As a child, I was different from other children. I could not learn the way others learned. I could not keep up in class or take notes the “normal” way. Often, other children often made fun of me and I withdrew socially. It was during this time that I was preyed upon and left with a burden of unresolved shame. I stopped trusting others and passed on many offers of support by classmates, teachers, family and potential mentors. Counseling was not an option back then and I told myself that I could find my way on my own if I just worked harder. This was a mistake that would cost me down the road.
As a result, I lost confidence and grew frustrated. This, along with other life events caused me to withdraw, isolate and feel less than which led me into cycles of depression that I carried into adulthood. In spite of this, I persevered and became successful in business, but something was always gnawing at me. I was not on purpose. In my early fifties things came to a head when I developed severe health issues that led to a mystical experience. I later lost my job and almost lost my marriage.
As I climbed out of the hole I began realizing that many people have suffered by not asking for help soon enough or when they needed it most. I eventually found my purpose and meaning in life. I found my “why” and pledged to extend myself to others by sharing what I have learned along my journey. I would bring to them the tools and my counterintuitive approach that would enable them to help themselves. I have found my purpose and am doing what is in my heart to do. I am connecting compassionate men all over the globe, mentoring and coaching both women and men, and making a difference in the world. For this, I am grateful.

We called Clay Boykin for help in organizing our new foundation. It is based on a complex subject not easily understood by people who are not spiritually oriented. Clay came to us and led us into a seemingly simple discussion about our subject matter, Kundalini, and what we wanted to accomplish with our new foundation. Finally Clay stood up before a white board and starting adding words and lines and then as we talked he made the lines come together and explained the meaning of each issue. We were stunned. Right before our eyes, Clay not only understood what we were about, but how to communicate it in simple and powerful terms. He also helped us organize a simple and usable business plan to get from where we were to where we want to be. Here’s the deal. Clay is a Marketing Genius capable of taking a group of almost novices to a high level of marketing understanding in a brief amount of time and in a way that feels and seems totally empowering. – Chuck Robison – Director – Kundalini Research Foundation
