Born in Argentina, Carlos L’Abbate was a primary school teacher in his early twenties and dedicated the better part of his youth to working with homeless children and older people. These experiences brought about many questions about our relationship to life and death, about the meaning of life and the truth of our existence. In 1989, he left Buenos Aires and began to search for new understandings and responses to these questions. He travelled extensively and during this period, Carlos followed several spiritual paths as well as studied numerous techniques connected to the body and mind; philosophy, psychology and health. This combined knowledge and experience makes Carlos’s work a special and unique practice
