May we become living flames and radiate our warmth in all directions, to all our relations.
The warmth and luminosity of fire serve as a living symbol of the highest potentials of humans and world. From the ancestral Big Burst at the dawn of time and the cosmic birth of stars and galaxies, to the vibrance and depth of planetary life and the magical spark of awareness, fire’s presence is fundamental in the dance of existence. There is a great need of re-kindling the fiery essence of our elemental nature in these times of planetary crisis and opportunity.
Through various offerings, including one-on-one sessions, workshops, books, and ritual, Living Flames cultivates a wakeful, kind, and regenerative presence by way of enabling our true essence to burn and illumine our lives.
It is my great pleasure to recommend Adrián Villasenor as a guide and teacher for all who seek personal transformation in the cause of social and ecological justice. Adrián is committed to serving life on Earth, and to this service he brings a rich background as well as strong gifts of character and intellect. Having worked with Adrián both in his doctoral work at the California Institute of Integral Studies and in training groups for facilitating the Work That Reconnects, I can attest to his quiet and steady commitment to the healing of our world. His Masters degree in Holistic Science from Schumacher College and his doctorate in Ecology, Psychology, and Consciousness from CIIS help him tap a wealth of intellectual resources, while his use of the Work That Reconnects--as well as his generosity in translating the whole guidebook into Spanish--deepen his relational capacities for assisting people through existential distress. I am extremely glad for Adrian's great heart and skills in working with individuals and groups, and for his healing presence in our world.
