The Zen Commando Ayahuasca Retreat offers a journey of seeking, healing, and recovery. We provide a safe and secure environment where you can safely detach from the world and immerse yourself in Nature while learning about your true identity. During the retreat, you will gain a deeper understanding of the relationship you have with the environment, others, and your “shadow self.”   The retreat is designed to help you rebalance, cleanse, and learn. This is not always an easy process. Our goal is to set you up for success by providing you with the information, tools, and environment to ensure you have a safe, secure, and enlightening experience.

I served in U.S. special operations for over 20 years, five of those in direct line of combat. After military service, I spent time in the corporate and private trenches of Silicon Valley, California, where I learned how to operate in a new, technology-driven battlefield. Now, based in the serene jungles of Costa Rica, I guide transformative and life-changing experiences at Camp Zen Commando, a total mind-body adventure camp.

"My purpose in life is to help you succeed in any battle you may encounter in today’s world, whether at home, in public, or in the workplace."

I’m a distinguished combat veteran, successful entrepreneur, writer, high-ranking endurance athlete, long-distance thru-hiker, survivalist, and problem solver. All curriculum and courses taught are created by me and unlike any other, you’ll ever see or experience. Let me take you to the next level!!!  More Here
