Support For Your Journey

Colin has been deeply committed to inner work and contemplative practice for the past 20 years.  Totaling more than 4 years of retreats. He has learned a lot about the approach to inner work during this time, often in a trial by fire. As a teenager with strong martial arts training, he approached yoga and meditation with the same Yang qualities.  He has learned that storming the gates of inner work and spiritual development can create more challenges along the way. As a result, he has come to value a more nuanced and honoring approach.  He has come to a relationship with deep inner places of darkness as well as the bright light and grace of presence.   Along with his wide open heart, deep care and attuned empathy, Colin offers an open and strong presence that people can drop into. As a result he is a good guide for helping other navigate the tricky inner terrain of awakening and embodying Presence.  He has a background in bodywork, craniosacral therapy, energy work, mindfulness based trauma informed somatic approaches, and years of training as a psychotherapist that inform his foundation and approach.  He completed a heart-centered mentorship program where he began to develop his unique and continually unfolding approach. 

Colin holds an attuned filed of Presence to help strengthen and support access  inner resources and Presence
for Seekers who want to embody the Truth of their experience.

He has been influenced by many including:

Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche

Colin also has a background in carpentry and gardening.  He loves the simplicity and complexity found in nature and often uses photography (all photo's but one on website are his) as a medium for this appreciation.   He enjoys swimming, exploring National Forests, thrift store foraging, cooking, movies and music.
