John grew up in Portland. He found his way to Clearmind in 2011, and has since completed many of the workshops as well as the first year of the online Practitioner Training Program. A theater major in college, John's various lives have included four years as a massage therapist (specializing in Visionary Craniosacral Therapy), ten years in the feature film industry, and ten years as co-owner of a residential remodeling company. He is currently the Company Director of a custom design and fabrication company in Portland.
For John, at its core, the work of Clearmind is about forgiveness of oneself. Being gentle with and accepting himself is his daily challenge, and his gift to the world. It's a gift he offers with a healthy dose of humor, fun, and (when necessary) silliness.
John feels blessed to have the opportunity to help bring the work of Clearmind to the world, and is grateful to have found a calling in building the community in Portland.
