Coach Jeremy (Priest Gui Yan)

Dear Seeker,

You’ve made it this far! Great job in taking the first step toward positive change in your life. After becoming involved with personal growth coaching several years ago, and choosing the path of the Warrior for myself, I began teaching what I learned and saw that Inner Warrior Coaching could help so many others achieve the lives they wanted as well. This became part of my life’s work. I also study and perform scientific research around the evolution of the human mind, in order to understand what is innate to human behavior and thought and ultimately to understand the limiting mental structures that we must transcend. I am continuously inspired and committed to helping more seekers discover their own inner warriors and break through the fear-based barriers they have unconsciously created in their minds. If you’re willing, I hope to guide you toward your dreams as well. May you find peace and adventure!
