Ramon serves as an assistant professor of Interdisciplinary Studies at Naropa University. His scholarly, contemplative, creative and community interests range from rites of passage and initiation, dance and embodiment, creative ceremony, food and environmental justice, restorative and transformative justice, counter-cultural histories, pre/post modern cosmologies, Afrofuturism and collective liberation.
A lifelong resident of Colorado, Ramon is a young-old married guy, father of three spirited youth, a lover of rain, weather, stars and all things that foster beauty, intelligence and wisdom. His pedagogy centers awakening and strengthening the innate genius in each student. He believes that each person has a “golden thread” to help through the labyrinth of life. Through and beyond disciplines, his work as an educator is to help others become familiar with and follow those threads.
This is where experiential learning meets academic rigor. Where you challenge your intellect and uncover your potential. Where you discover the work you’re moved to do—then use it to transform our world.
