Emilio Mercuriali

MeditationMandali Experience Teacher
Emilio Mercuriali is a visionary leader in the field of self-discovery and personal growth. As the founder of Diamond Logos Turkey, he has dedicated his life to guiding individuals on a transformative journey of self-inquiry and inner exploration. Specializing in the Essence work and the Enneagram, Emilio's retreats offer a unique blend of ancient spiritual wisdom and modern psychology.

At just 17 years old, Emilio was struck by the power of spiritual teachings and embarked on a journey that would take him to the depths of India, immersing himself in the study of self-inquiry, ego-psychology, and interpersonal growth development.

From 1996-2006, Emilio participated in "Path of Love" training and served as a facilitator. In 2003-2004, he completed training in Trauma Resolution and Somatic experiencing with Diane Poole. In 2005, he studied at the New School of Psychotherapy and Counselling in London.

For over 20 years, Emilio has been a student and friend of Faisal Muqaddam, spiritual teacher and the founder of Diamond Logos Teachings. Today, he is one of the senior teachers of this school, and his deep understanding of how ego psychology and spiritual systems can be integrated is evident in his work.

Based in Istanbul, Turkey since 2010, Emilio's teachings and workshops are centered around the idea of integrating spiritual experiences or Essential Qualities into daily life. He believes that teaching is his practice and that it is a privilege to be the messenger of the possibility of being free within life. His sessions and workshops are based on his clear view of life and how to support individuals in their quest for personal freedom.
