BECOMING NAKED

(Archive June, 2019)

After the car accident I found myself stuck in a beach town called Vera Playa in Spain. First days there were a bit of a nightmare as I needed to deal with all the car and health insurances, police, etc. It was only on the day 3 when I decided to clear my head and go for a walk to check out the local surroundings.

Needless to say, I was in a shock, when I saw every other person naked, walking on the streets all relaxed, behaving ordinary as if it was a completely normal thing.

Terrified and embarrassed I ran back to the apartment and rang the landlord seeking for some explanation. He listened to all what I told then started laughing - Didn’t you know? This is a Nudist town…

After the call I started to do my own research, looking for all the information that I could find regarding this town as well as about Nudism - Naturism. To my surprise, turned out that it’s not some kind of a fetish thing of people wanting to run around naked, instead it’s being a lifestyle choice, where one can freely connect to the nature and others without needing to be judgemental, awkward, embarrassed and all the other negative feelings and thoughts which can enter mind when we talk about social nudity.

Having gained such positive insights , I felt that there’s no other way but to embrace whatever had happened and give life my best shot. So i did, firstly trying out Naturism on the beach a couple of hours a day. It was a great fun, as I was with my naturist friend, and he kept laughing at me every time I tried to cover my body with hands and hide behind sun chairs. This experience was all I needed to open up the gates which had kept me imprisoned for years, allowing me to see life from a completely different perspective. I felt a strange lightness, like I was suddenly freed from the judgemental thinking about people, communities, situations.. All the ‘normalities’ had collapsed and disappeared in a thin air, presenting me with a new, clear path to walk on.





Then, once I bought a new car, I decided to move to the Nudist camping to practice living naked for 24h a day. The more I did it, the more confident I became. During time in this camping as well as visiting a few Naturist resorts, I met a lot of amazing people, arriving to the conclusion that I want to be a part of the Naturist and all the other ‘Weirdo Communities’. Even better, I felt like I had found my true calling - to inspire people so that they can become better versions of who they already are, embrace their individuality, help them understand that it is our little weirdnesses that makes us who we are and that, by accepting it , it is possible to attract the right people and circumstances, and change our lives for the better.

And so the next chapter had begun..

Love and Peace,
