"The idea is to help people realize how important they are, how relevant they are, how they matter, how they are in a very, very specific way, special.
We all have something special about us. And to identify, to be aware of that, so that we can make more informed decisions moving forward, can change lives in a profound way. A lot of what we do is reconnect people with hope and opportunity."

I chose to do the immersion myself... and the experience blew me away. It helped me connect some dots that I didn't even realize needed connecting. I believed in the program from what I saw in clients, but having that firsthand experience, how it affected me, that's a different ball game. And I got excited. Because when something works for me, I wanna share it with others.

[Inner] Immersion has shed light down unexplored or forgotten corridors. The session was multi-faceted.  Cathartic is the first word that comes to mind if I had to sum up [Inner] Immersion in one word. Each session is unique too, adding to the overall experience.


Performing Artist & Licensed Massage Therapist, Florida

Jose Hernandez is a transformational leader, artist and co-founder of Inner Immersion, LLC.

He has spent close to two decades integrating his near-death experience, sharing his insight through his art and the Inner Immersion modality which he offers as a support for addiction professionals, and licensed mental health professionals to effect significant breakthroughs and build trust.

In 2004 Jose began creating art as a meditative tool. His work has now exhibited in galleries across the US and hangs in private and corporate collections worldwide and in permanent installations in the prestigious Cleveland Clinic collection, the Nicklaus Children’s Dan Marino Outpatient Centre in Florida, and other healing centers across the US and Canada.

Hi, I'm Jose Hernandez, and I'd like to share with you why and how I created this practice...

While many people have now heard the story of my near-death experience, what isn’t as common knowledge is my journey to integrate my experience.

Before my NDE I was an atheist, closed minded, and very entrenched in my views. My experience shook my foundations to the core, and I faced the loss of everything I had believed. On the other hand, my experience had been so ineffably beautiful and powerful, but was it real?

I became more distressed as time wore on, the vivid immediacy of my experience would not leave me, and I became depressed. It seemed an easy option to dismiss it as a beautiful illusion and try to slip back into my old life, but I no longer fit.

I was desperate to get help and was referred to a psychiatrist. I was hoping someone could give me a pill to make everything go back to the way it was – thankfully, I had no such luck. I was bounced between a total of five mental health professionals over a period of 4 years and faithfully attended appointments week after week, dragging an oxygen tank behind me. Despite my sincere desire for relief, I found it impossible to express myself. It wasn’t until I made a genuine connection with my therapist who sat beside me, held my hand, who helped me feel safe enough to open up, that I was able to process and begin to integrate what had happened to me. It had taken three full years before I could say a single word about it. That was almost twenty years ago.

Once I embraced my experience, I realized I couldn’t go back to my old self and my old life.  I had nowhere to go but forward, unknown as it was. I began painting in an attempt to take others on the journey through conscious color I had experienced. I began working with people, one on one at first, using my art to guide them through the color in meditation. Over time the practice has evolved to its current form, and I have now worked with well over a thousand people using the Inner Immersion modality. I know from firsthand experience what it is like to need help and yet be unable to open up. My NDE story and Inner Immersion helps people understand who they really are and to frame their experience in a new light; it gives them the resources to move forward with a new perspective, more whole and at peace. 

We have now partnered with Certive Health to certify licensed mental health professionals in Inner Immersion. Our goal is now to get the valuable tool which is the Inner Immersion breakthrough modality into the hands of those who can do the most good with it and touch the lives of our most over-burdened and most vulnerable sectors.  

I had this experience that I saw myself, the parts of myself that I would judge all seemed to fuse into one Mass of energy and move toward me until it eventually became part of me, the part I was previously ashamed of and didn't want to show myself, let alone the outside world.

It evolved me into a more complete, full, perfectly imperfect self. The sessions did do so much healing for me. Thank you!


Actor, Florida

I had the rare opportunity to attend one of Jose's Inner Immersion group sessions which provided a multitude of modalities. I found that the incorporation of sound and meditative techniques were greatly enhanced through the use of color, frequency and art. It brought me to a new level of meditation that I have found nowhere else. I recommend this experience to anyone who wishes to find a deep level of peace to the soul. It is truly a unique personalized experience.
