Coaching & Testimonials
When I began having waking up symptoms, days of flow, changes in perception, periodic non-dual experiences popping in and out I was very confused. I was worried I was going crazy. After some sessions with Ryan, his ability to explain with great clarity what's going on with me, and recommendations to some very effective techniques for grounding myself as the waking up took hold. If you are having any of these signs and symptoms of waking up. I highly recommend reaching out to him.

Ryan is someone that I instantly felt connected to while listening to his Podcast. His humble yet curious approach to interviewing people allows them to open up so their message can flow seamlessly and come across clearly. Experiences, secrets and insights are shared that I haven’t heard elsewhere. He makes complex talks on awakening and non-dualism easy to understand, and leads meditations that make me want to come back forever.
It’s been a beautiful blessing to know Ryan. The rough waters of my spiritual journey become still by his guidance… the winding road has become more straight. Words cannot express how incredibly grateful I am to him for his time, dedication, and for the discoveries I have made about myself because of the questions he asks and the wisdom he openly shares. He’s had a positive and tremendous impact on my path. Thank you, Ryan.
Ryan is by far the best meditation teacher I've ever had. In fact he's the best spiritual teacher I've ever had! The realizations I've gained from him, I never received in 25 years of a dedicated spiritual search. And I have searched long and hard; Vipassana, Shamanic Circles, Ananda Marga, New Age modalities, Asana Yoga, Entheogens, Esoteric/Occult Magick, Psychoanalysis, NLP certification, Hypnosis, etc. You name it, I've probably tried it.
Yet all of those practices and all of that searching never added up to the core, foundational experience of presence he taught me to recognize. Somehow this charming, non-judgemental, 29 year old, millennial has taught me to see something so powerful yet so subtle, that somehow evaded all of my previous searching. I now know why ;) Ryan taught me how to recognize and abide in my essential nature, awareness of awareness itself, I-AM-ness, Rigpa, Me. I now can recognize and stabilize this awareness, this beingness, outside of meditation, in my day to day life. And it has transformed me.
This I-Am-ness that I experience is before my thoughts, before my emotions, before my physical sensations. It is my essence, which somehow escaped me all these years. It's Me! In fact it never even occurred to me to look for it, because I never knew it was so accessible. I thought it was in some far off deep place, when really it was in front of my face all along. And this place is not a neutral place. There is joy here, a "little joy". No matter how horrible I might feel, if I am in awareness of this place, there is always a slight peace, a slight joy behind those feelings. Sometimes actually it's not slight at all. Sometimes it's overpowering and makes me want to cry. In those times I am overcome with the gratitude and joy of simply existing and for no other reason than that. I have become my own refuge as the Buddha advises. I finally feel like I have taken the first step on my path to liberation. I am forever grateful to Ryan.
In my opinion you would be crazy not to work with Ryan, if you are serious about self realization, awakening, whatever you call it. Sure you may also get some health, productivity, relaxation,and mental focus benefits, but you would be significantly selling yourself short, only trying to achieve these things, with a teacher of this caliber. Don't walk. Run!
The first meditation class I attended with Ryan changed my perception of meditation. Within the first 20 minutes he thought me how to recognize Background and Foreground Awareness and step into it. When you know the way, you just walk the steps. This changed everything. I went from ‘going to the gym’ to becoming a gardener.
His extensive experience, his grit for Path and his open approach and communication has made meditation something I full heartedly look forward to now.
Ryan as my meditation teacher has transformed meditation from a static practice to this beautiful adventure, I get to go on with and to Self.
I learned not to get distracted by the various phenomena and all the ‘candy’ the Mind throws at me, while sitting. I learned to open my eyes to where I am on Path and not become infatuated with spiritual narcissism yet see the beauty of every step.
Sitting with him and learning from him has opened my awareness and heart to allow myself to step into the intimate space of Meditation. He has become an anchor and guiding light in moments truly needed to get through the darkness of the Shadow. He has brought a golden thread into my awareness, which I am forever grateful for. Would definitely recommend, but hopefully will not return. ;-)
