Awakening a deeper understanding of your life’s journey

Hello, I’m Ron Velin

Velin Zen Circle and Rock
I’m a life & leadership coach with over 30 years experience. I honed my observational and listening skills from an early age and found that I have a gift for ‘opening doors’ for others to help them find a depth of insight and be more present, intentional and above all, find clarity.
I’m naturally light-hearted and feel that my clients should be having fun while I guide them through their discovery work.
Since 1993, I have been an enthusiastic student of meditation, contemplation and chanting under the guidance of a master.
From 2001-2004, I lived, practiced and worked at a meditation ashram in New York’s Catskill Mountains and served its global not-for-profit organization.
I now live in the Nature wonderland of Vancouver, Canada and regularly engage with the outdoors via mountain biking, skiing, snow-shoeing and hiking. I am also an enthusiastic chanter and hand-drummer  music is an integral part of my personal journey.
My friends & clients appreciate that I have unique insights that come from having lived a life along the “road less travelled” – and they embrace my ideosyncracies!
