Coach InfoAbout Me:
Since experiencing a life-defining psychedelic rebirth in 2008, Ehren has pursued the mindful study and use of sacramental entheogenic substances as a cornerstone of self-actualization, spiritual growth and servant leadership. Over the past 13 years, this path of inner discovery has evolved through a life devoted to the wisdom of Ceremonial practice, high performance training, event curation, and facilitating consciousness expanding experiences.
After a decade serving as an award winning event producer and high performance team builder, Ehren is now devoted to supporting the self-actualization of integral leaders, innovators and creators in personal and professional evolution. He specializes in supporting clients to take courageous ownership of their boundless capacity to heal, transform and LIVE a choice-based purpose-filled life.
Ehren’s services range from 2-6 month transformational coaching programs for individuals and couples. Each path starts with the careful implementation of a personalized holistic wellness protocol. This includes a neurological assessment (Braverman test), a nutrition review (Genova test), a core values snapshot, a mental and physical health intake, and an Entheogenic Education deep dive - to support and track your Arc of developmental evolution. Programs may include a Rites of Passage Experience &/or Micro-Dose Protocol. Journeys are anchored through a multi-week integration process known as the Holistic Model for a Balanced Life. Each path is tailor-made in service to the full expression of one’s truth and purpose.

The SpArc Coaching services range from 2-6 month transformational programs available for individuals and couples. Each path starts with the careful implementation of a personalized holistic wellness protocol. This includes a neurological assessment (see Braverman Assessment below), a 360 degree Life snapshot (see Holistic Model for Balanced Life below), a mental and physical health intake, and an Entheogenic Education deep dive. This is to establish a foundational baseline to support and track your Arc of development and growth. Programs may include a Rites of Passage Experience &/or Micro-Dose Protocol as a catalyst to accelerate and expand. The insights and realizations gleaned are anchored through a multi-week integration process grounded in SMART & METTA (see below) impact goals. Each path is fully attentive to your unique Arc and desired outcomes.
The SpArc coaching programs are all about creating measurable and achievable results. Yet data is only part of the picture. Each client learns firsthand how personal shifts in choice and orientation can dramatically transform your life. Yet an even more important discovery is why those shifts are so important to the soul. Whether it’s career success, creating healthier relationships, finding more buoyancy and inner peace in the day-to-day, or a fusion of all of the above – you are encouraged to track changes with outcomes that are SMART (see acronym below) in their design.
Yet life isn’t all about the destination. With this fact firmly in mind, the SpArc has created a second key category where goals can be measured to ensure the integrity of our aim. What lights you up with meaning? What inspires the extraordinary in you? What are you willing to push harder for... than you ever have in your entire life? What type of change is so core to your being that just the mere pursuit brings a state of gratitude and reverence to your life? These are the deeper questions we work toward together with our METTA goal focus. (see acronym below)
Specific (simple, sensible, significant)
Measurable (meaningful, motivating)
Achievable (agreed, attainable)
Relevant (reasonable, realistic and resourced, results-based)
Time-bound (time-based, time-limited, time/cost limited, timely, time-sensitive)
Meaningful (Soul Nourishing, Healing, Affirming, Your Highest Calling)
Extraordinary (Visionary, Unbound, Evolutionary, Beyond Simple Measure)
Tenacious (Requiring Focused, Dedicated, Resilient, & Resolved Effort)
Timeless (Journey as Instrumental as Destination)
Achievable (Agreed, Attainable)

My ProcessIntake Process:
Mental & Physical Health Intake Screening
A mental & physical health screening for safety and readiness is the first step to exploring if a Psychedelic Journey is right for you. Our screening explores mental health conditions that are contraindications for a safe experience including: Bi-Polar, Schizophrenia, Dissociative Identity Disorder, Sociopathy or narcissistic personality disorder. We also explore if you are currently or have recently been prescribed an SSRI, Lithium, or SNRI for a depressive or mood disorder – which doesn’t automatically exclude partaking, yet will lead to many important considerations for safe progression. A physical screening will mainly focus on heart health and any known illnesses, disorders, or conditions related to adverse reactions to physical or mental stress. In addition, ongoing addictions to alcohol and substance abuse will be closely explored to ensure physical and psychological safety & readiness for the intensity of an immersive experience.
Our preparation guidelines are based upon the Holistic Model for a Balanced Life first introduced by Francoise Bourzat. Together we take a 360 degree snapshot of your current body, mind, spirit, community & environmental orientation. We assess physical rest, nutrition and exercise; mental stimulation sources like social media, politics and drama vs. regenerative & nourishing sources of engagement; the existence & role of spiritual & mindful practice; community & leadership impact circles; and your relationship to the environment. All with the understanding that shifts in behavior in orientation to these five dynamics of life creating healthy practices & patterns can lead to a much richer & sustainable plant medicine journey. We also review the (4) stages and (5) traditional states of a psychedelic experience.
Integration in many ways is the most critical step of the journey facilitation Arc. Without a way to capture and channel the depth and breadth of insights gleaned from an experience, due to their dramatically novel nature in one’s life, they are quite apt to puff away like a fading lucid dream. Following an experience, we spend time capturing as many critical insights from the experience as possible. This is then cross-referenced with the preparation & intention notes, as well as with insights expressed and captured during the journey itself by the facilitator and client. A series of activities, actions, supportive modalities, and supplements will be provided to help retain and sustain these insights, weaving them deeply into the fabric of your daily orientation for lasting personal growth and transformation.Overview of Protocol:
