Chris Elms

Relationship Advocate.
Co-Active Coach. Author. 

I offer myself as a catalyst for:

  • Life in the present moment, with particular attention to the 90% of our body below our neck.
     
  • Almost full-time happiness.
     
  • Clarity about your life's mission. 
     
  • Commitment to your REAL SELF and the life that you really want to live.
     
  • Getting unstuck when your relationship "goes to shit".
     
  • Having sex everyday.
     
  • Food & Exercise and "energy" practices for a life moving toward younger and more vital and more real every day. I take zero medication. I have never been to the hospital as a patient. I ride a bicycle several miles a day, not to "exercise," but to get places without a car, and to delight in nature and my body.

I'm passionate about working with others who wish to transform their relationship to how they live in body, mind & spirit. With 40 + combined years of experience in bodywork, brain-plasticity, therapy, teaching, transformative coaching, public speaking & writing, my mission is to share my knowledge with others and assist them in accessing their most fulfilled life through coaching, bodywork, and more.
