Making Your Brain Work Better

What’s getting in the way of your full enjoyment of life? If you’re like most people, you struggle with emotions that really hold you back: regret, envy, anxiety, hopelessness, despair, jealousy, anger, even a feeling of “What’s the point?”

All of these feeling-states are built by your mind. You’re kind of trapped in there, with your shitty thoughts. And the stories your mind creates end up running your life.

Life can be an amazing ride if you figure out how to disentangle yourself from your mind.


Vision Boarding

Neuroscience shows they work. Take charge of your life’s direction, grow your career, get clearer on your purpose, shift your relationship dynamics — whatever you want to focus on. Learn how to master your attention and get it working for you. Workshops based in brain research.

  • Get clarity on your trajectory.
  • Learn the importance of the words you think and say.
  • Learn how to focus your attention.
  • One-on-one or with a group.

Awareness Coaching

You know there’s something better. You’ve seen other people who have it, or you’ve had glimpses of it yourself. You’re ready to engage in the practice it takes to get there. This isn’t counselling, it’s coaching: if you’re still hiding behind your stories and defenses, it’s not going to work. But if you’re ready to peel back the layers to get to the root of the block(s), then let’s go. Leave your bullshit at the door. You’re here to work.

  • Learn to discriminate between your thoughts and your awareness.
  • Practice techniques to master and hold your perspective.
  • Explore select readings that will push your understanding and inspire deeper practice.
  • One-on-one work.


What participants are saying

“I feel like my mind and my intentions are in a totally different state since the workshop. I feel what I want, and am programming and working with my brain to make things happen.”

Vision boarding participant


I’m Alex. Thinker, listener, watcher, warrior. I started working on rewiring my brain some ten years ago, after acknowledging that my behaviour, driven by my thought stream, was destroying my life.

I lost my marriage and my home over it. One memorable time, I almost lost my mind.

By the time I had declared bankruptcy and foreclosed on my house, I was ready to admit to myself that I was living out the wrong story. I didn’t want to feel so out of control of my life. I realized no one was coming to make things better. If I wanted to things to be different, it was up to me.

So I worked. I read. I talked with masterful people. I watched. I wrote. I went to a lot of different counsellors. I experimented with my love relationships. I went deeper with my friendships. I opened up, hard, because why not? I want to feel better. Now it’s a game — and I can’t get enough.

I turned negative self-talk into a depth of self-love I can’t even explain.

I worked judgment and blame out of my narrative as hard as working a ball bearing out of an IV tube.

I turned raging jealousy into an open relationship.

I’m not perfect, nor do I consider myself enlightened. Me and the people I surround myself with just say we’re on the path. I work at it constantly. I still feel anger sometimes. I still feel fear — especially in that tender spot, where I fear I’m not good enough or that I’m not worthy. I still hear judgment rise up now and then. And I see all of these as simply another opportunity to practice. This is a lifetime of work, not a one-time thing you “get”. But it’s joyful work, and it’s freeing work.

The next 30, 40, 50 years are going to happen to you anyway. Why not use those years to practice feeling better?
