GET TO KNOW ME AND MY JOURNEY
FAMILY & ANCESTORS
I am grateful to my mother and father for giving me life, supporting me, and enriching my life in more ways than I would ever be able to express. Their intelligence, courage, tenacity, and work ethic will always be with me. I thank them and all my ancestors for all they have given me and for whom I have become.
I have lived my life in times and diverse places characterized by fundamental changes, disruption, uncertainty, and profound personal, organizational and societal transformations.
I was born in Bulgaria (Eastern Europe) and I have lived through the transition from a planned to market economy and from communism to capitalism. Having experienced these profound changes firsthand makes it easier for me to see through the multiple layers of stories our societies are built upon, and I will always be grateful for that. These times also taught me valuable lessons about living in times of changes, transformation and disruption.
Having lived in five European countries and worked in an American, Canadian and global, as well as West-European and East European organizational environments has allowed me to appreciate my roots but has also given me the wings to move beyound the limits of my own tribe. I consider that exposure to diversity of people, cultures and societies, alongside with the rich heritage of my ancestors, to be at the core of who I am today.
My experience spans the usual borders and limitations. It includes several industries (management consulting, residential and commercial real estate, publishing, hospitality, education, NGOs, communities) and all types of organizations (start-ups, scale-up, global MNC, NGOs, grass-root movements, and communities).
My formal education includes an Executive MBA from CIty University in Seattle, USA and a Master in Automatics Degree from the Technical University in Sofia, Bulgaria.
My professional certifications include Certifed Management Consultant, Certified Professional in Learning and Peformance, Customer and Employee Loyalty Cetification, and Leadership, Culture & Values Certification with the Barrett Values Centre.
My teachers in Family and Organizational Constellations are Martijn Meima from the Netherlands and Marina Toledo from Canada and Spain. I will always be grateful to both of them for their wisdom and the generosity with which they share their gifts.

My unique way of delivering value is to combine my heritige, experience, education and expertise with integrity, inspiration, intuition, and a "truth to bullshit" and a "focus on beauty and love" approaches.
I am fascinated with the magic role of intuition and inspiration in my life, and I love it when things happen as if magically "through me" and "as me", as opposed to "by me" and "to me".
That feels like surrendering to beauty and love and consciously removing any obstacles on the way. I call that the journey From Scared to Sacred.
WHAT I KNOW
I know that the world will be a better place if we change focus from what we try to avoid to what we want to bring into reality.
I know that by learning to hold opposite perspectives, we can find fresh solutions to our toughest challenges.
I know also that when we connect heart-to-heart, we discover our shared humanity, as well as novel possibilities and meaning.
And last, to live well and be proud of our lives, we need to keep deepening our understanding of "what is" by looking for ways to tap into our innate wisdom and the essence of life. Also, we have to consciously participate in shaping our future by actualizing a new way of living in everything we do.
In the words of people who have expereinced my work.
Wow, what a great enlightening session it was I had with you Natalia today.
I had been struggling trying to figure out what it is that I am supposed to learn when I am confronted with my mother in her challenging health condition at the moment... but all what I learned with you during the session today fell naturally into its place inside of me and made so much sense!
I find it incredible that there is this field of consciousness where we can all tap into, and to learn so much about the questions we have in our personal lives as well as in collective experiences.
This was my very first experience with constellation work and I feel now really interested also in being able to play a role for others who are open to share this wonderful experience together. Thank you so much Natalia for your invitation to this precious experience and I look forward to joining you somewhere again in the future!

QUOTES THAT TOUCH MY HEART
The More Beautiful World
The more beautiful world my heart knows is possible is a world with a lot more pleasure: a lot more touch, a lot more lovemaking, a lot more hugging, a lot more deep gazing into each other’s eyes, a lot more fresh-ground tortillas and just-harvested tomatoes still warm from the sun, a lot more singing, a lot more dancing, a lot more timelessness, a lot more beauty in the built environment, a lot more pristine views, a lot more water fresh from the spring. Have you ever tasted real water, springing from the earth after a twenty-year journey through the mountain? None of these pleasures is very far away. None requires any new inventions, nor the subservience of the many to the few. Yet our society is destitute of them all. Our wealth, so-called, is a veil for our poverty, a substitute for what is missing. Because it cannot meet most of our true needs, it is an addictive substitute. No amount can ever be enough. Many of us already see through the superficial substitute pleasures we are offered. They are boring to us, or even revolting. We needn’t sacrifice pleasure to reject them. We need only sacrifice the habit, deeply ingrained, of choosing a lesser pleasure over a greater.
