Immediately behind our human experience of internal separation and suffering, there is a vast and open space of understanding, connection and compassion, where we become fully alive and at peace with existence and with ourselves.

A Masterful "One Stop Shop" of a Book!


A masterful "One Stop Shop" for everything you'll ever need to know about the "nuts and bolts" of the "human condition," how to transcend the "self-inflicted wounds" it naturally engenders and, even more importantly, how to maximize an as yet untapped Limitless Potential to Be -- not through personal self-effort that only serves to reinforces ego, but through a direct experience of that "Self-Same Limitless Nature of Being."

On a more personal note, as those of us who love the "heartfelt insights" Dr. Cortina's ingenious questions on Face Book inevitably call forth know, 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)"; as another master teacher and dear friend is fond of putting it.

Buy this book -- you won't be disappointed!

Rich Hay, Author of "Out of My Mind and Back to My Senses" and "The Object of Life Is To Find Out Who I Am."



"This is the real deal. Dr. Cortina's words are so profound and true. It brings together wisdom in a format I can understand, in a real world way. I'm grateful for his understanding of the mind and his great capacity to bring it to the world in a helpful way."

~ Dr. Lara Patriquin, MD



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. This is Curflexion.

Finished reading the first round of Curflexion and WOW! I feel some of the words rippling and swirling and some sinking into stillness whole and complete into Silence...utterly non-utterable Silence. Thank you for the instant years of you that shine in this book!  ~ J.T.

I have been a buddhist monk in Thailand, studying Zen for more than 18 years, I have some experiences in hermits monasteries and also some of solitude and silence in Siberian and Thai forests and caves. I've read Zen classics, buddhists sutras, and some of christian mystics and fathers of the desert... ...and from all this experiences I must say, that this book is just brilliant! This 'must' come from deep understanding of total freedom. Thank you! ~ J.S.

"In this book, we will explore each of the composites of human experience that keep us being part of our apparently endless, exhausting, confusing, and painful separation condition, in order to understand and alleviate our situation. 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 intuitively know exists beyond our daily experience of confusion, separation, anxiety, or overall suffering.

This book is certainly not to be presented as an academic or even necessarily as a structurally logical approximation to address a gradual understanding and systematization of the elimination of suffering. Far from being a psychological manual or a traditional self-help book, this work is intended to be an engaging and applied philosophical and educational invitation towards actually experiencing the fully independent, self-sustainable, self-fulfilling, and entirely self-contained state of Curflexion."



More about CURFLEXION ...

"In Curflexion, there is no grasping or sense of being incomplete, and therefore, we experience Being at its fullest. An answer to our suffering condition as human beings actually lies in allowing for the pristine, endless space of Curflexion to manifest, rather than attempting to fix our problems by juxtaposing positivity with negativity or trying to find lasting refuge from suffering in the many alternatives we are usually offered.

The way to access Curflexion is not through a particular method, strategy, sequential procedure or mechanism. The fact is that there is actually nothing to change or oppose. In essence, we access Curflexion naturally and effortlessly as a result of allowing the profound assimilation and deep experiential understanding of the true nature of our internal reality."
