Episode 5 - Awareness with Tigrilla Gardenia
Tigrilla Gardenia takes into the world of “Awareness” in episode 5 of Unscripted.
Inspired by nature and plants, we explore the interconnected nature of all life and what this can teach us about a different way of being. This is a conversation that leads us to rediscovering our true nature and place in the world.
Fascinated by nature since her earliest memories, Tigrilla Gardenia turned that passion into her vocation, leading to a successful nature-inspired business.
Her journey began in a polyethnic childhood. She earned a degree in music and electrical engineering, entering the high-tech corporate world via RealNetworks and Microsoft in the early days of the internet.
The desire to escape the confines of the corporate world proved too strong and Tigrilla soon began following her own spiritual path. She co-owned a circus, produced intentional dance events, taught Kabbalah, and even toured with Cirque du Soleil.
Today, she works as a Nature-Inspired Business Mentor and studies Plant Intelligence and the Effects of Plant Music on Human Health.
Tigrilla has the honor of being a Damanhur citizen in Italy — one of the largest spiritual eco-communities in the world.
Her roots are firmly planted in the arts, communication, and the avant-garde. Tigrilla uses her expertise to empower people to live and work in natural harmony with the planet, achieving meaning and abundance. She is an influential speaker and mentor, running courses and workshops on connecting with nature, including plant communication, wisdom and music.
Always eager to learn, she studied with some of the greatest minds in bio-inspired sciences, gaining a masters degree in Futuro Vegetale (Vegetal Future): plants, social innovation, design under Stefano Mancuso, University of Florence. She has also studied Biomimicry for Social Innovation and Product Development under Dayna Baumeister, co-founder of Biomimicry 3.8.
Tigrilla champions connection to nature as the basis for long-term health and happiness.
