What is the Meaning of Your Life?

My name is John Records.

Have you thought about these big questions?
  • What is the meaning of your life?
  • Do you just live for a handful of decades, and then it's over?
  • Why not just be selfish, do whatever you want, and grab whatever pleasure you can?
What would your life be like if you understood who you really are, who you have the potential to be, and you navigated from the grounded place of love? Are you ready to let go of old baggage and set yourself free?

I can help you transform your life.

In 1980 I desperately turned to meditation and related practices to deal with intolerable stress from work and global trends. At times I've spent 16 hours a day or more training my mind.

In almost 40 years of intense personal transformational work, I've learned many potent spiritual secrets that often are transmitted in person from teacher to student.  To support you in your growth and to help you build a better world, I'm offering the best of these secrets here.

Over the decades I’ve helped thousands to have better lives, and have taught meditation at Oregon Health Sciences University School of Nursing, several social work schools, and at the JFK University Graduate program in Integral Studies. I've also managed a Bay Area nonprofit helping homeless people, worked as a hospice chaplain, and have been successful in business.

I'd love to help you find the purpose of your life, discover who you really are, create yourself as you want to be, and support you in building a better world.

A rare opportunity for you.

After helping thousands in person, for the first time ever I'm offering convenient online courses, creating an opportunity for you to dive deep in the comfort of your home.
My online courses help you to:
  • find immediate peace
  • discover who you really are
  • create yourself as you want to be
  • find the purpose of you life
  • make new friends
  • connect with an online community of like-minded people
  • build a better world 
Just as a caterpillar can become a butterfly and an acorn can become an oak tree, you have the potential to become an extraordinary expression of humanity at its finest.

Are you ready?

People are saying

John embodies integrity, trustworthiness, and awareness, dedicating his life to serving people in need. John has provided profound support for my self-development -- with his insightful guidance my experience of oneness, confidence, and love has increased.  I enthusiastically recommend his workshops and other offerings.
Heather Larkin, MSW, Ph.D. Associate Professor
John is a gentle and skillful facilitator. I benefited greatly from the process he introduced me to. The work helped me in the moment and gave me tools to continue to renew and rejuvenate. I would recommend his workshop for any and all helping professionals.
Pat Landrum, MS, Executive Director
For several years, John Records has skillfully worked with me in my spiritual quest and in managing major life transitions. Foundational to this has been his guidance in developing and integrating a meditation practice into my daily routine.  Each of the 7 shortcuts John so beautifully describes have helped evolve my meditation practice into something that is enjoyable and readily available to me.  I might not call them shortcuts, as they are powerful and effective tools that are a gift to those who choose to use them."  
Vic Cocowitch, Organizational Development Consultant
John Records has a unique way of helping me to integrate all aspects of my life and self.  Through our work together, I have been better able to integrate my mental, emotional and spiritual life and health. The effect of this is that I feel whole after a session. Simply put, John is a healer, a natural leader and a gift in all the many lives that he touches.
Nikki Cuthbertson RN, Reiki Master and Yoga Instructor

More About John Records

Where I live
I reside at 6,000 feet on the side of a mountain in western Colorado, with no traffic lights for 30 miles, and enjoy getaways to urban areas and spicy hot chai.

Are we similar?
I'm a spouse, a parent, a friend, and a man who has fewer years ahead than behind. I've had many ups and downs and challenges in my life.

What makes me happy
I'm happiest when I'm helping, and my broad life experience helps me to relate to people from all walks of life.

A special place in my heart
I have a special place in my heart for those who've been hurt in their lives, since that has happened to me.

Why I like to help
I've found that by helping others, we help ourselves to heal and find happiness.

Meditation has sustained me
Meditation and related disciplines have sustained my growth for almost 40 years, and enabled me to face immense challenges in my life's work supporting people in their growth and transformation. I've taught these practices at various universities, congregations, homeless shelters, and yoga studios.

My professional life
As the Executive Director of COTS (Committee on the Shelterless, in the Bay Area) for over 20 years, I helped over 20,000 of people to find homes and develop the foundation for full, rich, and loving lives.

As Chaplain at Hopewest Hospice, I assisted people in their graceful and loving transition beyond their physical form.

How I invest my time
My main work now is  supporting individuals and groups in their growth so that they can help to heal the world and find fulfillment. I hope to reach and help thousands with these courses.

Where does the money go?
I'm fortunate to have enough money for my and my spouse's needs.
The proceeds of my courses pay the people who help with the work, and and also support the Love in Action movement.
