What is Curflexion?

When we step between opposing mirrors we are stepping into an infinite reflection. Imagine now that your body becomes transparent while you are standing between those two mirrors. What would you see? You would see pure, endless space. You would be looking at infinity from infinity and hence subject and object would disappear eliminating all source of conflict, allowing for perfect space, wholesome spontaneity, inner sustainability and profound fulfillment to manifest.

I call this Curflexion.


“In this book we explore each of the composites of human experience that keep us being a part of an endless, exhausting, confusing and painful conflict-spawning matrix in order to understand and alleviate our condition. We will also explore a practical model to embody Curflexion so that we may finally step into the vast open space of freedom that we all intuitively know exists beyond suffering.”


Pedro is a master of "...educating in the radical sense, i.e., Latin “educo”: to draw out or bring forth (that which is already within)"

About the Book


“We have been longing for a permanent solution to our constant dissatisfaction. Here it is. And it's not what you were expecting.”

This book will guide us through clarifying three main paradoxes that are the key to our liberation. The profound experiential understanding of these three paradoxes will then result in the natural dissolution of the basic misunderstandings concerning the nature of our internal human configuration.  The result of this realignment generally produces a profound relaxation in our need to conceptualize, fix, structure, solidify and control our surroundings and our sense-of-self to the point where we end up opening up and accessing the space of all possibilities. A space where there is no lack, no effort, no tension, no doubt as well as full grounding, full clarity and full understanding of our human experience.  This approach is not based on any particular philosophical, religious or ideological approximation or set of assumptions and it is absolutely open to all individuals regardless of their background, previous experience, or prevailing beliefs. This book has been written with the intention of being a profound transformational tool for those that are deeply tired of the distractions and self-perpetuating cycles of dissatisfaction that we experience, and are ready to find meaning and clarity in a revolutionary, non-sequential and non-causal approximation to ultimate freedom.  

This book is not to be conceived as an academic, sequential or conceptual approximation to address a gradual understanding and systematization of the elimination of suffering. Far from being a psychological manual or another self-help book, this work is intended to be an applied philosophical invitation accessible to all interested in experiencing the complete and irreversible cessation of suffering, not tomorrow, not in 10 days, not in five years, and not in 20 years, but every second of every moment that we are able to notice and embody the fully independent, self-sustainable, self-fulfilling and entirely self-contained state of Curflexion.


Pedro is the rarest and best kind of teacher: He not only empowers those around him to walk the path for themselves, he empowers them to find the path. And he does it from the power of finding his own. He is a living paradox. His mind is sharp, honed like the blade of a sushi chef, but he has put it to work unraveling the mind. What a gift!

Are you looking for things to make sense in your life?


“Beyond everything we falsely believe to be our Centre,
 we can discover the extraordinary space of Curflexion.”

As human beings, we are constantly in pursuit of our Center, our Internal Home, the space within us that brings clarity and understanding to who we are and what we stand for. We are constantly looking for a space where we can rest in unquestioned harmony with ourselves. We all have a profound intuition that drives this search but we rarely find true and lasting results. We seem to believe that our Center may be success, recognition, money, appreciation, position, wisdom, exploration, nature, exercise, work, relationships, family, independence, knowledge, meditation, writing, etc.  Nevertheless, even if we believe we have found our Center, sooner or later we eventually notice that it is shifting, always presenting us with challenges, always at risk, and always unstable.

Actually, what we believe to be our Center is actually not our Center but a construction of hopes, possibilities and actual abilities that converge temporarily in a position where we derive direction, sense and pleasure regardless of what these may mean for others. It is an internal, temporary (long-term or short-term), synchronization of possibilities that sooner or later shifts, dissolves, changes or falls apart altogether.

There is great news though. Discovering our true Center is possible, yet it is definitely not accessible through over-the-counter solutions, practical fixes, sensationalist self-help books or other conceptual configurations . Our Center is not what we imagine it to be, it is not what we say it is, it is not what we hope it is, and it is not what we thought it was in the past or what we hope it will be in the future.  Our Center is not what we have constructed to support ourselves, it is not our education, our credentials, our experiences, our travels, our dwellings, our reputation, our family, our relationships, our preferences, our transcendental experiences or even our genetic predispositions. Our Center is actually beyond all of this.
