Jonah is a facilitator of healing and awakening with many tools he has collected on the journey. He is a Somatic Experiencing Practicioner, Depth Mindfulness Teacher, Biodynamic Craniosacral Therapist, Polarity Therapist, Wilderness Therapy Guide, Ceremonialist, Writer and Photographer.
Jonah founded Earthways Journeys in 2017 as a home for his love of the Land and for helping people heal through the natural wisdom of both the inner and outer landscapes of Body & Earth. The Soul of his work comes from the lived experience of his own life-given initiations and a journey of disillusionment with modernity which awakened a root of ancient remembrance. The journey led him to the modalities, teachers and ways that ultimatley became the foundation of his offerings.
At the heart of his healing work is an activist spirit, knowing that as people heal from trauma in connection with the land they learn to love the land and become protectors of the Land they love.
In 2019 Jonah founded Proyecto IJA'TZ: Semilla de Futuro, a Grassroots Organization and Education Project to protect the Indigenous language of the Tzʼutujil Maya community in Guatemala.

a breath beyond our own,
the strange, the bewildering
destiny of things;
and how we might
find ourselves placed,
defeated by greater loving winds
we are found;
