José is the president and co-founder (with wife Lena Stevens) of Power Path Seminars and School of Shamanism, an international school and consulting firm dedicated to the study and application of shamanism and indigenous wisdom to business and everyday life. José completed a ten year apprenticeship with a Wixarika (Huichol) Maracame in the Sierras of Central Mexico and has since gone on to study other Toltec traditions as well as traditions from the Amazon, Andes and Europe extensively.
In 1983, he completed his doctoral dissertation at the California Institute of Integral Studies focusing on the interface between shamanism and western psychological counseling. Since then, he has studied cross-cultural shamanism around the world to distill the core elements of shamanic healing and practice. As an international lecturer and consultant, he has worked with a huge range of individuals and businesses to help them discover their most effective path of service and success. He has had the good fortune to work with individuals at the highest levels of government and professional life to support their understanding of their own potential and that of their associates. As an integral part of this work, Jose has helped to develop systems for understanding people that are unparalleled in the field of psychology and business.
