Daniel Hirtz - The FUSION Foundation


Daniel Hirtz The FUSION Foundation

Daniel's path has lead him on a wonderful journey that crossed several continents.  Daniel Hirtz is originally from Germany where he lived the first 21 years of his life.  After that Daniel moved to Vienna,  Austria where he lived for almost 15 years and met Ingrid, the love of his life. You can find out more about this amazing woman at

Since 1992, they have lived in the Valley of the Sun in Phoenix, Arizona with their 2 children Laila and Pablo (they are adults now).

Daniel is the founder of the “Tune into Life Process” and the 

Breathe for Peace” project.

Daniel love's to make music and he is a passionate drummer. Daniel studied and played north Indian tabla over the last 30 + years. Daniel also loves the djembe, congas, all percussion and recently he got deeply into playing the didgeridoo.

Daniel has been working with conscious breathing for a long, long time. To him breath was and is the direct path to wholeness and the direct experience of oneness. Daniel is trained as a qualified rebirther with Günter and Silvava Griebl and Leonard Orr and Vivation professional with the late Jim Leonard.

Daniel ventured into various fields of the human potential movement and received training in such varied fields as group dynamics, art therapy, socio-cultural animation and energy healing. Daniel is a graduate of the “Curriculum of Living”with the Landmark Education Corporation (former EST) and Income Builders International (IBI Global, now CEO space).

In November of 2011 he completed the certification course in Spiral Dynamic Integral 1 + 2 with Dr. Don Beck at the Adizes Institute in Santa Barbara.

Daniel has given well over 1500 personal sessions and had a long career as a seminar leader working with hundreds of groups over the last 25+ years both in the USA and Europe.

his biggest passion is what he calls Living Oneness.

"I hope to meet you in person some time… I really mean that!  I love people… with all the mess that comes with that. Building a global community of love, happiness and dignity is what I feel called to do." - Daniel Hirtz

Daniel's main teachers where the people in his life: his wife Ingrid and his children Laila and Pablo. He feels deeply connected with the teachers in his life: the late Count Arnold Keyserling,  Leonard OrrJim Leonard,  Günter and Silvava Griebl,  Romhis Tajon as well as Osho, Adyashanti. Many others have made a profound impact on his life often times without even knowing it.

And again he thanks Dr. Don Beck and Ken Wilber for their teachings on Spiral Dynamics and Integral Philosophy. The understanding of the stage development of humanity and the distinction to states of consciousness he found extremely helpful to him.

Here are some of his guiding principles:

Overall: Living oneness. That to Daniel translates to: making oneness personal with the people in his life.


  • Festivals of joy,  celebrations of each other (we do a lot of party’s) ,  community drum circles,  playing music that uplifts and inspires.
  • Holistic Activism – not finding one dimensional contexts that exclude contrasting assessments for the sake of limited participation.
  • Building Integral Economic Engines - using the opportunities of our current economic system for massive liberation. It’s not what the marketplace makes us do but how we use the marketplace for good.

Daniel is on the board of the Fusion Foundation - a community building organization that makes a difference here in Phoenix where Daniel live.
