I began my spiritual journey at the of age 13, by entering Precious Blood Seminary, a sect of Catholic missionaries "dedicated to creating communities of hope based on the interconnectedness of all...building community through the inclusion of the marginalized, walking in solidarity with those who suffer, and to seeking reconciliation in a divided world." 




It is this foundation that supported me in my 30 year career working with the youth and their families in the Northwest, teaching and supporting those afflicted by violence, conflict, and trauma.  I'm actively involved in training agencies worldwide in effective strategies and communication.   

Over the years, I have strived to continued my pilgrimage of knowledge through Tai Kwan Do, Tai Chi, Cinnabar Meditation, Ifa Religion, Matrix Energetics, and most recently Access Consciousness, bringing all of my skills and awareness to the table and continuing to serve.  


Interview with John H. Jr Ashford

Q:  What is BEING? 
BEING is the constant goal.  Not thinking or feeling but just being present in our world.  Being is awareness, consciousness, of not only ourselves but our inner connectedness to every fucking thing.   

Q:  How did you get to your current state of spirituality?
At age 13 I entered a seminary.  Eight years later I graduated from a Jesuit university.  I studied sacred geometry which led me to the Ifa religion. I have traveled, learned, and participated in many diverse spiritual practices from Tai Chi,to Cinnabar Meditation,  to Matrix Energetics, and most recently Access Consciousness. I have always had an intense desire to search for the truth.  All of my life experiences and gifts have led me to where I am now.  

Q:  What does "healing" mean to you?
Healing is uncovering the true self.  Each session I help peel away another layer, another cover if you will, of you.  At birth we are exposed, but as life happens we gather armour to protect ourselves from pain.  As we recognize this, we can remove the armor and find ourselves again.  

Q:  How do you bring this work to clients?
I facilitate by staying in the question of what is possible? 

Q.  Who are your biggest influences in your life work?
Baba Ogunseye, Bernie Bayard, Dr. Dain Heer, Moo​ji

Q:  What ARE you?
Universal Infinite Being!



John helped me navigate some things that kept coming up in my life. He has a gift for showing the way. After a bars session and body work I felt something I had never felt before. It was me apparently without all of the baggage. I don't remember feeling that before! Thank you, John, for reintroducing me to me.



'I showed up with no expectations. I was looking forward to the session and ready to receive what it’ll create and the possibilities.  It was a dynamic session and it changed so much and has brought so much more awareness into my life about my limitations and to continue expanding out beyond what I know. To this day I recall the energies of that session to contribute to my body, my being, my life and my living. It was a beautiful experience. I am so grateful for his contribution.'



John is one of the most caring, empowering, down-to-Earth people you will find.  His capacity to cut through the crap to get you past your problems is phenomenal.  I highly recommend him.”
