Dr. Vic – Victor Porak de Varna, PhD (Founder & CEO)

Founder and CEO of The Energy Paradigm, Dr. Vic is a Pioneer and Thought Leader in the fields of Human Potential, Business Energetics, Cultural Sustainability, and Organizational Energy.

An expert profiler with over 25 years of experience, Dr. Vic is a trusted advisor to Leaders, Boards, and Executives who are ready to look beyond “business as usual” and “people as a resource” to the intangible success factors and energetic undercurrents that drive their businesses from the core.

“The reality of any business is a direct outcome of Subtle Energetic Undercurrents within organizations, teams and individuals that ultimately materialize into the tangible world. The only way to change a business, is to address the energetic undercurrents that have helped create the current reality.” – Dr. Vic

Dr. Vic has helped Global Fortune companies and US-based startups alike transform their approach to talent, leadership, team energy, and organizational culture to activate, motivate and engage their full human potential – to shift friction to flow.

With a Ph.D. in Communications and a Master’s Degree in Information Management from UNISG – University of St. Gallen, Switzerland –  and endorsed by His Holiness The Dalai Lama, Dr. Vic combines Western and Eastern philosophies into a transformational approach to culture, leadership, and engagement that activates the good in people – beyond silly perks.

“Actions always speak louder than words. Yet, it is the energy at the origin of every action that uncovers its true motives and intents. That energy cannot be faked, nor can it be accessed by the intellect alone: It needs to be sensed, felt and known.” – Dr. Vic

Former Researcher and Lecturer, with 21 publications, he collaborated with the Institute for Leadership and Human Resource Management at UNISG Switzerland (the birthplace of Organizational Energy) and had the honor of working alongside Nobel Laureate Dr. Vernon L. Smith at George Mason University in Arlington, VA.

His extensive training in the field as well as his experience working with diverse clients around the globe, has helped Dr. Vic ascertain that there is more to business, life, and people than readily meets the eye. A new lens, a different perspective, and a new paradigm are needed to access the intangible/energetic side of people, teams, and organizations to elevate their untapped potential into reality.

Complementary to her Ph.D. studies in East-West Psychology, Danielle has trained extensively with the Arthur Findlay College in the UK as well as with the Inner Connection Institute in the US and is a Reverend with the Church of Inner Light.

Danielle is the walking encyclopedia of healing modalities and will intuitively find the right approaches that apply to the specific circumstances of our clients.

“Your experience is reflected in your body/mind/spirit field. All three need to be addressed to induce deep healing” – Danielle Porak de Varna

With a B.A. from Smith College and an M.Ed. from the University of Virginia, Danielle is currently pursuing her Ph.D. in East-West Psychology from CIIS in California.

Bringing in the novel notion of Integral Leadership into the corporate world, Danielle advocates for a strong and grounded nervous system and a healthy approach to body/mind/spirit as a counterbalance to our brain-dominated world. Our future is not only in the head but requires a balance in body, mind, and spirit. The future of leadership is calm, centered, and grounded – acknowledging the whole person. Its approach needs to be heart over head so that Leadership becomes Eldership from a place of inner work, personal transformation and deep wisdom.
