Philip once played bass in several bands and with one of the most famous singers in all of Mexico and was even on the TV show The Voice… but the highlife wasn’t for him… in the midst of all the money and women and success, his lifelong aspirations to a deeper surrender called to him. Weaving spiritual messages into his songs and translating Ken Wilber into Spanish barely scratched the spiritual itch to transcend and include this world in an all-embracing radiant painting of all-that-is.
Now, as a top Circling leader and trailblazer of bringing Circling (and Integral Theory) into Latin America, Philip acts as a mentor and guide to a deeper, fuller of embrace of all that it means to be human. He specializes in the kind of loving presence that allows total beginners to feel at home, while helping them see a clear path of development for expressing their higher potentials.
For a treat, bring any quote from “The Big Lebowski” or “Hamilton” and listen as Philip quotes the next line. Then, ask him to tell you the deeper dharma this part of the story points to.
Finally, no bio of Philip would be complete without describing his unfaltering love for his wife, Liz, and his son Alexander. They’re an absolute joy to be with.

Testimonials on experiencing Circling Coaching sessions with Philip:
"The sessions with Philip were unlike any other coaching I’ve had. Never before have I worked so directly and somatically on what it is like to be with my power, and how I can be with it in relationship. This is a very tender topic for me, and Philip’s ability to really meet me there was a surprise. Whenever I took a risk, he could see me, receive me, and meet me right at that edge. His deep skill, courage and authenticity allowed me to express and explore what’s normally kept under wraps. The insights and energy I got from this have been (and continue to be) essential to figuring out my path as a coach and business owner. I am deeply grateful that Circling exists and that there are practitioners at this level."
-Catelijne Coopmans, The Netherlands
"The latest breed of coaches works at the level of identity and consciousness, not "just" behavior and performance. Philip has been masterful at connecting with me at this level. In our sessions, I experience in real-time the kind of meditative clarity that has taken me a week of full-on retreat-style meditation to achieve otherwise. He repeatedly guides me to a kind of self-awareness that brings clear insights into patterns that have held me stuck for years. He's exceptionally studied in Integral theory but, more importantly, has obviously integrated the principles and practices himself. He leads and guides not so much by what he knows (which is vast) but by who he is. In only a short time working with him, I've come to consider him a wise and trusted leader, advisor and guide."
—Evy Campbell, New York
"Philip's attuned presence teases me out of the bastion of my mind, and lovingly cushions my glide down into we space, where he shows me how to listen to forgotten instruments making angelic sounds, and we dance until the dance dances us, and shakes free our trapped children."
—Daniel S., UK
