Cristina Leandro Faria
Manager Partner da Lead Yourself | The Vanguard of Leadership
Co-Founder and Coordinator of the Fundação do Ser Project.
She has extensive experience in several different activity sectors, resulting from her activity as a Management and Coaching Consultant.
Specialist and pioneer in Portugal in QE, QS and Integral Systemic Approach, where he has been developing several tools for expanding awareness both for organizations and for the individual public.
She considers herself an "Explorer of the Paths of Consciousness" and believes that consciousness is what keeps the person imprisoned in the illusion, be it (the consciousness) more restrictive or more expanded. And that "freedom" only happens when we allow the disintegration of the "person" within us. Because, according to Cristina, we are not the "person" or "character" of this film that is our life. We are much more than that, we are nothing or the "absolute" (according to some oriental philosophies) that originates the experience of existence.
Cristina, like a growing number of "explorers", argues that the "absolute" is the state of Agapè. Agapè is a word from the ancient Greek that represents love without form, without emotions, without beginning or end, without needs, it is ineffable and inexpressible ... It does not depend on conscience, spirituality or personal development, on the contrary, because these are all requirements / needs of the person, which act as obstacles to the Agapè state, in contrast to humility, simplicity and acceptance.
There is a path that takes us from reason to heart, and according to Dr. Jean Luc Ayoun, a defender of the Agapè state, (and that Cristina has already had the opportunity to bring Portugal to a seminar, because she has admiration for him and respect for all the discoveries he has made and shared, as well as a personal friendship) this path is called the "childhood path", in which the cornerstones are humility and simplicity.
Cristina argues that the Expansion of Consciousness is important and fundamental up to a certain moment, as it will allow to assimilate better concepts like those previously explained, but there will come a time when we will not want more answers because we will also have no questions. And only at that stage will we be ready to allow the Agapè state to awaken in us and in our lives.
Professor Amit Goswami, theoretical quantum physicist, author of several Best Sellers such as “Universo Auto Consciente”, among others, is part of the list of influencers (and personal friend) who somehow helped her to go on her exploratory path, because it was through reading and studying her books that Cristina started the path of "expanding consciousness", without being held hostage by philosophies or fads emerging from the NewAge movements.
Cristina argues that it is only when the cry of pain, fear and conflict is silent, that we can hear love.
As a result of his considerable experience as an Integral Coach, he is aware that the old existential paradigms are changing dramatically, and this wave of fear caused by the pandemic, by confinement and its consequences, will serve as exceptional catalysts to wake humanity from the state of lethargy in which is found.
People will involuntarily be confronted with their own demons or fears. Society in general will be confronted with the fragility and ephemerality of everything it believes to be safe. However, he argues that all this apparent imbalance (in the person's point of view) may, if we allow it, lead us more quickly to the Agapè state. And this is an individual choice! "We either choose pain or love!" as BIDI or NISARGADATTA MAHARAJ says
Cristina, in addition to writing several articles on this topic, has been invited to develop comprehensive diagnostic tools, with regard to the Organizational and Individual Climate, being a pioneer in this field in Portugal.
Facilitates Workshops (systemic and integrated), Seminars, Inspirational Talks and Integral Team Building. Minister Training and specific actions for entrepreneurs, managers and teams in Advanced and Disruptive Leadership. He specializes in rescuing companies, teams and projects and for this reason his services are normally requested to resolve situations in which more than "Know How" is needed. She is also a co-founder of the Fundação do Ser e Consciência em Movimento projects.
