“Fastened securely to my back is the weight of a man in his becoming”. – Ian Dawe
September 9th, 2007 this journey began for me. I held our baby boy for the first time and two things became clear to me in that moment.
I’m going to die.
I have nothing to offer him.
I’ve spent each day since then working to cultivate myself as deep as possible, as fast as possible, to be of greatest service possible.
I’m here to teach what I’ve learned, to learn what I can from you, and with you. And, as Timothy Leary said, “find the others…”.
I’m a teacher and practicioner of flow, mindfulness, meditation, breathwork, journaling, gratitude, emotional intelligence, and studying to be a yoga teacher. I’m here to help you look within and develop radical awareness and radical attention, and to use those skills to align intentions with actions. This is the gift of unobstructed self expression, the gift of bringing your unique genius into the world.
My life’s passion is to help people look within, move away from chronic stress, tension, anxiety, and fear and move closer to calm, clear, confidence, joy, and love.
It is my life’s honor to share my journey with my life partner and our four amazing gifts that are our children. I say thank you to each of them. Each day I am called deeper within that I might ransom my best in service of the best in others.
“Admit it. You aren’t like them. You’re not even close. You may occasionally dress yourself up as one of them, watch the same mindless television shows as they do, maybe even eat the same fast food sometimes. But it seems that the more you try to fit in, the more you feel like an outsider, watching the “normal people” as they go about their automatic existences. For every time you say club passwords like “Have a nice day” and “Weather’s awful today, eh?”, you yearn inside to say forbidden things like “Tell me something that makes you cry” or “What do you think deja vu is for?”. Face it, you even want to talk to that girl in the elevator. But what if that girl in the elevator (and the balding man who walks past your cubicle at work) are thinking the same thing? Who knows what you might learn from taking a chance on conversation with a stranger? Everyone carries a piece of the puzzle. Nobody comes into your life by mere coincidence. Trust your instincts. Do the unexpected. Find the others…”
