I was blessed with serious Asperger’s Syndrome and dyslexia. I couldn’t succeed in the normal way, so not only did I need to become non-normal, I had to find out-of-the-box ways to step out of my limitations.
My 35-year journey has taught me something vital: what others call “impossible” is possible, just not with the usual means. I learned that if you want something badly enough and are willing to go for it in unconventional ways, you often can create it. For me, that meant healing myself through holistic health and shamanism.
During my quest for healing, I studied what it means to be a man in many different ways. I operated private practices, owned a holistic medical clinic, taught corporate executives to work more effectively, co-created the leading Mindfulness Stress Reduction company in the country, and was privileged to help several thousand clients heal what they thought was impossible.
Today I live in a small town in northern Idaho, working with a limited number of clients and writing for blogs. My passion is showing men that they are not screwed up – they were just never taught what it was to be a man. My book, Grow Up: A Man's Guide to Masculine Emotional Intelligence, lays out a simple way to learn what was never taught to us. Men learn how to be unreasonable on the road to being remarkable.
