Jorge Lopez-Doriga is Chief Sustainability Officer for AMARUMAYU -- a movement born in the heart of the Amazon jungle, to protect its precious forest and empower its guardians through the commercialization of Amazonian super fruit juices.
Jorge is also a Member of the America's Council of Conservation International, and Ambassador for the Gross National Happiness (GNH) of Bhutan.
The Spanish native has lived on four continents and has worked in senior marketing positions for Buena Vista (Disney) and BMG (now Sony BMG).
A Zen practitioner for over 30 years, Jorge received transmission as Zen Master in 2014 and teaches at the Zen River Monastery in Holland and the White Plum Asanga in the US.
On this episode, Jorge shares his one way ticket to the present moment and stresses the importance of living in the here and now and of being “present”, even during challenging times. Jorge also shares with us the exciting project that is AMARUMAYU – a new line of immunity-boosting super fruit juices made from exotic super fruits harvested by indigenous communities in Peru’s Amazon rainforest, using sustainable harvesting practices. Jorge points out why it’s essential to protect the Amazon rainforest, and how what goes on there, impacts the rest of the world.
