Now, here’s my story behind the bio…

Early Life

Since I was a child, I have had a strong spiritual connection. Therefore, my spiritual quest for answers about the nature of reality and my own purpose in life started when I was a teenager. As an avid reader, I devoured every book I found on the meaning of life and transcendence.

For a while, I followed the usual track society programs you to walk on, trying to have an everyday life. I got a bachelor's degree in Economics and a master's in International Trade; I got married early on; I moved to Paris to work in a prestigious international business school, and I had a comfortable, normal life. 

Yet I felt utterly unfulfilled. I was not contributing to creating a better world, which was my true calling.

After my first stay in India, I divorced, quit my job, and moved back to my parents’ home to start a new life and career.

I still needed to determine what path to take. I discovered that by taking one step at a time, my mission would eventually unfold, carrying me where I was supposed to go and providing significant lessons along the way. 

It took great trust in my own strength and in the Universe's guidance to let go of all forms of security I had formerly had.

The Path

I began volunteering with children with cancer in a hospital and at a hospice. I got the best training I could have, mostly in the USA to become a life coach, a mindfulness teacher, and a therapist. I also lived in Tanzania for a few months, helping in an orphanage and teaching in a school. 

I spent 3 months per year traveling to 110 different countries. 

For ten years, I regularly studied with Tibetan lamas in Nepal and India and received teachings from the Dalai Lama. I also studied with renowned Western spiritual teachers.

I wrote and published eight books on personal and spiritual development topics in Spain and Latin America.

I created a method of mindfulness, emotional intelligence, and self-discovery and taught it to 2,500-plus executives in companies such as Accenture, Samsung, and Electronic Arts, and at MBAs.

I went through periods of popularity, habitually collaborating with national TV, magazines, and newspapers, and periods of reclusiveness, focusing on my inner work and connection with the divine.

The Awakening

Like most people who are seriously committed to a spiritual path, I had quite a few peak experiences and spontaneous memories of previous lifetimes. After almost a lifetime on a spiritual quest, there was a moment of extreme clarity during a silent retreat where I knew the search was over.

I had found what I had been looking for for so long. It was not outside, and nobody could give it to me. It was in me. I had heard that many times before, and intellectually I knew it. But finally, it became a raw experience for me. I could finally connect with it continuously.

I could allow myself to rest. It was time to relax, at long last. After that, inspiration came to start guiding retreats and teaching people how to prepare spiritually for the transition called death.

It was such a profound experience of Oneness and unconditional Love that made me feel a vast sense of calmness that has not left me ever since.

It is difficult to put into words such an ineffable experience. At that point, I realized I had to share that with the world to help others get liberated from the tethers of the Matrix.

Since 2008

Through my private practice of transformational coaching and public speaking I have helped hundreds of people from all walks of life, guiding them to overcome their distress and dissatisfaction. 

I assist them in getting to root causes instead of treating symptoms, shifting their perspective on life, finding inner peace, and teaching them how to be fulfilled regardless of external circumstances.

I also lead workshops and spiritual retreats, and I inspire through the 9 books I have published.

I am also a spiritual painter, bringing light to a world in dire need of beauty, depth, and illumination. My artworks have been shown in galleries worldwide, and some are in the permanent collections of museums and institutions.

The 7 Levels of Wisdom

During a trip to Mongolia, I had a calling to write a book in English to inspire more people. It gives a framework on the different stages of the evolution of consciousness and how to reach the highest level of self-realization through self-awareness, spiritual work, and personal growth. Writing this book was a lot of effort, and publishing it in the US was a monumental challenge. 

Seeing that no publisher was interested it, I learned to surrender and accept that the Universe would know the right timing. It was a major test of faith and perseverance for me.

Five years later, I suddenly heard the same inner voice indicating that it was time to reactivate it, and I was directed toward one particular publisher. After editing the whole manuscript again, and I sent it. Two weeks later, they wrote back, offering me to sign a contract. I could not believe that it was finally happening after so much hardship.

It was a great lesson about how difficulties and setbacks can always be turned into growth through acceptance.

The 7 Levels of Consciousness has just been released! Hopefully, it will inspire many to focus on their own conscious evolution. May they be guided to continue the path toward the essence of their Being.


My mission is to assist people in getting rid of the burdens that weigh them down and continuing their spiritual evolution to reach the highest level of consciousness, so they can enjoy the joy, wisdom, and fulfillment that is their true nature.

My extensive and varied experience allows me to combine the best of Eastern and Western thought currents, naturally blending these powerful traditions.

And in so doing, be able to serve as a guide and a catalyst for people to heal, expand, and thrive as spiritual beings having a human experience.
