Agenor Cury de Castro began his meditation practice in search of mental clarity, and the ability to deal with his inner critic, to gain focus and determination. His first training began with Zen meditation. He has been studying Buddhism, the Yogic-breathing technique Pranayama, Cognitive Behavioral Therapy and the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali for a number of years, in order to find inspiration, clarity and support for his meditation practice. Looking for a pragmatic structure that could bring all of that together, he studied Shinzen Young’s Unified Mindfulness methodology with Jeff Warren and Juliana Raye.
To further his studies, he is participating in X-Hale’s Meditation Teacher Training. After 30 years as a corporate executive, his goal is to use Meditation and Mindfulness practices to assist people through personal and professional challenges and transitions.
