1. Who and what is foremost in your heart?(Who and what in your personal life is most important to you?)
What seats in my heart is the search for the truth. The truth is the only real entity that we can rely on. As a real spiritual seeker, it’s what’s drives me and defines me.
2. How would you describe your work? How does the work you do impact consumers/environment/world?
The deconstruction of who I think I am has been my work lately, as it’s impacting people in a powerful way. We all come from the same source, and we are only one, that’s why a single individual can transform so many lives. My work is to inspire people not to limit themselves by identifying with the little mind (ego), but with the heart. This can be a great vessel to shift consciousness collectively in a micro or macro level.
3. What are you most proud of?
I am most proud to understand that the transformation of society requires personal, emotional, and spiritual change first. All healers should have this as a mantra. We do not change people, we allow them to BECOME what they sign up to be before they came to this planet. This should not be an intellectual idea, but a realization, a way of living.
4. Which is one cause / organization you want us to know about? What would you like to see happen?
I would like to see organizations such SOS Amazonas in Brasil, African Wildfire Foundation, and WWF all over the world, been more well known for the causes they fight: preservation of nature and protection of the animals. All the resources we need comes from Mother Nature and she has the power to please, comfort, feed us, and bring us peace. It’s the source of all sources.
5. What are you most passionate about sharing with others at this time?
Whatever you are afraid of, there is your heart, there is your passion. Trust your process. You do not need to know where you are going, you just need courage. As Osho says: “Courage is a love affair with the unknown.”

It’s 3:30pm, what are you drinking? Detox green juice with lemon, ginger and spices. You know it’s all fun and delicious until your clothes do not fit anymore, I have adapt that from somewhere..
Favorite place you’ve visited? Prague, Czech Republic. As Sezin Koehler would describe: “Prague isn’t just a city, but an entity of some kind.”

Currently listening to – Tom Jobim, bossa nova, insensatez which means “folly.” Nice distraction.
Favorite Sustainable Fashion Brand – I support any brand or anyone who incorporates ethics and aesthetics.
Who was / is your favorite pet? A dog called Yuli. He would assume everyone would love him and would never allow fear to interfere with that. Great lessons about polarities.
Next destination on your list? Scotland, to study shamanism.
What is one of your superpowers? Being present when people speak, the healing starts when they feel heard.
What was your first job? Or what was your most random job? My first job was in a little store in São Paulo. Nothing to do with me, but it was a great foundation to understand my capacities and weakness.
Who introduced you to your industry? Life was my best teacher. Since I was a kid I used to perceive life differently. But to become a healer I went through some painful rite of passage. I was sexually abused by a so-called “spiritual teacher”. Life or destiny can take us to places that we cannot imagine. Ironically, was this event that really allowed me to find my real power then eventually I became a healer.
Best advice you’ve been given? You do not get in life what you deserve, but what you need in order to evolve.
Best advice you give? Just accept who you are and you will never feel the need to change anyone else.
Current pleasure? Watching The Last Kingdom.
What is something or someone you’re coveting at the moment? Nothing really just because of where I am right now emotionally
What is one sustainability practice you incorporate in your work/life? I took a sabbatical year to rest. So I am currently living in Brasil. But I have been incorporating a lot of natural products in my parent’s daily routine. Also Brasil rains a lot so I created a tank to contain the water, so we can save it to water the plants. I am also buying local vegetables to support the small farms and the locals that are going through a tough time right now.
Who is a thought leader you admire? Sri Sri Ravi Shankar. He is the founder of Art of Living. A great spiritual leader who inspires me everyday with his love and compassion for humanity. He also reminds me that enlightenment is possible.
What / who represents Beauty to you? Anyone or anything that fits the protocol of internal beauty will call my attention.
What does Beauty mean to you? Beauty is a combination of beautiful soul and mind. The face is where it is reflected.
What is one Self Care practice you enjoy? Using organic essential oils. I love using honey, aloe vera, and avocado in my hair. I usually create my own masks. Recently I am obsessed with this home made facial mask with papaya and honey, it creates a youthful look.
What is one change you hope to see in the world that you make an effort to embody? That universal truths are there to be demystified. One must find his own truth then media, society, government cannot control or dictate who we are anymore.
You’ve been given a magic wand, what is your first spell? The removal of veil of maya. It’s my biggest dream for humanity. To move beyond all the illusions, lies, and distractions that limits us to see our real selves. Maya has great power over ego and fear.
