Nate

Nathaniel ∼ Personal Fitness and Consciousness Transformation

Nathaniel (“Nate”) is a self-taught individual versed in the languages and disciplines of philosophy (formal metaphysics, epistemology and theology), psychology, chemistry, and nutrition. He has had over 12 years of hands-on experience in the fields of personal training, weightlifting, strength training, calisthenics, proper bio-mechanics, and overall sport training. His main motivation and goal in life is to assist in transforming and evolving the current global consciousness, which recognizes ego-separation and intellectual-power as the be-all, end all, into a collective consciousness, where universal principles are perceived as being the true laws of existence, and where the majority of human beings have both a healthy sense of unity consciousness (Oneness) and individuality consciousness (Uniqueness). Ultimately, he hopes to be a catalyst to an emerging world that recognizes that humans and all life are but differentiated bits of a unified Divinity, yearning for self-transcendence and self-actualization, i.e., an awakening world of peoples dedicated to serving and helping each other “walk” the path of never ending enlightenment.
