To get to the highest tops, one must explore the deepest depths. Nobody knows that better than Daniel Gutierrez.
Once a high-powered executive and in-demand consultant who graced the covers of Latin Business, Cypen and Color Magazines, Daniel realized that there was more to success than a 7-figure earning potential. As President of PRIMER, a prestigious national leadership organization and an advisor to the Department of White House Personnel for the Obama Administration, Daniel was a highly regarded and deeply revered leader. Though Daniel was listed as one of the “Top 100 Hispanics in America” along extraordinary individuals such as Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, actor Edward James Olmos and CNN’s Soledad O’Brien, something was still missing.
Daniel clearly mastered the outer game. But his intuition told him that to feel fulfilled, he must also master the inner game.
To everyone’s surprise, at the height of his career Daniel dared to leave it all behind, and decided to dedicate the next chapter of his life to becoming a Master of Mindfulness. During the past 10 years Daniel has led nearly 30 quests to the heights of the Machu Picchu, the depths of the Amazon and the top of the Himalayas. After the boardroom, now he has been guiding entrepreneurs and experts in deep dive mindfulness immersions. Though mindfulness is a lifelong practice, Daniel has become known for giving life-altering strategies in as little as 60 seconds.
In the midst of Manhattan chaos, Daniel has been turning cubicles from a place of stress to pads of serenity. When facing extreme pressure, executives now go from high-strung to highly productive. Even Wall Street had to admit that when you want to climb to top, there is nothing like following someone who is as comfortable in the boardroom as on the backbone of a mountain, having lead thousands to the greatest heights of true success.
A beloved mentor and sought-after motivational speaker, Daniel was featured in the documentary Luminous World Views as one of eighteen world-renowned thought leaders in the area of transformation and leadership. He is a bestselling author, who is excited to release his fifth book, Radical Mindfulness.

Jennifer Hough is a seer, alchemist, author and Facilitator of Awakening. Her ability to ‘see’ people holographically evolved as a result of running one of the largest Holistic Nutrition Clinics in Canada (The Vital You) from 1994 until now. That ability evolved from medical intuition such that she could witness individual lives, histories and the collective societal status in holographic form. This was a far cry from her University Studies in Economics and Accounting! It was quite an Awakening for her, because she could never have imagined that her life would be given to interpreting multidimensional information and using it to assist others to transcend their past effortlessly and then flourish in their current lives.
Jennifer founded The Wide Awakening in 2008 to assist us all to remember more deeply the reason we are here, based on the information that she sees and continues to evolve. Her programs include Spiritual Adventures all over the world; her flagship program “Get Out of Your Own Way,” now in 7 countries; “Embody Your Innate Abilities,” a powerful recent addition; and, for her advanced students, six months of “Flight School.” Jennifer loves to hike, climb, mountain bike, snuggle with her dog, and eat the culinary creations made by her sweetie, Adam, a professional chef. (He is the chef on many of her retreats.) Jennifer is the author of several books, audio series and Weekly Awakenings. She and the company are based in the Toronto area.
