A spiritual journey is an inward search that a person goes on to explore different sides of life and the self.

A spiritual journey can be either a personal spiritual discovery or a search for answers to life’s biggest questions.

Sometimes in the end the seeker realizes that they are one with all of life and that everything’s existence is interconnected.

Spiritual journey is an interesting concept  that can be approached by different angles, either religious and new age. This program is dedicated to interviews with different people to try to answer these questions. But not just that, also to observe what is the journey of an individual’s spirit, how can the spirit grow and develop? Should you necessarily do something specific to be happy, self-sufficient and successful on that path?

Our guest for the third episode of Spiritual Journey interviews is Vera Lapitskaya. Vera is a performer, dance maker, art educator and curator.

We are going to explore the journey of her spirit through dancing, improvisation, movement and body. She likes to ‘’reimagine the traditional art forms by pushing the borders and going beyond the surface of narrative meanings. Through the years I have been exploring a multi-layered proximity of the human body to space, time, sounds, objects and environment. Instant and intuition are the essences which inspire and support my work the most’’. 

In our discussion, we have covered Vera’s life journey, her career path and motivation in life, and of course how movement can be beneficial for everyone if made consciously. More information about Vera you can find on her website https://www.veralapitskaya.com and IG @notabene_arte.
