- Milana May
I was born in rural Siberia and spent most of my childhood in advanced educational academies and musical institutions as well as the deep wilderness of Northern Kazakhstan. From an early age, it would seem that I was being groomed for two completely separate lifestyles. And finding a balance between these two seemingly different realities would prove to be one of the greatest challenges that I have ever had to face in my life.
I was raised by my mother, a classically trained music instructor, and my father, a practicing Shaman and a direct descendent of the rapidly fading Siberian Shaman Lineage. During the coldest months of Siberia I would find myself indoors, subjected to the rigorous demands of my studies. I was enrolled in higher educational schools and prestigious musical institutions where I learned about music theory and composition. My teachers soon noticed that I was incredibly gifted at music composition and a very fast learner at a young age. I began composing symphonies and elaborate stage performances very early into my studies.
However, in the summer months of my childhood, I was put through a unique and mystical right of passage known only to those within shamanic circles. I spent much of my time immersed within the natural wonders of Borovoe, a region within the country of Kazakhstan. During this special time, I discovered an instinctually deep connection with nature and gained greater awareness on many different aspects of reality both physical and etheric. I started tapping deeper into my intuition and began combining herbal remedies while traversing the tallest mountains completely barefoot.
