Dr. Adrián Villaseñor Galarza
I’m passionate about human transformation in service of the living Earth. Founder and director of the Bioalchemy Institute & seed originator of the Work That Reconnects Latin America.
I’m an integral ecopsychologist, academic collaborator, international facilitator, ritualist, author, and contemplative practitioner whose work weaves together the psycho-spiritual study of the Earth-human relation, animist principles, and contemplative wisdom.
My work and research have centered on the confluence of Eastern liberation teachings, Earth-based traditions, and Ecopsychologies, resulting in an elemental framework for self-discovery, healing, and regenerative action. I’ve been engaged in transformative education for the last 17 years and I’ve worked individually for the past 8 years through a contemplative, eco-systemic, animistic, and transpersonal lens. I’m the author of a handful of books and translator into Spanish of Joanna Macy’s seminal book, Coming Back to Life: The Updated Guide to the Work That Reconnects.
The lineages of beauty, wisdom, and compassion that I’ve honored since my teens serve as the guiding force behind my yearning for personal transformation and socio-ecological viability.
My work is considered a Latin American referent when it comes to Nature Reconnection, Ecopsychologies, and Earth-based Spirituality. For more information, visit my personal website.

I feel called to contribute with spaces for growth and personal transformation, which impact human relationships and, ultimately, our relationship with the natural world.
I studied psychology, and have been working as a professor at Universidad Adolfo Ibáñez (Chile) since 2009. I’ve specialized in transpersonal psychology and I have a particular interest in somatic-experiential therapeutic methods such as Focusing, Holotropic Breathwork, Systemic Constellations, as well as trauma-informed work based on the body.
I have a special interest in non-ordinary states of consciousness and their therapeutic potential. I’ve dedicated myself in this area in both research and practice. I’ve mantained a psychotherapeutic private practice since 2009, and have facilitated Holotropic Breathwork sessions since 2010. In 2019, I directed the study “The Impact of Joanna Macy’s The Work That Reconnects.”

My life and service have always been dedicated to caring for the Earth, witnessing all the changes inside and outside the heart, the same heart that beats with the center of the cosmos.
Eco-somatic doula, guardian of birth-death and activist, student of community gerontology. Several years ago I learned about the methodology and experience of the Work That Reconnects, which changed my way of perceiving, embracing, and accompanying community processes from a different place.
My intention is to oversee the flourishing of all species in life, to accompany and continue to honor my lineage.
