Leadership Coach


Soul Guide


I love to hang out at the crossroads: between activism and mysticism.

My calling is to help others live an undivided life. It is that lived experience where role and soul are true to one another.


I serve as an international public speaker, coach and guide in a process of personal and professional development. My leadership coaching and group facilitation have taken me to various cultures and nations: China, Central America, the Caribbean, throughout Canada, the U.S, and on sailboats, surf waves, and hiking trails.


I am forever grateful to have been mentored by the activist intellectual Parker J. Palmer in the Circles of Trust lineage and by The Center for Courage & Renewal. As co-founder of the intentional community, RareBirds Housing Co-operative, I have a passion for environmental justice, exploring alternative living and a sustainable relationship to the land. I serve as an Ambassador for the Global Ecovillage Network.

I am an Anglican priest, a passionate activist, a poet, have run for public office, contributed to public policy, and for a decade, I managed a zoo! Robyn and I live on the traditional and unceded territory of Secwepemcúĺecw (Kamloops, BC).


Individual Sessions

I offer individual coaching sessions as a soulful presence and guide. My approach is aligned with how I guide small groups: providing a sense of flow and rhythm, gentle facilitation, metaphors, stories, evocative imagery, poetry and reflections on what life is revealing. I provide a deep attentiveness and offers developed skills in the art of open questions and reflective storytelling.


group Sessions

I guide group sessions in leadership, personal and professional development and spiritual growth: online and in-person. I use the Circle of Trust approach, which is distinguished by principles and practices intended to create a process of shared exploration. It is a space where people can find trust to nurture their personal and professional integrity and to find the courage to act on it. This way of being together has the power to transform individuals, families, workplaces and communities.
