About Braco's Silent Gaze
When attending a live-gazing session, a potential interaction takes place between Braco and his visitors, which has been reported to better many people's lives. Countless visitors, including doctors and scientists, have called Braco's gift "extraordinary". Since 1998, over 90 documentary films have been produced in Europe and the U.S. to detail personal accounts of transformation that have resulted from Braco's loving gaze.
Harmonizing body, mind and spirit, Braco's gift is viewed by many as being profoundly uplifting to individuals and communities wishing for change and presenting them a new foundation for peace and unity.
Braco is no guru or religious leader. He has no philosophy or dogma nor wants any to worship him. In fact, well-known leaders around the world applaud Braco and his aid to all, no matter creed, race, social strata or ideology. His sole purpose is sharing his gift with the people, wherever he is invited.
Braco wraps up his U.S. Fall tour with a public event in New York City taking place Saturday, November 17 and Sunday, November 18 at the New Yorker Hotel, 481 Eighth Avenue (at 34th St.), New York City.
