A Long Journey. Returning to the Source. A spiritual autobiography.

My talk is about my inner quest that led me from a materialistic stance to spirituality. I review the transitional moments in my life: an encounter with a Tibetan lama with distant visions and memories, psychoanalytic research, numerous seminars at the Monroe Institute, meditation experiences in the Buddhist field, holotropic breathing experiences, shamanic experiences, encounters with great people. The long journey has taught me through experience that there is a source of love, harmony, wisdom within us, a refuge where we would always want to be and act from. We are spirit in a body, death does not exist, consciousness is eternal. We must try to live consciously in the here and now. It is already all in us, it is our natural consciousness.
My inner quest is the theme of my book “A Long Journey. Returning to the Source. A spiritual autobiography.”
