Brian’s mission is to rediscover, restore, and reclaim the voice of the soul in our culture.
In 1979 Brian was watching a pre-Olympic special highlighting a cyclist who was preparing for the 1980 Moscow Olympics. As the 20-year old Brian watched this elite athlete an overpowering urge surged through his body and he knew without a doubt that he wanted to this, needed to do this, and was going to do this. Within three months he had quit college, moved back to the cycling-rich state of Colorado, and had bought his first Italian racing bike. Brian began winning races immediately reaching the National Championships in both his second and third year of racing.
A pattern was set. Ever since that experience Brian has followed an often unconventional path. To the outside observer it may appear that Brian has trouble following a steady and predictable course. But, Brian has nurtured and learned to listen to an inner voice, the voice of the soul, as he describes it. His life is less dictated by conventional pictures of financial security, home ownership, and the often elusive American dream. Brian has learned to follow an inner compass that is always pointing to spiritual north.
Now with years of experience in the ministry, hospice care, juvenile probation, and organizational development, Brian has developed an ear for listening for the underlying spirit of things. He has a sharp eye for discerning the sometimes subtle and agitating clamoring of the soul. His calm presence allows him create a safe space for others to voice what they intuitively feel, but have not been able to articulate.
Through writing, speaking, pilgrimage travel, consulting, and leading conferences and retreats, Brian ignites the hidden passions, breaks through the complacency, and exposes the deepest yearnings of people and organizations. Whether speaking to a church group or riding his bike over mountain passes, he seeks to honor and expose that often ignored voice that calls to us from the deep.
