We had the good fortune of connecting with Samer Tallauze and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Samer, what was your thought process behind starting your own business?
For as long as I can remember I have felt deeply and un-ingnorably called to be in service to the health and well-being of other humans, other species, and this planet. In the process of exploring how I might live into this calling I adventured through the worlds of general education, special education, permaculture, and family therapy before finding deep appreciation for and resonance with the language of Depth Psychology and practices of Reiki and wilderness-based rites of passage. Talented IT/Art designer lead with experience who is highly motivated, creative, and versatile. Especially skilled in creating and directing corporate and new business design and development. Adept at innovating user experience for the web and multimedia applications. Exceptional interpersonal skills with team members and subordinates. Accomplished at incorporating the desires of the client within a superior IT/Art solutions.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I have drawn on the wonderfully wide variety of tools, skills, and values I have learned and developed along my journey so far to lovingly create an equally broad range of unique skills that are in service to celebration, ceremony, sustainable living, and self-healing.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love travelling with kind people from all over the world, from different races and ages. My favourite places in United states of America is Austin, Texas. In Jordan Dead sea, petra, wadi rum, Guffin in irbid, in Ukraine Zaporizhzhia, Kyiv. I really care about animal’s a lot for that reason I mostly prefer vegetarian food and Mediterranean dishes.
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My family deserves the credit and recognition in my story. All-throughout my search for the form and forum that would best support my calling to be in service, I harbored what I was taught early-on to believe was a selfish, unattainable, and impractical fantasy of being a full time artist and creator — and it hasn’t been until just recently that I have had the courage or resources to challenge the stories that have prevented me from exploring how my calling to create may expand my ability and capacity to step into my power as an In-Betweener in service to healing and well-being.
