Rick is an incredibly gifted, heart-centered and intuitive guide who has been called to serve the transformation of the collective towards higher consciousness. He holds space with the greatest of care and integrity. Listening deeply through the open and empathic space of heart wisdom, Rick draws on imagery, memory and the indigenous wisdom of soul to offer his people perspectives into a wider lens through which to view their journey towards embodying their wholeness.I first met Rick when he was a student at Purpose Guides Institute (PGI). Right away I sensed an intentional commitment to show up fully and authentically. Upon graduation, Rick stayed on as an intern at PGI and joined me as a mentor in training in holding the journey of a new group of students seeking to understand their purpose through connection to soul. I immediately knew that, rather than a hierarchical holding of our group, Rick and I would co-collaborate as equals in the creation of our offerings for the group experience.As an apprentice to soul, Rick has devoted himself to residing in the modalities that are true to his own soul journey. He brings to his work a wealth of knowledge of how to engage with soul imagery through the use of music, movement, visualizations and creative expression, which he offers with joy and gratitude.Anyone seeking clarity on their journey towards wholeness would be well-served by Rick’s guidance. If you are ready to commit to the journey of soul discovery and integration, I absolutely recommend Rick.

My life feels fuller and more vital and vibrant now in comparison to before I started working with Rick. I feel that I know with even greater clarity now what I am truly passionate about, what aspects of this life bring me joy and meaning, and what type of person I want to be in this world. My time in the program has made me feel positive and optimistic about the path that I am on and the person I truly am.

I also feel that the personal development and transformation that I have experienced in these recent months has been noticed by friends and family, and has helped me relate to others in an even deeper and more complete way than before.

The mentoring sessions I had with Rick were amazing. In our sessions Rick was very intuitive, insightful, observant, and kind. He had a great sense of what practices/exercises were best to work on with me, how to open me up creatively, how to connect with my true self and creative “inner child”, and he led me through some very inspiring guided meditations/visualizations.

This is such deep and rich work and Rick is truly an inspirational guide. For someone who has done alot of soul searching, therapy and group work over the years I found Rick to be skilled in a whole new way. This work feels like the new paradigm and Rick is for sure on the frontier of this, a shining light with a gift to guide others in to connection with their own inner light.

Rick holds an excellent space, he is professional, sincere and a most compassionate witness. He is kind and curious, gently challenging and my experience is he truly has your back and believes in you 100%.

This programme has facilitated me to press the reset button in many ways, to shed some accumulated layers and to get back in touch with the vibrant truth of my soul calling. I have welcomed back in the artist part of me, the dancer, the wild woman. I have stood in my vulnerability and acknowledged the latent courage that exists within this place of showing up in truth.

Rick was a fantastic guide, always welcoming me to our sessions as I am and where I am, mentally and emotionally. He was a great source of comfort and support to me. This program brought up some challenging realizations that were unfortunately bringing me down to a space of negativity and self-loathing. But Rick always encouraged self-love and helped me work through my inner critical voices.

He gave me a sense of connection and understanding, empathy, and patience. His smile and warmth is genuine and comforting, and I truly enjoyed every session together. I looked forward to our meetings each time.

I came to this program because I felt lost on my career path, and I have gained something infinitely more valuable – love and compassion for myself and a sense of belonging to this world.

Rick Is the most inspirational guide and person I have ever met. He creates a safe, held listening space absolutely infused with soul. This makes it so easy to access soul yourself. His reflections, his meditations, his feedback, all contributed to enabling me to open to my heart and soul space in an incredible way.

Without Rick and his beautiful capacity to honour the individual, this journey would’ve been very different. Rick embodies this work completely, his truth, passion and genuine commitment to his soul journey makes him absolutely the perfect person to guide others on their journey.

Soul quest was transformational, soul centric journaling a revelation and the morning miracle absolutely fundamental for setting and holding the space. I feel more focused on tuning in with my soul before making decisions and I am called to being in nature much more. Tuning in in this way has made it possible for a new business idea to evolve and is enabling me to clear space in my week just for soul and I.

I loved how patient Rick was with my limited tongue (Spanish speaker). He was able to read my silences, interpret my gestures and helped me to express myself better through making paintings and reflecting on it.

I see my future more focused. My vision is clearer of what I want to do. I have less doubt. I know I have fears but I recognize them, thanks to the sessions with Rick.
