Rodolfo was born in Mexico City and moved to the United States at a very young age. He grew up in San Diego, California and coming out of high school as one of the top of his class he made an interesting choice and signed an 8-year contract with the US Military as a Special Operations Army Reserve Soldier.

He was deployed to different parts of the world, including war zones in the Middle East, and got to see first hand what separation consciousness is doing to our world.

In 1999, he attended his first 10-day silent course of Vipassana Meditation. The clarity, insights, and messages he received from that experience inspired him to begin teaching, and at the age of 19 he became the first undergraduate at San Diego State University granted his own lecture hall to share in.

For an entire year he taught spiritual philosophy there and touched the lives of thousands of students and eventually took those teachings and created a non-profit organization called The Center for Connection, which he ran for two years, until closing it to begin traveling.

He is now recognized internationally as an author, keynote speaker, and master coach, and has shared the stage with today's top transformational leaders. 

Rodolfo has over 21 years experience practicing and teaching the principles of heart expression and self reflection. He is well known for his loving hugs, peaceful presence, and powerful insights into self-discovery, purpose, and happiness.

The practical exercises, guidance, and coaching offered by Rodolfo has led thousands to living more fulfilling lives

In 2013, he completed a full year of silent practice to dive deeply into his heart and he emerged with a mission to share the lessons and insights he gained with at least 1 million hearts and rippling out to more.

In 2016, Rodolfo returned to silence for his second year, he emerged again inspired and ready to fill hearts...this time beginning with his own, as he entered into a loving relationship on the final day of his silence...and is now happily married to her.
