The journey to MIND Architecture

For years, as an Architect, I focused with my colleagues on Sustainability. Until I reached a point where I had to face this thought: "How can we design sustainable environments without actually taking into consideration the sustainability of the individuals that are going to occupy these environments?

"Mind Architecture" was the answer: a discipline that introduces individuals to the 5 dimensions of a sustainable human experience & guides them to master these dimensions by applying the S.M.I.L.E Method. How to deal with:

  1. The self: SELF-MASTERY   
  3. Circumstances: INNER PEACE
  4. People: LEADERSHIP
  5. Everything at the same time: EMOTIONAL RESILIENCE

MIND Architecture is a no-commitment solution with immediate benefits!

There has been no higher satisfaction for me than dedicating my life to significance.

Today, after so many years of connecting with people, I commit to my mission to change the world one heart at a time.

My Guiding Stars

Mahatma Gandhi

"You must be the change you wish to see in the world." A leader who shook the world in a gentle way; a model and Truth.

Mother Theresa

"Yesterday is gone. Tomorrow hasn't yet come. We have only Today. Let us begin." A model of humility and forgiveness.

Martin Luther King

"If you can't fly, then run. If you can't run, then walk. If you can't walk, then crawl. But by all means, keep moving."
