My Drive
Here's why I am a facilitator of healing:

I'm commited to living in my truest expression, my most authentic self, and I hope that this may inspire others to do the same (i.e. to live their personal truths). I believe that if each of us become as genuine and self-realized as possible, many of the world's challenges would be relieved. This is the power of empathy, compassion, and love.  
I've been on a healing journey for quite some time. With experiences ranging from the simple joys of relaxing on a lakeshore to harrowing near death events, I'm continually exploring the bounds of existance. I believe that everyone has been born with a purpose, a reason to wake up and get-out-of-bed that goes beyond expectation or obligation. Before I found mine, I lived a life completely immersed amungst death, stagnation, and pain. It was not a life that I wanted to live and thus I stopped living and merely existed in a numbed vacant state. After years of this hellish existance, sprinkled with a variety of failed suicide attempts and other methods of self-destruction, I reached the preverbial "rock bottom" and incidentally discovered a path towards salvation.
The 'path of hope' I began to walk was unearthed by the realization that if I'm not living a life in active persuit of a dream than I'm not actually living at all. This 'non-living life' was actually the underlying discomfort that perpetuated my cycle of self-destruction.  Equipped with this enhanced awareness, I began to deeply explore within myself to uncover the lost and forgotten dreams; to restore them, empower them, and utilize them as guideposts for navigating life's unknowns. This journey has brought me here, to this moment, to create a healing space for assisting others in finding their purpose in life (with hopefully a lot less struggle than I endured). In other words my reason, my intention, for doing this work is to help co-create a world of empowered individuals who function together as a harmonious whole.

Be the change that you want to see in the world.
We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.– Mahatma Gandhi
