Ash Ruiz was raised around the globe, traveling as a member of the Latin teen-sensation, Menudo. At 16 he traveled to Machu Picchu for a video shoot. When he stepped off the helicopter and touched the ground, everything disappeared. There was no Ash Ruiz, no Machu Picchu, no llama, no Peru, no Earth or Universe. All that was present was the ordinary radiance of clear, all-pervading awareness and unconditional love. The inspired mainstream music he began writing from that moment and his all embracing presence would eventually be featured on ABC Good Morning America, at the United Nations, on countless stages and retreat centers with the greatest spiritual leaders of our time and before many hearts across the globe.
