Juan Ruiz Naupari with Students


Pneuma means Spirit or breath in Ancient Greek. Within The Pneuma, the philosophy of all eras is synthesized. It is the origin and the goal of inner psychological and spiritual education which leads individuals and communities to absolute happiness.

It offers a complete, multidisciplinary education for the cultivation of consciousness and inner knowledge through our academic, artistic and spiritual programs.


Pneuma offers over 30 years of experience in human development with a team of professionals in the fields of psychology, psychiatry, medicine, philosophy, education, fine arts, sciences, and spirituality.

Its focus is on the experience of the transpersonal and the development of human potential.

Pneuma Institute Breathwork


Pneuma Breathwork is a revolutionary, deep and easy practice that gives natural access to extraordinary or transpersonal states of consciousness. These states allow for the exploration of the more subtle and refined inner dimensions of the psyche.
The objective of Pneuma Breathwork is to open our perception to the deeper unknown contents of our psyche in order to make contact with our spiritual essence, with inner peace, and to gradually heal our lives.
