Like many of us, our guest, Carlos Ceballos, felt like he didn't have an obvious purpose. He had a typical office job his entire life.
But then 2020 changed everything.
Covid made his job insecured. To make things worse, the wildfire ravaging across California forced him and his family to evacuate their home. Needless to say, Carlos' life was full of uncertainty, but it was through this uncertainty when Carlos finally gained clarity about his life's purpose.
From one surreptitious moment to another, Carlos somehow reconnected with his indigenous roots in Colombia and connected with an isolated indigenous community of 50,000 people who live in the mountains of Colombia called the Ikü.
Through the teachings of the Ikü's, Carlos developed a passion about their deep wisdom about connecting with nature, understanding of human psychology and spirituality, and their way of life.
Now Carlos is on a mission to help conserve and promote the Ikü culture and wisdom, by creating a mini series documentary about the Ikü as well as starting a business to introduce Ikü's unique coffee to the world.
Listen to this episode to hear Carlo's journey of how he finally discovered his purpose, the fascinating story of how he actually ended up connecting with the Ikü community, and the wisdom they have to share for us living in "modern" society.
