Who is Dr. Corvalan?

An image of Dr. Jaime G. Corvalan, MD, FACSThrough the many journeys of his life, from his formative years, through his lifelong career as a doctor and healer, to his sweeping search for meaning and transcendence in life, Dr. Jaime G. Corvalan, MD, has energized innumerable individuals to live healthy, meaningful lives. Ask the doctor where he’s from and he’s happy to tell you, “I’m a citizen of the Earth.” The doctor sees all people as one, and feels that we are all on a journey of discovering meaning and a higher purpose in life; in fact, we’re here to take the greatest journey of all, the journey of our true selves, our souls.

Dr. Corvalan’s work reflects a life both steeped in the world of intellect (as an extremely well-known Urologic Surgeon, former UCLA Clinical Professor of Surgery, and alumnus of the Cleveland Clinic) and in the world of metaphors and language of the soul (through his extensive interests in Jungian psychology, symbolism, mythology, history, art, and classic literature).

I have been truly blessed in my life, and, as I enter the second half of my life, it is important to me that I share those blessings with others,” says the doctor. “I’ve come to realize that the most vital thing for us to understand is the importance of consciousness – everything is consciousness.

When we consider the entirety of human history – and, indeed, of the unfolding of the universe – the evolution of our awareness, of our recognition of consciousness, is at the heart of all that we’ve experienced, good and bad. My abiding hope and intention is to help to grow consciousness, in myself and within everyone, so that we can move to a place where we all operate from our hearts, from our most authentic selves – our souls.”
