Ivan Bava is an awakened master of non-duality, allowing and surrendering to the Flow of Life. He is a graduate of the University of Metaphysics and a disciple of Sathya Sai Baba. He was born in Croatia and initially graduated in management from the Rochester Institute of Technology to become an international lecturer, therapist, and life sciences teacher with his School of Awareness and Spiritual Mastery established in Spain, Slovenia, and Croatia. He holds his programs directly in Spanish, English, and Croatian, giving people access to the most current life and spiritual knowledge in their mother tongue. He is also a regular guest speaker at the Department of Consciousness of the University of Granada, the oldest and largest university in Spain, and other schools and colleges in Europe. Every month he teaches hundreds of students and public audiences practical disciplines for a conscious and advanced life as a master over their own mind, emotions, and body. He is a frequent guest on various radio and TV shows.
From 2011 till 2020, Ivan Bava has traveled more than half a million kilometers and has given more than seven thousand hours of lectures, workshops, and healing sessions. In his work with tens of thousands of people, he has seen there is a huge inner struggle and lack of acceptance of oneself, so he uses his ALO Method (Allow, Let Go, Surrender) to give people the possibility for liberation from the conditioning of the past, traumas, resentments, and emotional and mental states. With this method, people are invited to hand over the resolution of their problems to the Source of Creation as the highest Intelligence of the Universe, which knows everything and can do everything.
Several times a year, he is invited to guide artist residencies in the most prestigious theaters, opera houses, and concert halls of the world. He helps world-renowned dancers, musicians, and singers reach the essence of their existence and perform from the point of pure consciousness. With this work, Ivan indirectly reaches tens of thousands of people who watch those shows. So far, he has worked in Sadler’s Wells in London, which is the birthplace of Royal Ballet, the New York City Center in Manhattan, Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts in Miami, and with award-winning artists from the New York City Ballet, Spanish National Ballet, Carnegie Hall, and Jazz at Lincoln Center.
Ivan is the author of the book Inner Compass, which is a source of guidance and direction for every-day situations and challenges, giving short practical answers and practices established in spiritual truths and wisdom applicable to the contemporary world. It is as if having a spiritual master or life-coach with you to answer your questions and doubts. This book guides you back to the knowledge hidden within you and reminds you of your true power and reality. The book was published in three languages in Croatia, Slovenia, and the United States.
He primarily lives in the Peace Valley, a holistic permaculture spiritual community he established in central Croatia. Peace Valley serves as a therapeutic, farming, meditation, and healing center surrounded by rivers, lakes, and pristine forests full of wildlife. The rest of the time, Ivan spends in Spain and other European countries.
