Carolina Gamboa

I was once a college student who believed in international relations and the power of numbers to fix the world. When I went out to face reality, I realized that numbers for the sake of numbers was not my purpose and I really didn't want to prove anybody wrong in international relations.

I began working in the technology sector making myself useful by designing and managing the biggest technology events in Colombia. I was part of a team. I loved to bring the best of the people I worked with and to help them find professional and personal alignment. By this time, I was married and had already began to experience mindfulness without knowing it.

The birth of my two children helped me deepen my self awareness up to the point that after 12 years of professional focus on events, I resigned.

What came next was the beginning of the fullness of my life. With the support of my husband, I began doing consultancy, but through time, I discovered that something was missing. At that point I read about SIY and went to Washington to take the 2 Day Program. It was the first time that I was getting to understand what mindfulness was about and it made a profound sense to me. I felt that I have found my purpose.

Back in Colombia and with the help of a dear friend, I began to share what I had learned in SIY. I was driven by the power of being present and I wanted to share this  experience with my friends and family. But my drive didn't stop there. I decided I wanted to share mindfulness in a more structured way and at the same time, I wanted it to be massive. I engaged in the SIY Teacher Training Program and I began to develop a mobile app based on mindfulness and inspired in human wisdom.

Now as a Certified Teacher, I am deeply moved and humbled by the power of SIY. My commitment with it is profound because I am the living proof of its transformational spirit.
