ARTIST. SINGER. GLOBAL MUSIC AWARD WINNER. ACTIVIST. INTEGRATED GUIDE. MOM.
My name is Riya Sokol and I am the author of the poem and a video “Thank you, Coronavirus”, which within 3 days went viral around the whole world (watched 15 mln times), where I present a different perspective to the global pandemic active in the world just now. Read it and watch here: POEM “THANK YOU CORONAVIRUS”
What I do is a mixture of singing, speaking and silence. My mission is to live a conscious, authentic and integrated life. In the midst of all the revolution in the world, I choose EVOLUTION and leave the extremes behind me, to create a valuable and balanced life for myself, for others and for our planet.
My singing creation shows exactly the path that I walked.
My first album called “Neverland“ is a soundtrack from a theatre play of my own creation, produced by a Foundation that I set up, which is supporting people suffering from mental illnesses and their families. It was supported and rewarded by the Depression Association.
My second album “i’mperfect” released by Whisbear is dedicated to women and mothers and was recognised and appreciated by Princess Kate Middleton and is linked with a “mission i’mperfect”– my way of connecting and empowering women from all over the world. Showing them they are perfect with all their flaws and i’mperfections, dreams and desires, needs and “un-wants”.
My third album with healing mantras, called “thank you” is dedicated to everyone who suffers from stress and anxiety. Relaxation is so needed these days. You can play it as you work, meditate, drive, practice yoga. It works in the background on your subconscious, soothing your nervous system.
I am also an intimacy coach and a tantra teacher and along with my partner James Stevenson (www.awakenaslove.com) we offer trainings around the world (Asia, USA, Central America, Europe) sharing our experience of integrated spirituality. Showing how to awaken but in a grounded and balanced way. We do it working with subconsciousness using Integral Theory, Tantra and other tools.
Another project is an educational program for YOUTHS, called SCHOOL OF LIFE, which is a gap year of self growth in all fields, starting from NVC, strategic tools, VISION QUEST and sexuality. As a VISION QUEST guide, I am responsible for that piece as well as intimacy.
I also give lectures about sexuality and stay in contact with YOUTHS via SECRET QUESTIONS youtube channel where I answer questions about sexuality, boundaries, emotions and all “taboo” subjects they cannot ask anybody else.
I also offer online sessions. Read more HERE.
