As both a guide and subsequent mentor to me, Brian has been a significant source of wisdom and insight. I am extremely grateful for the depth and clarity with which he has helped me with my soul work and life’s journey. He is one of the most sensitive, compassionate and spiritually grounded guides and mentors I have ever had.

If you can’t resist the alluring pull of the Underworld, ask Brian to stand at the mouth of the cave and guide you down. His unparalleled skill at mirroring, questioning, supporting, and challenging coupled with his fierce love of the wild, imaginal world will help you break into new depths of identity and meaning.

I have had the privilege of Brian’s presence and support during and following an 11 day Vision Quest he co-led. The quest and many months since have been pivotal and messy as I wander to uncover previously unrecognized sub-personalities and pursue my soul’s calling. I am grateful for Brian’s understanding, acceptance, and sometimes humorous insights. This is not a journey I want to navigate on my own and I can think of no better ally.

Brian Stafford’s Soulcrafting offerings have re-enchanted the natural world for me. I live, work and play with nature as a background. However, except for some short sunset contemplations, nothing compares to the numinous experiences I have each time I pass a symbolic ‘threshold’ on one of Brian’s Soul Walks and Wanders. I commune ecstatically with a passionate blowhole or tenderly embrace a nurturing palm tree, among other encounters. It is like returning again and again to my magical early childhood, where the heart and mind were innocently open… This is what I bring back to the sophisticated world of humans after each offering, along with Brian’s deep insights to each of us that spring forth from his sweet, attuned presence.

“Brian’s dedication and experience as a guide and mentor is a beautiful gift for those exploring the mysterious of Soul. His kind guidance and nurturing nature offer a unique way to journey inwards, offering healing and wholeness, and a means to find our unique place in the world.”

Brian Stafford’s Soulcraft guidance has helped me recover lost treasure hidden in the field of my own wild psyche. His mentorship has both inspired and held the space to bring my own soul gifts more deeply into the world. I am so grateful for his wise, humble, and visionary leadership which continues to inspire me!”

On my second soul walk, I walked through the portal that Brian suggested and began wandering. Although I was in a place I had been to many times, it was as if I were seeing it for the first time. Everything was vibrant and alive. Then in my wandering I came upon a path I had never seen before. As I started up the path I kept my eyes out for a mysterious being that Brian suggested we might find. I climbed up a hill in the jungle and out onto a precipice, and that’s when it happened. I came upon two magnificent birds that took my breath away. I stopped and we had a conversation, a soul to soul communion, and when at last I returned to the “normal” world, I knew that something profound had happened, that will continue to work me, and I was grateful. Upon my return, Brian effectively mirrored this walk as a metaphor for deeper changes occurring in my life.

Brian possesses powerful, unique insights into the human psyche, anchored by a deep and thorough understanding of Western medicine, but filtered and enhanced through a deeply nature-based soul-centric lens. This combination yields subtle insights and expert guidance I’ve not experienced with other soul guides.
John, 46, Denver, Colorado
On my very first Soul walk I encountered something that has eluded me for quite some time…I encountered peace, a space of tranquility as I sat by the side of the river writing a letter Brian had invited us to write. My peace and quiet were mirrored by the crocodile that glided 10 feet in front of me, 12 majestic feet long quiet and elegant. I did not feel scared or anxious – just more peaceful to be in ‘his’ environment , observing with no agenda nor any need for anything further in this experience.

Brian guided me over a six month period that climaxed with a personal vision fast. I have never found so much clarity in my life. He guided me into grief that I had avoided for 20 years, and he guided me into my deep joy for the natural world and for poetry. If you ever get a chance to be guided by Brian, I highly recommend it. He is skillful, playful, authentic, and deep-seeing – beyond who you think you are and to who you are really meant to be.
Max, 48, Scientist, Germany
Brian was a co-guide on a program in New Mexico that has left me with a deeper understanding and embodiment of who I am at a soul level. I actually did not really believe that the world was deeply soulful, but I do now. It is undeniably so. I know it in my bones, in my dreams. My heart is enflamed with love for the world and my place in it. He is an amazing listener, deeply intuitive, and skillful in his guiding.
