Arica Way of the Heart
The Arica School was founded in 1968 by Oscar Ichazo as a School of Knowledge. This type of school has been in
existence since ancient times, from the Greek Schools to the schools of the Hindu, Buddhist, and Sufi traditions.
As in all schools of knowledge, the Arica School provides a method of enlightenment. What makes the Arica School
different from the ancient schools is that it provides a contemporary method of enlightenment, employing biology, psychology
and physics in order to clarify human consciousness with modern knowledge, producing freedom and liberation.
The knowledge that the Arica School teaches, called the "Protoanalytical Theory, System and Method", was originated by Oscar Ichazo. Protoanalysis is the analysis of the complete human being, from the lowest aspects of the human process, progressing systematically to the Higher States of Consciousness where enlightenment can be attained. The Arica School provides a clearly defined map of the human psyche in order that each of us can discover the basis of our ego process and transcend this process into the Higher State of Consciousness that is found in and available to each of us. This state of being is our True Essential Self, experienced as an internal state of great happiness, Light and liberation.
