Dorota Stanczyk - How to (Re)Create Yourself and Why You Must Surrender to Your Desire to Be Free
Show Notes

Today's guest is one of my dearest friends, Dorota Stanczyk. Dorota was an early guest on Slo Mo, one of the first major displays of vulnerability that helped set the tone for the show as you know it today. With her new book now published, it gives me great pleasure to have her on again, this time in an episode packed with so much wisdom if may require repeat listening.

Dorota is a Polish transformational artist, creative director, conscious creativity trainer, speaker and author of the book (Re)-Create Yourself.  She designs digital products and experiences in the wellness industry, that merge fine arts, interactive technology and personal growth. Dorota delivers talks and training on Conscious Creativity and Self-Love, and consults on creating strong brand awareness and visual identity for brands and artists around the world. She is also the co-founder, along with myself, of Appii App and the founder of Moonkava and INNERART.

Listen as we discuss:

  • The struggle of trying to keep a semblance of formality when interviewing a close friend.
  • Dorota's new book and how it came to be after a prior attempt that got trashed.
  • The moment a publisher emailed her out of the blue after she was already finished.
  • What does it mean to (re-)create yourself?
  • The masks we wear over the parts of us we've rejected.
  • Why do we get triggered?
  • How do you get to a point where you can share your feelings openly?
  • The pain of being rejected for who you are not is much worse.
  • Why being yourself is the best way to filter people in and out of your life.
  • How do we love ourselves in a relationship that's going wrong?
  • A sense of security can only come from within.
  • Giving the gift of receiving.
  • A rapid-fire Q&A on self-love, self-talk, and self-validation.
