Brian has many years of experiential learning seeking out experts in all fields to share ideas and 'play' - meaning increasing perception & clarity for all.

Brian: "Since I can remember, my favorite word is why? This seeking to know through experience led me to a JR A Hockey Championship with Orland Kurtenbach, a great hockey coach mentor, the person who taught me 'what it takes to win' and to a realization: that what I think I know is but a drop in the bucket. Thus the ever-evolving student emerged, learning new skills to better train athletes and coach hockey, plus search for new mentors...which led me to Juerg Feldmann. Juerg introduced me to leading-edge technology and 'how to play at a new level' - integrating technology, health, and performance. I then took a so-called left turn and immersed myself in Classical Hatha Yoga at the Isha Ashram in southern India to learn eastern Yogic ideas on the physical, mental/emotional and energy. Back in North America, I began a 2-year search for a 'new Juerg' to work share ideas, argue, assess and ultimately to share with all - I found not one, but two :) Aaron Davis & Patrick Estes"
