Mr. Ernesto Ortiz


Noted artist, author and healer, Ernesto Ortiz has devoted his life to exploring and communicating the language of the heart, primal movement and deep inner spaces. Over the past 25 years, Ernesto has taken thousands of people on a journey from physical and emotional inertia to the freedom of ecstasy, from the chaos of the chattering ego-mind to the blessed emptiness of stillness and inner silence. His Workshops and Spiritual Travel adventures have an electric intensity that unifies the spiritual with the mundane, from the poetic discovery of the soul to the modern approach of ancient Shamanic practices.

Ernesto is recognized in the holistic, health and metaphysical field as an artist, writer, poet, inspiring facilitator, photographer, teacher and therapist. His training began at an early age in Mexico with Curanderos and Shamans and has continued for many years with world-renowned teachers in Transpersonal Psychology, Shamanism, Music Therapy, Bodywork and more. In 1994 Ernesto created “Journey to the Heart”, a company dedicated to the upliftment of consciousness and the well-being of people by using practical tools to help integrate the physical with the mental, emotional and spiritual bodies. Providing tools for growth, the company offers a variety of classes and workshops: Akashic Records classes, Trance Dance and Tantric Shamanism, Shamanic Healing Techniques, Sacred Geometry, Meditation Techniques, Tian Di Bamboo Massage, Karmapa Reiki, Relationship workshops, Spiritual Photography and more…
