I am called Merim, a nomad originating from Central Asia. My mother tongue is Russian, but I also speak English and Dutch fluently. I lived in Amsterdam for 5 years. I loved the diversity of the city and its remarkable historical monuments of pride and pain. Since 2018 I have been living in beautiful Amersfoort closer to nature with my beloved family. My husband is Dutch and we have 2 children together: Viktor and Kira.
I study Applied Psychology at the University of Applied Sciences in Amsterdam, it means I am trained to create interventions for human flourishing in conscious connection with surrounding. Very quickly I realized, that conventional education programs in social studies lack huge part of body and energy, soul perspectives. I am intuitive autodidact, who integrates new insight by following own womb wisdom and receives feedback from contemporary revolutionists in the field, like Michel Odent and doula Liliana Lammers.
It is important to come as a reminder of bringing back soul into natural human activities. I am driven by love.
Serene presence, doula
When else if not during pregnancy we experience most rapid personal growth, spiritual awakening? It is time when we at once are humble to experience life dancing with death, when we are open to prove ourselves wrong, meet the realness and, if we are courageous enough, to put down all masks and express ourselves freely.
Home birth to my daughter Kira unleashed the primal feminine Goddess in me. A word ‘doula’ means “the one who serves” from ancient Greek. To serve to life giving – creator of all, Goddess is ultimate commitment.
I will recognise every part of transitioning. I will see you and dive in without fear and show you me in most authentic way. I will hold space from the place of zero expectation, responsibility ownership and trust.
To be born or to die means to go through Rite of Passage; journey from Maiden to Mother is another stage of human transformation and questions of all sorts arise. I am there to be present, to listen, to share my personal experience and seek for ancestral knowledge within together.
