Hi, I’m Josh! I can’t wait to help you achieve a high flow lifestyle.
I’m a peak performance and flow state coach, entrepreneur, researcher, creative, and husband and father. I love guiding people toward their most fulfilling, happy and High Flow Lifestyle.
Living in Japan for 13 years has given me a balanced perspective in regards to Eastern thought and Western science. I have a number of Japanese cultural experiences with becoming fluent in the Japanese language, the martial arts and Japanese spirituality.
I blend some of those experiences and practices with science-backed approaches rooted in positive psychology, neuroscience, and sociology. My initial studies at The International Center for Studies in Creativity at SUNY Buffalo State College introduced me to Creative Problem Solving, where I further followed my passion in Japanese culture and Sociology at Osaka University, trying to understand how people form their identities and find their purpose in life, as well as develop individual and group flow within cultural traditions.
I have undergone coaching training at the Flow Research Collective with Steven Kotler and other experts which has really helped me solidify my path in guiding others to reaching their peak performance, finding their Why, and harnessing flow in their daily life.
Japan has taught me many things about flow through various cultural terms like Ikigai (your reason for living, purpose, WHY), Zanshin (calm awareness), Shoshin (Beginner’s Mind) etc., that anyone can benefit from so I include some of those concepts in your flow training as well.
Relatable, Educated, Proven
I refer to it as a lifestyle because contrary to common belief, flow and being in the zone is not an On or Off switch, it’s more like a volume knob. And being in a flow state, has lasting affects for days after the experience as well as heightens your overall creativity. Bringing flow into your lifestyle on a regular basis can have a huge effect on your wellbeing as well as your optimum peak performance.
