|Teo Alfero is an Associate Tensegrity® Instructor and the Founder and Director of Wolf Connection Conservancy. Born and raised in Argentina, Teo attended military school and then worked as a mountaineering instructor in the Andes Mountains before moving to Los Angeles in 1999. In the Andes, a friend handed him a book by Carlos Castaneda and a video on Tensegrity and the rest, he says, is history. “It was as if a part of my being that was longing to wake up was finally liberated. I could feel a jolt through my body with every paragraph, and energy moving around and through me with every magical pass… It was like nothing I’ve experienced before, I had found my life-long practice and inner home.” He moved to Los Angeles and began attending Tensegrity® practice groups and events regularly. He joined the team of Tensegrity® facilitators in 2003 and has also helped to lead joint events given by Cleargreen and Wolf Connection. As a result of his Tensegrity® practice and the search for his path with heart, he started to embrace the legacy of his family’s lineage of educators and developed a passion to be of service to others, particularly young people in need of mentoring and guidance. He has been a children’s Court Advocate with the CASA program and is a registered foster father, a trainer for the Safe School Ambassadors program, and a certified life coach and mentor for adolescents and young adults. In 2008 he founded Spring of Evolution, Inc., a non-profit initiative, with Wolf Connection’s youth education and empowerment program as its centerpiece.|
