The name The W.A.Y. within stands for Who Are You within? And as I started to ask myself this very question and dive deeper I started an incredible journey of self discovery.

My name is Giovanni Hermann Anthony Bartolomeo (you can call me G for short). Sometimes I’ll go by Herman Anthony or Hermann others just G.

I Created this show in order to share my own experiences along with many other interesting peoples stories whose experiences have inspired me along the way with the intention of helping others to find out who they are within themselves!

I’m the host of the Way Within show (, Collective-Evolution's Podcast and Founder of The Ideal Changes and Co-Founder of Luminous Consciousness advancement centre.

A bit more about me:

After reaching what I thought was a certain level of success in life I realized I had never defined success in terms of what it meant to me. After feeling unfulfilled, confused and borderline depressed I realized I had to have some other 'purpose' being on this earth at this time.

After a ton of personal soul searching, exploration and self reflection, the fog finally started to clear and my mission took focus. Around the same time I met the team at Collective Evolution and the rest is History!

Now we're doing our part every day to raise consciousness (including our own). I've had a passion for connecting with others and learning from their experiences and now I can share it all with you through our show, our live events in Toronto, and our Consciousness Advancement Centre.

I'm an entrepreneur at heart and love creating new Ideas and ways to help improve the planet for not only the people currently living on it but for those who we will leave it to one day! connect with me via email

One love, keep shining that light within!

-Hermann Anthony (G)

Ep.5 Journeys Into the Heart with Daniel Mitel

On episode 5 I got to sit down with one of my first spiritual Mentors Daniel Mitel. We got to talk a bit about his new book Journeys into to heart and he also tells us a bit about his back story how he used to be the COO of LG Romania and how he found himself about to die in the mountains in near Tibet, about to die and was saved by a group of Buddhist yogis.

Sit back, relax and Enjoy!

About Daniel Mitel:
Daniel is a world traveler Master helping people understand their intimate connection to their Inner Selves. He is the first person in the world (in modern times) to explain and define the origin of the ancient Heart Imagery system. Heart Imagery, the ancient system that originates from ancient Tibetan, Sumerian and Vedic spiritual mystery schools, relates to the highest number of Mystery School: 555. It is related with Adamic Race, with the power of dreaming and reversing the past, present and future. Daniel started to teach Zen Meditation in 1981 and between 1981 and 1992 he was doing “the spinal breathing” meditation; later he found out that, in fact, he did practice the Kriya Pranayama of Kriya Yoga Great Master Babaji.
Since 1996, he is teaching worldwide Heart Imagery workshops. In 1991, Daniel start meditating with Romanian mystic Lady Ana who connected him with “The School of The Heart”, the school created thousands of years ago by the Masters who understood that the only way to remember who we really are is to reconnect with the energy of the heart. After couple of years spent in meditation in North of Tibet, in 1999, Daniel created “The School of the Heart”. Ten years later, in Toronto, he created “The School of Meditation”. Daniel is teaching also three very important workshops: “Kriya Yoga (The Spinal Breathing)”, “The Power of The Heart and Inner Healing” and “Journeys Into The Heart”.

International lecturer and Martial Arts Master (Tai Chi Master and Karate Traditional Black Belt 5 DAN in WJKA – World Japan Karate Association), Daniel is dedicated to inspiring the world to move from violence to peace and from anger to love. Throughout his work, workshops and spiritual conferences, Daniel changed the life of thousands of people. Prior and after Tibetan Great Masters, Daniel worked with a group of well known Masters from different schools of meditation (Osho, Dalai Lama, Kriya Yoga Great Masters, Lady Ana, Di Yu Ming, Drunvalo Melchizedek, Anastasia) who train their students to be in the Heart. Now, together with his own workshops, Daniel Mitel is bringing Awakening The Illuminated Heart workshop out to the world. By teaching all these spiritual seminars, Daniel is sharing a message of hope and possibility to anyone who wants to experience a new understanding of life; an understanding which comes from the heart.

Drunvalo Melchizedek appointed Daniel in the first Council of School of Remembering: Awakening The Illuminated Heart (ATIH) Teacher’s Council. As a Mentor of Drunvalo Melchizedek’ School of Remembering, Daniel was helping and teaching ATIH teachers from all over the world. Daniel is blessed to work with children, teaching them Tai Chi and Meditation. As visiting teacher in Montessori Schools, Daniel changed the life of hundreds of children through his work. He has an extensive academic background: B.Sc. in Computer Engineering, B.Econ. (Hons.), Diploma in Management and MBA from Open University Business School, UK.
special-project-my-web-bannerAs co-founder of Motivate Yourself organization, and as GCI (Global Coherence Initiative) Ambassador in HeartMath Institute, Daniel is actively teaching in companies all over the world. The project “Beyond The Limits” together with Bertrand Piccard, UN Environmental Programme Goodwill Ambassador, Chairman and Pilot of SOLAR IMPULSE, represents a step forward in helping the humanity to go towards a cleaner environment, a better world, a better future.

Interviewed all over the world and constantly invited to write articles in magazines and on-line publications (Spirit of Ma’at, Collective Evolution, Lilou Mace, OMTimes, etc.) Daniel is one of the most prominent Master of Meditations known worldwide. He is showing the inner power what you can achieve using your Heart’s unconditional love.

Daniel’s books “This Now Is Eternity” and “Heart Imagery: A Path To Enlightenment” are highly regarded as some of the best meditation and spiritual guide books all over the world. His new book, “Journeys Into The Heart”, was written together with one of the most influential spiritual personality of modern time, Drunvalo Melchizedek. “Journeys Into The Heart” was triggered by Drunvalo’s and his own personal search for the best methods and meditations of creating from the heart. It is not a simple book. It is a manual of spiritual seekers.
