spent 10 years as an electrical and manufacturing engineer
in Silicon Valley before he followed a lifelong calling toward
Shamanism and attended a workshop conducted by Michael Harner
in 2003. The profound experiences during that workshop started
Cesar on a path of ever deeper self exploration and spiritual
connection. In 2004, synchronistic circumstances brought him
in contact with his current teacher, Rev. Chris Faulconer,
of the 21st Century Mystery School located in Pine Mountain,
California. The first instruction Cesar received was in Tarot
and Kabbalah, followed by weekly Journeywork. In 2005, Cesar
began training with Chris as a guide to others during their
Journeys. In 2006, Cesar commenced work as a solo practitioner
and guiding his own clients.
Cesar is currently enrolled at Pacifica Graduate Institute
in the Masters in Counseling Psychology program with an emphasis
in Depth Psychology. At Pacifica, Cesar has studied Carl Jung’s
technique of Active Imagination, and he is currently working
on a thesis about an embodied approach to psychological alchemy.
"The journey that Cesar
facilitated with me, was magical yet practical. It helped me find light in the deepest chasms and love
in the loneliest places. Within a few days after the journey,
I noticed changes happening within me, my work, and my relationships.
Cesar's style was gentle and compassionate while providing enough
strength to take me where I needed to go." --Camille
"I feel that Cesar guided me toward a root, core part of
myself, a place where I communed with deeper energies and images.
There I found strength and aliveness and grace that I was not
fully aware of, and I found ways to contact that and dance with
it a little. In some ways, I feel that Cesar guided me to a
new, empowering experience." --A.
