I came to know Javan and the work he does, through Darren Doherty and his online training REX. Six months down REX’s program, I separated from whom was then my partner, and the land project were starting suddenly stopped.
After almost a year I contacted Javan to help me looking at the bigger picture, put myself on the spot and help me making the questions, I was not daring to ask myself (about my current situation or what I really wanted from life), or probably didn’t even know existed.
Making your own Holistic Context is part of Rex’s program, so I was a bit familiar with it and had done some work on it. However, it was very important to follow Javan’s steps and guidance to go deeper into creating my Holistic Context and learning about decision making. I felt Javan was always there on the other side of the line, answering all my doubts and offering extra time for completing my homework. So as I guess is quite common at first, my initial HCs were quite loaded, way too long and quite influenced by the examples I had as reference and inspiration.
For our penultimate session Javan asked me to do a viability analysis of potential land-based enterprises. The research I made and the numbers I clarified, left it quite clear that it was not possible for me to make a living from the land in my personal circumstances and context. It was a big blow to my plans and the energy I had already invested on the land. I then followed his advice to go back to my HC and do another editing.
Feeling desperate made me go into surviving mode and this helped me to distil the HC to be more realistic and stay with what is essential and true to myself. At the same time, I came to realize what I want to do for living, and when I went back to my newly edited HC, realized what I want to do is completely in line with my values. I felt it was good timing for me to have my HC edited by the time my previous plan kind of stuttered. I felt I had a structure upon which I can rest and keep perspective going forward.
This work with Javan has been very important. I feel very fortunate I came across his path. I hope to find work of my own that helps people as much as he helped me. I think it’s a work that has the potential to benefit us all especially these days and the state of the world
It’s amazing to have gone from feeling absolutely lost in life to how I feel now, I’m excited for what’s next.
Thank you so much.

I wouldn’t be where I am today without Javan’s help; without prioritizing, focus (which I didn’t have before), having someone to regularly be there to check in with, talk to and hold me accountable. Now I’m able to focus on my career goals, closely aligned with my values, and I realize how powerful this is. Now I know what questions to ask, to both myself and others. It’s helped enormously, more than I could have ever imagined. The momentum has gathered and people are showing up again and again to accompany me on my journey and work with me. It was such an honour to work with Javan, to benefit from his experience and his razor-sharp way of diagnosing and cutting straight into the issues. I’m extremely grateful for this work and it’s been incredibly valuable. Thank you again, Javan, for all of your help!

My wife and I knew we wanted to build a more rural context. However, we felt overwhelmed by the seemingly infinite possibilities — and we never got anywhere. For starters, we didn’t know anything about land, agriculture, natural resource management — not to mention other things we didn’t even realize we should have been thinking about.
Javan knew it all. Like anything else: if you want to learn quickly (and minimize costly mistakes), the best way is to work with someone who already has the experience and the expertise. A few phone calls with Javan saved us time and money — and finally got us into measurable progress. If you’re not sure where to start, this is the right place!
Business, Client, Holistic Life Context, Land Design, Life DesignI first heard Javan speak on The Ruminant podcast, in an episode on farmer mental health. Javan’s way of communicating really resonated, and I’ve listened to that episode a few times now to revisit what he explained.I sensed really genuine compassion, humour, and knowledge born of experience, and thought ‘this guy is legit, and I would really like to talk to him myself’. I learned some powerful ideas while working through Javan’s Single Decision session, and I would recommend it to someone who is having trouble with decision-making.The questions he posed before the session were thought-provoking and compelled me to look at myself honestly and with kindness. Javan’s approach in the whole process was open-hearted, generous, warm and quite firm in asking for me to show up with authenticity. I appreciated all of it.Thanks a million!

Javan’s course (Holistic Life Context) helped my team and I discover our “why” and coached us in developing our core values. It helped us find order in the chaos that we were headed toward.
I recommend this course to anybody who is starting a business or non-profit to make sure you and your team are all on the same wavelength and to avoid any future catastrophes.
Figuring out the inner workings of your future organization can help you avoid major breakdowns or even burnout when it is already too late to change anything.
This course is an indispensable investment to any organization. It will get you on the right track with proper habits, goal setting, communication, progress tracking and will allow you to create the infrastructure you need for success.
Javan is an encyclopaedia of information and his wealth of knowledge is priceless. He will go above and beyond the call of duty to recommend books, resources, websites, people to connect with etc.
This course is a gift and will leave you inspired, confident and ready to face any challenge that comes your way.

We called Javan as we listened to his podcasts for years about making better decisions. We were at a cross roads with our farm and family. The time was very valuable to us. You’re really good at this.
We needed attention and someone to hear us out. You listened in a very non-judgemental way to very judgemental stuff! The homework you provided gives us something solid to work on instead of being lost in fatigue.
We’ve been looking at context work for years and we get it now. We can’t get bogged down with our stuff. Thank you.

I sought help from Javan because I was feeling so sick of my job, and unsure where to begin in making a change.
He ended up helping me in many areas of my life with his solid guidance.
I went from feeling overwhelmed in many areas, to having tools to take things on at the right speed to see results without burning out.
I feel more in control of my life, I can see the next few steps ahead of me, and I feel like I’m headed in the right direction.
Thanks a lot!
