We respectfully acknowledge that we are living on the treaty and traditional Territory of the Mohawks of the Bay of Quinte (Tyendinaga Mohawk Territory).  We offer our gratitude to the people for living in relationship with us and allowing us to live with you.  We further thank and honour you for your position of rightful caretakers of this land.  As well as for sharing with us your teachings about our earth, and how to live in right relationships.  With gratitude and peace we strive to acknowledge, honour, and as much as is possible to live according to your traditional teachings and culture.

We love and are very thankful for you all.


(Note: Dave does NOT teach Mohawk culture) 

Our mission is toFREE YOUR SPIRIT and partner with you to create your BEST LIFE.

It is a widely known secret that the world's most fulfilled, productive, influential, and visionary people live from their spirit.  Our specialty is partnering with you and the Creator to transform your life.  Do you feel like you are living a life not your own, or that something is missing you can't quite identify - or even worse that you are living without a spiritual anchor or power in your life, want to change that?

Hi, my name is Dave (aka Barefoot Dave or Ojiig) and I'm a Spiritual Elder/Advisor (a Spiritual and Life Coach), and for over 35 years I have successfully guided and coached thousands of people just like you to live their OUTSTANDING LIFE with spiritual conviction, passion, and power.

We are uniquely out of the box and specialize in helping people with counterculture, creative, and/or Creation/earth aware passions.  We also help re-covering religious Christians.


Being a traditional spiritual elder I DO NOT work for money - we prefer a GIFT; this is a traditional sign of respect.  The gift can be whatever you feel is appropriate.  We've had people bring food, coffee, and traditional tobacco, sage, sweetgrass or other plants.  Please do not bring invasive plants or store bought tobacco.  If it is easier for you to bring money - it will be considered a donation not payment. 

If you are struggling and unable to bring a gift please don't let that stop you from contacting or visiting us...the gift is just a sign of respect not a requirement.

If you are seeking organizational or professional consulting/training we will require payment (contact for further info), UNLESS you are an indigenous person or organization.
