We work with individuals, couples, and families committed to authentic living.


Most of our individual clients have been successful in their vocational life. They’re often in a position of influence and power, with even greater growth potential. They seek more self-awareness, self-actualization, and perhaps self-confidence to step boldly into their life purpose.


We work with couples in varying stages of their relationship. Using a medical metaphor, relationships may be broadly categorized as having full health, a head cold, bronchitis, or pneumonia. Our work is not marriage or relationship therapy. We don't try to heal the relationship or even hold the relationship together. Our goal is to have each person take 100% responsibility for the state of the relationship (200% together). Only then does the relationship have the potential to be authentic and enduring.


Many families suffer from ongoing dramas cast as a sad and sometimes comical mix of victims, villains, and heroes. The key first step in escaping the melodrama and restoring authenticity within the family is for one family member to step out of the drama and into a place of responsible maturity. This person – sometimes the patriarch or matriarch, sometimes a son or daughter – is normally our entry into the family system. We support this person in maintaining a grounded presence, and then guide other family members into and through the crucial conversations they have avoided with one another.

Only when each person takes 100% responsibility for family harmony does the family dynamic have the potential to be authentic and enduring.

  • Sabrina Kay
    Chancellor and CEO – Fremont College
    “Life is full of uncertainties, and it's difficult to wander through the fog without a guide. Jim Warner is brutally straightforward and cares deeply to get to your core to help you clear the fog. He has several tried-and-true methods for facilitating communication with your inner self and changing the course of your thinking forever. A two-day retreat with Jim jump-started my personal journey of self-discovery and reflection.”
  • Andrew Daly
    General Partner – Gore Peaks Investments, LLC
    “Lasting personal transitions are difficult at best and often feel overwhelming, consuming extraordinary amounts of time and energy. My Personal Transformation Retreat with Jim allowed me to explore my strengths and shadows in a focused, supportive environment. I returned much better prepared for my next great opportunity. Jim’s support has continued beyond the retreat, anchoring the effectiveness and the value.”
  • Michael Brown
    YPO – Barbary Coast
    “Crazy as it sounds, my first three-day retreat with Jim changed my life. With what I learned from Jim, I have a whole new framework to think about my life purpose, the relationships in my life, and how to be truly happy.”
  • Chris Haase
    YPO – Nevada
    “Jim has helped me shape a vision of how I'd like my life to turn out, how I'd like to be remembered someday by my family and friends, and what really matters most. He's also helped me piece together a map to that place. I now have a reliable compass for choosing a route that best suits my personality and value system. Our work together has been a real blessing.”
  • Arvid Albanese
    YPO – Florida
    “Work hard, play hard was my motto for my first 40 years. I had a successful business and a lot of fun, but my relationships were shallow. When Jim invited me to explore a ‘life beyond myself,’ I was intrigued yet realized I was clueless as to what this would look like. But in some strange way I knew it was a missing link. Today, with Jim’s guidance, I feel I’m a much more grounded person. Although there are times when it feels harder and less fun, I feel I’ve become more joyous, giving, and vulnerable. And it feels great.”
