“When you know who you are; when your mission is clear and you burn with the inner fire of unbreakable will; no cold can touch your heart; no deluge can dampen your purpose. You know that you are alive.”

Chief Seattle, Duwamish

“There can never be peace between nations until there is first known that true peace which…is within the souls of men.”

Black Elk

We live in a world where hatred, violence and oppression increasingly grow in spite of the efforts of millions of nonprofits around the world. Why is this? With so many well-meaning people and organizations, why aren’t we making a bigger difference for people, animals and the environment? What efforts do we need to make as a collective to really see the changes we want? How do we make great strides like those before us such as Martin Luther King, Jr., Malcolm X, Gandhi, Mother Teresa, and many others? 

With the constant struggle to survive, the shrinking middle class, the ever growing corporations and governments, how do we take care of ourselves and our families, while fighting such awful oppressions and abuses going on in the world? How do we accomplish things where we feel the odds are totally against us? 

These are issues I’ve dealt with in my own life. For as long as I can remember, I’ve had to survive situations where I was forced to ride or die. People tell me I’m resilient, a scrapper, and have a keen ability to make things work when there isn’t much to work with. I spent years studying human behavior in small and large ways so that I could understand what happened to me, my family, your family, and the world. I needed to know why it is the way it is with all of the oppression and violence. I needed to understand power and control so that I could understand what it takes to heal the break within the mind of the collective conscious. The social norms, the toxic status quos. And 16 years of study have shown me a way we can both heal ourselves and work towards world peace. 

BUILD A SOLID FOUNDATION WITHIN AND
TRANSFORM YOUR LIFE

AUTHENTICITY

By healing your trauma you reconnect with your inner child and self. Through this connection you gain your authenticity and fire

Personal Power
Belief in Self
Freedom
Self Sufficiency

INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS

Societally, we operate in toxic relationships and culture. We are either helping build healthy relationships or breaking them down. The art of understanding these complexities is through developing interpersonal relationships.

EFFECTIVELY COMMUNICATE

Using healthy systems of communication, learn to transform your interactions with other through:

Emotional Intelligence
Nonviolent Communication
Effective Communication

RELATIONAL LEADERSHIP

Predominately, our world is and has been run by ego-based leadership, which puts few people in power of many. This causes power to become unbalanced due to the lack of diversity in leadership that represents all groups of societies. Learn about relational leadership which helps to build better societies through seeking to understand the disparities between people and groups.

PRACTICE ALTRUISM

Around the world are political and economic systems that are zero-sum games, which means there is a rooted belief that one person or group must lose in order for the other to win. This polarized viewpoint exploits those with less power. Learn about altruistic values and practice them in your life to help fight against these unethical systems and promote ones that serve the greater good.

EGALITARIAN WORLDVIEW

An egocentric worldview is one that is solely focused on the self. This can also be extended to only thinking of one' family or certain groups one associates with. Through learning an egalitarian worldview, we seek to strive for understanding with all groups in how they work and live.

CO-DEPENDENT

Trauma and Abuse
disconnect from self
Toxic Social Norms/ Systemic Abuse
disconnect from family and friends
Oppression
disconnect from community and state
Love for Power
disconnect from humanity
We are all constantly in transition. We are moving towards goals, which means we will have things that are hypocritical and illogical. Acceptance of yourself in that in paramount to accepting others in theirs, so that we can move past the emotional barriers of transformation.

INDEPENDENT

INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS

Effective leadership begins in the mindset of equality. A group is as strong as its weakest member, and in this we build up everyone, together.

It also helps us to communicate more effectively, when we are authentic to our needs to be out of the box, because it makes our communication more effective. Communication with ourselves and others is our navigation system to a better world.

ALTRUISM

We are social beings. How we do any kind of relating determines how we live life and achieve goals. If we don't develop healthy relationship with self and others, we don't stand a chance with changing the world into a better place.

We are social beings. How we do any kind of relating determines how we live life and achieve goals. If we don't develop healthy relationship with self and others, we don't stand a chance with changing the world into a better place.

You have to look deeper, way below the anger, the hurt, the hate, the jealousy, the self-pity, way down deeper where the dreams lie, son. Find your dream. It’s the pursuit of the dream that heals you.
