In 2014 Cody watched as his father and close friend were swept over a 100 ft cliff by an avalanche – his own life still in balance on the precipice of that cliff. While they all survived, the impact of the event left a wound on Cody’s psyche that the tools of traditional psychotherapy he had been trained in were inadequate to heal. Determined to find a way back to himself, he set out on a journey.
From ancient ceremonies in the jungles of Peru, rites of passage in the remote islands of British Columbia, indigenous healing rituals here in Colorado to immersions in yogic and meditative lineages and a re-education in graduate level courses; Cody faced his own darkness head on and explored every healing modality he could find. Now he is walking those lessons back into the world – for the good of all.
“If the doors of perception were cleansed everything would appear to man as it is, Infinite.”
— William James
Combining ancient wisdom with modern neuroscience, Cody’s approach to therapy is a unique offering for those seeking to go beyond talk therapy. If you are called to do the deep work – to break free from old patterns, heal the core wounds, and create the depth, meaning, and purpose you have always craved in your life – then your journey begins right where you are.
IT BEGINS HERE AND NOW.
Cody is also the author of an international K-8 Mindfulness-Based Social & Emotional Learning Curriculum, Empowering Minds, and the former Executive Director of the non-profit, Empowering Education. He has been a frequent speaker on the topics of psychedelic-assisted therapy, mindfulness, social & emotional learning, and trauma. He continues to engage life full force as an avid mountain biker, rock climber, backcountry skier, yogi, fly fisher, and most recently as a student of movement culture in the lineage of Ido Portal.
Cody’s deep purpose is to create a more compassionate world by helping others to heal the cores and wounds of their heart and connect with their own purpose.
