“Victor is a long-time student of mine (since 2009) and an active member of the international community of Unified Mindfulness practitioners. He’s been translating my books and articles into Russian for many years, teaching classes, courses and leading retreats on various aspects of Unified Mindfulness, and is well-known among the russian-speaking practitioners for his clarity, precision and systematic approach — which was why he was drawn to my teaching style almost a decade ago.

In his professional work he integrates his knowledge of modern mindfulness (both as a scholar and a deep-end practitioner) with developmental psychology, and promotes pragmatic contemplative science-based practices worldwide to relieve human suffering, provide pain relief and help people live a more rich, full and meaningful life. Victor is really doing what needs to be done on this planet.”
“I trust Victor's character, practice, and intellect, so it's easy for me to stand by an endorsement of his work. We met 9 years ago both being monks in Myanmar, and I know Victor has never stopped practicing, learning and teaching since then. Any person is lucky to learn from him.”
“I think I met my Russian-dopplegänger-dharma-brother in Victor and in doing so have been amazed to discover how much work Victor has already done to help bring deep relational meditation practice to the Russian-speaking world. Keep up the good work Victor!”
“Victor has a real talent for explaining very complicated things. I love how his teaching approach combines a clear and concise structure with flexible adaptation to the needs of each participant. He creates a field in which it is easy to try new things, go deeper and fall in love with silence and peace.

Victor undoubtedly has tremendous experience and deep knowledge in the topics of awareness, spiritual enlightenment and mindfulness, however, he manifests himself not as a “wise-man”, but rather a humble guide who walks alongside and illuminates the path for himself and others.”
“Victor has helped me understand my mind more than anyone else before. It might sound exaggerated, but he really has changed my life. I can say this only of very few people, and he's one of them.”
