Hector “delfin” fernandez
Hector Fernadez is the founder of Sensorama (Mexico) - a platform for creation, research and development of the sensory, the perception, the sensitivity, the creativity and the consciousness in the field of the aesthetic, artistic, social, formative and therapeutic exploration.
With a degree in communications, one day Hector covered his eyes with a bandage for two days and discovered the possibilities of imagination, consciousness, creativity and the wonder of the inner connection. At the same time he had a radio program where he was doing sensory experiments. He took gestalt psychology courses and experimented with different sacred and shamanic traditions. All this lead him to start the Sensorama organisation 25 years ago. His big focus today is the “Sensohealing” - perception as medicine.
He creates training and formation programs, stage shows, workshops, therapeutic experiences, interventions, sensory meditations. He shared Sensorama in several countries such as the United States, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Spain, Germany, Denmark, China, India and others. His message: Change your perception, and your world changes.
