirit has it's own creative ideas, more magical than mine. The mask started to live its own life. After I painted it, I realized that the ma...
Lina is a yoga teacher. She has developed her own style of exercises for women, and has been teaching it for a while in groups, or with private clients. At this moment she is in the process of developing her online program. When she started filming her webinar, she got stuck and lost all her passion. She came to me for a session, complaining of losing her energy and a sudden lack of interest in her webinar idea.
Last class of TERRApia School of transformation one year program completed.
A lot of my students came to the school to find their creative path. Not this group. All students in this group have already achieved certain levels of personal development and creative expression. In this group we have seminar leaders, teachers, performers, artists, and accomplished athletes.
Why did they come to the TERRApia school?
Because they aim fo...
Earlier in October I became obsessed with the idea of making an owl mask, after I pet an owl at the Owl's Cafe in Tokyo. This experience awoke something new in me. I started to look at the owl's pictures and contemplated on the owl's spirit. It took two months, until I could express it through this mask.
This is my first wearable mask , I am officially ready for Halloween.

We started new group of TERRApia school of transformation in Boston this weekend. Such a great team of creative, curios and passionate students! We have studied and practiced Process work methods on how to work with dreams and body symptoms. I feel super happy and accomplished at this moment!
Last weekend was quite crazy for me. I went to New York, which by the way, is now a 2.5 hour drive away. Over the weekend I got a lot done: opened a new location for a women’s circle, hung out with friends, worked with clients, visited my family. My work and play weekend was successful, but when I got back to my cozy forest home, I felt totally out of balance. My body was burning and my thoughts were going at a crazy speed. To...
On Saturday we had a day-long journey - sensual yoga, shamanic breath-work, Russian banya, firewalk, art class. My students led most of the retreat. I led firewalk. I think firewalk is the passing exam at my magician's school :) The retreat atmosphere is like I travel to the most interesting world destinations with my dream team.
Mandala is an ancient method to project the stories, which happen in your inner realm abstract colorful patterns, put inside the circle. Why is it a circle? In the human psyche the circle represents “The Whole” – earth, womb, Sun. Shamans, Buddhists and alchemists used the mandala as an important transformational method.
