Brian is a wild wanderer, teacher, mentor, guide, writer, storyteller, speaker and agent of cultural evolution. 

 

As a senior guide and mentor, and with a commitment to each individual’s wholeness, depth, and mystery, Brian mentors individuals with a playful fierce compassion toward a deep connection with Earth, Self, Mystery, and Calling. He is the co-developer of the Wild Mind Training Program and a skilled guide in the realms of wholeness, dream, deep imagery, shadow, and the emotional body.

 

A native of Colorado, Brian frequently wandered the Rocky Mountains and descended into the Utah canyonlands. 

A graduate of Wheaton College, Brian went on to train as a pediatrician, adult, child, adolescent, infant and perinatal psychiatrist and rose through the ranks of academic medicine to an endowed chair in psychiatry at the age of 44.

Then, he heard the call to adventure - his Jonah moment - and left medicine and academia to discover and serve the deeper mysteries of the world and the psyche. 

 

He currently serves as Co-Founder of Seminary of the Wild. He also serves as a Trainer, Board Member, and Director of Strategic Initiatives and the Wild Mind Training Program for the Animas Valley Institute. He also directs Wilderness Is Medicine, the California Teachers College, and Earth, Soul, Purpose.
