Diana is the founder of “The Femmepowered Being”. She is born on 9th of May in the beginning of 80ties. Diana has been vegetarian for more than 20 years holding dearly to her heart the values of non-violence, compassion and the power of personal example as the most influential agent of change and transformation. As any Taurus woman she digs her heels deep into finding her own self-worth, learning from Nature and enjoying the simple pleasures of life. She loves to cook, eat, sing and dance and enjoys beauty in all forms. Diana dreams about a world which is governed by love, justice, truth, peace, equality and freedom.
As most girls in the world I was introduced into womanhood with the vague idea of what to expect. I got my first period at home and I remember hiding and being ashamed of it because nobody explained me anything. Eventually my grandmother found out and I remember vaguely that she, my mother and me made something like a small ritual where I should have placed my hand on a plant. Never figured out why and never really asked. I was just 11 years old. One of the first in my class to have a period. Growing up I have a definitely hate relationship with my period – it was inconvenient, messy, I had to pretend it didn’t exist, it didn’t hurt and that I was not affected. On top of that I didn’t have access to high quality sanitary products and was always afraid that I might leak through and it will be seen (which happened several times in my life).
As a young woman in my twenties I have suffered frequent and severe PMS symptoms with very painful cramps, deep emotional and mental disturbance and definitely my period felt like a curse and something I need to endure because I was a woman in exchange of the possibility to become a mother one day. In my early thirties these symptoms have worsened but with a new nuance added – strong suicidal and deeply negative emotional states just before the bleeding followed with complete surrender and altered state of consciousness. I couldn’t understand how my period can give me so much physical and emotional suffering and at the same time give me opportunity for complete surrender and spiritual oneness. Being eternally curious within the fields of health, spirituality, nutrition and fitness, I was looking consciously and unconsciously for all this to make sense. And it did when I came across the teachings of the Red School and the Menstrual Cycle Awareness.
This practice, the knowledge and the wisdom I gained through working consciously with my own cycle for more than 2 years, completely transformed my relationship with myself, my body, my sense of femininity, connection with the Nature and other women. As a Holistic Health & Lifestyle Coach for women, this was the missing piece to weave everything I knew about female health & wellbeing into comprehensive and multilayered holistic approach.
I have decided to found “The Femmepowered Being” Company because I could see how my life has been transformed during this process and brought me so much more clarity about my life path, authentic confidence about my gifts and talents and deep inner knowing of who I am and what is my role into this world. I know how hard it is to feel alone without tools and guidance, not knowing how to start arranging the puzzle of your life. Every journey is a unique one, yet we all go through similar steps of growth and challenges. I would love to help you navigate your inner journey of self-discovery with compassion, courage, self-acceptance and faith reminding you that whatever you experience, this helps you grow and mature, even if it is hard to see it.
