Jose Hernandez was an electrical engineer for most of his life with no background or pedigree in art. After a near-death experience in January 2000, and a long, difficult physical recovery, his life path changed dramatically. In 2004 Jose began creating art as a meditative tool. His work has now exhibited in galleries across the US and hangs in private and corporate collections worldwide and in permanent installations in the Prestigious Cleveland Clinic collection, the Nicklaus Children’s Dan Marino Outpatient Centre in Florida, and other healing centres across the US and Canada. His art forms the basis for the breakthrough modality, “Inner Immersion,” which includes a series of transformational processes, meditations and teachings. Jose has also co-founded Immersive Arts, LLP a collaborative of art and design professionals to offer centering, calming experiences in institutional and corporate settings. Immersive Arts is currently undertaking a large project with the Penticton Regional Hospital in British Columbia to create calming, comforting and healing experiences for patients, families and staff while providing the platform for deeper quantitative research into art’s impact on health outcomes. Jose lives in British Columbia. He travels regularly to speak on his near death experience. A profile of Jose’s experience and work is featured in the Netflix Docu-series, Surviving Death, scheduled for release worldwide early 2021. Find him online at: www.innerimmersion.com.
