Our Story

This is a story of Lucia Mikulova, the founder of Essence Workshops. My story started when my best friend, my soulmate, my rock, my mum passed away and my son was born shortly after that. I have been through some very rough times emotionally and physically.  I wasn`t able to reach out for help, I lost connection with myself and the world around me. I just wanted to disappear.

With the time passing by things slightly improved but I still felt so lonely, so lost. I needed to find myself again. I think the only thing I had left somewhere deep down was my believe in universal energy and power of nature. I listened to my inner voice and started to read books, exercise, eat healthy and reach out for some spiritual help. I started my body, mind and soul healing journey.

However, I found it difficult to find avenues for holistic approach to my healing. I wanted to go to talk to people, to visit workshops, seminars and classes. I spent hours searching for what is available in Melbourne. And that`s when I thought wouldn`t that be great if there was one place where I can go and find what I`m looking for. The idea of Essence Workshops was born.

With Essence Workshops I started a new journey. Journey full of excitement, satisfaction and joy. It opened up new chapters in my life. I dived into exploring new wellbeing practices and meeting inspirational people radiating addictive positive energy. It created link between my past, present and future. Facilitating Essence Workshops combines my skill – event organiser, knowledge – my health, safety and wellbeing background and passion – genuine need to help people to fulfil their dreams and live their life to the fullest.

There is a long running folk belief that blowing out the white puffball of seeds that the flowers of dandelion turns into will grant you one wish. Wherever you are on your journey of life I wish for everyone to rise above life’s challenges and to find long lasting happiness and youthful joy, just like dandelion symbolises.
