See the inside out

In my day-to-day life, I work with homes and people. Better saying, with the inside of both. Through an individualized therapeutic approach, I interpret houses and their inhabitants, possibly suggesting changes to improve people’s lives in their multiple dimensions and contexts.
From the hundreds of consultations and accompaniments I have…


Resting in comfort and the separation of relationship.

Here in the Northern Hemisphere, we have comfortable homes, at least for the material they are built, and where we can sleep comfortably rested. The temperature, sounds, textures, or lighting are adjustable, minimized, and filtered so that we can be and rest as gently as possible.

The rescue and remembrance of the ancient and complex systemic wisdom of the place we occupy is a life process that must be cared for and attended to in responsibility, integrity, and humbleness.
I leave you some of the stones that guide my path.

  • Why do we insist on only looking inward?
  • Why do we think that our physical, emotional, and psychic well-being is only dependent on the interior of our homes?
  • Why do we control and shape our inner environments according to rules imported from other places and cultures?

Feng Shui gave me a voice. During years of research and practice, I dedicated myself to its secrets and teachings, followed its ancestral steps, and brought it renewed to the here and now.

Eco-anxiety has been my companion for more than a decade. It brings me down in sorrow and grief for a living, complex but collapsing world. Some days I barely sleep, others don’t have the strength to come out of bed. Sometimes unbearable, this feeling has a weight of its own…

How does an idea make you feel?
What’s the weight of your joy?
Is there a path with no weeds?
What is the texture of your sorrow?
