Chasing A Different Carrot

If you’re looking for a more hands on approach or for something more outside of the mainstream, please contact me at  My wife and I offer a variety of personalized workshops that we customer build for your specific needs. Our workshops can be delivered in person, via Skype or FaceTime. We also can deliver them over the phone. We work on a sliding scale with multiple methods of payment, including both traditional and non-traditional methods.


The Chasing A Different Carrot Experience

We would like to introduce you to our services for Chasing A Different Carrot. In 2011 we left our teaching careers in order to pursue a simpler living existence. What we have discovered is our choice has opened up doors we never knew existed. Today our life together has depth beyond what we thought possible. Is it perfect? Far from it. What’s changed though is intent. Today we live every day with intention and that has made all the difference.

Based on our experiences we believe we can offer something of great value. Our packages are designed for individuals, couples, families, communities and organizations. There’s a common thread that runs through our work. To grasp that thread we must first come to a place where we can see it. 

Please take sometime and read through the different package options below. One doesn’t have to follow the path we took in order to discover passion for life and liberation. We have different journeys and we bring different skills to the table. Each package has a base foundation but is specifically customized to meet your needs. This step will not be easy but it will be enlightening and provide you with choices you never considered. Maybe it’s time to Chase A Different Carrot?

Possibilities include:

-living with little to no stress

-learning to be more present

-waking up happy

-deeper relationships

-finding community

-investigating the root of our issues

-connecting with nature

-living with intention

In order to begin there of course is a bit of homework. This package includes the book, Chasing A Different Carrot.: A Journey Towards Humanity And Beyond.

Discovery Package:

Discovery is one thing that makes us human. When we are children we act like a sponge soaking in everything. It seems that many of us stop seeking and discovering as we enter adulthood. Instead we fall into the routine of what’s expected of us. The grind of a living arrangement replaces actual life. 

The Discovery Package is an opportunity to step beyond our comfort zones and experience the world from a different perspective. Below is a brief outline of Discovery.

Once you’ve arrived at this point it’s time to shit or get off the pot. Many folks like the idea of chasing a different carrot but the actuality is a different matter.
