Hi, I'm Everest.
I've been called a life coach, a spiritual teacher, and all kinds of other things. A client's children refer to me as "the genie", which I like the best.
I love dark matter, etymology, and top 40 rap.
I provide guidance for inspiring and influential creatives looking to understand their own personal "why's" in a deeper way. Why are you here? Why persevere? Why does it never seem to be enough? Why are you never satisfied? Why do these negative patterns keep coming back around?". I specialize in trauma, addiction, and self-appointed basket cases.
During the course of our work together, my clients start to rapidly shed the fear based stories and traumas that are blocking them in business, relationships, and personal growth.
I have been teaching professionally since 2012, helping others find deep, sustainable joy as a yoga teacher, health coach, holistic healer, plus an extra ten years of listening as the-bartender-who-just-gets-it in the artist haunts of New York City.
I have four years of experience as as certified Holistic Health Counselor and Nutritionist, have trained in Gabrielle Bernstein's Spirit Junkie Coaching, and have been teaching spiritual concepts professionally since 2012.
I believe that joy is a right for all human beings. Throughout my eclectic career paths, I found that even the most wealthy and successful people I knew struggled with fears of not having enough, not being enough, and questioned the validity of their desires ("Is it okay to want more?").
I have learned through a lifetime of travel, relief work, and personal struggle that the most important gifts in life don't come from the directions we think they do.
If you don't have the inside right, the outside can't fall into place.
Money comes, money goes. People come, people go. Your body changes. Your ideas of success can change. You can find yourself unsatisfied, lonely, tired, and discouraged even when you have achieved all the goals you have set out to accomplish. You can seem to have it all, but if there are fears at large in your heart of hearts, it will never be enough.
Peace can't be manufactured. Joy can't be simulated. Love can't be bought. You can't buy a plane ticket to freedom (but I recommend Thailand).
These are internal states of being that must be cultivated. They can be cultivated freely and you can experience this bliss with time, patience, and practice.
But, if you are unsatisfied NOW, and want to start feeling these results NOW - you'll need someone who can break it down. Someone who can save you the time, trial, and error that comes with flinging theoretical shit to the wall and seeing what sticks.
When you are fully aware of who you truly are, you won't be able to help falling so deeply in love with your life. I am here to remind you of the choices you forgot existed for your life, and question all you know to be true.
