Born in Paris, France, Vanya is a film director and photographer.
Since experiencing a soul retrieval, Vanya has learnt shamanism step by step and this path has brought him great joy and profound self-awareness. Along the way he has been gifted with fine teachers and friends – both in the ordinary and non-ordinary reality.
As an avid explorer, he always spent hours musing in natural places around the world, whispering his thoughts, sorrows, hopes and fears.
During his travels (throughout Asia, Oceania, America and Europe), he is ever seeking new knowledge of healing practices in various cultures. These adventures have been enhanced by his ongoing studies with the Foundation for Shamanic Studies.
Vanya is a FSS Certified Shamanic Counselor (C.S.C.) and has been providing many shamanic services: power animal retrieval, extraction, soul retrieval, divination, psychopomp and other healing practices, depending on the requester’s wishes.
Vanya organizes drums circles in Paris and Bangkok in order to enable people to reach their physical, mental and spiritual goals.
