TESTIMONIALS

"Brian has been a true "anam cara" (soul friend) on my spiritual journey, walking with me patiently and insightfully through seasons of transition, grief, flourishing, and difficulty. His capacity to hold the width and breadth of my story while offering me fresh encouragements, heartfelt resonance, and illuminating questions along the way has been a quite literal godsend."

"Brian helped me structure and execute a solo Vision Quest in the Arizona desert. He was a beautiful advisor who centered his advice on my experience, and offered guidance according to the lessons and questions I was seeking. I felt so lucky to have him as a mentor for this journey I pursued; When I completed three days of fasting and praying, he was my first call."

- M.B.

"Brian provided a safe, non-judgmental space for me to explore my doubts, fears, and biggest questions, while offering spiritual context that allowed me to hold all of those things with compassion and redirect my focus to cultivate a greater, multi-layered perspective. He suggested practices that helped me zoom out and get out of the way, which deepened my connection to the present moment, the more-than-human world, the mysterious forces at play.

 

I appreciated having the time set aside with Brian to keep me accountable in my commitment to discovering more about my soul's purpose. His questions helped bring more clues to light and maintain a stronger curiosity beyond our conversations. Instead of watching TV or scrolling on my phone, our sessions got me excited to read books about mythology, do dreamwork with friends, meditate, or journal — at first so that I would have something to discuss with Brian, and then because it became routine.

 

Brian has a way of reaching people where they are and making gentle suggestions that invite you to see things differently. The biggest thing I got was not new knowledge, but continuous reminders of the truth I already knew that so often gets buried by everyday life. The spiritual path takes courage so it's immensely helpful to have a partner encouraging you to stay the course. I'm grateful to have Brian along with me on my journey.
