About me

“Awakening is possible only for those who seek it and want it, for those who are ready to struggle with themselves and work on themselves for a very long time and very persistently in order to attain it.”
G.I. Gurdjieff

Born in Chile but raised in Venezuela. From an early age, I was very close to the themes related to the spiritual world thanks to my mother who always instilled in me the need to grow inwardly. I read the first book about astrology when I was 9 years old. At 14, I was practicing Yoga, and was already meditating at 15 . I belong to the sign of the Crab , with a Leo ascendant and a Moon swimming in the deep waters of Pisces .

My initial inclination was to study Humanistic Psychology, however, there was no such career in the city where I grew up, and that is when Audiovisual Arts (photography, film, television) took its place. From that moment, my life began to divide. For over 30 years, I have swung (like the Pendulum ) between my profession in the entertainment industry, and my dedication to the spiritual work. In this duality that I have had to live, I have been able to integrate these two passions, realizing that both are part of my Purpose of Life.

Creativity, that gets its expression through writing, drawing, photography and editing. Spirituality, that manages to connect with  the wisdom of Tarot, Astrology and Healing Therapies. Both have been the foundation that has allowed me to move and understand the nature of this world. At the end of the day, there can be no pure Creativity without the Spiritual ingredient, and it is impossible to conceive Spirituality without the freedom of Creativity.

In this Portal you will get both manifestations.

I have practiced Spiritual Response Therapy since 2004, and got certified as a Consultant in 2010. I have been a restless student of Astrology and Tarot for over 20 years, based on the knowledge of Carl Jung and other great astrologers like Liz Green, Howard Saportas, Jan Spiller, and more recently, Elizabeth Spring . I have studied with José Hernández, Enrico Mariani and Mauricio Puertas. I was also initiated in the art of REIKI healing technique in 2003. I trained and became a practitioner on Spiritual Restructuring (SpR) in 2010, and got certified as a Life Coach in 2011. I belong to the School of Spiritual Studies the Fourth Way,  «The Teachings of Gurdjieff « since 2011. From 2013 to 2015, I joined the Spiritual Response Association Phone Consulting Line for the Spanish/English speakers around the world, and became a Certified SRT Teacher in 2013.

It has been over a decade since I have lived in the United States of America, and it is throughout these years that life has taken me through intense experiences to share this knowledge to anyone who would like to listen.

This site is dedicated to my mother who has always encouraged me to find my passion; to my father (renowned palmist of that time) who I never met, but has been present in my life through his everlasting energy; and to my friends and wonderful people that I have met in the path of my personal journey.
