Implementing a holistic framework with my wife (newly wed) over the last years has been both instrumental and revolutionary, but also difficult, slow going, and iterative in our attempts – in so many ways. From the basic ability to communicate a vision and how to achieve it, to the more intricate reality of the day to day process of managing who are we? where are we? and where are we going? and how are we getting there?
For me, I like to be explicit about all of this and examine my life, and so Holistic Management and Javan Kerby Bernakevitch have given me invaluable tools to create my life’s journey, I really only regret not having learned this in kindergarten.

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!
Business, Education, Holistic Life Context, Life Design, Life Design for Permaculture, One-on-One CoachingBefore we did this work with Javan, it seemed too daunting to include everything in our life that we wanted to move forward. We were both aware of things that needed improvement, but they were stuck up in our brains. Having it down on paper makes the conversation about us and the farm possible.Javan provided a framework for us to have an organized conversation with each other on a disorganized situation and it’s been fantastic. We wish it was something we had done years ago, but we just didn’t have the tools at the time. This holistic framework gives you a sense of the entire picture of your life, from work to finances to personal relationships and everything in between in our case, and it allowed us to juggle all this in a calm and collected, but thorough and methodical way that made it easy to approach and discuss one issue at a time until we were both on the same page.

When I reflect on my life, few experiences mark a definitive division of before and after. Completing Javan’s life design modules is the most recent example of such a phenomenon.
I’m writing today to provide a ringing endorsement.
Having rarely asked myself questions relating to motivation and introspection to the depth required, this work was foreign and at times extremely difficult. Javan’s abilities in such moments to motivate and articulate significance was central to my success. Further, his sequencing was brilliant. Fleeting attempts at establishing a context had left me stagnant and disgruntled. Javan’s modules exhibited a fluidity that, unbeknownst to me, were establishing the very foundation for a life design that had previously eluded me.
His guidance, council, and cutting inquisition throughout the modules left me proud, lighter, empowered, inspired, and determined.
Looking for catharsis? Javan helped me identify restrictive limiting beliefs operating deep in the programming of my intentionality. Looking for a quick return on investment?
In week 2 of the modules, I saw a financial improvement of $4000 on a decision stemming from this work. To say I recommend working with Javan is an understatement.
I was extremely impressed with his presence, demeanour, and facilitation throughout this process. I can’t say enough good things. If you have ever noticed a hint of interest in establishing a context for yourself, call this man today.

I have been actively engaged in my personal growth for most of my adult life and though there have been so many things that have facilitated that growth for me throughout the years, I don’t know if I can say anything has been as effective so quickly as working with Javan on Holistic Life Design.
Many authors, speakers and ‘gurus’ offer broad concepts, and many offer very specific structures.
The Holistic Life Design Process is so effective because it takes a very broad view of something, namely yourself, and applies a framework. It isn’t a rigid thing that says do this or that different practice, in fact it works on an order of magnitude higher than that because it helps you make certain that this or that practice, or decision is a sound one.
After going through this process I am now equipped with a tool-kit that I can apply to any decision I make, and all of life is really a sequence of decisions. As novice to the process I can see how my continued use of this tool increases its potency as it is constantly refined and sharpened. What’s more, just as in life, this work does not seem to be just about the destination.
I am excited for to have the Holistic Life Design framework to apply to my decision making, but I was excited each week when I opened up the next module and got a chance to do some seriously deep looking inward, in some cases to places I had been very much avoiding even if subconsciously.
The process was set at a pace and in a sequence that kept me engaged and inspired to do more. At the end of the hard work, and it isn’t easy by any means, there is the reward of a tool you can carry with you for the rest of your life, and through the use of this tool you can enrich your life and the lives of those around you by showing up in your power and authenticity.
Don’t take up this work if you’re just looking for some easy means of making problems go away, that isn’t really realistic. However if you are ready to commit to yourself, and go through a process of discovery, transformation and integration of a powerful new way of making decisions, then get in touch with Javan Bernakavitch and prepare to do some homework.

Javan’s contribution to our Permaculture Design Courses in Cuba has been critical for our Cuban and Canadian participants alike. His offering of a ‘Life Design’ workshop as part of the course provides students the unique and very valuable opportunity to consider how they might systemically integrate all they are learning more fully into their lives and their livelihoods – a wonderful innovation and addition to the usual PDC.”

Javan’s impact on my professional life has been critical to my success. He has a unique ability to perceive opportunities and to provide sound feedback. It’s a pleasure working with such a down-to-earth mentor and friend.

When I need someone to make sense out of chaos and despair and give me purpose and a roadmap for how to move forward, Javan is the guy. We all know what being in a funk does to productivity levels and as a small business owner, those hours, days, and even weeks spent spinning my wheels means a lot of money, which for me translates to missed leisure time and freedom. When I look at my books and see what a good day of work can bring financially, I am thankful I have a mentor like Javan to make those difficult times short, manageable, and most importantly understandable, so I can get back to doing what I love!”
