I am deeply influenced by Emilie Conrads’ inquiry and the time spent with her. In going through my own deep process she was finally someone that resonated with my own. I am also influenced by Cynthia Lane, again as he could support and understand my inner experiences. I am thankful for her insight and support at very crucial times. Both Emilie and Cynthia’s recognition was life and path affirming. Also, Gayle who when I was younger and surfing – recognized my experiential nature, and supported my growth and empowerment. There was also Tim and Mark who imparted much support as coaches.  

I am also influenced by Systems Theory, David Bohm, Thomas Berry, Ramana Maharishi, Krishnamurti, Rumi, Rabindranath Tagore, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Riane Eisler, and many more.

Nature will always be my teacher.

Other influences include my life as a professional athlete and surfer. I started this one young, traveling around the world at 17. This is a path I personally took in learning about the body and performance, it lead me to learn much from various bodyworkers, wellness and coaching expertise that I encountered, the life experiences with different cultures teachers and healers around the world. 

What I honor is that we all approach learning and growth differently – maybe there are some similarities and generalities, even so, we all have our way. 

My greatest influence, most of all is Water, which has been my life, and continues to be my greatest friend, inspiration, healer, and teacher. These all inform Flow Awareness and Body of Wonder offerings.
