Rob sees himself as a cultivator of self-awareness. Movement and activities that naturally invite introspection are his jam - he is a dedicated Yogi and Steward of the ocean. When you talk to Rob about self-awareness, and why it plays such a central role in his life, he’ll say:
“Being active is how I find my own boundaries. It’s taken me years to develop the presence to be able to sense my quality of experience at any given moment. My intention is to cultivate the ability to monitor my experience constantly, and sweetly, without controlling it. Knowing myself more completely is the key to empathizing with others.
I dedicate a huge amount of energy to empathy, and this is the core of my work in massage. The knowledge of myself and my intention to relate to others has naturally evolved into an ability to bring others to the threshold of their own experience - and invite them to contact what they find there without judgement. That threshold is a place that we all visit from time to time - it’s the source, the seat of our natural potential.”
Rob currently teaches at the Esalen Institute and other educational centers in California.
