Jim Larkin, MDiv
Hi and welcome to my website. My mission is to help you TRANSFORM yourself by stepping into your full potential and creating the life you love with satisfying relationships to SELF, OTHERS, and WORK!
I’ve been a Coach, Mentor, and Teacher for over 30 years.
I fully understand the liberating power of breaking through old patterns and conditioning that keep you from finding your joy and passion. (For more of my own experience read My Story.)
I want you to wake up every day loving your life, knowing your life’s mission and finding exciting ways to share it with the world.
I’m here to help you live your best, most passionate life!

Men’s Events: Another arena of my experience is in Men’s Work. In the 1990’s, when I lived in London, England, I worked for an organization called Wild Dance Events. We organized events for men and invited leaders in the Men’s Movement from the US to come and lead us. We worked with Michael Meade, Robert Bly, James Hillman, Malidoma Somé and Martín Prechtel. I attended each and every event over the course of several years where I experienced the power of men gathering together, sharing themselves from the depth of their being, and in the process learning more about themselves. I also attended the New Warrior Training while in London and have participated in online trainings in the USA through The ManKind Project. I now lead In Search of the Sacred Masculine.
Facilitation: Much of my group facilitation is in my work as the Co-Director of the West Coast Kabbalah School. In 1994 I began my Kabbalah studies with Kabbalah Master Z’ev ben Shimon Halevi (Warren Kenton) in London, England. Since returning to the U.S. I have been leading a weekly Kabbalah Group with my partner, Megan Wagner, teaching the Tree of Life as a universal path of psycho-spiritual integration for those interested in deep soul work. We also co-facilitate the Tree of Life Training
Public Speaking: I have also been a core-faculty member at the Chaplaincy Institute Interfaith Seminary where I taught Public Speaking and also served as Community Minister and Co-Provost.
