Featured Interview With Nataša Nuit Pantović
Tell us a little about yourself. Where were you raised? Where do you live now?
Raised in Belgrade, Serbia, with a soul of a nomad, visited more than 50 countries, set foot on all the continents, and lived in five (UK, Holland, New Zealand, Serbia) and my home is at the moment in Malta, in the midst of Mediterranean. This magic place at the edge of Europe is full of ancient Temples built 7,000 years ago. and surrounded by the forever expanding Blue. In here there is the most unusual mix of nationalities from all around the world.
We offered our home to a black and white cat called Tobby. She is the queen of our neighborhood and she considers our little family “hers”
At what age did you realize your fascination with books? When did you start writing?
Poetry has always been my way to express different states of mind. Hence my two poetry books (Art of 4 Elements and Tree of Life). Getting lost within a book and writing were my first fascinations. Read at least a 1,000 of books and wrote a 1,000 of pages…
Who are your favorite authors to read? What is your favorite genre to read. Who Inspires you in your writings?
Both Hesse and Tolstoy were my first Spiritual Gurus. Through their deep insights and soul-full messages I for the first time experienced the world of spiritual growth and meditation. I was 16 when I discovered them and since they followed me through my learnings. Many artists inspire my writings, especially the ones that lived some centuries ago like; Leonardo da Vinci, Lao Tzu, Giordanno Bruno…
I am deeply attracted to the insights a mix of different cultures offer. My kids are from Ethiopia, they speak Serbian (my mother tongue) fluently and consider themselves to be Serbian-Maltese Ethiopians. Ama, the protagonist of my historical fiction novel, comes from Kenia and lives in Macao (China) during the 17th century. Her father is a Portuguese Alchemist, her mum a Kenyan Queen and her friends are from all around the planet, finding themselves in the midst of this complex blend of Chinese, Portuguese and Africans that live together on this little peninsula during the 17th century. Ama as an African Goddess living in China, came to my worlds before I had an idea to adopt children from Addis Abeba.
Tell us a little about your latest book?
The one released this year is Conscious Creativity: Mindfulness Meditations (Alchemy of Love Mindfulness Training Book #7). Within the book I explore various creativity tools to better deal with life’s issues, competition oriented culture, stressful work environment and parenting problems. All of the Alchemy of Love Mindfulness Training books are based on the practical, day-to-day spiritual and well-being exercises. The personal and self-development tools within this book include activities that improve creativity, mindfulness, awareness and ultimately, we hope, enhance one’s quality of life.
My fiction book “A-Ma Alchemy of Love” lived with me for about 10 years and non-fiction books were inspired by my endless search and fascination with meditation, prayer, music, dance, singing, within questions: Where do we come from? What is our purpose on Earth? What is consciousness? How to live our highest potential? How to stay healthy and happy? All the non-fiction books: Mindful Eating, Mindful Being and Conscious Parenting were born during this search. Alchemy, Love and Mindfulness found their merge within this mission: Alchemy of Love Mindfulness Training.
Since March 2014, Artof4Elements developed and with 7 Authors published the Alchemy of Love Mindfulness Training Series of 9 fiction and non-fiction books focusing on spiritual growth, creativity and mindfulness.
