Cruz has been on his own personal growth journey for more than 40 years which inspired him to develop specific practices designed to help create impactful, lasting change.

Cruz is a published author with a book titled “Finding the Origination Point, Understanding Our Biases to Create a More Peaceful World”.

Cruz’s book supports people in working through blame, shame, and judgment through an acceptance of our shared humanity. By using self-awareness to normalize the bias conversation, we increase our understanding of the experiential and emotional origination point and narratives of personal bias. The origination point of our biases is the point of understanding and healing. Normalizing bias conversations allows us to talk about how our past experiences play a role in our personal interactions. Cruz uses the processes in Finding the Origination Point conversations to talk about personal influence, the power of narratives and daily practices to disrupt life patterns that no longer serve us.
