Inside every one of us is a good, brave and courageous heart.
Inside every one of us is a unique gift that is only ours to carry – our magic.
The world needs YOUR magic, YOUR medicine, YOUR unique gifts.
When you are living life fully as yourself, you naturally bring that magic to the world, and you give others permission to do the same.
The truth is, we are always in action. Most of us are just taking action in a way that feeds the systems that are feeding on us. It's all we've known, it's modern society's auto-pilot. When we shift our energy and take action in the direction of our soul's truth, it becomes empowering – empowering to ourselves, to our communities, to the Earth, to the generations to come ...
It has always been important to find alignment with our soul's truth. But there is a unique opportunity right NOW on the planet, at this exact moment in time, to bring about real harmony in the world. We are more connected than ever before, the flaws in the systems we created are more visible than ever before, and people are waking up like never before. The more of us that take real action to step into our true selves, to bring our magic and our medicine to the world, the faster we will bring about this amazing global possibility!
Whether you feel most comfortable with a one-on-one session or prefer to start with a group workshop, my sacred offerings can help you reconnect to parts of yourself that you may have lost or pushed aside, and ultimately step into who you truly are and the innate gifts that bring you joy, purpose and fulfillment.

I grew up in the Bronx with divorced parents and a perpetual reality of survival mode as they struggled to support 5 kids. While there was plenty of love, everyone was taxed to the extreme with no support communally or financially. Adding further struggle to my experience, I never seemed to fit into any of the social groups I lived or went to school with: I was too Hispanic to be black, too dark to be white, too "gringo" to be Dominican, too ethnically diverse to be American, too emotional to be manly, and too spiritual to be Christian. Although this was extremely painful to experience as a child, as an adult I now understand that their rejection led me to find freedom in being exactly who I am. And it gave me the ability to celebrate others without judgment as well.
I've been blessed with many mentors in the realm of my spiritual gifts, and because of their generosity of time and spirit I was able to excel rapidly in these areas. But when it came to mentorship around my sacred masculinity, I often found that role unfilled. There was no existing blueprint for how to be a sacred man, and the blueprint I was given as a child was toxic at best. I had no one to teach me how to be strong in my gentleness, how to be both compassionate and loving as a partner and a beast of goodness as a lover, how to support myself and stay on task to achieve success ... so I would take a deep breath and brace myself for another journey through the School of Hard Knocks, knowing I would have to learn the hard way and figure it out on my own.
But as I walked the long, hard road of self-taught self-discovery, I was inspired by knowing that one day there would be other men who came upon a fork in the road of their lives, and instead of finding nobody there, they would find me to help them navigate the sacred path towards a life of compassion, strength, integrity and clarity.
I now know that the only thing men will need to embark upon this path with me is the knowledge of two truths:
1) The ability to recognize when we need help and ask for it
2) Understanding that a solid investment in the betterment of oneself is always a smart and necessary endeavor
