Rio's most recent work is the soon to be published book, Mind Mirrors, Minor White and the Art of Seeing. Rio was an apprentice-in-residence with the reknown late photographer Minor White at MIT. Mind MIrrors will present for the first time to the public White's exercises for seeing, developed over his many years as a photography teacher. The work provides tools for seeing, photography, and applications to personal development. During the Minor White retrospective at The Getty Museum in Los Angeles Rio presented a gallery tour of the exhibit and a private workshop for the Getty educational staff utilizing the first three exercises from Mind Mirrors. Please email Rio to be placed on the email announcement list for Mind Mirrors.
In 2017 Rio made two presentations at the International Transpersonal Society conference in Prague. He introduced the sacred plant Datura as a potential therapeutic tool, and presented the first three exercises for seeing from his upcoming book Mind Mirrors. He later spoke at the Altered Conference in Berlin where he presented on The Importance of Set in Altered States Exploration and chaired a panel on Sailing the Psychedelic Seas.
