Kim Bellisimo is a life coach, counsellor and energy worker. She teaches her clients about the human energy system and self-empowering behaviour patterns, based on spiritual, psychological, and scientific research. Emil Ivanov is a former C-Suite Executive and a life-long explorer of human potential. He combines the discipline of the businessman and the deeply human understanding of people’s life challenges. Kim and Emil are working together help people achieve inner well-being by turning inwards and applying the tools of inner navigation.
Our evening with them will take the form of an hour-long interview, followed by an hour-long Q &A session.
If you answer ‘yes’ to any one of the questions below, then this event is just for you:
• Are you feeling disorientated and out of control in many situations in your life, despite all the hard work that you have put in your own personal development?
• Are you feeling like you are missing an important ingredient in your life which would allow you to be happy, but you don’t quite know what it is?
• Are you looking for stability and inner peace but only seem to find yourself surrounded by chaos and uncertainty?
Kim and Emil will focus on real life situations only, not on theory. During the event, you will learn how to:
• Navigate your inner space – where your thoughts, emotions, and important pictures reside.
• Find your inner peace and well-being amongst chaos and uncertainty around you
• Tell the difference between inner action and outer action, and why inner action is the only reliable way to achieve lasting personal transformation.
• Identify when you’re running your life on autopilot and the enormous cost that you’re paying.
• Distinguish the key strategies of your autopilot for coping for dealing with problems and why they don’t work
• Switch off your autopilot and shift your attention inwards.
You will have an opportunity to ask them personally about any situation in work, family or your life right now, which is causing you psychological discomfort. Join us for what is sure to be an empowering, dynamic evening!

Love and The Land Preview Evening
Weaving Shamanism & NeoTantra
“10,000 blue-white suns burst within me as 10,000 polar suns burst around me . . . ecstasy in my body as I slipped underneath the river’s surface. Stubble against my thighs awakening earthy desire as I lay across the moss covered stones. Oceans of feeling rising up from my belly to explode in my heart as I’m greeted by the sunrise, fiery orange and red . . . Love and The Land.”
“We feel drawn to a shadowy glen, enticed by the graceful sweep of a tree, seduced by a scatter of stones . . . something in the land calling out to be seen and known within us . . . basic, real, substantial . . . a love that is wild, free and absolute.”
You’re invited to join Dawn Cartwright and Joe Mullally for a very special evening of Shamanic wisdom and Neo Tantra practices. An invitation to be wild, free and absolute.
Joe will share his incredible depth and knowledge in the realm of Shamanism. Born and raised in County Wicklow, Joe is a well-known traditional healer, diviner, reader and spiritual teacher. He is a former chairman of the Irish Society of Diviners and The Irish Psychic Society. Dawn and Joe will guide us through heart-centred Shamanic and NeoTantra practices perfect for singles and couples alike.
“Shamanic and tantric traditions of relationship and land are profoundly ancient ones. They speak to the soul and awaken the spirit in profound natural ways both people and place understand. They offer us deep insights into relationships and heart, into love of the land and of life.” – Joe Mullally

Peia Luzzi is an American born song collector, write and multi-instrumentalist, drawing inspiration from her ancestral roots of Celtic and Old World European music, and folklore. With the voice of a lark, she dances nimbly between Child Ballads and 17th Century Gaelic laments, to Waulking Songs from Scotland, and old Bulgarian mountain wails. Peia has traveled extensively over the past ten years to uncover melodies wrinkled and wise with time, labouring faithfully to honour their language, stories and original essence.
She is a powerful voice in the rising global community of people who are committed to restoring a balanced relationship with the Earth. Peia expresses her holistic vision and passion through her music, educational workshops and advocacy for indigenous and environmental rights groups.
Born in the back hills of Connecticut, Peia spent most of her childhood playing in the forests and hiding out in tree tops. In 2002 she moved to Boston where she attended New England Conservatory of Music on a generous scholarship and received extensive training in western classical voice and opera, vocal pedagogy, composition, and improvisation.
“My journey with world folksong traditions began many years ago while studying at New England Conservatory in Boston. Much to the dismay of my Opera professors, I found myself enthralled with the alluring beauty and mystery of traditional folk music. This fascination, along with a bit of old Irish wanderlust, poised me for a journey that led me to seek a lost culture and reconnect with the songs of my ancestors in ancient Europe.”
In 2012 Peia released her first solo album The Dance of Devotion, a profound collection of poetic love songs. Her second release Four Great Winds – a timeless journey through traditional and original sacred song – was self released in May 2013 and picked up by Sounds True for global release in 2015. Following the initial release of Four Great Winds, Peia gained international notoriety and requests for performances in Europe, Australia, Bali, Brazil and Canada. Her music has taken her around the world and sparked collaborations with many world class artists including: legendary poet and Rumi scholar Coleman Barks, author, mythologist and storyteller Michael Meade, Grammy Award winning pianist Peter Kater, Iranian tar master Ali Ghamsari and guitar virtuoso Estas Tonne.
Peia currently splits her time between touring and the lush, wild hills of Southern Oregon, where she wildcrafts herbal remedies, sings with Wild Honey – an all women’s world music trio – and teaches Song of the Ancients, voice cultivation and ancestral songline tracing. Fusing her knowledge of Vocal Pedagogy (The Science of the Voice) with the ancient meditative practice of Nada Yoga, she imparts upon her students the tools to harness the natural beauty and resonance of the voice.
We are thrilled to welcome her to Positive Nights on Thursday April 25th, from 7.30 to 9.30 p.m. in Bewley’s Café, 78/79 Grafton Street, Dublin 2. To book your tickets, click here.
