Helping You Harness the Power of Thought

Thoughts become things. The most powerful force on Earth sits right between your ears.

Learn how to focus your attention. It’s the most valuable thing you have.


Awareness Coaching

You know there’s something better. It’s a place of calm, of nonreaction, of equanimity. 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. Virtual. $150 per hour, less with a package. If you live in my city (Victoria) and if you’re a nice sort, we can take the coaching on a walk in the forest.

  • 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.

Vision Boarding

Gather more of what you want into your world. Learn how powerful our brains are at bringing the things we think about into our reality. Some people call this manifestation. Others call it eerie. I call it absolutely anything is possible. Workshops based in neuroscience research. Virtual. $450 per session, upper limit 20 people.

  • Learn the power of your thoughts, words, beliefs and actions.
  • Listen to stories of incredible results from people's vision boards.
  • Reflect on the power of gratitude in bringing your dreams closer.
  • One-on-one or with a group.


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."

Pam Chandla, Government of British Columbia

"Thank you. Everyone loved it. We literally went over the boards until 11 p.m. Super successful activity."

Becky Murray, Family Business Association Vancouver Island

"I put a dog on my vision board...and the universe delivered!! I didn't even seek him out directly. A friend reached out saying someone she knew had the sweetest foster doggy that needed a forever home. Every morning I walk past my board and I think about how that brought Bruno and I together. That little board has given me clarity and direction through all the curveballs this year has thrown."

Emily Mathison, marketing lead, software company


I’m Alex. If labels help, then I’m a consultant and bestselling author. I taught middle school in my early career. My burning desire for the past decade has been to master my mind so I don’t get pulled around by emotion, impulse, and other people’s expectations.

I’ve been a vision boarder for 20 years, and I’ve got some pretty astonishing stories to tell—both mine and those who have come to my workshops.

I have some things to share with you. I won’t say “teach”, because everybody’s experience is unique and who am I to assume you need to learn anything at all?

I study Tao. The farther down the path I walk, the less visible I wish to be. I no longer seek a following or a tribe or a platform. The reverse. I wish simply to live…simply. Free. At peace.

You can, too.
