About Javier Lantero Rózpide

Now retired, I was Cofounder of Fundación Tomillo ( and have served as its President since its inception in 1984. My studies were in Economics and Psychology. Management has been my main field of activity.

I am interested in spiritual questions that concern right living and transcendence. I am the author of a small book entitled “An Image of the Human Being, the search of a lifetime” (available only in Spanish).

I am especially interested in Christian contemplative spirituality. Specifically, I am best acquainted with and feel connected to the World Community for Christian Meditation, sharing its emphasis in the practice of meditation.
