Marc Torra

Marc comes from Urus, a community in the Pyrenees, the land of the Cathars. The name Urus is of Indo-European origin and it means ‘a place where the water springs’. He went abroad in 1995 after graduating in Economics from the university of Barcelona, and since then has lived and worked a little in every continent. Through living in other countries, Marc has associated with many different cultures and ways of thinking; especially with those he calls ‘earth people’. From them he has learned a different way of reasoning, and discovered that the future of the planet depends on our ability to learn what such cultures have to offer.

As an author he writes about spirituality and new tendencies, developing and intermingling genres, making use of both narrative and essay writing. He is qualified in the tradition of Satyananda yoga, and tries to understand and experience things for himself in order to build bridges, both to unify different cultures and spiritual traditions across the globe, and to lead us into the future.
