The desire to wake up spiritually is something natural in the human being, often driven by the need to escape from a cocoon that has become too small for us. Each time we meditate, we transform our human consciousness, expanding our mind towards the frontier of the spirit.
Course is self guided. Start when you are ready!
A path and a destination
Meditation requires dealing with our present state of consciousness which has been influenced by our upbringing, often in a particular religious tradition. Whatever explanation of the Ultimate Reality and its accompanying values and allowed behavior we began with, we can transform that state of consciousness into a higher and more universal one.
Meditation can be understood as a psycho-technology of liberation and freedom. Using this technology, we can shift externally imposed interpretations of reality into a direct first person, unmediated experience of the inner reality of our own being.
In order to develop this freedom, we need to master the skills of the path that lead to it, and with these skills as our tool kit, actually get to the road and move forward.
This course offers you the tools and the way to discover for yourself, and only by yourself, where the path leads. You have to actually walk the path. These six meditation skills are within the reach of everyone. They may be engaged with at many different levels and are designed to support both those who are already on the spiritual path and those who are beginning on that path. With practice, these skills will create positive growth and habits in both the personal and the spiritual spheres.
I was born and raised in Colombia, South America where I obtained an Industrial Engineering degree and did post-graduate work in Organizational Development.
At 28, after rising to the position of HR director for Colombia, Venezuela, and Ecuador for Merck Co., I left the business world to pursue spiritual development. I lived in an ashram (spiritual community) for eight years, practicing meditation and community service and for six years served as director of the community.
In 2004, I had a revelatory experience while helping a family in Miami. Through this experience, it became clear that it was “through me” and not “because of me” that results were achieved. This personal experience of being used as a vehicle of grace and love ignited the flame of service within, and I dedicated my life to the embodiment and teaching of transformation, personal growth, and spiritual development.
