I guide people towards their own well-being and wisdom.

For any area of life - work, relationships, creativity, self-understanding - a breakthrough is within your reach.  

A simple way of understanding my approach is the formula

"PERFORMANCE IN ANY ASPECT OF LIFE = CAPACITY - INTERFERENCE."  

Each of us has unlimited capacity.  And each of us, being human, has a tendency to get in our own way. 

Together we'll explore the possibilities of what life looks and feels like when we get out of our own way and let our wisdom emerge.

LESS EFFORT, MORE RESULTS

A martial arts student went to a teacher and declared he wanted to learn the system, he was devoted and ready. How long would it take? The teacher replied: “Ten years.”
The student, a bit impatient and not satisfied with the answer went ahead and said: 
But I want to master it faster than that, I will work very hard, practice 10 or more hours a day if necessary. 
How long would it THEN take? 
The teacher replied: “Twenty years.”

I appreciate this story for many reasons, but most of all because it reminds me that success and happiness are not necessarily about hard work, and that sometimes “hard work” can be an obstacle to success and happiness. With insightLAB's approach, you are not required to do lots of work on yourself, or with others. You may be surprised at the ease with which changes will arise.    

The good news is that it isn’t about effort, but rather getting out of the way and allowing great ideas and inspiration to emerge.

“There is more in us than we know if we could be made to see it; perhaps for the rest of our lives we will be unwilling to settle for less.”
— Kurt Hahn, founder of Outward Bound

At the heart of my approach to coaching and mentoring is a dialogue that involves sharing a powerful understanding that can lay bare the principles of a graceful life, often hidden in plain sight. 

insightLAB doesn't dispense tips and techniques that you need to remember and practice, but rather bedrock principles from which your own wisdom will emerge.  And you don't need to take anyone else's word for the power of these principles; you will see them in action in your own life and work.

A free initial consultation is always available and can help you decide which format and program is best for you.

 

CHOOSE YOUR FORMAT

Those clients wishing for an in-person experience, a more accelerated program, or an inspirational couples or family experience can enroll in a 3-day "re-boot" retreat in the mountain resort town of Crested Butte, Colorado, or can arrange for a series of visits for regular sessions.

More commonly, I meet with clients around the country primarily using video conferencing. This is a surprisingly effective method and is very much like being together in the same room. 

CHOOSE YOUR PROGRAM

Together we'll craft a custom program that meets your needs and fits your schedule, or you can choose from one of the introductory programs below.

 FREE INITIAL CONSULTATION ALWAYS AVAILABLE

INTRODUCTORY PROGRAMS

All introductory programs provide 4 private sessions, and are available to individuals, couples, and families.

Enjoying the Ride

Transformational conversations about family dynamics

Despite its occasional and rich rewards, day-to-day parenting can often be frustrating or simply overwhelming.  Even in the most loving families, challenges can arise which strain relationships and create tension.  Sometimes we can fall into patterns with our family members that don’t bring us closer together.

Through a series of conversations that reveal a new way of understanding our experiences, and what is often hidden in plain sight, I can help families find greater ease and grace in their everyday lives.  Past clients have reported feeling greater intimacy with their spouse, more empathy for their children, and a growing sense of inner peace.

Grace and Grit

Developing resilience in the face of stress, challenge, and change

Throughout our lives we encounter periods of great change, big questions, turbulence and uncertainty. Through a series of conversations that reveal life’s “operating system,” I can help people find ease and grace that can carry us through the highs and lows of life.  Using an educational and coaching model, rather than a therapeutic one, I support people to discover the source of their ups and downs, moods, and thoughts, and how they can change effortlessly.  The net effect is a very empowering and uplifting experience that typically leads to enduring change.

Stress Less

Understanding the inside-out nature of life

Stress is exhausting and tends to bring out our worst rather than our best.  An understanding of the inside-out nature of life can help anyone significantly reduce stress and find a new, more enjoyable baseline in their lives.  In this program, we'll explore the central role of "state of mind" in one's experience of stress, and how a greater understanding of state of mind can effortlessly result in much less stress, no matter the circumstances.

Relationship Reboot

Finding greater harmony and overcoming conflict

What if the key to happy and fulfilling relationships wasn't about hard work?  In this program, we'll explore simple ideas with revolutionary implications for relationships.  If your relationship with your spouse, a parent, or child, is causing you anguish, or has simply lost its luster, this program is for you.

Wisdom Way

Finding answers to the big questions in your life

Is your work-life balance way out of balance?  Are you at a crossroads and wondering what to do next with your career or your life path? Instead of giving you a fish, I'll teach you how to fish.  Huh?  Well, it's not a course on fishing. It's a powerful exploration of how to access your own wisdom, which is always available to you, and is connected to something much larger than just our individual selves.  We'll talk about the many ways in which we get in our own way, and the magic that happens when we begin to notice that all that stands between us and the answers we are seeking is to get out of our own way.  If you are interested in results, this is the place to look.

CUSTOM PROGRAMS

Custom programs provide all the benefits of the introductory programs, and offer unlimited support, including additional resources and opportunities.  A free initial consultation can help you decide which program is right for you.

3-month, 6-month, and 12-month unlimited programs 

RISE retreat - 3 days of "Renewal, Inspiration, and Sustenance for Everyone" 

My discussions with Jason have had a profound impact on my life. I was clearly ready to make a significant change but I could not have done it without his guidance.

I am more consistently kind to myself. I have deeper patience and compassion for my kids. I have connected further with my wife while also giving her more space – an amazing balance which we treasure. And I have (almost) effortlessly, with Jason’s support, begun to tap into wisdom and compassion in my professional life and other personal relationships.

It is clear to me that Jason’s thoughtful and provocative guidance is a passion for him. Being in this conversation with him is like serious play with a joyful trusted advisor who shares wisdom in simple yet profound ways.”
— Abe from Oregon
Working with Jason has provided me a new level of ease in my life. Learning to recognize thoughts, the space between thoughts, and the quality of my thoughts has allowed grace, inspiration, and more creativity to show up in my life. In many ways I’ve found empowerment, confidence, boundaries, and compassion along with unexpected delightful opportunities. I so appreciate working with Jason. He is great at clearly communicating the process, and his knowledge of the 3 principles and his generosity in sharing how they can be applied to every area of life feels uplifting and encouraging.
— Jessica from New York
“Simply through thoughtful, open conversation, Jason has showed me how to move through the world with ease and grace. I’m not perfect, and that’s ok, because accepting that has allowed me the freedom to engage more meaningfully with the world and the people around me. Thank you, Jason, for helping me to become the man, father and husband I always knew I could be.”
— Jeff from Colorado
“In each of our conversations, Jason has been able to point me towards the wisdom of the Principles. Not only has my understanding deepened, there is also a ripple effect that has brought me greater optimism and peace.

I invited Jason to facilitate workshops at the school I lead. He was very effective in guiding others to their own insights and to seeing a hopeful new understanding of the real source of their stress and anxiety. Jason worked skillfully with both adults and teens, all of whom recognized his mastery and deep compassion.”
— Janet from California
I want to extend my deepest gratitude to you for your thoughtful services. You led us through a meditative, deeply insightful, and reflective dialectic with each other and with ourselves...all in service of this beautiful institution. Thank you for opening your heart and your mind to us and with us.
— Yasmine from California
