If you know anything about me or my work, ​you ​know I’m a bit obsessed with this quote from the playwright and social activist George Bernard Shaw:


“This is the true joy in life, the being used for a purpose recognized by yourself as a mighty one; the being thoroughly worn out before you are thrown on the scrap heap; the being a force of Nature instead of a feverish selfish little clod of ailments and grievances complaining that the world will not devote itself to making you happy.”


This September, I’m launching a six month small group mastermind program for people who feel inspired to experience “the true joy in life” and be used by the creative potential of the deeper mind to impact the world.

Here’s how it works:

  • After you’re accepted into the group, we’ll begin our time together with a one on one video call. The purpose will be to simply connect, get to know each other a little better, and lay the foundations for the six months ahead.
  • We’ll meet face to face as a group for the first time from the 22nd – 26th of September at my home in Los Angeles. Over the course of our five days together, we’ll take a deep dive into the nature of creativity, productivity, and impact.  We’ll be exploring both the universal and the unique – that which is true for all of us and that which is unique to each of us individually.
  • We’ll get together virtually each month for a 90 minute webinar to share progress and for coaching on whatever you’re bumping into on your journey. You’ll also get buddied up with one of your colleagues and I’ll give a group assignment each month – a focus point to make sure things keep moving forward in the development and deepening of our own expression.
  • On the 2nd and 3rd of March, we’ll come back together at my home to reconnect, share our wins and wows, and solidify our grounding for moving forward.

The cost for this six month mastermind group is $15,000, and it is by invitation or application only.

What that means is that if we haven’t already spoken, you will need to fill out an application including a description (or ideally a sample) of your work in the world. You can find the full details of what’s required on the form.

Here’s a not so short list of some of the many people it has been my honor to coach, impact, and mentor. Please understand, I take no credit for their gifts, their own impact, or their success. Many of them may well have been equally successful had they never met me and I venture to say nearly all of them have had other coaches and mentors along the way. But I include them because they have acknowledged my impact on their work and to introduce you to them if you’ve not yet had the chance to check them out. They don’t all believe what I believe, teach what I teach, or or work how I work. But each one of them has found their voice and lets the light within them illuminate the world around them on a daily basis:
