Self-knowledge & Life: An interview with Katia Condos y Muss Hernández


Today we bring you a fascinating interview. In it, we have the opportunity to learn about the value of self-knowledge for personal growth through the experience of two close friends: the Peruvian film, theater, and television actress Katia Condos and the artist and spiritual coach Muss Hernandez.

What is self-knowledge?

But… What is self-knowledge? According to the Oxford Dictionary, it is: “Knowledge of oneself that comes after recognizing oneself as an individual person with particular qualities.” In this interview, Katia Condos tells us how she built a fuller life thanks to the accompaniment of her coach and friend, Muss Hernandez, who urges us to use tools to look at ourselves and recognize who we are.

Caminos: An inspiring and practical book.

Katia and Muss have written a book entitled Caminos, which consists of two parts. In the first part, The Path to Me or “El Camino Hacia Mí,” Katia tells her story, the stages she went through, and how her life changed thanks to the process, she followed with Muss. In the second part, Muss reveals the method they followed and guides us so that we can apply it to our own lives. The technique that Muss proposes in her book is designed so everyone can do it independently. Of course, it can also be done in a group, with friends, or with a coach like herself. You can see the lessons she teaches through Lúmina, the organization she founded, HERE.
