Hi! My name is Marzena.
My life story is an incredible, fascinating, challenging and extremely interesting journey of transformations. I have worn many masks, and gone through some profound changes – personal, professional and spiritual. My experiences include being an interpreter, nurse, scientist, mother, wife, yoga teacher and life coach. All of them have provided valuable and profound lessons and blessings. I don’t think that my life will ever be boring, as I love change and challenges, and I am generally very curious about life, beauty, wonder and mystery. What can each day bring and reveal to me?
However, my latest adventure started years ago, when I felt a strong urge to make fundamental changes after having worked in the corporate industry as a scientist for many long years. I felt more and more disillusioned with my life, and was drawn to peace, tranquillity and spirituality. I decided to take some time out to consider what I really wanted to do next. I gave up my job and started my personal journey into the unknown. I was terrified at the beginning, but I meditated and truly surrendered, knowing that an answer would present itself to me. Since then, I have travelled, soul-searched, and focused on meditation, mindfulness and yoga.
After few years I ended up in Thailand, and discovered Tantric school of Hatha Yoga. This has been a very transformative experience, and my life has since taken a different turn. I stayed several months in a remote Thai island, and daily studied the ancient, traditional form of Hatha Yoga, which goes far beyond instruction on physical postures (asanas). The training included: the activation of energy centres (chakras) within the body, the incorporation of breathing techniques (pranayama), the practice of meditation, and an immersion into the complete Yogic philosophy. After such deep and profound yoga teachings, I underwent in-depth training and subsequently qualified as a Yoga teacher.
During my time in Thailand, I took part in a unique, very intensive and transformative program – Women’s Empowerment – teacher training. The program weaved together Tantric and Tao techniques, creative movement, dance, meditation, and feminine empowerment. Body, mind and spirit merged in a celebration of the creative force of goddess in every woman. This training was an integration of women’s traditions stemming from Indian Tantra, Tibetan Buddhism, Sufism, Shamanism and western alchemy. This connects the creative, sexual energies with the awareness of the heart and stillness of the mind. The teaching addressed our innate longing to balance our inner Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine into a state of harmony and Oneness.
I am very fortunate, as I have managed to find my happy medium, a fine balance between the Eastern and Western Philosophies. As a nurse and a scientist who worked in the medical profession and in research, I am able to combine my medical knowledge with the mystical wisdom of the East. In my Feminine Transformations session I create an awakening /transformative method which is not only backed up by modern science but also empowered by ancient wisdom.
I practice yoga and meditate every day, and have also trained in Tantric and Taoist practices, Somatic Experiencing, myofascial release, Chi Net Sang (abdominal massage), tension and trauma release exercises (TRE), mindfulness as a stress reduction therapy, and transformative somatic life coaching.
I have had many extraordinary teachers, from all walks of life, who have profoundly influenced my life and work. These include:
Non-duality: Rupert Spira and Adyashanti
Trauma therapy and psychology: Dr Peter Levine and Dr Bessel van der Kolk
Mystic poets: Meister Eckhart and Rumi
My life motto is:
Live your truth. Express your love. Share your enthusiasm. Take action towards your dreams. Walk your talk. Dance and sing to your music. Embrace your blessings. Make today worth remembering.
