About this podcast:
In this episode, I interview my beloved Buru (boo + guru) and partner in crime about his awakening moment. He shares his stories of being in one of the biggest boy bands of our time Menudo and how he chose to leave the stage to find a deeper truth that was calling him.
Spiritual Teacher, Life Coach, Author, Holistic Vocal Coach, Mystic, Singer/Songwriter
Ash Ruiz has had the honor to guide, celebrate and support others in realizing and confidently being the loving intelligence they truly are for the past 20 years through speaking engagements, workshops, retreats, healing concerts, private and group sessions and by serving along with his group Here II Here as the melodious soundtrack for the greatest spiritual leaders of our time including Eckhart Tolle, Marianne Williamson, Deepak Chopra, Gangaji, Adyashanti, Neale Donald Walsch, Michael Beckwith, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, Jean Houston, Byron Katie and The Tibetan State Oracle to the Dalai Lama.
Having performed in his teens for millions of screaming fans across the planet with latin-sensation band, Menudo, Ash then dove off the top of Machu Picchu into an intense period of open awareness and self-inquiry among the shape-shifting shamans and their wondrous means of dying deep in the Amazonian Rainforest.
Emerging with a faint note of jungle essence on his breath, his eyes washed clean of descriptive frameworks, he began to sing the song of effortless wholeness. For the next 14 years, Ash ceaselessly downloaded brilliant, Rumi-esque songs which became the lifeblood of “conscious music” band Here II Here (formerly Inner Voice). Ash’s peace-promoting lyrical wizardry – and open fondness for the occasional chocolate-chip cookie – continues to inspire countless thousands of fans worldwide to live and celebrate the beautiful perfection of their authentic self. With an intensely vivid clarity spiked by constant spasms of rolling laughter, Ash’s workshops, talks and music have been featured at The United Nations, on ABC’s Good Morning America, and in large spiritual communities and performance venues throughout the world and now he is here, delighted to be of service to your ever-opening heart, on your adventurous freefall into vivid clarity.
