HONRADO DE SERVIR.
Amados, hace más de 7 años que a través del vehículo de nuestra Escuela de Conciencia y Maestría Espiritual, comenzamos a servir a la humanidad de esta manera particular. Viajamos más de 500.000 kilómetros, recorrimos decenas de países en 4 continentes, impartimos más de 7.000 horas de clases, cursos, conferencias, sesiones de curación y meditaciones, y tocamos a varias decenas de miles de personas.
Es una bendición poder ser parte de este milagro. Es una bendición poder ver cómo la Fuente hace su trabajo a través de nosotros. No por nuestro propio esfuerzo personal, sino por la gracia. Personalmente no logramos nada de esto, solo teníamos que asegurarnos de no interponernos en el camino de la Voluntad Divina que solo quiere el bien más alto para todos.
Que sigamos siendo más abiertos, más guiados, más inspirados y más amorosos que nunca. Gracias por darnos esta oportunidad.
Con amor, humildad y bendiciones.

INCREÍBLE POTENCIAL HUMANO.
Es alucinante tener 74 medallistas olímpicos con 95 medallas olímpicas en una ciudad de 180.000 personas.
Esta es la ciudad de Split, donde tuve la suerte de nacer y vivir al mismo tiempo que @goranivanisevicofficial , @tonikukoc , Dino Rađa y Blanka Vlašić, por nombrar solo algunos de los 74 de nuestros compañeros locales que ganaron una o dos medallas olímpicas. Incluso me enseñaron a nadar nuestra medallista de oro olímpico Đurđica Bjedov. ¿Qué tan increíble es eso? ¿Cuáles son las posibilidades de tener tal concentración de excelencia global en un lugar pequeño? Puede estar seguro de que no lo lograron al contar con equipos de última generación. Oh no. Poco o ningún equipo, malas condiciones, poco apoyo financiero, desconocidos para el mundo, pero algo en su corazón y su mente. Son una prueba viviente de lo que un humano puede lograr con casi nada material que lo respalde. Mucha Voluntad, mucho Desafío, mucho Amor (de la familia, amigos y vecinos), mucha Practica y mucho Auto-confianza. Normalmente no pensaban en lo que es posible o no. Simplemente lo hicieron. Y esta ciudad loca les dijo que podían, los empujó y los provocó.
Supongo que mi actitud decidida viene de aquí. Es por eso que no te creo cuando me dices que algo no es posible. Tengo 74 medallistas olímpicos de mi ciudad natal demostrando lo contrario. - Ivan Bavcevic, 01.04.2019
¿Qué no estás dejando ir? ¿Qué te está cansando, agotando, matándote? ¿Qué situación, tarea, trabajo, relación, grupo, idea, obligación o sentido del deber? ¿Dónde te estás diciendo a ti mismo que no podrían manejar sin ti?
Solo pregúntate: "Si yo muriera ahora, ¿continuarían de alguna manera sin mí?" Ahora te pregunto: ¿necesitas morir para que continúen sin ti? ¿No es más fácil simplemente disculparse y dejarlos ser?
Te digo que todos preferirían verte feliz, sano y vivo que útil, ayudando y preocupado. - Ivan Bavcevic, 30.03.2019.
OUT OF THE ORDINARY.
I find it important to allow Life to keep putting me in places and situations where I am kept open, intrigued, youthful, wondering, surprised, inspired, provoked, questioning, flexible and transformed. Contemporary art museums tend to do all of that, just like the @pamm . You can’t really see too many of the art works as you would get exhausted and over saturated, and you really need to spend more time with a few pieces. Just looking, feeling, absorbing and then suddenly, maybe one little thing, will impact you.
You can’t continue visiting only the places where you ordinarily spend your time. That keeps your mind stuck, rigid, opinionated, comfortable and in control of you. You don’t want your mind to control you, that’s what it does to majority of people and just look where that has gotten us in this world. You actually want your mind to serve you and work for you, not against you. So, take it out of the ordinary, let it be exposed to the new and the incomprehensible. Art is perfect because it rarely uses the neocortex to speak to you, and that is how you evolve your brain. You start speaking to the limbic brain and to your body. - Ivan Bavcevic, 19.03.2019.
DEEP RESPECT AND LOVE.
The biggest reward for a teacher would be to see a student supersede all the potentials and expectations. At least that is how I see it and how @_jesuscarmona_cia made me feel this past week. He had it in himself, we all saw it in our own distinct way, and then he blew our minds off by going beyond anything we expected. The three times I saw the performance done in full I ended up crying, speechless and touched to the depth of my soul. Not many people are able to achieve that.
I feel reverence and gratitude to be able to work with Jesus on this piece exploring healthy masculinity, together with @anamariaalvarezct and @lulohouse. I feel different, as a man and as a human. For sure, my life will have this week as a marker of before and after. I was able to expose my own unhealthy behaviors and discover the full range and variety of male emotions that are suppressed and hidden. I have a new level of compassion for the men of our world, for the hidden vulnerability and a hurt heart. When I saw the audience profoundly touched, provoked and literally transformed, I saw the full value and impact a conscious work of art can have. Yes, we did it! Bravo to the team, bravo to @flamencofest and @adriennearshtcenter , and bravo to Jesus!
You have my love and reverence. - Ivan Bavcevic, 17.03.0219.
AFTERNOON MEDITATION BREAK.
We are not meant to be operating continuously during the day for 16 hours without stop. Even though the human body is a wonderful biological machine, it is not a mechanical thing. We are no robots.
We are meant to be having several breaks when the mind switches off, normally every 4-5 hours. It doesn’t have to be long, even a few minutes will do. You can sit comfortably in silence, close your eyes, observe the natural flow of breath in your nose and stay like that for some time. Your mind will reset and you will be refreshed. Usually 10-15 minutes will do the trick.
I’m doing it here at @parkcentralny in this classic cosy ambiance of midtown Manhattan.
Next time I need to organize some group work here in NYC. - Ivan Bavcevic, 08.03.2019.
SQUEEZED? NO NEED TO FEEL SMALL.
Even if giants squeeze you, even if life circumstances press you, even if you feel small relative to your neighbors, even if you seem insignificant relative to those soaring into heights, you are still the powerful and unique you.
Just like the little @russiantearoom building standing firm, strong and utterly famous between these two giants. Often the power lies in small containers. So don’t compare yourself to others. Their size does not matter. What matters is your value and what you signify and give to the world. Your uniqueness will save you and make you express your greatness.
I already see you great, because the One who created you does not make mistakes. Can you feel the power of the Source in your chest? - Ivan Bavcevic, 08.03.2019.
Another day and I’m landing there again after a year. Very happy to immerse myself into “The field of all possibility”. This is the place to break the mental limitations, to leave the victim hood behind, to realize that you can, to feel that everything is possible. Watch your dreams come true.
I encourage you to visit these places where the electromagnetic field of possibility and success vibrates high. You will not leave unchanged.
@new_york_city_centre and @joespub await us. This is Flamenco Festival @flamencofest at its best with @sarabaras and many others. Bravo @miguelangel_marin_benitez
LOVE IN THE MOMENT.
Could you accept that someone could love you in that instant, in that space, in that state, just like that? A stranger, unknown yesterday, unseen tomorrow, but present today. Not even a whole day, but just a minute, a second or two.
Would you believe that I could love you the moment my eyes meet your eyes, the moment I embrace you with my arms and heart, the moment my mouth whispers a word, the moment my silence penetrates your being? Would you interpret my complete absence of judgment or opinion towards you, as Love? Will you notice my full acceptance of how you are now and the freedom to be who you are?
I do not know how to love you yesterday for I do not live there. I do not know how to love you tomorrow for I am not certain I will live then. But I can accept you now, see you now, bless you now, respect you now, care for you now, in the only way I know, and that is with my full presence in the same and only space of now. There, we are no strangers. There, we are not two.
Can you love me the same? - Ivan Bavcevic, 02.03.2019.
FRUITS OF ACTION.
Are they really yours?
We were blessed these two days with around 200 people in our lectures and workshops with Crystal Taylor @livingcrystalclear in Granada. This city never ceases to support and participate in anything that brings liberation to human beings.
On the surface we are named successful. And it is true. But not by our own effort. It has been more than 20-25 years since I understood and accepted that it is not “I” who is doing anything. It is always the Intelligence of the Source that does everything. This body and mind both belong to that loving source of everything. The best thing I could do is to not be there. As I say to our friends and students of spirituality: Not by our own effort, but by grace.
If I am not the one doing, then I am not the one owning the fruits and consequences of actions. But I am cared for, watched after, supported and lead. The Source takes good care of It’s instruments.
When you surrender everything to the Source you are free. And when you surrender even your own self, there is liberation.
So, what attracts you more, the results of actions or to be truly free? - Ivan Bavcevic, 23.02.2019.
DO YOU SEE THE BEAUTY?
Sathyam, Shivam, Sundaram.
Truth, Goodness, Beauty.
The three aspects of the Divine.
I feel blessed and in awe by the beauty and goodness that the nature provides. It really is there to serve us in every way possible, literally not asking for anything. It’s beautiful beyond our imagination and for no reason in particular. It has nothing to gain, no one to impress or manipulate. It doesn’t earn on its own beauty and lets others earn on it.
It pushes me to reconsider things, to wonder about our ways of exchange. Are we as giving, as flowing, as sharing our beauty?
I’m speechless at the moment. I’ll just rest in the beauty of it. - Ivan Bavcevic, 16.02.2019.
Thousand thanks to every heart and soul present in the METAPHYSICS OF LIFE Retreat we just had in the beautiful @valamarhotels Sanfior in Rabac, Croatia.
During 4 days and 3 nights we absorbed in the metaphysical principles of living on Earth, understanding the laws of the Universe, letting go of personal control and identification and surrendering to the guidance of the Highest part of each human being. Metaphysics means that you draw the power from the Source of Creation and not from your limited human body-mind capacities. It means that you know you are not the doer, but the instrument. We teach how to let go, allow and surrender to the highest.
Everything is possible to me because everything is possible to God within me.
The power of God within me is greater than any obstacle before me. Therefore, I Surrender my life to the power of God that brings all the solutions, all the goodness, everything I need. - Ivan Bavcevic, 10.02.2019.
What an amazing service at Studio za njegu kose Sena. She is a wonderful host and hairdresser. And the chair where you sit to have your hair washed is actually an electric massage chair. Oh my god, massage of the back and the head at the same time. All at amazing prices in Zagreb, Ozaljska 74.
I don’t know what would be a spiritual message in this :) Maybe: “let life take care of you and pamper you beyond what you could imagine, even with little details.” #hairdresser#massagechair#sena#zagreb#service#amazingservice#ivanbava
INSPIRED BY EXAMPLE.
Thanks to dear brothers from @yogiville.croatia I was inspired by their example and lead to climb the Klek mountain, being washed by rain halfway up. I felt that with every step up, with every heartbeat and with every exhale I leave behind something no longer needed. I was releasing the unnecessary and old and inhaling deeply the fresh and the new.
Coming up to the mountain lodge at the foot of the peak, the views opened and the vertical drop in front of me was majestic and liberating. I took off my wet clothes and absorbed the beauty and freshness with my skin and the body. It was the joy of settling down and of a physical achievement.
For this first time up I didn’t finish the climb. The mountain lodge was overly inviting with its fireplace and hot tea :) Next time I need to do it like the Ice man apprentice David of @earth_wizardry and brother Sun. They climbed the mountain barefoot and topless. They are the third people telling me about @iceman_hof Method in the last 10 days! Well, gotta listen to the signs, they are so obvious!
I did start the free lessons on breathing and cold shower. Let’s see how that goes 😋😄. - Ivan Bavcevic, 04.02.2019.
THE POWER OF IMAGINATION.
Little warm summer imagination to break the winter coldness.
As a child or a teenager I realized that with my imagination alone I can achieve the impossible. I started with little things and saw they work. I would be in the terrible buses of the City of Split Public Transport, no air con, 35 Celsius outside, going to high school, literaly melting and marinating in my own sweat (let’s not talk about the smell of all the passengers together), and then I started saying to myself: “wow, I feel cool in here, even chilly 🥶! How come it is so pleasant and cool in this bus? Brrrr.... so cold.” And I saw that my body literally responded to those thoughts. I saw that “bitching” about sweat and heat made no benefit and no change of circumstances, but making myself believe in the opposite actually did. Yes, it felt like lying, but it worked. Not because I was lying, but because I was having a lot of fun and laughter and did not take things seriously and actually used the mind to create something.
I stared using this in other situation. I would pass my exams telling myself how good I was. I would have amazing trips and experiences. I saw that my mind has an extraordinary power. And I used it. I saw that it can and will create what you focus on and with what you fill it.
It was the beginning of having a lot of fun! It took me to America at the age of 17, put me through a private University that I had no ways of paying initially, becoming an assistant hotel director at the age of 22, opening my own business, doing all my dream jobs by the time I was 33, visiting 40 countries, meeting the Avatar of our age and working for him, meeting the Dalai Lama and many enlightened masters, and by now doing half a million kilometers in the service of the mankind.
Don’t believe my words. Look at my life, it is my message. At my workshops and retreats I have tons more to share.
In the mean time, let’s put some summer glasses and make the winter warm, at least in our hearts and minds. - Ivan Bavcevic, 21.01.2019.
The road to a magical place.
You are that road.
Your Heart is the magical mechanism.
The outer world is a demonstration of your inner magic and beauty.
Do you stop to admire it and enjoy it? Do you leave that for tomorrow or the next time? How can we be certain that there will be a tomorrow for this body and person?
Life has shown me that it likes the best when we show our gratitude by enjoying the goodness and the beauty it gives us and surrounds us. Life gets ecstatic when we stop our car to see and smell and touch it’s creation. Life creates all of it for the pleasure of creation. The more you marvel, the more you get dumbstruck and get tears of joy and inspiration in your eyes, the more you enjoy these beauties as a child would enjoy them, the more Life will demonstrate its magic, which is already all around you.
Your Heart holds the key to seeing magic. Let it marvel, let it wonder and let it enjoy. Life will give you more reasons for it.
Having beautiful memories of this summer PENCCA, which was one of the nicest retreats I ever conducted. It was a real dream come true! For many years I felt I would be working with artists from different fields to guide them in shedding whatever is blocking their most authentic expression on Earth and in reaching the depths of their beings so they could share those treasures with the world.
Art truly has a direct access to the heart. I feel that each artists, especially those in the performing arts, has a special opportunity and even responsibility for the level of awareness they are creating and putting the audiences into. Each of us can be a vessel for bringing more love, joy, understanding and peace into the world, or a vessel for more fear, anger, resentment and the loss of will for life. What do you choose to bring into this world?
I look forward to more artist residencies where we all learn and grow together. Where we experiment, dive deep into the crazy psyche, go through catarsis and finally into liberation from the conditionings of the mind. We actually go into acceptance and peace with ourselves. In that space we discover the art that we are.
Love you Pencca! Miss you all and can’t wait that we get together again. - Ivan Bavcevic, 18.01.2019
A cycle of birth, death and rebirth.
A river that disappears into the ground and becomes a subterranean river is something very usual in the Karst mountain regions of Croatia. River Dretulja springs out at the foot of Kapela mountain as a beautiful green transparent little lake and after some 10 kilometers dives into the ground in the Peace Valley only to spring back again behind another hill a few kilometers away as the river Mreznica.
What a beautiful metaphor for our earthly existence! It is the same water flowing, visible and then invisible, only to be given a different name when it resurfaces. So are we, the same energy and the same consciousness flowing through Life, sometimes in form and sometimes formless. Sometimes visible and sometimes invisible. Every time we become visible and take form, we are given a new name and identity. We have a new role to play, new culture to enjoy, new religion to believe, new skin color to wear, new gender to appreciate and new talents to develop. Yes my dear, you were already those that you resent, that frighten you, or that you envy for their fortune. You were already a fanatic member of the Catholic inquisition, a fanatic Islamic terrorist, a colonialist, a communist, a capitalist, a nun, a billionaire, an impoverished cripple, a prostitute, a saint, a mother and a father, a farmer and a movie star. Heck, even a porn star with enough sex experience to last you ten lifetimes! There is nothing you were not and nothing you will not be. It is all you, the same water, the same Consciousness, flowing and appearing and disappearing. I invite you to remember. Remember who you are and you will re-member with your other members. - Ivan Bavcevic, 16.01.2019.
Enlightenment is not separate from you. It is not something to be achieved or struggled for. It is actually not a personal achievement, it is who you really are. Also, it is something much more valuable than most people think and much easier than most imagine. It is easy because it is already true. In the spiritual awakening it is the Spirit waking up to its reality. The person which is just a character in the dream of the Spirit cannot wake up. Characters never wake up from the dream, they just disappear when the dream ends and the dreamer wakes up. Feel the light emerging from your body and the tip of your head. Just put your attention there, you might be surprised at your discovery.
- Ivan Bavcevic, 13.01.2019.
Our studio in the open for recording videos and meditations. What a blessing to be in the Peace Valley! Nature just gives and gives beyond what we could recreate artificially. I am so happy and grateful that we can give it forward to hundreds and thousands of people in all the countries where we work and in three different languages directly without translation (Croatian, Spanish and English). We are open to all the people of good Will who want to participate in this mission of global awakening, as we are in need of many expertise. It’s just easier with a good team! Why would otherwise the Source create so many of us!
- Ivan Bavcevic, 12.01.2019.
Are you trying very hard to be a good person? Have you been improving on your personality for long time?
When we are unaware of our eternal non-physical reality, we tend to identify with our temporary existence related to the body-mind system and exhibited as our character/person. Person in reality does not exist. It is just a thought, a belief about who you are. It is a very narrow belief, negating the majority of your being. The person is not born with the body. The body comes without a name or surname. A few days after birth the parents go to the government office to register the child and officially the person is made, being given a national identification number together with the name and surname. The baby has no idea that there is a person, nor that there is a name nor the number. The baby simply lives as pure beingness. A few years down the road the baby accepts the name and starts developing the person. It tries to be a good person, honest, sincere, truthful, hardworking, loving and faithful. It is a very hard work! It does not succeed and goes to therapies. Even goes to see Ivan Bavcevic and attend healing sessions. And then comes a surprise! In the healing session this man or a woman finds out that they are not this person they are trying to fix. They have falsely identified themselves with something temporary. They learn to start identifying with their eternal reality. Then starts the true spiritual awakening, which can’t easily be explained here in words 😄.
Thanks to Eastsiders tv series for the wonderful dialogues they offer, beyond what we are used to in mainstream media. - Ivan Bavcevic, 10.01.2019.
Magic is all around. Just open your perception and see it. Sometimes you don’t even need to go out! But if you do, honor the Nature with your presence and your senses fully aware of the wonder that it offers. Please, talk less, immerse yourself more. Listen, smell, touch, see and feel. Breath in the air and the beauty. Let the tears flow out. Let the emotion come out. Let Life enjoy itself.
We are so blessed at the Peace Valley with natural beauty, with water, forests, animals and plants. We honor it with our daily wonder and gratitude. Life is the happiest when we give it gratitude by enjoying in what it offers. Find a way to enjoy what you’re given. Life will respond in abundance.

Today in the Peace Valley we constructed our first community facility - The Tamazcal (known as Sweat lodge in English, or Znojnica as we funnily call it here). It took two-and-half days to build it from scratch. We went to pick the timber, made the skeleton, recicled construction blankets, recicled a huge inflatable swimming pool that was damaged and out of service, recicled parts of the trampoline that was destroyed in a storm two weeks ago, and recicled old clay bricks for centerpiece for hot stones.
It was amazing! And this evening we had the first tamazcal ceremony with a group of 12 people. We were blessed by a drummer friend who showed up in the perfect moment to guide the rhythm.
This Tamazcal is the showcase of true teamwork, combination of different expertises, and of blessing of the Universe. Early this morning the construction was not finished and it was left yesterday at nightfall in the very delicate moment. We had the blankets put on the cupola, but no waterproof cover. When we woke up it started snowing and it was very gray skies. I said: “come on! We need clear skies and warm day to finish.” In 15 minutes it stopped snowing. By the time we ate the breakfast and finished the morning spiritual program the sky completely cleared. There were almost no clouds and it was so warm that we worked without jackets or glows. It stayed like that for the next 4 hours that we needed to finish the work. When the last piece was put to place it stared snowing again with strong wind. What a perfection of the timing. I’m totally in love with the Divine Organizer. That is how it is when you practice Surrender and Allowing. It just works.
- Ivan Bavcevic, 02.01.2019.
It is good to learn that physical action is the last step of material manifestation. You are primarily a non-physical eternal being. Then you are an energy physical being. Lastly you are a material physical being. Those should be the steps of your actions in this world. Firstly, make sure to align your mind with the Source of your existence. Identify yourself with the highest Consciousness that you are. Secondly, focus your intention and your mind, imagine and then feel the reality of the result you seek. Lastly, do the work that is necessary to be done. Work comes last.
If I could summarize the divine manifestation in this world it would be: Be conscious of your self, imagine, speak it and sing it, breath it and feel it, plan it and organize it, put your passion and emotion into it, and then do it!
That is what we have done here in the Peace Valley on the New Year morning. The whole group has used their bodies and minds to align with the highest truth of their reality and to open to the abundance of the Divine Source that comes to us directly and through our Sun. We were blessed with a beautiful warm sunny day. - Ivan Bavcevic, 01.01.2019.
The Universal Artist works every day and night creating unimaginable wonders for the pleasure of its creations, for the pleasure of us people. The ice structures on thousands of these plants in Peace Valley gets created each night, only to disappear with the warmth of the Sun during the day. Every night and day, the art gets made and destroyed. Would you be willing to be like the Nature itself? Would you be willing to give yourself into something, to create and to build, to express and show, only to see it disappear and to do it over and over again? With the same joy and enthusiasm?

REALITY AND REFLECTION
This Christmas night in Split was almost perfect to show the duality of the world. One part is real and one is a reflection. It’s a play of light, of colors and vibrations. The Mind is like water. It can reflect or it can distort. But it can never be the Reality. If the mind is calm enough, like the surface of the sea, it will come more closely to truly reflecting the reality behind. If it is disturbed, full of thoughts like the waves on the sea, then it will show a distorted image of something it is reflecting. Human mind these days mostly distorts. You can calm if down, you can breath and relax and come closer. But still, your mind will never be able to show anything more than an image and a reflection. Your mind will never be the Reality it is trying to conceive. For that, you will need to let it go and drop it.
