Hi, I'm Adam Michael Brewer. Professionally speaking I'm a Bootcamp Instructor (Creator of Bootcamp Connect, Yoga Teacher & Meditation Coach (Creator of 3-Minute Meditations) l've been in the Wellness space since 1990 and flat-out love what I do. My intention for every client I have the privilege of working with, is to inspire, educate, support and facilitate lasting change as it relates to getting them from where they are to where and who they want to be. Personally speaking, I'm a partner to my beautiful love and soulmate Liz and a father to our ex- quisite 14-month old son Skye. We live in Los Angeles about a 1/4 mile from the beach with our 2 dogs Nalu and Faith.
I love soccer, guitar, being in nature, creating silly songs to sing to Skye, laughing out loud, meditating, yoga, working out, taking ice-baths, breathwork, rock-climbing, surfing, contemplating the meaning of life, boking up at the stars at night, Pearl Jam and Justin Beiber just the same (yes I just said that in public), watching Grey's Anatomy and The Marvelous Mrs. Masel, stories of redemption, pancakes, the aroma of a summertime BBQ, and Justin's Dark Chocolate Peanut Butter Cups.
My road to becoming a self-proclaimed kick-ass Dad was a rocky one. In fact I resisted it with every fiber of my being. So much so that It lead to a full-on Psychotic Break. You can read all about it in my blogs...The Making Of A Conscious Dad, My Existential Crisis & The Meltdown and The Recovery. I can tell you this; the darkness was necessary and essential for me to find the Light that exists within all of us (come into my "lightness")and to experience the totality of the gift of living as a human "being". So many blessings have come from my descent into the dark. Not the least of which is that I know I have found my calling.
The real "crazy" part about my story, is this; that which I was resisting the most was that which I was meant to do and be on this planet. I can say to you without a shadow of a doubt in my body, mind and soul, that I was destined to be a Dad. And not just any dad, but a Conscious Dad. A dad who is peaceful, passionate, patient, present and playful. Throw in being kind, understanding, strong, flexible, forgiving, compassionate and supportive and you've got what I aspire to be each and every day for Skye, Liz and life.
Do I fall short from time to time? In fact a lot? You bet I do. And you're gonna hear about it. Because my intention is to be as transparent, honest, real and raw with you. For far to long, I kept so much of who I actually was just out of frame so I could appear strong, stable and "flawless". It's my belief far too many men do this, and it's a recipe for disaster. It's time for men, in particular Dads, to be the way-showers for our children, as to what it means to be emotionally intelligent enough to be strong yet soft, firm yet gentle, driven yet flexible, stable yet vulnerable, confident yet humble. In short, my goal is to create a new face for fatherhood.
I hope you'll join me in this pursuit. Looking forward to getting to know you. Cheers, AMB
With the birth of my son Skye, the idea of Conscious Dads was also born. Conscious Dads is all about empowering fathers with practices for conscious evolution as a parent, partner and presence on the planet. CD will offer Workshops • Online Courses • Retreats • Clothing.
Tools for TRANSFORMATION & EVOLUTION will include:
-Movement (Fitness, Yoga, Foam Rolling)
-Cold water immersion
Our mission is to create a global community of dads who are looking to create A New Model Of Manhood, and specifically Fatherhood. One where we live in awe, ever-evolving, free to become, moving our mindset from me to we, having a passion for conscious evolution; living with an interest to see things as they are not as we wish them to be, unflappable & rooted yet expanding; to be man enough to admit your fears yet to take action regardless and not be afraid to “fail”; to be a Dad who is human enough to stop fighting fire with fire, rather to be like water (adaptable, fluid); to be Service-oriented, less stubborn & more flexible; to live as men who aren’t afraid to cry, who listen more than they speak, who are spacious, safe, joyful, expansive, and conscious.
And why is it important to do this work? So that we raise "integrated" children who are kind, caring, loving, confident, generous, resourceful, compassionate, helpful, empathetic, playful, creative, peaceful, inclusive, and philanthropic.
