About Joshua Mathew Duncan

I support and guide a psycho-somatic process of transforming patterns of limitation into an authentic interconnected expression of self in every facet of life.

Meet Joshua
Speaking on Agitation Fear & Trauma

For the past two decades Joshua has been supporting and guiding deep transformational work both with individuals and in groups dynamics. 

Out of high school he traveled to the Amazon Jungle where he lived and studied the sciences of vegetalismo and plant spirit medicine, undergoing a process himself that he calls Cultural Detox. Returning to the United States, he sought to deeply understand the nature of the mind and the origin of dis-ease, leading him to ordain as a Buddhist monk – spending over a year in intensive silent retreat. Leaving the monastery he was led to a master of Raj yoga and was asked to begin teaching – which has since led him all over the world and to work with individuals from all backgrounds and walks of life.

Throughout the years he has synthesized his experience and understanding into simple and practical perspectives and tools that promote wholeness, unity and above all else making peace with this moment.

Through deep listening, inquiry, and reflection he helps gently guide a person towards their own clarity, insight and direction. Helping a person disentangle from conflicting beliefs, thoughts, emotions and behaviors – and align on all levels with their most authentic truth.

He provides perspective as well as practical tools to create greater balance, harmony and integration of the past that may limit the ability to feel and be healthy, happy, and whole.

Long-term experience with helping others integrate inner practices with outer life

I have known Joshua for over 20 years, and can attest to the high quality of his character. I have been benefitted by his intense commitment & integrity to this work many times, throughout various life stages & arenas. He is a skilled meditation teacher, he has long-term experience with helping others integrate inner practices with outer life, he has impressive command of various modalities for healing & awakening, and (I feel just as significantly) he is a devoted husband & father to a loving and harmonious family.

In working with Joshua, I always feel his presence, respect, kindness, deep listening, and committed engagement with whatever is arising. This comes from his own inner knowing & love, and comes through consistently & reliably in his work. I strongly recommend Joshua to anyone seeking to deepen their experience of life, doing the real work that brings richness, wellness, and wholeness.

more awareness and distance from distressing symptoms

I have gone to therapy for years, and I have gotten so little out of it. Going through a 40 day process with Joshua, I do feel more awareness and more distance from a lot of distressing symptoms I would get like intrusive thoughts and anxiety. I feel much more that I can see  that things aren’t actually me, they arent permanent features of me. I can have more curiosity, oh this will pass, why does it happen. Instead of going into like road rage, getting completely into an automated way of being .

He saw me as the truest version of myself and guided me in that direction

Joshua’s presence as a guide and mentor in my life has been more valuable than I could ever put into words. He approaches those he works with, with such compassion, non judgment and earnest care. He saw me as the truest version of myself and guided me in that direction when I could not see the way clearly myself and I have watched him do this for others as well. I highly recommend Joshua as a teacher, guide and mentor.
