Emilio Mercuriali is the founder of Diamond Logos Turkey and a leading facilitator in retreats on self-discovery and personal growth. He specializes in leading retreats on the Essence work and the Enneagram.At a young age, Italian-born Emilio discovered a passion for spiritual teachings and traveled to India to immerse himself in the study of self-inquiry, ego-psychology, and interpersonal growth development.
From 1996-2006, Mercuriali participated in “Path of Love” training and served as a facilitator.
In 2003-2004, he completed training in Trauma Resolution and Somatic experiencing with Diane Poole. In 2005, he studied at the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling in London.
Since 1998, Mercuriali has been studying and practicing Diamond Logos teachings with Faisal Muqaddam. He is now a senior teacher of Diamond Logos teachings and is based in Istanbul, Turkey.
His love and passion for teaching stems from a desire to integrate his understanding of the so-called “spiritual” experiences or Essential Qualities into daily life. In his words,
“I love teaching. It was important for me to organize and present what I have learned from all my teachers. Teaching is a way for me to bring something which seems to be fleeting into daily life, to make it more embodied. Teaching is my practice. I like being with people in the context where they are open and sincere and motivated to find the truth about themselves. It is a privilege to be the messenger about the possibility of being free within life. Bringing this teaching to my students is important because I know that it’s powerful and that it can liberate them. It’s a gift to humanity. The more people know about this the more changes there can be.”
Emilio’s knowledge of ancient spiritual tradition and modern psychology comes together in his fine and complex understanding of Essential Living.
His sessions and workshops are based on this clear view of life and how to support individuals in their quest for personal freedom.
