Rodrigo de la Sotta, Director of Health
Rodrigo de la Sotta (Master of Arts in Theology, Institute for Spiritual Formation, Talbot Seminary) is the Director of Health for Cyclical LA. As a Coach and Spiritual Director, his passion is to help others explore how theological reflection and psychological development can have a meaningful conversation and how sacred space can be discovered in all things. He considers Chico his hometown, though his roots will always be found in his native land of Chile. He's an unashamed vinyl junkie, mediocre bourbon aficionado, and borderline hoarder of thrift store treasures.
