I have found that when we cling to our patterns of thought and emotion, our fears, our desires — the existential scars we tend to confuse for our true selves — sooner or later life begins to lose its value, its meaning; we may be good at playing the “success” game, but one day we inevitably begin to feel listless, hollow, or sick.

This is not an easy problem to solve. You can abandon the corporate world and dive into the spiritual one, or vice versa, but the truth is that every time we think we’ve seen beyond our limitations, found an answer, or discovered a meaning with which to really structure our lives, if we stay honest and keep searching, we eventually realize that we’ve simply put ourselves into a subtler game, a more intricately constructed box. The myth of Sisyphus seems an appropriate metaphor.

I am not here to peddle magic solutions, because there are no magic solutions. Life is difficult and complex, and in one way or another always will be. But when we accept that fact, our search for purpose or meaning or passion does not cease; rather, it changes in tone. Instead of a desperate rush to reach an elusive end goal, it becomes a calm, steady, and profoundly powerful way of being. Sisyphus may never reach the top, but he only gets stronger and wiser the more he keeps trying. Once we truly accept that there are no magic solutions we can begin to consider the possibility that there may be no magic problems to solve either.

I became a Wim Hof Method instructor because my personal process of searching has reached an inflection point, a transition; as with any passion that grows and blossoms, there comes a time – when it is solid enough to inspire or guide – that in order to expand further, it has to be shared. Like a tree, I have been digging my roots deeper, raising my branches higher; feeding myself until I burst with energy. The season has come in which I am ready to share the fruits of my labor.

I work intimately with individuals or small groups, using the Wim Hof Method along with my background in psychology and plant medicine to heal and grow; from the extremes, we find our center. I am dedicated to developing and sharing practices that can help us reconnect with what is at once our truest nature and our greatest promise: vitality, resilience, and profound inner peace. From there, I believe, we can make our lives - and the world itself - better places to truly be.

My actions are guided by a single principal that is both simple and exacting: the truest measure of the quality of the life that I live is the amount of love that I can bring into the world. My aspiration, every day, is to live up to the words of Kahlil Gibran, who tells us that work is love made visible.
