About Me


Namaste! My name is Agnija Kazuša. I am a certified meditation and mindfulness trainer, a writer and a peace activist. I was born in Ogre, Latvia on 2nd of November, 1985 and grew up in Lielvārde. Yet I keep travelling all around the world – from Helsinki to Cairo, from Bogota to Tokyo – to continuously search, learn and discover myself within different cultures, customs and religions.

I started my career as a freelance journalist, working for one of the most popular newspapers in Latvia, Diena and other print and online media. Back then, I also had my radio show on an internet radio station, as well as I was an editor-in-chief at the local newspaper Lielvārdes Ziņas in Latvia.

Having gained a Master’s degree in Communication Science, I spent three years teaching English in Egypt, Latvia, Morocco, India and China. I became actively involved in global cooperation and international youth organizations, like AEGEE, AIESEC, European Youth Press, Anna Lindh Foundation, Middle East and North Africa Committee (menac) and FEJS Latvija, which I initiated and co-founded in 2008. The aim of FEJS Latvija is to allow local journalism students and media makers improve their professional skills and connect with each other. Though I am not anymore involved in most of these organizations, I still keep my personal networks with them active.

After my life and work experience in Egypt, I started a creative writing career, and wrote my first novel Three Cups of Egypt. It was published in a web portal for women Sievietes Pasaule. From 2013 until 2015 I took Creative Writing classes at the Literary Academy in Riga. During this period, I wrote my second novel Bruno (published by Lauku Avīze publishing house in May 2016) and several short stories; some of them have been published by internet journal Satori and awarded and published by the European Institute of the Mediterranean A Sea of Words short story contest.


In the beginning of 2015, I became actively involved in the World Peace Initiative Foundation (WPI) and its project Peace Revolution that changed my life and opened my eyes to a happier and healthier life thanks to a daily practice of meditation. Since then I have taught meditation to more than 1000 people in Serbia, Latvia, Cyprus, Hungary, Portugal and Spain where I spent a year as a European Voluntary Service volunteer at a youth organization OMIX Ribadavia. In March 2017, I got my Dream Job and started working for the World Peace Initiative Foundation (WPI) as Communication Manager for Europe.

No matter where I go and what I do, I focus on a single day; and as a single day passes by I want to carry my mission of being a Peace Architect; of  continuing to explore the potential of the mind and inspire others on their journey to inner peace and happiness, through sharing my loving kindness and my stories.
