Extracts from Agata’s Bio:
How did I get here? I grew up in Poland where life was wild and often difficult. Still, I always felt connected to the mystery of it, to the miraculous nature of things. At the age of 14 I had a serious operation on my spine, which left me immobilized for three months and covered in plaster for nine. I really tasted the fragility of my existence and realized the preciousness of my moving body.
Delighted to regain it, I threw myself into the wild abandon of rave dancing. I intuitively knew my body was a huge resource and I wanted it back. My strong spirit propelled me on a journey to England, where I studied the English language at Emerson College, then Speech and Drama, followed by an extensive theatre tour. I loved the feeling of presence I experienced on stage and giving value to ordinary moments. During that time I first came across various modern and traditional spiritual teachings. It was a relief for me to recognize my nature as consciousness but I also used it to avoid pain and lived from my strategies for the most part.
Life invited me deeper. The shock in my nervous system caught up with me and I became quite unwell. Training as a therapist (in Play Therapy and Psycho-Kinesiology), I was learning about the body-mind connection and beginning to surrender to my needs. That was when I had the good fortune to meet the work of Fanny Behrens, Colin Harrison and their teacher, Adam Bradpiece. In my first workshop it became apparent that I was full of theory but knew little of integrated experience. I fell in love with the work and it supported me immensely in the process of healing my shattered body. As I was able to loosen my identification with the discomfort, the necessary healing process could run its course. About six years into it, I came across Bodymind Attunement developed by Ruth Noble, specializing in trauma release through deep body awareness and movement. Doing a lot of individual developmental work and eventually training as a practitioner, created an inner holding that allowed me to hold others.
As a result I have developed a very inclusive, “feminine” approach to working with people. From the ground of presence I listen to and honour the unfolding of the bodymind. I see every aspect of ourselves as a valid expression of the whole, longing to come home.
