I was born in Penticton B.C. and grew up on an isolated ranch in southern Saskatchewan. Some of my earliest memories are of sitting inside ancient stone tipi rings, watching a red tailed hawk circling above and feeling the energy of the earth, the stones, the memory of the old ones and feeling connected to and being one with everything.. From those early memories grew a lifelong fascination with energy and its role in our lives and to my becoming a healer and teacher.

John Beaton is a highly successful business executive, entrepreneur and consultant with more than twenty-eight years of real world, hands on experience in helping people and businesses get what they want. He has worked for small business operations to billion dollar corporations. His project span has been local, national and international.

John has spent his career analyzing, negotiating, evaluating, and collaborating with some of the most profoundly knowledgeable and respected people on creating alliances. By learning, analyzing, and reducing key elements to their core principles, John knows what makes alliances perform more effectively, more productively, and more profitably. He has been a senior consultant on projects were others have failed to obtain satisfactory results, or no results at all.

John’s roots begin where he was raised, on a farm. John knows what it is like to “go it” alone. His father was a commissioned cattle buyer which helped John gain first hand insights on being an entrepreneur at an early age. John has a love for small business and his passion is to see them succeed. These businesses and their owners are the foundation of a community, and he loves to give them skills and tools they need to increase profits and achieve their biggest business and life goals.

At the top of John’s list of tools are Shaman tools. “Everything a person does is based on what is going on internally”. If there is uncertainty or turmoil going on inside a person, they are not being true to themselves and they cannot be true

to others. When people get clear about themselves, get focused on their passion, learn to use their intuition, watch out and see how synchronicity operates to make their goals become a reality.

John currently lives in Calgary, Alberta Canada with his loving wife Nancy. He takes his passion for synergy and harmony by learning from nature. “We can learn much from nature. Think about it, if there were no plants, there would be nothing else on this planet”.

John is continuing his learning by gaining first-hand knowledge from Shamans; who have learned and worked with nature for hundreds of years. The Shamans use a term called “Ayni” which means to be in perfect balance with your surroundings. John is now helping others bring Ayni into their lives.
