About Us

Know and Exist

We work to reduce the gap between being and exist, between our dreams, our vital passion and the world in which we develop each day. At present, this gap is unsustainable. From the most advanced psychotherapy, the most innovative management, quantum physics and neuroscience itself, we know that being and existing nourish each other. And only on the balance and the experience of both it is where the sympathy, health and fullness of our existence lies.

Life Learning

We understand as vital learning the creative, original and meaningful capacity that every human being has to intervene and understand the challenges of their life. We seek that each person understands the multiple possibilities of learning that their life provides, being able to go beyond the scripts of behaviour learned so far, discovering the value of each experience in his own growth and facilitating the development of effective skills to manage his Personal and professional balance.

Freedom of choice

We potentiate the greatest gift that the human being has, the possibility of deciding what to do with each circumstance that he has to live. Although throughout life we are taught to react to the facts, there is an essential space between the external stimulus we receive and the personal response we give. We work so that each person recognizes this space, identifies it and incorporates it into their vital choices. In this freedom to decide our growth and our fullness resides.

OUR TEAM

JAVIER GARCÍA DE ANDOÍN

I am a founding member of Self Institute. Self allows me to learn, explore and develop what has been a vital constant in my life, the desire of learning who I am and what living means. My passing through the University, my studies in psychology and the philosophy of the East and the West have been forging a capacity of listening in me. I have found in the body the natural place where this listener lives.

My activity as a therapist, trainer, Indologistand expert in Shivaism in Kashmir in its philosophical tradition and bodily work has allowed me to work in the field of yoga, body psychotherapy, education, arts and professional sport.

Through Yoga seminars, my participation in congresses, the management of artistic projects in museums and theaters, I have been fortunate to meet men and women who have enriched my life.

Of all these relationships, I would like to remark my friendship, my gratitude with the one who has been my teacher and friend Dr. Jean Klein. Today there is also Jeff Foster in the same range.and in an essential moment of change and learning, Antonio Blay. Then my gratitude to Krishnanmurti, Nissagardatta, Fred Wilson, Vimala Thakar and Raymond Panikker. And always, always, to my companion Conchi and my daughter Uma.

I also thank María Ruiz de Oña, Marcos Mansur and Iñigo Echebarria for making me part of their lives, their illusions, their hopes. I also thank María Ruiz de Oña, Marcos Mansur and Iñigo Echebarría for making me part of their lives, their illusions, their hopes.
