HORMESIS is a process through which moderate stress creates a body response that makes it more resistant to attacks of external or internal agents, promoting a better quality and more robust health. It has been notice ...[Read More]

What is HORMETIX?

What is HORMETIX?

When you get up early in the morning and feel like stretching, moving, being active – this is Hormetix. When you understand that cold, hunger, physical or mental effort, gentle stress, in general, are your allies – this is Hormetix. When you understand the importance of eating mostly real food (not processed commercially) and only when you feel truly hungry – this is Hormetix. Wh ...[Read More]

Everyday cultivation of quality.

Everyday cultivation of quality.

Every single day you wake up in some place, you wake up in some body, you wake up in some mind and you begin to tell yourself your own story from the beginning, again. You remember where you are. You remember who you are. You remember what you need to do. Remember. It is a nice word but do you realize that human memory is re-created over and over again every time we try to “remember” something?! W ...[Read More]

What spirituality is and what it is not?

What spirituality is and what it is not?

I am sitting on the train watching a father and his ten-year-old daughter. They are so nice. He is so engaged and enthusiastic and has so much fun in a conversation with her. They exemplify how one can be towards another. Full of love. I think it is possible to be like this with everything. It requires attention. It needs cultivation. But it is possible. I think when people see it in someone who d ...[Read More]

Vipassana – again…  (memories from the past)

Vipassana – again… This time my destiny led me to the birthplace of Buddha – the town of Lumbini in Nepal.

Follow Nature – Natural health cultivation.

Follow Nature – Natural health cultivation.

The way of Nature Mother Nature provides. Listen to her voice. Listen to her instructions. Her voice is part of you. She will tell you what to do. Use her elements to stay fit and healthy.

Pay attention to your own body and everything around it.   Use breath to ...[Read More]

Natural health cultivation. The simple approach to maintaining your daily health.

Natural health cultivation. The simple approach to maintaining your daily health.

Every day we need to challenge ourselves to stay fit. Without this challenge, there is no growth. Without this challenge, a gradual decline begins. We need to challenge our cells. We need to challenge our mobility. We need to challenge our strength. We need to challenge our immunity. We need to challenge our mind. There are many ways to practice these challenges.

Two sides of the coin.

Two sides of the coin.

Yin and Yang or the aspect of duality is present in everything. Male/Female, Day/Night, Dark/Light etc. etc. It is no surprise then, that our daily cultivation includes both elements. We are not trying to find some imagined quality of neither Yin nor Yang. Quite the opposite – embrace both as an integral part of life. As long as they remain proportional to each other and our particular needs ...[Read More]

Now is all we have.

Now is all we have.

We tend to worry, consciously or unconsciously almost all the time. When we’re in a “good place”, we worry it might end soon, when we’re in a “bad place” we worry it will never end. When we have stability we worry about instability. When we have instability we still worry about it. We spend a lot of time in the past, future and inside our imaginary world that ne ...[Read More]
