Om, Ricardo Cristovao

About us

Om (Ricardo Cristovao) was born in Portugal, star sign Aquarius, in 1979. Youngest son of 10 children, he always had many influences and visions of what life is and what it should be, but was never satisfied by these small definitions of Life. Since a very young age, he felt that he was a Jedi, a user of the Force but didn’t know how to use it…Also due to being raised in a very Christian family, already at the age of 7, a deep understanding came that if Jesus was Son of God and if We were his Brothers, We should also be Sons of God and have the Power of God. This however was quickly forgotten. At the age of 21, while exploring with some etheogenic substances, he felt an enormous revelation that All is Interconnected, Alive and Conscious somehow and that we affect each other in ways we cannot perceive through our normal senses. The experiences continued to grow until there was a big collapse. The reason was lack of understanding and missing the progressive step by step that practice and meditation provides. After some psychiatrist almost destroyed his life with a prescription to make him a vegetable for 2 years…
