My Name’s Justin & I Can Relate!
I was once scared of relationships. The idea of being deeply intimate, vulnerable, authentic, and having someone love me for it was terrifying. Even though the deepest desire in my body, heart, and soul was to love fully, express all of me, and share deep connection, it felt like a complete paradox. What I craved the most was the very thing that terrified me.
I felt lost in what to do, how to ask for help, and how to take the first step. This led me down windy paths of personal development, spiritual explorations, unconventional relationship dynamics, ecstatic movement, and mens’ development. I’m grateful after many seasons, mistakes, and trials to have realized what I was really seeking, was within me all along.
After a decade of learning and deepening my understanding of conscious relationship, inner relationship, mindfulness, archetypes, and empowering communication, I’m here to tell you that any emotion can be processed, any fear can be overcome, and it is possible to wake up each day, feeling connected, empowered, and soulful.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying that feeling like this every day is easy, but there are tools, strategies, and ways of being that can help you find your center and get back to it when the journey (inevitably) veers off course or Life throws a curveball.
“Like you, I’ve been confused, lonely, and hurt.
What I’ve learned is it wasn’t a life sentence, and how
the rest of my life could be radically different.”
If you’re ready to be supported every step of the way towards creating a soulful relationship with yourself that’s authentic, meaningful, and empowered, I’d invite you to check out the ways we could work together.
Let this be the first step in embracing a
Joyful, Empowered, & Soulful Life!
Here’s My Story…
I remember growing up feeling a deep desire to connect. And yet, it seemed what I found more often than not was separation, rejection, and confusion.
I spent my twenties very much in what I would call the matrix of the rat race. Driven by a need for security and external validation, I found a sense of success and belonging in the fast-paced sales floors and training rooms of various service and recruitment companies.
Even though I found a sense of success among the sales charts, I noticed something didn’t feel right as the years went by . If my value was based on what I did, then who was I if I didn’t produce or make the next sale?
It wasn’t until my early thirties along the shores of San Diego that I came to realize what was missing. Through a serendipitous collision of men’s development work, sobriety, and intentional community, I experienced the first taste of what it meant to “be,” and have that be enough.
So began my journey into what connection, community, and relationship meant to me. I dove headfirst into various spiritual teachings, intentional relating, sacred spaces, and dance floors, all the while seeking a deeper sense of what it meant to be human, to be connected, to be me.
Along the way, I met many teachers and guides, men and women who had done their work and who were able to share grounded wisdom and practical tools to navigate the unfamiliar yet resonate paths that were unfolding before me.
It wasn’t always easy. Many tears were shed, uncountable lonesome nights spent wondering at the stars, and many times this heart of mine has been touched, bruised, and cracked open by the fullness of life’s invitation.
I’m grateful for all the lessons, the challenges, the opportunities to grow and be of deeper service to our greater collective.
Since then, I’ve sought out and been fortunate to have been trained and mentored by some of the top teachers in conscious relating, values-based living, intentional communication, embodied movement, and sacred sexuality.
I’ve held space for countless men’s circles, been a part of creating and leading intentional communities, facilitated workshops on conscious relationship, authentic connection, conscious touch, embodiment, and sacred movement, and have coached men and women across the globe towards their personal truth and empowerment.
Now, almost a decade later, I find myself standing on the intersection of soulful intimacy, sacred sexuality, somatic awareness, and relationship empowerment with a warm invitation for others, perhaps yourself, to join me in a brave new world we’re creating together.
