I've been healing "on the mat" since 2000, assisting in group journeys since 2011 and guiding one-on-one since 2018. In this culture when avenues for consciousness exploration are proliferating, it's good to work with someone with deep experience and a thriving connection to traditional ways and spiritual understanding.
When you come to me for counsel and guidance, we cocreate a healing relationship around your intentions for living. We find what works for you. Our collaboration is built on the shared faith that you can wake ever more fully to all of life's possibilities — because that's what all people are naturally called to and equipped to do.
I'd be honored to speak with you, wherever life finds you now.
Words from those I've served (shared anonymously)
"I feel like i am always learning from you and feeling grateful for the ways you hold a space that is structured just enough but not rigid in any way. Thank you for that modeling. Thank you for the showing of love and courageous vulnerability."
"I have quite possibly changed on a cellular level. My life reflections seem to have gone from one dimension to three."
"You have been an integral part of my healing process... the love you've shared, your understanding and compassion, and your ability to move straight to the heart.
"This is the first time I'm feeling hopeful that there is a path forward to healing because it hasn't felt like that ever before."
"The work we're doing has supercharged my growth, and it’s fun!"
“A friend asked me what medicine work has done for me. The first answer that came out was, ‘I've reconciled with my parents, and I'm happy to be alive for the first time in my life.’"
“A dramatic shift for the better. I think it may have saved our marriage.” —From the spouse of a client
"I feel like [the person I referred] is in one of the best, most grounded places in [their] life since working with you. [They are] setting more boundaries and making many changes while also being patient. Whatever you're doing is really working." —From a therapist, after making a referral six months before. Client's name and gender have been anonymized.
"I'm feeling an upwelling of gratitude for the community gathering last night, so here comes the spillover... I never would have thought that just sitting open for an extended period of time with other souls, in which any offering was welcome, with no expectation of response beyond silent receiving, would be so meaningful. It allowed me to sit with my resistances and, rather than trying to banish them, abide with them as part of me. While sitting with them I tried in vain to manifest the Self that could actively love them, but it turned out that that Self wasn't another such part, but was immanent in just the act of sitting and holding. I came away with an almost puzzling sense of calm and peace that's still with me today. The phrase that keeps bubbling up in my mind is: This is all the church I need."
"I believe that Daniel's vibrant spiritual life and his own journeys in meditation have provided him with a deep well of trust in the process. He never held himself out as an elevated authority but it was clear to me that he had done extensive research, both academic and personal. He is fascinated by the myriad expressions of the human experience, and he is open to the mystery of it all. I believe he holds each client the way he held me; with openness, respect and deep caring."
"Daniel, you have held my hand and guided me to shine light into places that need it. Thank you for allowing your gentle kindness to move through you toward me. I appreciate your presence and centeredness. Thank you for reflecting back to me keen observations and insights that are so helpful. My heart is full."
