In 2003, Pi Villaraza left a corporate career in Marketing Communications in his childhood Manila to embark on a sanyassin's journey into the unknown depths of mind, body and spirit. Walking across the South Philippines for one year without contacts or money, Pi eventually lived as a hermit in a deserted beach in Palawan province for two years where he experienced a profound awakening while living mostly on a live foods mono-diet diet of coconuts.
In his solitary innerwork, Pi entered into deep trance states where energy flowed through his body, sweeping his physical controls into spontaneous energy systems that took many more years later to integrate into a fascinating global movement that has officially been reported in many books, documentaries, articles and studies for how expanded states of consciousness takes place. The energy that Pi discovered has led to radical healing methods that are still being studied now for its efficacy in helping people's minds and bodies to self-regenerate. Pi's life and the inner dance has been documented in newspapers, magazines, radio, television and books around the world for its capacity to heal and transform. Pi has facilitated over fifteen thousand people in the last eight years, and has conducted numerous teacher trainings around the world.
Now called the innerdance process, www.innerdanceprocess.org the energy has found numerous applications in Medicine (www.wholenesscenter.net), the Asian Ecovillage Movement (www.emergenceconvergence.com), Education, Psychology, Neurology, Deep Ecology which brings into collaboration educators, doctors, psychologists, cognitive linguists, nutritionists, community organizers from many parts of the world interested in the meeting points between the direct experiential transformation with our current science-oriented approaches to understanding the neurological, linguistic maps and cognitive pathways of change. Pi has authored two books, Conscious Trance (The Journey To The Dancer Within) and Transformation Medicine.
