Our primary goal is to take care of well-being of our hearts. Don’t be deceived that there are some “others” – creators of our reality. For it’s here and only here, within me and within you, where the change of the world begins. The world WE ARE.
Don’t be deceived that your face will smile only when you see it’s smiley refection in the mirror.
We have acquired practice by walking our own pathways of intense growth and work toward reaching our inner freedom, reaching proficiency in what we teach and experiencing bliss of just Being.
We want to take responsibility for ourselves . We are able to maintain it and also utilize our high consciousness, which is being on higher level than habitual thinking and addictive emotions. We do our best to be non-addicted! And in every second of our life we stay grateful because gratitude is one of the highest vibrations.
We are also aware of the fact that so-called growth sometimes involves pain and sacrifices; however some of those experiences are a must, some are worthy, others are unnecessary or totally useless. That is why we create as much joy, lightness and unity in our life as possible.
Creating Nelumbo we wish to be like nelumbo – like a lotus which is known to be a flower of beauty, a beauty noticed with the first glimpse of an eye.
Some know, that this flower grows in the swamp. Some- more inquisitive - know more, that this flower grows from the seed that has been intensively polished up for a long period of time… Our name refers to that process.
Many of spiritual teachers say that vast majority of people presently living on the Planet Earth are the “old souls” - very well polished seeds who are in need to learn yet another one of their last lessons.
Regardless of what your religious, social or any other preferences are, we help with setting you up onto reaching your goal. We help you with your unique journey through life, help you with your “homework”, so you can do it proceed at ease and with understanding.
And so you too can dance your unique dance with lightness.
Nelumbo is being created by people enriched by many life experiences, who have also gained some skills by attending life lessons and have received some diplomas, references, certificates.
Most of all, we went on the journey toward our inner deeper selves, deciding to surrender our ego to the realm of our soul. The uncompromised “YES” to the Reality turned out to be our most important certificate and the best reference...
…One day we met our Masters and – with their help – we met Ourselves. One day we discovered what inner mastery was and who was the inner Master.
Nelumbo is also a result of another unfolding. A discovery that being aware of consciousness does not have to be painful. Our live is no less than maintaining connection between the Source and our own, enlightened nature.
Dr Izabela Kopaniszyn
A passionate of Unlimited Consciousness. Psychotherapist, transpersonal psychologist, sociologist, coach of holistic life and health as well as personal growth. Spiritual guide. Writer and a poet. Lover of “disappearance” within the silent connection with nature and Everlasting Now. The author of a book:
“I Meaning Whom? About the Ego And Superego As Viruses of Human Operational System Plus a Few Effective Methods of Setting Oneself Free From the “I” Disease.”
Experienced warrior on the paths of his and other’s transformation, conscience hunter familiar with maps of mind windings. A would-be piano virtuoso and a former soldier of special forces. In his everyday mind work he practices mindfulness and fearlessness which he was able to improve while under extreme circumstances during Iraqi war. Many parachute jumps executed by Luki allowed him to establish personal connection with Space.
The death nearness gave him an insight about spiritual worlds, similar to the one reached in the state of deep meditation, hunger or in time close to the birth. It also allowed him to get to the sources of the fearlessness. In the same time his good karma protected him from experiencing taking someone’s life away even though he found himself in many potentially traumatic situations. A positive integration of primitive battlefield, death of his brothers-in-arms, continuous life-threatening danger experiences, with longing for family and tranquility have resulted in spiritual visions and understanding of the Higher Order.
That is why in some tribes - like Celts for example- soldiers experienced in combat automatically became the men of knowledge, priests. In Luki’s case, the dormant priest – heart warrior required extreme experiences to release his potential and to show his natural skills.
Overcoming his trauma (the PTSD syndrome) gave him knowledge and ability of showing the others the path of inner transformation - from dark battlefield into a bright, colorful meadow. Luki thinks that fear, anger, sorrow as well as ecstasy are states of mind and neurophysiology. He is a co-founder of Nelumbo Institute.
Meanwhile he is a happy father of four children and delighted husband of Izabela. Loves to embrace realities, including those created by his wife.
Interests: travelling within undisturbed states of consciousness, meditation, keeping eye on the fire in the fireplace, undisturbed dreaming, playing various instruments, trance music, light interior design, chromotherapy, event organization.
EASY & LUCKY
After experiencing countless forms of separation, longing for “another half”, going through searching and through giving up each one alone and together, they decided to trust the One, that made it hard for them to proceed further without each other. They trusted life lessons. Thus they've been creating Nelumbo to help other people meet their freedom as quickly and painlessly as possible using the very best and quickest methods of life change and personal developement.
Before they eyes met in physical world both had dreams and feelings showing signs of upcoming Rendezvous. He knew at once. She also felt “this” but waited… Waited for him to become a true horse whisperer, to enchant her with his power of softness and persistence. And then, as the wild horses use to do, she laid her head on his shoulder. They became inseparable ever since. Their Unity creates even more unity in the surrounding world and inspires other couples to follow the path of harmony, partnership, and love.
Right away after recognizing Who they were for each other, the gates leading to all the abundance and love opened wide. To follow their soul goal, they quit their “safe” full-time jobs and created Nelumbo Institute.
They have met their beloved master, Mooji, who, in many forms, is always present in their lives. They feel being guided as “Both, One”. They don’t have a single doubt that their pathway is to be lifetime partners and to work with couples and to help them finding Onness. They are also sure that enlightenment “loves couples” as the Source decided to distict itself into Jin and Yang to create "her" and "him" as a primal duality. To be able to offer more to the world, Easy and Luki moved to sunny Portugal.
The power from the Source flowing through them allows them to heal, transform, and restore the energy. Each day, always inseparable even though far away from each other, they send away the gratitude, develop softness, practice and celebrate Oneness. Not only for themselves but also for YOU. Surplus of self-realization and bliss of surrender…

The application of his knowledge and experience combined with the state of inner concentration while creating a birth chart map makes the whole picture of person’s psyche and their faith/ karma tendencies very clear to Wiesław. This also raises a probability of giving the right piece of advice regarding their self-realisation. Wiesław presumes that sky map is one of the very many areas of reality, where correlations describing the man’s faith, personality, and tendencies - similar to fractals - can be observed. He withdraws from the astrology though, which in “star influence” sees cause and effect dependence and which warns against “the danger” of particular constellations. In his opinion any karmic record is appropriate for it serves as a challenge and a task placed by particular person on their own path of development.
