Hello wonderful being!
Thanks for stopping by and visiting. My name is Igor (pronounced eye-gor), I am mostly human, from Earth, as far as I can tell. I am a traveler, storyteller, writer, artist, dreamer, maker, reiki master, and a bit of a wizard-in-learning to boot.
Currently I am traversing the great expanses of west coast of north america: meeting new people, learning new things, sharing ideas and creations, making pretty and at times useful things, writing and generally having a good bit of fun in my own magical way. This adventure has received a name as well - Igor Goes Coastal.
On this website you can download my book, view some geometric art and graphic design eye candy from my past projects, get some of my insights into conscious self change and finally keep in contact with me through email, blog, facebook or phone.
Igor Goes Coastal is my improvised tour of the west coast and as of late pacific north-west of north america. It started as an idea of traveling to the coast to share my book, imperfect geometry and some of the tools of concscious self change that I find useful. As of now the idea is constantly evolving.
On April 9th of 2013 I have departed Phoenix, a city that has been my home for over seventeen years, towards the west coast. Since then I've visited Los Angeles, San Francisco and Portland, and a few places in between. I had a plan, but as all plans do, it has changed. I am keeping records of my travels and as time and resources permit I share these through my blog—threading tales.
If you have a book venue—I would love to read my book to your patrons. If you have a healing space—I am available to share my practice of reiki and reiki attunements, alongside with many other tools of conscious self change. If you want to collaborate on design high vibrational projects and I have resources needed—let me know and perhaps I can visit you and assist you with your project.
In February of twenty twelve I produced a book. I titled it the book of possibilities. Inside you will find my compressed experiences, questions and explorations of possibilities that exist in the white space of life.
The book has been downloaded 1600 times by people all over the world. It is my hope that the questions in the book will lead to more questions in your life and that you would be inspired to explore the possibilities of your own creativity in the white space of this book and life.
Download and read the book, like its page on facebook, share your thoughts about it with me via email. Your donations allow me to continue my journey with this book toward eventual release of printed copies of it.
imperfect geometry is an ongoing visual, artistic, geometric and energetic experiment. at the very least these images are pleasing to look at on a computer screen or on a wall engaging both visual creative and analytical sides of the viewer. at best this series of images allows the viewer to focus on particular energy signature and enjoy non-cognitive shifts in energetic potential.
at the moment the best way to view the images is on facebook page of imperfect geometry.
I have always been interested in extended capabilities of human mind and body. That interest led me to explore various paths and tools of conscious self change. I am a practitioner of EFT (Emotional Freedom Techniques)—a set of tools that allows one to change one's emotions and body sensations, as well as a Reiki Master. I am also a proponent of simplicity and usability, so I change the tools I receive, make them simpler and closer to the principles on which they are made. I also like sharing and practicing these tools with people I meet—in that I get see more points of view and do what I enjoy.
In summer of 2012 I have developed a one day playshop for conscious self change tools, and on my west coast tour I have shared reiki master attunements with many people. Please feel free to download the little booklet that went along with my playshop; it contains some background information on Reiki, EFT and some of my adaptations of the conscious self change tools.
One of the skillsets that I have acquired on my life journey is that of art direction and graphic design. While I no longer have a practice or a business associated with that skill, I find that I like creating personal sigils and logos; crafting unique cards that represent who you are and allow those you interact with to remember you better; designing, typesetting and producing books for poets and writers; collaborating with talented creatives on shaping objects that represent great high vibration ideas or are of great to use to humanity.
Enjoy some samples of what I have created in the past on my journal.
If you are intrested in having me art direct your project and use my design skills please send me an email with details of your project. At the moment I am on the road and my availability changes with each day.
Telling one's own story can be a bit of a challenge, especially when this story changes so rapidly. To begin at the beginning, I was born in Moscow, Russia in 1978, was raised between Moscow and a tiny city on a tiny river in Ukraine, and on the wings of the wind of change arrived to North America in 1994. I have visited many places, had at least four careers, loved and cried, made things and unmade them, told many stories and found an lost many ideas. For some seventeen years I have resided in Phoenix, Arizona, and this city will always have a most special place in my heart. Now I am on the road, making new stories, learning and sharing.
I enjoy a good cup of coffee in homey coffee shop. I love good food and can cook up a decent meal. I love meeting new people and visit old friends. I read and write voraciously. I follow roads less traveled. I wander. I explore and I experiment. I am many things and constantly changing.
The best way to find me on the road is by sending me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also call and leave me a voice mail on my Google Voice number - 602.492.8936. Each one of my projects has a facebook page, so you may contact me through those as well.
A lot of my travels are captured on instagram, which is more frequently updated than my blog at this point of time: instagram.com/igorbrezhnev
I live a life where I have just as much as needed for the present time and where I give as much as I can give as a gift. This allows me to enjoy what I do and be useful and practice my skills without assigning relative and arbitrary worth and value to what I do. Alas we still live the world of monetary exchange and one way or another I get to play with that system. So from time to time I still need a little help from my friends. This is where this page comes in. Here are some things that would be awesome to have on my travels that would help me create and make things:
Macbook Pro Laptop (intel, 4gb ram at least) - I am currently without a computer and am working on raising money in many ways to have one. Perhaps you have one of the older macbooks and do not need it, if you do I would appreciate the donation. It will allow me to practice graphic design on the road and help people with that skill set. also i'll be able to create more imperfect geometry and communicate more timely with people around the world.
Portable mac compatible projector - i have a number of ideas in presenting imperfect geometry and art of other artists with a digital projector, essentially turning any wall into an art gallery space, so I really would love something lightweight that i can fit in my bag and carry with me to make those shows happen.
Conversion Van or Truck with Camper - i do not have a home and intend to travel for the next year going between cities and towns, exploring, learning and sharing, it would be quite great to have a little home on wheels that would take me to all the places the road takes me. perhaps you have one and would like to donate it to me?
I always appreciate a gift of money. Whether you figure it is an exchange of gifts, where I've employed my skills at some point on your behalf as a gift, or just plain old for no reason whatsoever gift. These gifts help me have a bit of food, stay in communication and enjoy a hot cup of coffee or an occasional room with a bed. Easiest way to do that is by PayPal - gift money to Igor.
