The Mindfulness Experience 8 Strategies to Live Life Now 

Every moment is a sacred moment.  We give you tools to take care of yourself by creating Mindfulness Experience “ME” moments to live a better life through self-care practices like breathing exercises, plant-based nutrition, and stress management techniques. If you listen and follow instructions, you will see results.

It doesn’t matter if your schedule is busy–you still have to breathe, and we’ll make sure these little changes help you live better and feel better over time. We want you to be the best version of yourself because we know that when people are their true selves: They feel more relaxed, less stressed out or anxious, happier, + fulfilled in every aspect possible.

Our services include individual coaching for clients who want practical advice and guidance to change and better themselves. The ongoing sessions, workshops, and one-to-one present moment assessments help to teach you new techniques and strategies, so you don’t have to go through change alone!

We focus on the science of breath

The Latin root word for breath is SPIR, as in Spirit, Inspire, Aspire, Perspire, Respire, Expire. It’s how we breathe our sweat and prayers into the world, as well as regulate our nervous system. It is an essential tool to co-regulate with others, reduce stress, or get our energies flowing.

Using the breath, we help you to apply mindful leadership over life. Everyday, people breathe life into their workplace, and homelife, to make better decisions, and create experiences. We offers the coaching, counseling, and consulting to apply the resources between work, home, family and self.

Harm Reduction

Our harm reduction coaching is endorsed by and supported by the VHA, the most extensive medical program in the world. Our programs focus on helping people find a path to wellness that works best for them rather than relying on traditional recovery models. We strive to create personalized plans incorporating cognitive-behavioral approaches, mindfulness experiences, lifestyle changes, nutrition, exercise, and more. Our goal is to equip our clients with the tools they need to make positive choices and promote sustainable change.

Mindfulness experiences are a cornerstone of our harm reduction programs—we work with clients to develop healthy coping mechanisms through activities such as meditation, yoga, or breathwork. By learning to be present and mindful in their day-to-day lives, clients can identify triggers earlier and react healthier. We also guide sustainable lifestyle changes such as reducing alcohol consumption or abstaining from drugs altogether.

We emphasize an evidence-based approach that incorporates nutrition advice and physical activity recommendations tailored for each client. Through our programs, we seek to empower those seeking help, equipping them with the knowledge needed to live lives full of purpose and joy without relying on substances or other harmful behaviors.

Eating Awareness

With Eating Awareness Training, (EAT) we are dedicated to helping people make the right choices for their health and wellbeing. Our programs provide Mindfulness Experiences as a tool to help individuals reconnect with themselves and see, hear, taste and bring awareness to eating practices. Our goal is to help learn how to use our senses to understand our bodies’ needs and nourish ourselves with healthy alternatives.

With evidence-based practices such as awareness training, mindful eating, and making conscious choices, you will learn to make better decisions when it comes to what you put into your body and mind.

Our program offers more than just the tools needed for mindful eating – it helps participants create meaningful change in their lives by providing them with knowledge on how food affects your mental and physical health, developing positive relationships with food rather than negative associations, uncovering deeper issues behind why someone might be using food or substances as a coping mechanism, experiencing mindfulness techniques that help cultivate self-awareness and understanding, building resilience when faced with challenging situations or emotions. Additionally, we offer an array of resources from nutritionists/dietitians/therapists who can assist in further developing healthier habits that are conducive for personal growth and long-term success.

Biofeedback, SoundSelf, and More

We provide our clients with all the latest advances in neuroscience; we can now help our clients transform by using a mindfulness-based system specifically tailored to them.  We use wearable technology that looks at your physiology, which you can use to monitor brainwaves and heart rates. With this information, we can help you to implement programs explicitly aimed at improving focus, calm and resilience when facing stressors from work, sports, studies, etc.

SoundSelf Digital Therapeutics

We offer Psychedelic Assisted Journey Guidance for individuals, administrators, and centers.

SoundSelf is one of the interactive technologies we use to facilitate transpersonal states of consciousness, as you might otherwise enjoy through meditation training and entheogen use. It helps you activate vagal tone by engaging a biometric feedback loop between your voice, body, and your breath. SoundSelf is often used to support psychedelic therapy as a preparation and integration tool, but it is also a powerful adjunct for other mindfulness-based transformative practices.

SoundSelf can be used for:

  • Preparation for Psychedelic Therapy

  • Integrating Past Psychedelic Experiences

  • Removing Charge from Undesirable Emotional Patterns

  • Activating Unitive States of Consciousness

  • Quieting Mental Chatter

  • Improving Sensory Awareness & Embodiment

  • Improving Sleep

  • Improving Creativity

How it Works:
SoundSelf works by inducing a state change by modulating respiration, visual gaze, and interoception–all within a dynamic, interactive flow state, for reduced rigidity of prior beliefs, greater psychological meaning-making, renewed self-efficacy, and heightened awareness of voice and embodiment.

The results are improved vagal toning and a balanced sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system.

We help you move from the ordinary world to the extraordinary world and then back again. The diagram below is the hero’s journey, or monomyth. 

The Hero’s Journey Spiral © 2019 by Thea Cooke

The three basic parts of a Hero’s journey are the separation, where we set out on the quest (perhaps reluctantly) seeking adventure; then there is an initiation which happens when we arrive at our destination – the psychedelic journey – and finally return back to the consciousness of the natural world.

Client Testimonials

Keith Fiveson has made a significant positive impact on the wellness of the BDI team.  Keith led us through weekly mindfulness meditation sessions throughout the pandemic that resulted in having our team feel more connected with each other, despite the challenges of working in a remote environment.  Keith’s teachings educated us on the science behind mindfulness while providing a much-needed respite from the daily hustle and bustle of working for a busy marketing agency.  I received very positive feedback from our employees on a regular basis about Keith’s sessions.   I fully recommend Keith’s services to any organization looking to incorporate mindfulness into an employee wellness program.

Steve Etzler

Keith is a fantastic mindfulness teacher and coach! Working with Keith on projects for clients was always fun and impactful. He would conduct a discovery call to understand their needs and tailor his curriculum to meet them. This led to many experiences clients rated highly. It was a total delight to watch Keith do his magic and help “center the room” into one calming vibration. As an added bonus, work teams walked away refreshed with tools to help center themselves as needed. Thank you for your wonderful partnership, Keith!

Dan G.

First off I would like to say how grateful I am for even here, able to write a review for such a wonderful person. Throughout my 10+ years of struggle with addiction, I finally decided to reach out to someone for help, I searched for hours trying to find the write person to contact. I finally game across Keith’s bio where I found I was able to relate to the same philosophies as Keith. Keith was very professional, helpful and understanding from the very first phone call. After I initial call, I decided to get a package of sessions that would change my life forever. Keith helped me not only with dealing with myself being comfortablw with myself, letting me know it was ok; that everyone has issues no ones life is perfect, but he helped jump start my new life and career. Without him I honestly don’t know if I would be where I am today. If you can’t decide on weather to speak to someone or if you are iffy about speaking to someone, trust me just give it a try, you have nothing to lose and I can bet my Last dollar Keith will help in more than you’ll ever know. I highly recommend him. Thank you again Keith for all you have done.
