About The Author

Ashton’s mission in life is to empower others to live more meaningful lives through a deeper understanding of themselves. He began studying yoga as a young boy at the age of twelve, while already immersed in martial arts since he was five years old. In 2006, at the age of twenty-six, he left for the Far East and spent the next six and a half years traveling the world, learning from yogis, holy men, shaman and anyone else with insight into the nature of reality, convinced he was on the path to become a monk. Everything changed when he met his eventual wife, Kristi, and they had a beautiful daughter together: Sequoia. Being a parent also changed Ashton’s perspective on living in the world. He moved back to the United States with the intention of making the world a better place for this and future generations. He now lives with his family in Grass Valley, California where he, in addition to teaching locally, creates online courses and podcasts to share what he has learned with the world.
