Mevanya translates to “I came to see you” in the tribal language Ewe. This is the guiding principle for Mevanya as an individual, as a community and a way of life. We believe that any human being enters this world with everything ever needed. You already got all the answers within you.
With this approach we support you on your path back to yourself, into your very own truth. In individual, couple and group work, transformative retreats and events we create a unique realtime access to your self. With tantra, classical medicine, science and trauma work we empower your most true and integrated version of YOU. In this we do not follow a scripted path but fully embrace every moment on this authentic and true evolution.
We are an international team of extraordinary and interdisciplinary beings, not just versatilely educated and certified, but truly empathetically embedded into your journey.

Pavlos has been and still is on an intensive journey of self reflection, truth and findings. His willingness and ability to grow with and in every group is extraordinary. In creating a safe space he welcomes all truths allowing all beings to enrich one another. Pavlos softly and conciously invites to reflect, to find one self and loose one self again, welcoming the ever changing stream of life. His invitation to every being: 'In this crazy ride we might be swinging from the magic to meaningless, from effortless being to striving, from being together to feeling alone, from the depths of cynical reason to ecstatic spiritual meaning. In this vast sea of existence we can always meet in the space of our shared humanity, and swim there in grace, holding each other, inspiring each other.' Pavlos

During her studies of medicine, Mevanya realized that she needed to shift towards a holistic approach to wellbeing. She is educated in alternative and plant medicine and spent 15+ years working in Trauma therapy with focus on sexual abuse and PTSD. Mevanya is trained in TRE, EMDR, CTP, PE, SIT, dearmoring, yoga and various forms of meditation. She combines whatever is true for you in a holistic shamanic approach.
Mevanya has been healing since she was a child. Coming from a family of healers, she reconnected with her given gifts and is on a never ending path to deepen the full range of her powerful skills. By going back to the land of her father, she brings back even more truths, secrets and long forgotten knowledge.
Mevanya studied the path of the heart in her tantric journey and helped others in individual and couple sessions, has been holding space for groups in workshops and retreats. Her love is her path, her life is her journey. Through her deep knowledge and passion for every being she encourages everyone, who feels called, to go deep and find their very individual freedom. Her calling is to build strong foundations so people are enabled to grow in joy and ease.
To build this foundation she holds safe containers for going deep into trauma and shadow work. In all of her retreats, Mevanya keeps space for private sessions to allow participants to go even deeper or get the professional support they might need. That’s why Mevanya’s working groups are usually not bigger than 10-15 persons.
