I love tracking soul...because it lets us share dreams. It gives us permission to see the imagination as more than entertainment, distraction, or pretty picture.
Looking for soul gives us permission to see meaningful coincidences as dropping the barrier between inner and outer life for the sake of seeing better what is important to us—and calling it synchronicity. Tracking soul allows us to imagine there was an acorn essence to the beginning of your life and mine that wants to become an oak, a tree of life. Tracking soul is an adventure with who we are.
Born in Chicago, I've commercial fished in Alaska, survived an avalanche, opened and ran a bookstore, and studied literature in Missoula. My first vision quest in Death Valley almost a decade ago, changed everything for me. I am a father of two amazing boys and a husband to my beautiful wife living in Boulder, Colorado.
