I'm Brandon and I am on a journey to give meaning to my life and help the people around me! 

Two years ago I had a spiritual awakening that rocked my world. Before this I was not spiritual nor religious even though I could see the value in it. For six to eight weeks I lived my life happily, freely, compassionately, lovingly, and appreciated the beauty of life and everything in it. I may have even reached out to some of you and you can attest to the changes in my demeanor that I experienced. As quickly as my soul was reminded of it's purpose here on Earth it faded. I didn't realize it at first as I was still talking the talk, but no longer walking the walk.

My life took the shape of its former and I slipped into a depression I had yet to experience thus far. The more I searched and reached for that glorious feeling of being alive the further it seemed to recede. I went back to bad habits and used every excuse to drink my pain and sorrow away. As we all can agree on, drinking does not make these problems disappear and can even add more confusion to life.

This past March I was involved in my first car accident spurred by an evening of drinking. Most people may not view this incident as a positive one, but please remember that everything happens for a reason and this is without exception. As I stepped out into the night air to examine the scene and make sure the other driver was ok, I made a vow to myself that drinking had to be excised from my life. I began attending AA before the courts ordered me and I completely accepted that I had a problem with alcohol. For years, friends, family, and loved ones urged me to stop, but while I was in denial there was no stopping me. Thankfully this occurrence opened my eyes and there was no denying it anymore!

Within 30 days I had worked all my steps. My spiritual self returned and I am now so happy again. I do my best to celebrate everything single moment in life and my days now feel like weeks. I have come to love and accept myself and even embrace the time I have all alone--which is almost all the time. Before, I would run to the bottle to escape life. Now I can't wait to wake up and LIVE! Every day is a blessing and I will not waste another minute of it on negative thoughts.

So to the point! I have found and enrolled into a 2 year mentorship program at The Keeney Institute for Healing. I have to do this for myself to build a very solid foundation in my spirituality. The awesome thing is is that I can in turn not only help myself, but be able to help and encourage all the people around me! It's a win-win!

What I am asking of you all is for help funding this endeavor! The two year program is mostly online, but throughout the course there will be four trips to Tucson, AZ for a 5-day spiritual retreat. The course itself is $4000. Each trip to the desert at the C.O.D. Ranch with airfare, lodging and food will be roughly $1000. In total, that comes to about $8000. 

Any and all donations will be absolutely appreciated! I would like to thank you in advance for helping me strengthen the foundation and fast track me on my spiritual path!

Much love,

Brandon
