Julie and I are both teachers and healers. Over the years we have helped many people find peace, completeness and healing. Here are the testimonials to show our work on a personal level.
The partnership I have with Personal Tao is the single most important and influential piece of my journey through this mid-life phase of my life. The team at Personal Tao are caring, understanding, and incredibly insightful.
I was utterly lost when I first started working with Casey. Personally and professionally. In working with him, I've been able to take what has been a real crisis and turn it into a fundamental transformation.
If any of you have the opportunity to do a retreat with Casey and Julie, DO IT! They are gracious hosts, fantastic teachers, and good friends. It was very special to be able to ease into the next phase of my life in Hilo. And the scenery is pretty good too.
After my first conversation with Casey, I knew I'd made the right decision. Now, eight months later, I am grateful to Casey for teaching and guiding me through an excruciating life experience. He's helped me to live each day with grace, compassion and kindness. I've learned the power of exercising non-judgment. Most of all, I've started to listen to myself and value living a life that is authentically mine. I came to Casey with the hopes of saving my marriage. Today, I'm working on growing myself so that I can be strong and peaceful no matter what challenges come my way. Speaking with Casey is a life changing experience
I was lost. What I found in Personal Tao was acceptance, strength and direction. I don't have all the answers, but with assistance I've learned to start asking the right questions. The insights I've gained may be both saddening and comforting, but both strengthen me to walk the path ahead with confidence and grace. What have I discovered through the guidance provided from Personal Tao? Myself.
Casey has the ability to make complete sense out of every obstacle and has a way of showing me how to navigate through life with grace. He has helped my husband and I to understand and see each other in a way we never have before and has guided us to a place of new found friendship, allowing the space for individual growth and mutual respect.
In the beginning, talking to him was the only thing that made me feel better. He makes you feel cared about and never judged. He always knew exactly what to say to me and I started to believe that maybe I wasn't losing my mind or myself after all. And when I was ready, he gave me the tools to release my fear and face my life again
Julie is an absolutely amazing teacher. I've been working with her for over a year. In that year, she's taught me movement meditation and I'd previously been unable to meditate in any way. She's also helped me develop spiritually and find my path. Julie is very personable and doesn't judge. She tailors her teachings to each individual so that they work for him/her. I highly recommend her!
Casey is a knowledgeable life coach that can help you work through tough interpersonal relationships at work or at home. He has years of experience as a top engineer so his thinking is very logical. His Taoist teachings will give you the freedom to create your own successful strategies to challenges.
I gladly recommend Casey as a Taoist mentor, a business and career coach as well as a personal counselor. I am grateful for all Casey's teachings and support to date. I see a long and sustainable future in his modern approach to Taoism.
Casey is a kind and thoughtful life coach who helped me in a time of need. He helped me to grow through a very challenging time. I would recommend anyone in a time of mid-life transformation and growth to use Casey's services. His website makes a great introduction to his philosophy and work.
I met Casey the day I opened his book ‘Personal Tao’. He is so unique in his understanding and delivery of the Tao that it deeply resonates with our own uniqueness. He is a poet of life, with a sharp vision of what holds things together, a dramatic pragmatism, high hopes and real profoundness.
He is poet, a teacher, but not a guru, for he never leads or claims to know the truth. He simply, gently, opens the gates to oneself. To ‘’work’’ with Casey is to design and shape life as it unfolds. A rare privilege.
Julie is an amazing teacher, delivering expert knowledge with kindness, creativity and a deep listening for her student's lives and dreams. Julie provides a judgement free space generating trust and empathy. I can highly recommend her as a spiritual teacher and guide.

Julie allows participants the solitude they need to explore their inner dance journey, and at the same time she is able to connect participants together as a group…Julie, thank you for your heart felt commitment to Conscious Dance!
- Wow…thank you so much for a great two hours of music, movement, and joy! It’s such a treat for me to be able to just open up all the channels and move to music; grateful. I haven’t danced that freely…possibly ever. Thank you for creating the space in order for me to be able to release.
