Mindfulness Workshop Experiences
Juli G., Workshop Participant
Thank you Ben for giving us the tools to be happier! Your voice and guidance in the audios is so soothing and calm, but with the right amount of energy to keep me alert and focused. The way you transmit love and compassion thru the audios can be felt as if you were here in person. I was really looking forward to those 30 minutes of the workshop every day! Thank you for a really enjoyable experience!

Ben has an authentic gift in gently guiding to the higher self, inspiring daily practice and awareness.

It was an amazing, wonderful experience! Well explained and great guidance, and I can say that for me what was really surprising was the accuracy of the instructions, maybe one of the best mindfulness workshops I have experienced so far.
What is IKIGAI?
Why it matters
IKIGAI is a concept from Japanese philosophy which translates roughly as "one's reason for being." It's a central idea or calling which adds deep meaning and context to your life.
Whether you see it as something innate or destined which must be uncovered, or as something you consciously determine, I believe IKIGAI is crucial to a purposeful and fulfilling life.
It becomes your compass orientation, your center of gravity, your litmus test for decisions and the use of your energy. When your goals, actions, and habits are built around your IKIGAI, their potency and meaning is multiplied. You are more likely to experience a life of flow, abundance, synchronicity, and fulfillment.
Yet many of us are blocked from discovering it. Societal scripts play again and again the tropes of fear, self-doubt, and conformity. Old patterns of thinking and behavior need to be brought into awareness, healed, transformed, transmuted, evolved.
My coaching, healing, and mindfulness work is designed to do just that...allow your own innate awareness to bring healing and clarity so that you can evolve toward your IKIGAI.
I am an entrepreneur, educator, coach, healer, and mindfulness expert with 20 years of meditation experience. As co-founder and CEO of an education company based in Dallas (a role I still hold), I've sought for ways to merge my role in the educational revolution with my passion for self-development, healing modalities, and practices that help one find and align with their deeper life purpose (Ikigai).
It took many years of deep work with many sidetracks and detours for me to begin to find that sweet spot I call IKIGAI. But when I did, everything changed and shifted. As it turns out, MY purpose is to facilitate experiences and hold space for OTHERS to help unlock their own innate healing and wisdom, a process which will reveal their own life purpose.
I happily and skillfully straddle the pragmatic and the esoteric and bring both to bear as tools for this individual evolution and healing process. I hold a Master's degree in Gifted Education from Southern Methodist University and have certifications in reiki, mindfulness training, Kita Sound Healing, and am currently completing certification as an Integrative Health Practitioner, an holistic approach which integrates Ayurveda, Functional Medicine, Naturopathy, Traditional Chinese Medicine, Orthomolecular Medicine, and Eastern Philosophy.
I bring an intuitive, open-hearted, and courageous approach to working with clients, whether in coaching, healing sessions, or workshops. If breakthroughs and progress were simple and automatic, they'd more often happen spontaneously while cycling through the limiting patterns that keep us stuck to the status quo. Positive evolution and transformation take courage, insight, and direction. That's where a coach and healing guide can be invaluable.
On The New Minds Podcast, I have real, inspired conversations with thinkers, authors, and passion-driven humans working in their own way to improve the world with big ideas and purposeful actions.
"Ben has an exceptional connection with gifted young minds. He sees the students for who they really are, and is able to gently help them explore their multipotentiality, and find their passions. Ben is an unusual guide and mentor rather than a traditional tutor figure as he incorporates the crucially important social-emotional component to the learning experience. My two profoundly gifted sons have benefited immensely from Ben's wisdom and guidance, not only through learning new skills but by raising their self-awareness."
"Working with Ben has mitigated the stress and pressure of high school! For the past 2 years, he's worked with my son, who is now a junior, by keeping him accountable, on track, and planning ahead. It's made such a difference by increasing his confidence and improving his performance, especially as he heads ever closer to the college application process."
