My passion to help others reach their fullest potential is rooted in the constant pursuit of my own self-transformation.

I’ve spent the first decade of my career developing my passions - music, yoga, writing, travel, philanthropy, teaching - with the intention of one day creating a specialized business that could help demystify the self-transformation process for others.

As I faithfully explored every interest, I noticed that what drove me to constantly improve in each discipline was the same desire: a deep longing to radically express myself to the fullest.

I believe this:

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It is not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
— Marianne Williamson

I believe that it’s our cosmic duty (yes, I’m arguing yours too) to each fulfill the highest, most truthful expression of ourselves as human beings - because when we do this, we help to liberate the entire world.

If you believe in this spiritual truth too, then question is…how should we work towards this monumental goal of radical self expression to create FREEDOM for all?

Throughout my pursuit of excellence - playing Chopin scherzos, learning how press handstand, spending 50 days in silent meditation - I’ve realized that the common factor is this: in the learning process, you must employ structure, form, and hard work before you let go.

In the world of spirituality and personal development, I find that people are too quick to express and employ directives like “Let go” or “Trust in the universe”…perhaps because its fun to delve into the esoteric, the mystery of the unknown…or maybe because it’s the easy way to “live out” spirituality.

But ask any Olympic athlete, Grammy nominee, or Nobel Peace prize winner - anyone that’s achieved a high level of self-expression in any field - it takes a lot of hard work…and for a long time!

You do all that you can do. You the do work, you prepare. You get ready for the opportunity to step in. And then you let go.

You do the work. You do whatever is necessary to be prepared for whatever it is you’re trying to acquire, or attain, or accomplish. And then then you let it go. You release it. You release all attachment to the outcome because you know you have done everything you can possibly do.

And when you’ve done everything that you can do, that’s the moment of surrender. Release.

And then if it’s supposed to be yours, it will come to you.
— Oprah Winfrey

Letting go is part of the spiritual process, but it comes into play much later when most of us want it to. You see effective “letting go” when a figure skater takes a breath before his long program at the Olympics. When a doctorate student stands before her professor to turn in her dissertation. When a mother says goodbye to her college age son.

And so I created DEEPER with the intention of de-mystifying the fuzzy process of self development and spirituality. It doesn’t matter whether the transformation is athletic, artistic, academic, or spiritual in nature - the laws of the universe work the same in every situation. You must set meaningful goals and back it up with disciplined action to get potent results.


I say this not to be rigid or pedantic - but because it’s a spiritual truth I’ve mined from almost 30 years of being on the path of seeking the truth. I hope DEEPER inspires you to do the work, to let go when it’s the right time, and to enjoy the journey towards your highest, most brilliant self.

Keep on going,

DEEPER

Andrew, thank you for holding the space for both subtle and deep transformation. I have emerged with a tremendously different outlook on everything and I feel closer my “WHY”. Thank you for the DEEPER Retreat - for creating the space for discovery, connection, exploration, and most importantly possibility.
— Leah Fox, jewelry maker
The DEEPER retreat gave me the clarity to know what I wanted and a methodology to accomplish it - I ended up quitting my job two weeks after the retreat and eventually found a new job that fits me better. I also made life long friendships with like minded people. This retreat was life changing!
