I was really good at sports growing up having played basketball, football, and volleyball in high school and again volleyball at the Division 1 level in college for Loyola University Chicago.
I studied, mechanical engineering for two years at Northern Illinois University, then transferred to Loyola to play volleyball and graduated with a degree in environmental studies. I ran an exterior home painting business the summer after I graduated, and moved to Ashland, OR to pursue my interests in alternative medicine and metaphysics. I needed to heal and to reflect.
I grew up in a suburb of Chicago as a normal kid. I loved playing sports, playing with friends, and I didn't really think about anything, because I knew what I wanted to do ALL the time. There was never a moment, until the age of 13 or so that I even realized I existed so to speak. I was running on automatic. I then had some experiences that really woke me up to my existence.
I made enough money running a summer painting business after college to finally start the life I wanted to. I moved to Ashland, Oregon, for a little library there, called the Rogue Valley Metaphysical Library. I spent many years reflecting, contemplating, reading, doing yoga, meditating, enjoying nature, and finding peace in my mind, body, and spirit. Living in Ashland, next to the mountains, in the backyard of the two of the most inspiring and selfless people I know, in my travel trailer, with an open field in front of my door, with the perfectly brilliant star lit night sky, next to a small creek, at the perfect temperature in the middle of the night, while only hearing the crickets and running water in the background was the best and most incredible time of my life. It soothed my soul in a very light and enriching way. It was very healing. I lived my own personal dream. And it was perfect.
After I finally rejuvenated myself to the point where I could work again, I decided to move to the bay area to pursue my new goals.
Since then dived deeply into developing a career in the solar industry and have become very interested in creating financial freedom for myself.
I am a very open minded, soulful, reflective, and passionate guy. I know peace in mind and body. I'm really searching for a girl who considers herself "initiated" in the body, mind, and spirit. I'm looking for a girl that has been on a healing journey herself and in some respects considers herself a shaman of sorts. I'm looking for a young and sporty modern woman shaman to go on this healing journey with......
