Francisco J Tovar (Certified Life Coach)

Francisco Tovar is a certified life coach, practitioner, holistic therapist, reiki master, and Family Constellations Facilitator. He has received training from reputable institutions such as the Modern Academy of Applied Psychology (ACHOLOGY), Bnei Baruch Kabbalah Education & Research Institute, and the International Institute of Holistic Development (IIHD).

Combining his academic preparation and spiritual training, Francisco has developed an eclectic and unique approach to life called PRAGMATIC HUMANISM©. This approach integrates both material reality and the spiritual world, aiming to find purpose and solutions to life's demands. Francisco believes that the family, the State, and corporations are the three fundamental actors in society, whose interactions shape the destiny of humanity.

Francisco's professional journey includes being a part of the hosting team for the radio show "Gente Exitosa" (Successful People) on Radio Tiempo 1200 AM in Caracas, Venezuela. He later went on to host his own program, "Semillas de Cambio" (Seeds of Change), where he promoted the foundations of his signature approach, PRAGMATIC HUMANISM©.

Currently, through the International Institute of Holistic Development (IIHD), Francisco continues to promote the principles of PRAGMATIC HUMANISM©. He offers talks, dissertations, and training courses tailored for individuals, government entities, and corporations.


Francisco considers these three pillars of modern society crucial in implementing his vision for a holistic and purpose-driven approach to life.
