Zori is an Intuitive Business Coach, Shamanic Guide & Founder of Widening Circles online community, based in San Marcos la Laguna, Guatemala.
With an MSc in Engineering Business Management from University of Warwick, UK, Zori spent the early years of her career running her own innovation consultancy in her home country Bulgaria. She then focused on the field of IT, co-founding and managing the strategic, business and operational aspects of several startup projects in Bulgaria, Romania, Italy and Singapore. She took all the knowledge and experience gained in her entrepreneurial journey and took a leap into the unknown to find a new purpose, a way of being and creating that would be more aligned to her heart and essence.
She found her new path in Bali, arriving to a point of clarity that in the face of mortality the only sane thing to do was to commit to living fully. And that living fully to her meant a deepening of connection with self, other and nature and creating spaces to share that with others. From that awareness, in early 2018 she started holding space for individuals in 1:1 coaching context and for community in her Connection Playground initiative (which began live in Bali and during COVID transitioned online, reaching thousands of people from all over the world):
Her approach draws inspiration from her own entrepreneurial journey, her training in Deep Transformational Coaching & Re:patterning, Inner Dance, Authentic Relating & Circling, Internal Family Systems, her guides and mentors, her prior work with Connection Playground and Deep Adaptation online communities, her own journey with shamanism, body- and nature-based practice, plant medicine, ritual and indigenous cultures, and her lived experience with navigating loss, grief and trauma.
In the spaces she holds, Zori is committed to fostering a way of living and creating in alignment with Nature within and around, from a place of attunement to our organic authentic unfolding which she likes to call ‘the way of emergence’. She invites an orientation towards what is present and alive for you, giving it the space it needs to inform your forward movement in who you are becoming and what you are creating.
