Denisa

Photographer, traveler and visionary. My entrepreneurial spirit is, both in business and photography, and ever since I can remember I have been fascinated by humanity and our immense cultural heritage. Yet, I found myself denying my Slavic roots for a long time and resonated more with Brazilian or Italian culture. But, it was when traveling to the heart of Amazon rainforest, where I fell in love with the symbolism of different indigenous tribes, that  I realized just how rich is our Slavic pagan heritage. I feel a call to create magic together with local artists and craftsmen alike, while celebrating our origins.

Zuzana

Global voyageur, spiritual seeker, NGO founder and 4x published author. What is my connection to Slavic culture? I feel it in my flesh, my blood, my bones. Destiny took me away from my home and into the New World when I was a child. I grew up in Canada and the US and went on to live in 10 countries across 4 continents before returning to my Slavic motherland as an adult. I have dedicated my research, doctorate and professional life to sharing the story of Slovakia with world. Thousands of hours and four published books later, I could no longer deny the calling of my soul. The time had come for me to delve deep into the forgotten wisdom of my ancient ancestors, their gods and wise ways. My greatest wish and desire is to help the world re-discover the wisdom of the Slavic civilization

Gabriela

Scholar, storyteller, published author, healer and wanderer. I grew up surrounded by the playful magic of the Slavic soul and the wisdom of Slavic myths and legends. Yet, it took living across several countries in Europe, the Middle East and Africa to truly grasp its unique and timeless essence. As a scholar, I strive to understand and represent the Slavic way of living and seeing the world. As a writer and a storyteller I seek to sooth and restore minds and hearts exhausted by busy urban lifestyles. The wisdom of my foremothers and forefathers, passed down across countless generations, offered a healing solace when I needed it the most. And today, in a world filled with uncertainty and turmoil, I crave for nothing more than to share the universal wisdom of nature and our ancestors.
