"When I focus on the beauty and love in all things there is a deep place I access, I call my souls purpose." ~D.Sabo
In 1990, I began guiding for outdoor behavioral health programs, followed by envisioning and co-creating Soltreks in 1997. Today I guide individuals seeking meaningful opportunities through Deep Transformational Coaching, wilderness expeditions, retreats, sailing and cruising adventures, and self awareness workshops using photography & video. Sea kayaking and canoeing are also offered in the Boundary Waters Wilderness Canoe Area.
I am a Licensed Captain of the sailing vessel S/V Imagine, certified as a Deep Coach with the Center for Transformational Coaching and Living, a Certified Wilderness First Responder with the Wilderness Medical Association and a self taught photographer and certified videographer.
In 1984, I had one of the most pivotal experiences of my life during a transformational seminar called the Awakening Heart. It was during this 3.5-day workshop that I experienced an inner knowing of truth and love. This experience truly opened my heart and eyes to the love, beauty and oneness all around.
With this personal awakening and my growing love for nature and photography, I realized my path was to make a difference, give a voice to the voiceless, appreciate nature and how we are all connected. I realized my purpose was to guide others to see their gifts and potential, especially those who limit themselves with false messages (e.g., I don't belong or I'm not good enough), and to assist them in rediscovering their truest self.
"Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads." ~Henry David Thoreau
