“What makes my life extraordinary is to feel that I've contributed to the quality of life of other people. That makes me happy and is going to be meaningful when I'm on my deathbed.” ~ Jorge Ferrer

Jorge Ferrer is a clinical psychologist, public speaker, and educator, best known for his participatory approach to transpersonal, psychology, religious studies, integral education, and intimate relationships. He was core faculty for more than 20 years at the California Institute of Integral Studies in San Francisco, where he also founded the Shamanic Studies Concentration, as the chair of East-West Psychology department. He has served as advisor to the organization Religions for Peace at the UN and has also studied entheogenic shamanism for more than two decades.

“What drives me is a selfish reason: to be in a world in which I feel more at home. So, I interact to transform the world.” ~ Jorge Ferrer


In this interview:

Don't Settle
•Develop a habit of constantly seeking your own answers.
e.g: Live an intimate life that is more aligned with your evolving potentials, free from ideologies and conditioning.

Create your “Home”
•Cultivate the sense of feeling at home in your body, in your surrounding areas, your relationships and in nature.
•Strive to connect, educate, and create shared understanding.
•Be at home in your body in the moment with others.

And:

“Everything happens in the encounter, everything that happens is in the ‘in-between,’ everything emerges ‘in between’ because we're always in relationship.” ~ Jorge Ferrer


The Quest for Freedom
•The energy that you allow to work through you.
•The impulse that moves you to take action.
•When you work with an idea that is beyond your own self-centered idea of pleasure, happiness, and joy.

Life and Creative Energy
•Sexuality as the source of genuine creativity.
•Sexuality with ourselves and others as a mystery.
•Spirituality and sexuality as two sides of the same coin.

The Body Knows What's Best for the Body.
•Intentionally slow down
•Discover, “What is already happening?” Become aware of what the body does naturally.

Plus:
“Cultivate a quality of listening that includes genuine curiosity.” ~ Jorge Ferrer

Humble Openness
An approach or attitude as a way of being more porous where we cultivate a sense of mental humility and openness. A quality of life that develops when you listen to your body, instinct, and heart.


Until soon! Be curious, be inspired, simplify the way…
