Our Wildest Dreams: The Transformative Power of Your Soul and Subconscious
One of the best parts of my work as a Spiritual Guide is helping people interpret messages in their dreams and subconscious. These tell us how we’re being called to change ourselves, and change the world. In this introductory class, you'll get to explore the meaning in dreams and other numinous experiences you've had. And I’ll share about my approach to this art of interpretation, so you can keep practicing this yourself!
Hosted by Wisdom Ways Center for Spirituality at St. Catherine University, in St. Paul, MN
Fri, March 17, 6:30 - 8:00 pm CST
Public event – $25 online only, and if you can't make it, you can still register and get the recording of the class! – register here: https://www.wisdomwayscenter.org/events-registrations/p/our-wildest-dreams
Student retreats at Cretin-Derham Hall High School
I’m thrilled for the opportunity to help facilitate the Sophomore and Junior retreats at my high school alma mater, March 16 and 29-30!
Lessons from the Pandemic series
I’m booking events for a Lessons from the Pandemic series, where organizations and communities can have me come in to lead a presentation and discussion about what we can all learn from the last few years.
Options for 1-, 2-, and 3-hour talks, and easily customized to the host context: workplaces, schools, churches and faith communities, etc.
I’m especially hoping these can serve people who’ve been in frontline work: healthcare, eldercare, mental health, pastoral care, education, caregivers, etc.
Planning a 3-part general audience series for April through June 2023, hosted through Wisdom Ways

Contact me for more information!
And I’ll be publishing some of my key findings from the pandemic recovery work in an upcoming series of blog posts, and as a full ebook and video series – stay tuned for that as well!
Guide for the Grief Journey: Ten Touchstones
In the past year, all the work I've done around pandemic recovery has solidified a project I’ve been chewing on for many years. Ever since my dad passed on in 2015, I’ve always wished there was a more thorough base of support for people going through grief – and I feel we need this as a planet now more than ever. Finally, I’m excited to announce that it’s coming to fruition...
I call it Guide for the Grief Journey: Ten Touchstones, and it might be the first-ever comprehensive, practical, easily-accessible course for helping people process grief. It’ll be hosted through Wisdom Ways online and in-person, starting as early as Fall 2023. We’re currently in the planning stages, reviewing the 100 pages of curriculum I’ve assembled. But stay tuned for upcoming announcements!

"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."
"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.
