Jose Hernandez was an electrical engineer with no background in art. After a near-death experience in January 2000, and a long, difficult physical recovery, his life path changed dramatically.
After 4 years of counselling, Jose finally accepted his new path and began creating transformational, ascension art as a meditative tool inviting others to share his experience, the connection with true self and love, without words or dogma.
Inner Immersion was created as a breakthrough modality based on Jose’s art and is an invitation to share the personal transformation and freedom Jose found in his near death experience. To date Jose has worked with over a thousand people in Inner Immersion workshops. He has had great success as a ‘cross-over’ modality working with addiction, PTSD, releasing blocks and trauma, as well as in the personal development and transformational fields.
Jose has also co-founded Immersive Arts, a collaborative of art and design professionals to offer centering, calming experiences in institutional and corporate settings, while providing the platform for deeper quantitative research into the art’s impact on health and wellbeing outcomes.
Jose is a member of the Association of Transformational Leaders. He lives in British Columbia with his wife, Anastasia, and their youngest daughter, Gabrielle. He travels regularly to speak on his near death experience and on the effect of art on healing and wellness. A profile of Jose’s experience and work is featured in the Netflix Docu-series, Surviving Death, scheduled for release worldwide early 2021.
