I find it difficult these days to answer the question “What do you do?” It is a traditional opening when people meet, yet for me, because I no longer identify myself by what I do, or by my achievements, possessions and goals, it has become a harder question to answer. “I experience Life, I am Life experiencing Life” would be my intuitive response, thought not one easily given in our current cultural norm.
My life is rich and varied. I am and always will be a father to our 11 children, and a partner to my wife Karen. I play the role of Guide, Mentor and Coach to people all around the world, helping and guiding them to find the same richness in their life that I experience in mine. Helping people find that inner Joy, Love and Peace we were all born with, and learning to live Life without the stress and pressure that the human story has taught us so far.
Karen and I work together in our coaching business, coaching people in groups through The Coaching Café, as well as individually and in family groups through our work with blended families. Our first book, E =OB2 led me on a lifetime journey of discovering/remembering about the ONEness of human energy. I have also become a Reconnective Healing Practitioner, and a student of everything that is our human Energy.
My work is also taking me into the area of corporate wellness coaching, helping work groups (businesses and corporations) to develop a stress free culture of common growth, learning and evolution.
We humans are living in a fish tank full of dirty water, and it is making us sick. “Instead of trying to manage our sickness as best we can, we simply need to change the water.” (Robert Young) That water is our energy. The electro magnetic energy of our individual bodies, the groups we belong to, from family to friends, work groups, communities, nations and humanity as a whole, including our planet. We are living with unhealthy energy that we have the ability to change, and change it we must if we are to survive.
I live with my family in Canberra, Australia. Originally born in Austria, I have become a member of the global community, working with the SHIFT Network to be a part of the conscious evolution of humanity that is gaining pace every day. “I have rewritten the story of my own Life, from the one I was told while I was a child, one that told me we are all separate people, separate tribes and separate nations, living in fear of each other, feeling the need to protect ourselves, to accumulate and hoard everything in case others take it and we miss out; a story now changed and rewritten by an awakening of my consciousness, an understanding that we are all part of ONE energy. Like a single drop of water in an ocean, we are both unique and part of the whole. The flow of our energy affects the energy of the whole. In order to change the water in the fish tank of humanity, each one of us needs to change the water in our own tank, the flow of our own energy, which we all individually influence. We are all part of the universe and it is part of us. “We are Life experiencing Life.”
My experience of Life is all about people. All my learning and growth comes from other people. “While I work with people, helping them on their journey of learning and discovery, in reality, each of them has something for me to learn.”
I have experienced the feeling of eliminating Fear, Anger and Sadness from my Life, to live a Life without stress. “My consciousness is in a state of Love, Peace and Joy. My purpose in Life is to share that energy with the people who touch my Life. To guide and mentor people to discover that which is theirs from birth, the pure Love, Peace and Joy of this experience we call Life.”
