Meet Allan Kehler,, B.Ed., B.PhEd.

Connect at a deeper level

Hope for me is… everything. I used to say to myself: “One day I’m not going to have to fight so hard.” I experienced a lot of dark nights, but I always held on to the fact that one day things are going to get better.

I can look back at that point in time when I was active in my own addiction and battling with mental illness. I had no money, no friends, and I was given one month to live. If someone from my past would have come up to me and said: “Hang on Al, one day, you will have a beautiful wife, four healthy kids, a career you love, and a home not a house,” I would have never believed them.

Even in my darkest moments, it became clear to me that if I wanted something different, I had to do something different.

It was an extremely hard lesson to learn, but I eventually understood the power of vulnerability. I learned to put a voice to my pain, got rid of the victim mentality, surrounded myself with people who brought me up – not down, and ultimately embraced hope.

I believe that the only reason why I’m still here today is to carry a message. I know that there are a lot of people who are suffering from the same or similar challenges that I faced. It has become my life’s mission to share my story in hope that it will shed a positive light on the journey of others.

If you’re interested in discovering how we can create a space where people are seen, heard, and supported, let’s talk!

Values to live by

Authenticity

“I would rather tell the world who I am than pretend to be someone I’m not” – Allan Kehler

Being transparent, open and honest in all conversations. Not hiding behind anything (not even a smile). Being real and relatable – especially in tough situations. Developing a trusting and long-lasting relationship with people. Helping people knock down barriers so they can show up as their authentic self.

Passion

“Whatever your passion is, I promise you’ll be able to make a living doing it.” – Dr. Wayne Dyer

Speaking and living with passion. Taking a moment to pause, self-reflect and feel alive. Carrying out the gifts that you have been given with joy and tenacity. Stepping into creating a life that is purpose-driven and fuels your heart and soul.

Connection

“There’s a reason why we have two ears and one mouth.” – Elders saying

Listening to others and being there to provide support. Creating a space where people feel comfortable to share challenges and struggles. Showing compassion, feeling a sense of belonging, and understanding that we are not alone.

Transformation

“Sometimes when you’re in a dark place, you think you’ve been buried, but you’ve actually been planted” – Christine Caine

Bringing light into dark. Turning pain into love and acceptance. Encouraging people to ask questions and have difficult conversations. Embracing vulnerability, sharing genuinely, and connecting at a deeper level. Allowing people to transform their lives and workplaces.

I’m on a mission to empower people
to live an authentic, passionate, and
connected life.

“Taking care of your own needs has nothing to do with being selfish. Rather, it has to do with self-respect. You are saying: I am worthy.”
