I write psychology-focused, mind-stalking articles that get published mainly in printed Czech & Slovak lifestyle mags, such as Moja Psychologia (My Psychology), Psychologie DNES (Psychology Today), or in various women's mags.
You can find them all here.
The main inspiration for my writing is Alain de Botton, Esther Perel, Brene Brown, Sam Harris, and many other exciting psychologists, philosophers, authors, and meditators who have something to say.
My own path strongly resembles my mind - a chaotic maze echoed with conversation splinters and random ADD thoughts.
The sprint started somewhere in a small dirty but colorfully eventful mafia town in Slovakia and continued through the noble, yet somewhat dully settled Vienna, where I studied translation and kept spilling beers from a can in student halls.
After that, I stumbled over to London, and stayed for eight years, unbelievable, I know, it started as an irrational move to study European Business (that didn't even scratch my memory) and continued through odd sales jobs ending with years in financial journalism... though not as a Journalist, of course! ...until I finally got the TLC of a proper English school of Journalism.
Do you think I became a Journalist after that?
There's no such thing as a happy end. There is no such thing as an "end". Except for death, maybe. Yet, some would still be doubtful there.
And that is the best news for us - me and you - and everyone else who has not "become" what they were meant to become.
Creative process is like life itself - always changing.
I know your struggle.
After the journo school, which I loved and hated simultaneously (a normal, healthy relationship if you ask) it took me another year of procrastination, one long trip around the world, and a plethora of spiritual and non-spiritual workshops where I wept, roared and went little nuts, to find some courage to expose my work.
Yet, here we come. So here's the deal...
All it takes is to start writing.
I invite you to fall in love with Julia Cameron's Artist's Way - like I did - and share with me that layer of your personality that does not want you to become who you are.
This method is for everyone who wants to rediscover the dormant artist inside. Give him a little compassion. See the excuses for staying in.
I will be happy to accompany you on your adventure. I'll hold you accountable if you let me and support you all the way.
My charge is 37 euro/hour. There are about 12 weeks to finish the Artist Way, but it can take up to a year. Whatever pace works for you.
I speak Slovak, Czech, German, and English - whatever your tongue.
You can try one session per week or bi-weekly, though people like to tailor their schedules according to their pace.
This is your time.
