Who we are
We are people from different backgrounds who support Silo's Message. Some participate actively in this Message and others are friends of different beliefs who believe in dialogue and interrelationship to overcome social and personal conflicts.
The Message given by Silo in July 2002, consists of three parts: the Book; the Experience and the Path. The Book has long been known as "The Inner Look". The Experience is presented through eight ceremonies capable of producing spiritual inspiration and positive changes in daily life. The Way is a set of reflections and suggestions about personal, interpersonal and social life.
The Message is freely available and circulates in print or through computer networks.
Silo is the spiritual guide who appears at this time convulsed, violent and without hope. His message is simple and profound at the same time. His work transcends all borders and his followers are found in the most diverse cultures of all continents.
In 1969, Silo’s public life began with two fundamental events: a speech given on May 4 in a small town at the foot of the Andes, located on the border between Argentina and Chile, called Punta de Vacas, in front of a handful of people. This public address will be known as “The Healing of Suffering. In that same place he wrote “La Mirada Interna”, a book that would be published in 1972. Both the speech and the book are the cornerstone of his teaching.
In the first, he describes the root of suffering “… you can only end violence in yourself and others and in the world around you, through inner faith and inner meditation…”, while in “The Inner Look” he develops what the true meaning of life is:
“Here it is told how the meaninglessness of life is converted into meaning and fulfillment.
Here there is joy, love for the body, for nature, for humanity and for the spirit.
Here one renounces sacrifices, feelings of guilt and threats from beyond the grave.
Here the earthly is not opposed to the eternal.
Here one speaks of the interior revelation to which all who carefully meditate on a humble search arrive”.
Silo has given seminars, lectures and participated in mass public exhibitions in which he has expressed his views and teachings to hundreds of thousands of people from Mexico to Bombay, from Paris to Moscow, from Manila to Copenhagen, Sri Lanka and Naples, New York and Quito.
People all over the world are joining in his words of hope, of openness to the possibility of change, of certainty that we can definitely become a true human being by leaving behind the prehistory of suffering, of nihilism, of violence.
"... But in spite of everything... in spite of that unfortunate confinement, something slight as a distant sound, something slight as the dawn breeze, something that begins gently, makes its way into the interior of the human being..., Why my soul, this hope? Why this hope that from the darkest hours of my misfortune makes its way brightly?..."
