Breve apresentação pessoal

Um pouco sobre minha vida e meu trabalho

Como você sabe, as atividades de uma pessoa não definem realmente quem ela é, mas aqui está uma visão geral do que faço

“Apenas podeis ser quem sois, compartilhando quem sois.” (Um Curso de Amor)

Sou copresidente e coeditor da Take Heart Publications, uma editora baseada na Califórnia. Atuo como palestrante internacional, organizador de eventos, facilitador de grupos e criador de conteúdos digitais para os livros Um Curso de Amor e Um Curso em Milagres. Minha esposa e eu trabalhamos juntos para compartilhar nossos insights e vivências pessoais sobre Unicidade, Presença, Despertar da Consciência, Não Dualidade, Felicidade, Conhecimento Direto (Gnose), Meditação e outros tópicos. Estive em mais de 35 países e vivi muitos anos na Ásia. Sou formado em engenharia aeronáutica pelo ITA e tenho muito prazer de viajar e conhecer pessoas e culturas diversas.

Apresentação sobre Um Curso de Amor em Vitória, Brasil

Nasci no Brasil e me interessei por desenvolvimento pessoal e autoconhecimento desde muito jovem. Aos 17 anos comecei a participar de um grupo de estudos muito profundo e eclético. Pouco tempo depois me tornei professor de tradições de sabedoria e de meditação, passando a maior parte de meu tempo livre, enquanto cursava engenharia aeronáutica, estudando as obras clássicas do oriente e do ocidente. Não estava interessado em religião, mas sim nas filosofias de vida e na psicologia aplicada.

After working as an aeronautical engineer for a couple of years, my increased interest in becoming a full-time wisdom teacher combined with a series of dreams that offered inner guidance, I left my career and moved to Asia, where I lived and traveled for 18 years. I studied cultural anthropology, Sanskrit and the Bhagavad Gita, Advaita Vedanta, Taoism, Buddhism, and the teachings of Krishnamurti, Vivekananda, Ramana Maharshi, Gurdjieff and Ouspensky, Theosophy, Kabbalah, and others. Most of my time in Asia was spent in India, Nepal, Mongolia, and Thailand.

During this time I delivered a large number of lectures and also formed study groups or sanghas, guiding meditation practices and teaching many courses. After marrying one of my students in Mongolia, Budkhand “Budhi”, she and I became life and teaching partners. She takes part in all activities and is also a committed teacher and spiritual practitioner.

Budhi and I have been driven to the immeasurable wisdom in the books A Course of Love and A Course in Miracles, so we have been sharing mostly from these books in the last years. We work for Take Heart Publications in partnership with its founder, Glenn Hovemann. We are also supporting members of the Wild Grace Community in California, USA.

Rodrigo Cayres has been living anything but an ordinary life. At 17 he was already deeply engaged with spiritual groups devoted to practicing meditation and studying diverse paths to awakening. He soon became a teacher and organized national-level events in Brazil, where he lived. At 24, following an inner calling and guidance through lucid dreams, he left a career in Aeronautical Engineering to become a full-time wisdom teacher. He traveled to 35 countries and delivered over 2,500 presentations on self-knowledge, awakening, meditation, oneness, presence, compassion, and so on. He lived for many years in Asia, mostly in India, Mongolia, Thailand, and Nepal. While in India, he received hundreds of hours of teachings from the Dalai Lama. In recent years, he and his wife have been mostly sharing the non-dual wisdom in A Course in Miracles and A Course of Love, working to disseminate the works published by Take Heart Publications.
