World of Staroń

Harry Potter is not only a tale for kids, but it’s also a study of modern society fixed into a tale. It doesn’t teach that magic exists, but that there are people who choose cruelty, which can be defeated. The greatest magic – the one which defeated Voldemort – was a magic of love.

Philosophy 

Philosophy has always been to me mother of every kind of scientific thinking. The essence of philosophy is being surprised and amazed by the World. All of the World. It asks questions which every of us asks at least once in our lifetime, for instance in tough moments: why am I living? Why did it happen to me? What’s the meaning of everything? It’s the mother of all sciences.

Happiness can be found, even in the darkest of times, if one only remembers to turn on the light.

The star is shining over the hour of our meeting.

— J.R.R. Tolkien, „Lord of the Rings — The Fellowship of the Ring

My job comes to trying to accompany young people in their self development, doubts, questions, joys and fascinations. Everything else I do, so to say, by the way. Everything else is built on community, which we are creating with younger and elder people, or maybe, with people born earlier and later. And this is the most important thing for me – building relations and giving people a feeling of being important, of being capable of doing anything they want, of having real great power inside of them.
