For The Curious - Who is Sol?
I AM Sol Santos, and my life has been an epic, storied voyage - full of unexpected twists, turns, peaks, and valleys.
Born in the sprawling metropolis of Sao Paulo, Brazil, I was abandoned as a toddler and left to fend for myself in a harsh orphanage. Though my early years were steeped in fear and deprivation, they lit a fire in me to survive and overcome. At the age of 6, through an almost miraculous turn of events, I was adopted by a loving family in Fargo, North Dakota.
The drastic change from tropical Brazil to the frozen tundra of North Dakota was an enormous culture shock. School was challenging, but I discovered my love of sports and theater, and immersed myself in church activities.
However, underneath the surface, I struggled with my identity and traumatic early childhood experiences. The volatility at home took its toll, and at 17, I was sent to a boarding school where I eventually completed my education. Surrounded by kids with troubled pasts, I learned resilience and independence unlike ever before.
When I graduated, the path ahead split in opposing directions, and I took the road less traveled - dropping out of Bible college to work odd jobs and getting pulled into the seductive underworld of drugs, crime, and instability.
My 20s and 30s were lost in a haze as I searched for purpose, bouncing between vices, dead-ends, and stints behind bars. But every valley brings a peak. And through it all, my grit and determination to overcome misfortune pushed me forward.
Now in my 40s, I feel gratitude for the eclectic experiences that grew my empathy and wisdom. I'm driven by a passion to understand human nature and spirituality on the deepest levels. The transformations I was able to make, due to my deep dive into modern science and ancient teachings, were what played a huge role in the culmination of The Science of Spirituality; along with my wife’s life experiences and completion of graduate school in psychology. We have been able to guide people through their own transformations and offer the same knowledge to whomever is searching!
We have a unique perspective based on our unique experiences that offers an approach which harnesses modern science and ancient teachings as an effective means to your desired transformation.
