come together

Hi. My friends call me Vienda. Let me introduce myself informally. 

I have lived countless lifetimes in this one.

I left home at 17 and started travelling the world. I’ve lived as a barefoot and broke hippy, a vagabond and a festival coordinator all at the same time. I’ve studied psychology, neurolinguistics and much more. I created an ethical fashion brand before it was cool. I started writing this blog that turned into a personal growth brand.

Over the years that’s evolved into The Mentor Training, and a small stationary brand for women called Plannher.

I’ve fallen in love and fallen out of love and broken hearts and had mine broken. I’ve reclaimed and healed and grown and then shattered and started again over and over.

I’ve lived a zig-zagging bohemian life, one where I prioritised freedom over safety and compromised the conventional for authenticity.

I love style and luxury but am a natural minimalist. I don’t like lots of ‘stuff’ weighing me down. I practice non-attachment yet love fiercely and deeply. I’m territorial and overly protective over those I care about, including myself.

My sun is in Leo, my moon is in Scorpio and my ascendant is in Taurus. I have a lot of Venus in my chart so I love love, beauty, romance, aesthetics and creativity. I’m 166 cm tall, very Vata, and always trying to find harmony between the parts of me that want to untether and free fall and the parts of me that want comfort and security.

I don’t have toenails on my baby toes. I’m so culturally confused that I hate when people ask me where I’m from because I don’t know the answer. I was born in Austria but look like my Italian father and am a blend of both plus every country I’ve lived in since.

I feel homesick for every place I’ve ever been to and at the same time am always happy to go somewhere new.

I love bridging the cosmic mystery of life with simple day-to-day pragmatism.

Thank you for being here.
