“How does one go about inspiring others? We first need to inspire ourselves. I like to think that whatever message I share with others is nothing more than a message that I myself need to hear. My feeling is if this message is helping and inspiring me, perhaps there are others going through the same insecurities and asking the same questions as I am. It also helps me to remember to let go of the outcome. Whether people actually listen and learn from it should not have any impact on what I say or do. As long as I know that what I say comes from the heart and that it helps me grow then I am happy. LEAD BY EXAMPLE.” Eli Scheier

I really can’t say enough good things about Eli. I’m just grateful he came into our lives! My husband and I wanted to build better communication between each other and work on our friendship again too. Life can get a little hectic especially with a baby on the way and Eli helped us slow down and revamp how we thought about each others concerns and how we handled disagreements and our emotions. We really appreciate that he operates from a place of love and meditation. We don’t feel judged at all and it’s such a calming space where we truly feel safe to say how we feel. We look forward to sessions with him because we’ve already seen such a difference in the way we communicate with each other, the gentleness this has brought into our marriage, the love it’s brought into ourselves as individuals, and we can’t wait to learn even more. We highly highly highly recommend him. Thank you, Eli.
