If you received a personal message from a Sage from far away, would you pay attention to that? And so, it is with our dreams.

HERE IS MY “WHY”

Dreams & Imagination
Can Change Your Life

As a 6-year-old child I had to leave my hometown and my parents in Siberia and move to a sanatorium in the Ural Mountains with a goal to improve my health. I spent the whole year there without knowing when I would be able to return home.

During that time, I stayed connected with my parents mostly through my fantasies, day-dreaming and rare letters.

Fantasies that were very helpful to me as a child, became a false refuge in my adult life. I would keep fantasizing about a new project or skill but would do little work to progress. I would relate more to imagined people than to real ones.

Then, in 1992 Stanley Krippner, a professor of psychology at Saybrook University visited my hometown in Siberia. I translated his workshop on dreams. This led to my learning about mythology, Joseph Campbell’s The Hero’s Journey, meditation, and presence.

I eventually discovered how body and emotional intelligence bring me back to the reality of life so that I can use my imagination for innovation and creativity, rather than as an escape. Being present, listening consciously and committing to my projects became and still is my daily practice.

When I studied at the Leadership and Transformation program of the Hendricks Institute, CA, I was asked to present on the interpretation of dreams.

The presentation was a great success. It confirmed to me the importance of the dialogue between our conscious mind and the images that come from our depth.

My creativity exploded. I studied the writings of Carl Jung, presented on dreams, led workshop on conscious global living, recited poetry, produced videos, and published my book on wonder questions.

I do what I do today because more people need to know the power of their dreams, daydreams, and imagination.

I see many highly productive people in their mid-life looking for a new direction in life, asking themselves big questions and searching for deeper meaning.

Dreamwork gives you an access to a great source of renewal and direct connection with your truth and natural creativity.

You probably worked hard so that you could provide for your family and bring a positive change into the world. It might also be that a big piece of you, the desire of your soul, went into hiding and stayed unexpressed. You have the power to reclaim this forgotten piece now.

Dreamwork combined with consciousness will provide you with an opportunity to enrich your own life and contribute to the world on a
new level.

You know there was an important message in your dream, but “poof” - the memory is gone.

Your friend shares a dream with you, but you don’t know how to help them understand it.

You’re about to accept a job offer, but you have scary dreams. Shall you just ignore them?

In your dream you are being late, chased, unprepared for an exam... How to shake the feeling off?

How I am different

I value both, your achievements in the world and your inner life of dreams, images, and emotions.

I’m here to help you fully experience, embrace and express yourself.

I was privileged to study with the world-class teachers, and I want to share what I have learned with you: body and emotional intelligence, Gay and Katie Hendricks; mindfulness, Tara Brach; Conscious Leadership, Grace Clayton; the Jungian psychology, James Hollis, and many other wonderful teachers.

I see your deepest individual uniqueness as well as the global multiplicity of your being.

Like so many of us who has lived through turbulent times, and relocated to other courtiers and cultures, I learned to appreciate how multidimensional we all are.

Many of my clients are globally mobile professionals. This brings another layer of richness to our inner world, images and dreams.
