Jacques Lewensztain was born in 1946 in Cochabamba, Bolivia.
He lived afterwards in Buenos Aires, Argentina until he was 18 years old. Then he traveled through different countries and also lived, studied and worked in Israel, Turkey, France, Germany, Spain, Holland, England, New Zealand and the USA. Currently lives permanently in the Netherlands.
In the early 60s he studied mathematics at the Technion in Haifa and psychology at the Sorbonne in Paris. Later he studied psychology in further combination with human sciences and humanities at the Free University of Amsterdam and the University of Amsterdam where he graduated in 1985.
Since the late 60s he is a dedicated spiritual teacher.
His spiritual expertise and experience from this period of his life is described in the book "Yoga Art of Relaxation" which he wrote together with Kumara Malavika (Christine Klein) and Wolter Keers.
He works to this day as a management consultant and personal coach besides giving spiritual guidance.
He is presently driven to inspire others in how to deal with everyday life when operating from your true nature of being.
Quote of Jacques Lewensztain about himself:
“The powerful boundless and unreserved love I received in Bolivia during my early childhood when I grew up among the native Quechuan people is still my most powerful source of inspiration. The more than 13 years of involvement with Jean Klein and Wolter Keers has also determined my perception of spirituality. These two very different, and for me very special men, were both in their unique way lovers of life. Their approach was occasionally extremely different. This has helped me to walk my path to true nature of being in my own particular way. Many people inspired me, whom I leave further unnamed because ultimately their names are irrelevant as a measure of my understanding. Mid 60s my pressing question over "who am I" was answered by experience. How do you live your daily life when this question has ceased to exist? This motivation induces me since the early 70's to devote myself to everyday life while abiding in my true nature."
Why Inspire ?
“My drive to participate in Inspire is the conviction that acceptation, freedom and joy of life, not just control and abstinence, help you search for what you really are. The festival, for me, is the place to find different approaches. That’s how you find what suits you. You’ll be made to think, or enter silence. You might realize that lightness, playfulness, excitement and joy are part of your exploration.”
