Rich is one of two ISTA Global Organizers. His focus is in the area of Conscious Relating and Sexual Healing. Organizing retreats for ISTA is his way of making this healing available to the masses.
Along with participating in numerous ISTA trainings (Level 1, 2 and 3, and Practitioner Training), Quodoushka, Shamanic De-Armoring, Tantra and other training, and apprenticing with ISTA Facilitators, he became certified as a Cuddle Party Facilitator, as a way to introduce new ways-of-being to the conservative Utah community, where he raised his family (5 grown children and 8 grandchildren). One of his focuses is helping people from religious backgrounds, especially his Mormon heritage, to free themselves from the limiting "Box" of shame, control, guilt, judgment, and scarcity, to embrace their freedom to express and feel and live according to their individual truth. Rich has unique insight and understanding for people making the transition from ultra-conservative cultures, having served as a full-time missionary, "High Priest" and leader in his previous religious life, as well as a Master Mason (Freemasonry).
Starting and continuing to run a successful Record Label for over 30 years, Rich enjoys applying his years of music business experience to organizing ISTA trainings. He organizes ISTA Trainings and other events under the business name Happy Valley Workshops and Events.
Within the word "Facilitator" is the Spanish word "Fácil" (easy). Rich is a facilitator in many ways, offering opportunities that make the path to healing and alignment easier.
