Here’s me in 10 seconds…
Hi I’m Gabriel Gonsalves. My friends call me Gabs.
I’m fascinated with Heart Intelligence as a path for personal development and spiritual growth. Particularly, I’m interested in its application in the areas of leadership development and coaching. I love seeing people’s lives transform.
I’m a high-achiever introvert who is also a conversational and creative truth guide. This means I enjoy my solitude, but constantly seek opportunities to express my creativity and share what I’ve learned with others through deep, powerful conversations.
Venezuelan native, I grew up in the United States. I now live in Cape Town.
Deeply happy and chilled. It takes a lot to anger me. I prefer the simple, rustic life near beaches, mountains and horses. My top three values in life are love, creativity and freedom.
My favorite book is The Alchemist. My favorite movie, Cinema Paradiso. My favorite song, The Rose. My favorite fable, The Lion and the Sheep.
If you’re interested in working together, or just curious about what I’m up to these days, here’s what I’m doing now.
Official Bragging Bio
Gabriel rode horses competitively for 9 years. Two highlights include training with the Canadian Olympic Dressage team in 1986 and riding Dr. Joseph Neckerman’s Grand Prix horse Little Joe, and learning the principles of Centered Riding with Sally Swift.
Trained and worked as a professional actor in Venezuela, where between 1992 and 2001 he played leading and supportive roles in several film, television and theater productions. He most brags about having touched people’s hearts when he produced and starred in The Sum of Us to sold-out audiences in Caracas.
Built his dream home with adobe bricks on top of a mountain. He brags about it because when he acquired the land there was no water, electricity, roads, or people to help him. Even the wind and fires seemed to be against him.
While living in Los Angeles and working for Sony Pictures, Gabriel wrote and produced the television pilot I Love Lucas. But according to him, his biggest accomplishment was being directed by Steven Spielberg when he played a scientist in the opening scene of A.I.
Moved to South Africa in 2008 where he volunteered at a non-profit organization for 3 years and founded Agape, a New Thought spiritual community. It was there, while counseling hundreds of people that he discovered The Path of the Heart. Over time, his ministry evolved into Heart’n Mind Consulting, Integral Living Solutions, Coaching and Training.
What I don’t want you to know about me
I’ve been afraid for most of my life. When I was 5, I hid in a bathroom during a school play because I was terrified of coming on to the stage and being laughed at. When I was 7, I would pretend to be sick just so that I wouldn’t have to go horse back riding because I was afraid of falling and getting hurt.
When I was 10, I overheard my father tell a friend that he was worried about me because “Gabriel didn’t have a personality.” For years, I did all I could to have a personality my father would be proud of. And I lost myself along the way, often feeling like a stranger in a strange land, looking for love in all the wrong places.
Each time I reach a new level of success, I immediately begin to judge and criticize myself by thinking it wasn’t good enough. I often worry about what other people think about me, comparing myself to others, and feeling like I’m not enough. I’m afraid to ask for what I really want, afraid others will say no. I’m afraid to ask for help even when I crave it the most. I struggle making new friends.
Sometimes I’m afraid that people will think I’m a fraud. “Who am I to be calling myself a coach, a leader, or an expert at anything?” For years I kept waiting for someone to qualify me or give me some kind of accreditation. Even when I got one, I still didn’t feel worthy.
At 47 and after all my accomplishments, I often feel I haven’t achieved much. Fear visits me every day. I’m afraid to grow old, lose my hair, getting fat, having no money, getting sick, never meeting my soulmate. I’m afraid that I’ll die with so many ideas, movies, projects and songs still inside of me.
I’ve learned that behind each one of my fears there is always a DESIRE. So, fear has become my compass, my path, my friend. Ask yourself, what scares you the most? and I’ll tell you where your biggest desire lies.
This is what The Path of the Heart is ultimately all about… loving yourself enough to courageously go after 100% of what you believe in your mind, and know in your heart is possible. It is path of courage, that rage you feel in your heart when you are afraid to do something, but do it anyway.
