Who We Are

In the local dialect of the native Mapuche people, Aluantu means ‘bright shining sun’.

At Aluantu we are dedicated to freedom, connection, inner peace and harmony.

Get to know our facilitators who are here to help you discover and shine your inner Aluantu:

Gregory W. Locke
Gregory W. LockeFounder
Greg, our personal development coach, received his formal education in Communication and Social Design in Europe and the United States. After traveling extensively on a lifelong quest for meaning and truth, Greg had the realization that all life is interconnected. Our real journey occurs within us, when we open our hearts and allow Spirit to flow through. We embody our highest expression of spirit through our acts of service to others.

Focused and dedicated for the last 7 years, Greg is inspired to share his process of awakening and transformation with others and has created a program called ‘Tapestries’. Tapestries focuses on the transition from an ego-driven experience to a present, heart-centered experience. Greg’s warm-hearted and direct approach to inner transformation make his self-discovery workshops powerful, memorable and fun!
