I’ve always been unconventional, an untamed soul. I studied Fine Arts, but I have always questioned what it means to be an artist.
After years of searching, I finally understood that each of us is an ARTIST who paints a picture of its existence.
Over the last decade, I have created the Local Heroes company to promote creativity, individuality, and entrepreneurship. It was my answer to globalization.
I had many conversations with small business owners. Entrepreneurship has become my back door to conversations about consciousness and overcoming obstacles.
My spiritual curiosity and a deep desire for freedom have taken me on adventures around the world. I have had the good fortune to go through Gestalt Awareness Studies.
I devoted myself to work with consciousness and deepened knowledge of healing principles, intuitive knowing, open-hearted listening and the facilitation of transformation. I’ve participated in many workshops, I found mentors and visionaries …
I have studied mindfulness and movement meditation practice for many years. Dance taught me how to understand myself better when my mind was trying to fool me. Years of inner work led me to the place where consciousness meets with feelings and the soul embodies.
I’m very grateful for having a chance to meet on my self-development path amazing teachers, influencers, therapists, artists who helped me become who I truly am.
Between them are Andrea Juhan, Kathy Altman, Lori Saltzman and other teachers from Open Floor International school of embodiment brought me to another level of understanding of who we are as human beings, how can we relate in a better way, what connects us – and how to transform and feel fully alive.
I’m also grateful for meeting Danielle LaPorte on my path (writer, philosopher, artist, entrepreneur and public speaker), author of Fire Starter Sessions, Desire Map. She helped me to see my entrepreneurial skills and gave me permission to follow my soul desire.
And all of you who continue to mirror my presence, who make me stay authentic and see my shadows so I can continue to grow and therefore as an Open Floor teacher and Mindfulness facilitator I can be of better service to you. Thank you for being here!

Tamara! This was a real cutting-edge workshop among those I’ve been attendig for years. It helped leading my thoughts in the direction of the desired. Of the super exciting “yet-non-physical”. In the direction where I can feel lighter, without lacking something, strong, capable, confident, worthy, inspired, amazing… Although we did not talked much I have the feeling that there was a great emphasis on our own responsibility of our vibrational state of being. I learned feeling super is kind of matter of our choice – and if we dare to make it, an upward spiral begins working pretty instantaneously.
It’s okay, I’ve heard this already from a handful of contemporary gurus. However, all this understanding combined with day long movement practices (and instruction-less free dances) have made these so alive, so true, so vivid, valid and authentic that it could reach some very deep area inside…
Many thanks Tamara, for leading the group towards these experiences!”

Thank you for a brilliant workshop. Thank you for walking your talk and living from your soul. Anyone who values themselves as a unique soul who wants to express themselves to the full and is willing to trust in the process and your skilful guidance cannot value to bring away lasting richness.
Every aspect was thoroughly professional and I know you will go from strength to strength.
Dear Tamara, thank you for being so caring around us. I`ve been landing very happy in my everyday real world. Smiles and deep relaxing breaths are visiting me and I feel like having done something very precious for myself.
About the workshop I want to say, that the theory of first declaring the wanted feelings and then to find out what to do, is very helpful for me. I had been thinking nearly my entire life about things, which could be quite hard and desperate. Only the last few years stuff got more clear and I got more and more relaxed. But being shy and introverted didn`t make it easier to live the life I imagined.
So having many feelings formulated and named and kind of explained, my head could calm down calm down and let the body and soul take the leadership. This is where your personal style how to make the workshop with so much dancing, plays a major role. I noticed in the beginning when everybody started to move, I was a bit overstrained or overwhelmed and didn`t know what to do. But by continuously pushing myself like, this is it, just do it, it got easier and easier. And when I finally understood that no one was watching or kind of judging me, I lost even more of my shells. This was a big step for me. You were supporting us by the chosen music, there were different moods and feelings that came out and wanted to be expressed. Ten years ago I would not have believed I even could like this. But now things are different. And on the last day I felt so sure and I could kind of „control” the room, the space, and interact with the people at a different level – that was magic. I haven`t experienced this with so many people before. Thank you very much for this! Plus, I feel like I got a level up at feeling self-confident and self-assured. And I learned once more to enjoy my body and to move.
So now the seed is planted and about to grow. I`m so happy!
