Meet Zulma Reyo

Zulma was born to Puerto Rican parents in 1943 in New York. Her Puerto Rican roots gave her Latin traditions and character, while her exposure to North American and European cultures helped to shape her intellect. She studied Humanities at Puerto Rico University and completed a BA in Romance Languages and Literature at New York University, where the beginnings of her formal search to understand the complexity of the human condition began to unfold. She went on to complete an MA in Education at NYU, which was followed by post-graduate studies in psychology and counselling at San Fernando Valley State College in California.

This was the California of the ‘60s and ‘70s, and in this environment she learnt about emerging New Age developments in exploring consciousness, which in turn led her to study Primal Therapy under Arthur Janov at the LA Primal Institute. Zulma’s inner drive to know God led her to travel from the Americas to Europe, India, South America and finally back to Europe to meet different teachers and to learn from many traditions. Zulma surrounded herself in ancient wisdom and immersed herself in multiple psychotherapies (Gestalt, psychosynthesis, basic massage, bioenergetics, energy balancing, polarity, regression, and psychic arts, among others). She learnt about world religions, meditation, and various healing methods and explored eastern and western traditions (Esoteric Christianity, Theosophy, Anthroposophy, Zen, Buddhism, Sufism, Taoism, Tantra, and western philosophies, esoteric science, occultism, and parapsychology).

Zulma opened a private practice in California and New York and co-hosted a show called Dimensions in Parapsychology for Manhattan Cable TV. Zulma’s simple tools come from the fullness and the love she has known in the inner recesses within. Inner Alchemy has been developed as a system for experiencing the reality of Higher Consciousness not only as an avenue for inner experience, but also as a source of direct action in the world.

Zulma went on to found the Inner Alchemy School of Consciousness in Brazil, Argentina and Paraguay. She followed her dream of reaching more people by expanding her activities to Europe, and settled in Spain in the mid-90s. There, she consolidated her line of work and continued to develop methods of meditation and self-knowledge. Zulma now spent almost four decades of my life dedicated to teaching, writing, trainings, workshops, and conferences.

The purpose of all of this has always been to advocate for personal transformation as a way of securing social and world change, while training others to master the path of Inner Alchemy.

The Man, His Woman, His Call, Chicago

Oh, I had heard about the trials and triumphs of the great and majestic city of Chicago. Can’t say I’d ever want to live there. I am a small-town guy myself. Maybe that is why He sent me and my family to lodge there temporarily as a test of my faith to learn, train and to teach. And yes sir, we were definitely tested. My wife struggled in the beginning, but she got on board quickly to help finish our call. Iron does sharpen iron and we’re a great team as you’ll no doubt see.  

So come join me, the newly ordained Pastor Jack Riley and my wife, Cynthia, as we navigate the streets and culture of Chi-town to do God’s bidding. I manage to keep my humor and wits about me as I am called to take over a failing church in the inner city. Circumstances can get a little trying as I am surrounded by a host of family issues and all that result from the human condition called life.

This book also covers a controversial topic, that is a real-life issue, but it is handled in a sensitive manner. It is a deep emotional filled ride, laced with humor and a glorious satisfying ending, proving that if each one can reach one, we would see the change. And as the Riley family learned, if He calls you elsewhere it is for your good and the good of others.

The Rock and the Raindrop: A Space in Time (Bargain Read)

A raindrop has seen the rise and fall of civilizations and survived deserts of ice and sand. However, despite all of her adventures, this once-powerful lady has lost her way. That is, until a gust of wind—or perhaps a twist of fate—sends her face-to-face with a lowly rock. But what good could come from a conversation with a rock? Turns out, this is no ordinary rock. This particular rock watches the world around him evolve with a curious, near astonishing blend of precision, versatility and splendor, and he wonders about that. What hand lies behind such bewildering, unwavering might? When these diverse entities collide, sparks fly, and together they embark upon the path of discovery, unraveling mysteries neither would have thought possible.

In this lighthearted romp through a serious world, the rock and the raindrop combine their talents and explore the many ways—always subtle and often clever—God reveals Himself to us through nature. With the help of the surrounding forest, they unearth hidden mathematical and philosophical treasures, traces of the spiritual world working quietly behind the scenes. Replete with poetic charm, this delightful tale is an illuminating and thoughtful series of contemplations on the meaning of life, the power of faith, and the wondrous roads we travel in pursuit of the eternal adventure.


Spiritual Courage: How to Find Stregth and Happiness

Are you a frustrated Christian? Do you work hard at your faith, but find little joy in it? Do you feel like your faith should’ve made a bigger impact on your life? Do you keep falling short of your own standards? Do you find yourself thinking that this just isn’t working the way it should? Where are the peace and joy?

You’re not alone. The church is full of frustrated Christians, and it has long been obvious to outsiders. It’s no wonder that attendance is declining in almost every congregation. How often do new people join the church, only to lose interest when they witness all the fighting that plagues us? It frustrates us to see how the Church is depicted on television and in films. But we secretly fear that Christians might be the hypocrites everybody says we are.

The problem is real, but there is a solution. By purposefully practicing the spiritual disciplines in new, practical ways, we can make real changes in our lives. I’ve experienced it myself. If enough Christians learn these techniques, we can change the cultures of our congregations… Into something much more like the body Christ envisioned.
