Who we are


The group of students who had the privilege to learn from Dr. Pethö Sándor intends to continue and develop his work since his passing in 1992. Subgroups dedicated to courses, studying, research and the elaboration of various texts were formed; they also continue with the meditations we received from the professor.

Our group’s goal is to disseminate and expand the knowledge concerning Calatonia, which is in fact a path to self-development and a contribution to the collective journey towards the expansion of conscience of all mankind. Our role in this moment of deep crisis and transformation of the human being is to contribute with our small work quota and energy within the global process.

The purpose is to develop the received works and concepts through a creative approach within their original goal and direction. In this movement, our work in Brazil has expanded to the conduction of courses and workshops abroad, materializing some results that we present in this website and intend to keep enhancing and deepening.
