Voloshin As Esoteric
(Department of Transpersonal Psychology and Pedagogics, International University of Fundamental Studies - IUFS)
Maximilian Voloshin (1877—1932) is famous as a poet, artist, critic, fine art expert and a traveler – he distinguished himself in many fields. And in each of them there were possibly more talented, more skillful and more learned people. But for some reasons it was Maximilian Voloshin who became a center attracting plenty of people up to now. Voloshin established in the Crimea, in Koktebel, a mysterious center, which has been attracting the Сream of Russian and European culture for more than 100 years. And not only of culture... Year by year the spiritual aura of that place preserved in his House and the entire Koktebel valley has becoming more discernable. It means that there was something in Maximilian Alexandrovich himself that became the center of attraction.
