Agni Tzvete (Bulgaria) – Agni Tzvete has traveled extensively both in the outer and the inner world only to discover that life is a never ending journey and no matter how purposeful it may seem at times it has no inherent meaning and no goal, it is a play – a leela.

Born in Bulgaria, with master’s degree in International Relations from Denmark and England, she worked 10 years as a political activist in Africa. After a great disillusionment about the world we live in, she explored the inner realms of existence in a search for the ultimate freedom. During her living in Work as Meditation program at the Osho International Meditation Resort in India, Agni took sannyas – a spiritual initiation that triggered a powerful process of transformation in her – physically, mentally and emotionally. She then rooted her new born self back into this earth through shamanic journeys deep into the Amazon jungle and by remembering the whispers of the ancients from the great Andean region. The path led her to Egypt – the land that is an epiphany of her love, her faith and her passions.
