Urška Merljak, INTINITI:
B. A. in Law, integrative psychotherapy specializant, mediator and dancer.
She bases her work at INTINITI on the concept: body – emotions – mind – soul. She holds psychotherapy sessions for individuals, dance therapy, out-of-court mediation (mostly for enterprises and local community) and conducts workshops of INTINITI Mindful Dance. She conducts on-the-job health programmes tailored for companies, and organizes personal growth events in Slovenia for personal and business occasions (Društvo KRLINA). She believes in the necessity of human evolution.
Several years of attendance in all fields represented at the festival and personal acquaintance with all the artists, gave Urška an intuitive idea for this special event that will join together, for the first time, all these world-renowned concepts into a single happening.
Although she is from Brda and proud of it, and has close connection with her birthplace and the wonderful Slovenia, she loves freedom, traveling, facing and learning diversity, experiencing new things, reaching new limits, discovering all dimensions, and the very gist of people, as well as exploring love.
