Peruquois was born in Australia, to a musical family. She received a classical jazz education, but after a rapid career rise, Peruquois decides to extend her titular of "just a singer". Upon meeting with a teacher, a Native American Indian, the world of sacred practices changed her life.

Peruquois spent ten years in the desert of New Mexico, studying voice work with him.

Thereafter she created her own unique training. Women's seminars and practices are vastly becoming more and more popular today. But there are very little vocal master classes: the master has to learn a lot and be capable of a lot, in order to teach a woman to open her voice, to teach her to cleanse herself of emotional blocks and traumas. This is done with the help of bypassing the mind, thus making it more effectively to activate a woman’s centres and disclosing the sensuality of a woman's body.

Peruquois is one of those rare masters.

“And now I am here, and I want to go beyond the limits of my mind, beyond the consciousness. It is a big thing because I’m not an empty bottle. They filled me up with many things over the years. But to accept the teaching and true wisdom, I need to empty myself first.” One of the Yogini

But most of all, she is interested in the psychological sessions with Reini, during which she explores the very essence of her path. Reini helps Xenia to see how she blocks her spontaneity. He works, provokes, and plays with Xenia. Xenia is disappointed that, after all this time, she still cannot find herself. Reini is doing his best to help her see : Xenia is already, at this moment – herself. The insight comes during a dinner with friends.

I want to help you to discover your way and that you’re already going your way. It’s not somewhere in the future or the past or somewhere else. It’s always right now. You just need to notice: “Aha! I chose this, I do this!” Reini

Reini helps Xenia understand that her ability to see beauty in others and admire other people's life paths is not her weakness but a gift. If she wants, she can share it, even in a professional field.

Xenia sees that the "cage of the rational mind" isn’t an issue.  If the "mind" is caught up and she doesn’t know what to do next, her body knows.

You may be a businessperson, you may be rich, but at the same time, you must practice, to do loving-kindness meditation, do good things and speak nicely. Then you won't be arrogant, you will understand what the meaning of your life is. U Lokanata

Episode 7. Irina Samarina

In this episode, the heroine tries to get rid of an inner stupor that doesn’t allow her to achieve success.

Chapter 7. My first steps

In recent decades, western public views on women’s role in society have changed rapidly; women are less held back by patriarchic obligations, are allowed to be who they are. It is for sure a relief; at the same time a challenge, it makes women face new questions. “What are my talents and strengths? How do I transform my limitations into something helpful, inspiring?". Myanmar helps our heroes to understand that the very opportunity to question one's life path is already a privilege. Xenia continues to use this chance to have deep conversations with monks, practice meditation and work with Reini. Reini helps her interpret an important clue from her dream.

“In an interview, I feel really connected, very intense. All my attention goes to the person, I am interviewing. I almost lose where it’s you or me... We become One. You know? It feels almost like …” Xenia
