My author story is fairly simple.
I somehow always wanted to write. I loved literature way back in school and college and my interest in creating music had definitely lead the way, during the course of time, towards exploring the artistic and imaginative side of writing, as well.
So, I started up writing in early april, 2018 and never stopped eversince. I have never thought that writing creates such much joy and freedom.
I love spirituality, Buddhist teachings, Christian Orthodox teachings and I am embracing all the other ways that there are (Japanese Zen, indian/hindu philosophy, middle eastern religions etc.). I think they all point to finding yourself or awakening as a full human being in this life. So yes, I am planning on writing a lot about this, packing the knowledge and insights I gathered over the years, that helped me cope with difficult situations in life, when they arise, or simply, see life from a fresh and joyful perspective. Talking about spirituality, it is a never-ending process, that unfolds like a spiral towards understanding who we are and being able to integrate love, forgiveness, gratitude and equanimity in our lives, understanding oneness and creating the basic ground of peace where every beautiful thing can start to manifest.
I also love science-fiction. It usually explores unexplored realms and stands at the forefront of science and what we know that exists, always being one step ahead what society is. I will definitely publish fiction as well, not only science-fiction, as I think writing fiction books is an excellent way to develop your creativity, creating your own version of the world, to the smallest details.

Mindfulness in Your Everyday Life (The Golden Path book 1)released on the 21st of August, 2020
ISBN : 9783969178157197 pages
The simple practice of mindfulness, which can be explained in a few words as "directing our awareness in the present moment", can help us maintain a clear mind and sharp attention, and it is discussed, explained, and analyzed from many different perspectives, uncovering most of the facets of conscious living, in our today's society.
This book is all about mindful living, where two different practices are recurrently present, as a means to sustain our conscious approach: mindfulness and meditation. I am presenting simple techniques that will sustain a conscious approach to life, where your perception will always be clear and rooted in the present moment, and your life will always have a stress-free, relaxed, and aware point of view.
Even if you already know about mindfulness or that you are looking to find a resource to explain it more in-depth for you, this book manages to touch most of the aspects that are related to our mind, to our relationship that we have with this world, to the direct experience that we can have when we befriend and transcend our Ego, and mostly, to our personal relationship with the dynamic and ever-changing present moment.
I hope that everyone that reads my book will get to witness, in time, their pristine, clear, and natural state of mind, getting to gradually see the gaps of thought, through the practice of mindfulness and meditation, and finally, witnessing the unwavering mind of no-thought, which will illuminate and radically change their perception on life.

ISBN : 9783965086005139 pages
Throughout our lives, we all experience a gradual and slow process of Awakening. Those of us seeking the spiritual side of life are using centuries-old practices to support this process, by using meditation, yoga, silent prayer, devotion, contemplation, reciting mantras, or just keeping a mindful approach during our day. By being more mindful and centered every day, we become more compassionate, we develop gratitude for what we have and gain a clear perception of our world.
Thus, we start to love more, give and receive more, appreciate things more, manifesting a more balanced, happier, and abundant life.
I wrote these reflections with carefulness to encompass most of the spiritual aspects that are present on a spiritual path and with the hope that by contemplating these paragraphs of wisdom, this will create for you that much-needed spaciousness where you can finally attain the freedom that each of us is meant to experience here, on Earth.
