"I'm a student and strive to maintain a beginners mind. All I can share is what I've learned from these incredible Beings and my personal experience of immersing myself in the practices, mindsets and ways of these esteemed teachers.  These are gifts passed to me and now I offer them to those also curious." ~ Chivito

From a young age Chivito had dived into the mysteries of nature and the unseen but deeply felt presence within all things.

At one point, he sold his Jazz Club Restaurant and everything he owned, put a few clothes and a journal in a backpack and set off around the world in search of the Masters and Medicine men he had only read about.  He was determined to discover if they and the stories of their magic were real.  

Well, he found them.  He lived and trained with Kahunas in Hawaii, was taken under the wing of great mystics in India who were said to be over 140 years old and trained with them for 6 years.  He spent 3 months in silence practicing intense meditation and rituals learning to dissolve his body into The Everything.  He's been initiated in several energy healing traditions in India, Thailand, Mexico and the U.S.  He's trained and skilled in many healing arts.


Chivito received his certification as an Ayurveda Practitioner in both the U.S. and in India. He did his internship with Ayurveda Doctors in their clinics and the only foreigner out of 400 students and doctors to attend an invite only two week Ayurveda Conference.


He lived with village shaman and Healers in India.


 He's trained and been initiated by Native American Elders in WA where he was initiated as Chivito Cowa.  He's been mentored by Navajo and Hopi elders in the SW.

Chivito has dedicated his life to serving others and maintaining a beginners mind and hence a student always curious and excited to learn. He searches out the Masters themselves, undergoes their rites of passage and initiations and then translates his experience so others may also tap into the beautiful mystery.
