Hi, my name is Daria.
I am an opera singer who has graduated from the Royal College of music this summer. Being an opera singer is not just all about practicing and learning new music, it is about being healthy physically and mentally.
For the past six months I have been reading lots of books, articles and watching many documentaries about the mind and thinking about how I can use my mind for me rather than against me. We all have that chatterbox in our heads that we need to learn how to quieten. Eckhart Tolle’s book “The power of the now” really sparked something in me and made me feel like there is a way of living at peace with oneself.
I have also been looking into my nutrition and although I have always considered myself as someone who eats healthily, after watching many documentaries and reading up on plant based diets I realised that this is something I would want to find out more about. I have been a vegetarian since July and I have become fully plant based earlier this month and I feel incredible. I want to learn more about this way of eating so that I can help and advise others as well.
I have found two courses on the “School of Natural health sciences” website that are exactly what I have been looking for. I saw the “Mindfulness course” and couldn’t believe that this holistic approach to mental health existed as a course and as therapy. Then I saw the “Vegetarian and vegan nutrition course” which is what I’ve been wanting to learn about. I want to go the extra mile for myself and for others and find out what we can do as people and as singers in order to reach our full potential and I really think that this approach is the way to go. I have such a deep rooted desire to help people have happier and more fulfilled lives, especially considering we live in a world where so many people are stressed and overwhelmed. These two courses will educate me and give me the opportunity to help people as a holistic therapist.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to read this. I would be so, so grateful for any donations, big or small. Thank you for your kindness, generosity and support.
All my love,
