It is with great joy that I am introducing Joshua Burkhart as your future life-coach. Whether you have a real problem or are simply seeking ways to improve the quality of your lifestyle, Joshua's Partnership and tremendous expertise will surely be of help to you.
Joshua studied comparative religion and philosophy at the University of the Pacific. His knowledge extends to many spiritual traditions such as Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Hinduism and Islam.
It includes practical knowledge useful for self-cultivation, such as diet, meditation, yoga and Reiki.
His talent also lies in the transpersonal psychology where he works with multiple archetypes leading to a deeper, better understanding of one's mission here on earth and the joy of walking the path his clients are longing to undertake.
His extensive experience with hypnosis (obtained through professional occupation) will further add power of personal transformation obtained by working with him, during which he will stand by your side as a faithful companion with humor, elegant speech, and lots and lots of compassion and sympathy.

Josh provided reiki and wellness coaching for me for a little over a year while I went through cancer treatment. He was consistent, kind, encouraging and always saw me as a healthy person going through a challenge rather than a "cancer patient." He celebrates my successes and is supportive and available during the harder times too. He has a lot to offer. . . . highly intuitive Reiki, grounded and informed lifestyle coaching, a friendly and inspiring presence, a wealth of knowledge of Earth's mythic and healing traditions. I am happy that Josh is part of my healing team, and I highly recommend him to anyone in need of additional support for their own healing journeys.

Where to start with Josh…I must say that regardless of all the unexplainable experiences I have had in my healing Journey, I always remain skeptical of those that claim to be healers. There is a lot of fluff and fanfare in this community and it takes a discerning intuition to find the real ones. The first time I met Josh and he performed Reiki on me my whole body started surging with energy. I started shaking right there on his table. Now, I have a lengthy trauma history and have had this sort of experience before, but never by someone simply laying their hands on me. It took me a while to really grasp what happened.
Josh is a true Reiki Master, but what he is and does goes far beyond that. I am not sure healers get any more real than this. He has been so instrumental in my healing from childhood trauma and war that I feel I may never be able to thank him adequately. He is an expert at the Mythos. All of them…I mean seriously. I think he is up there with Joseph Campbell and at the very least he has read all his work. He is well versed in Jungian thought and is an expert dream worker.
He is a true modern day Shaman. Keeping the traditions alive and integrating all the various “Medicines” into his holistic practice. He has been my go to for everything from Astrology, Reiki, Drumming, Ritual, Healing Song, Nutrition, Naturopathic Medicine, Aroma Therapy, Hypnosis, Guided Imagery, Chinese Medicine, Life Coaching, Brain Chemistry, Trauma, and Counseling. He is very psychic and I laugh about all the times he has been able to pick up on things I had missed, or we have had the same experiences of the Mystery during our sessions.
Josh is a fierce spiritual warrior and at the same time a tender hearted, compassionate and empathic healer. Josh is extremely good at what he does, and he is clearly supported by a whole host of the Unseen. This is the type of healer the world needs. I know that he has been through all of the mythological Hells to get to where he is at, and he is no stranger to transition. He has spent a good deal of time in the Underworld and he has been able to use that experience time and time again to guide me through that fickle place when I am there myself.
With Gratitude and Hope for your Journey,

It is an injustice to rate/review a Life Coach because it's also a judgement of his/her character. It's tough to evaluate someone's character because people are much more complex than they seem and it would take anyone an entire lifetime to accurately judge even a single person.
But even with the limited time I had known Joshua, certain qualities stood out from the outset that prompts me to say, with justice, that he is a remarkable man. In a time where spirituality is increasingly becoming superficial, sensational, and commercialized, Joshua remains one of the few people who are genuinely spiritual whom you could trust on a deep level. Why?
Even with his vast knowledge on psychology, neuroscience, world religions, and spirituality, Joshua remains humble, patient, and understanding. Like a true spiritual mentor, he leads the confused seeker to find their own inner strength and wisdom through honest dialogue and personal empowerment. Joshua has the talent to create a nurturing sacred space that enables the psyche to heal by allowing the seeker to weave his/her personal mythos guided by his vast knowledge on Jungian psychology and its practical applications in daily life.
Joshua's healing presence is also attributed to his own spiritual journey of pain, trauma, suffering, redemption, and growth. His experiences gives profundity and depth to his vocation and is very inspiring and healing on its own. He truly understands what it feels like to be hurled into the deepest, darkest abyss in life, whether its depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, addiction, negative body image issues, failed relationships, and spiritual crises. And he helps you navigate through challenging times and emerge stronger and renewed.
If you have been looking everywhere for the right Life Coach, you'd definitely have an awesome experience with Joshua Burkhart.

Josh’s approach to coaching is ‘holistic.’ I first contacted Josh for weight loss. Throughout our early sessions I seemed to talk more about issues that were causing anxiety and lack of sleep. Josh recognized these issues as barriers in reaching my weight goal. We started working on ‘inner healing’ through coaching, exercise, healthy eating, and meditation. The combination of these along with the meditation tapes, has decreased my anxiety. My sleeping patterns have become more restful and I am less anxious throughout the day. Using the tools and techniques that I have gained through Josh, has helped me in losing weight.

Josh is a healer and a friend and if you're looking for either or both of those then I would suggest reaching out to him. I'm very grateful for the time and effort that he has put in to help improve my life and those around me. He truly is magnificent!

Josh has an incredible way of connecting with folks of all walks of life. He listens incredibly well, reading in on your body language and hearing the words between the lines. Josh has the ability to make anyone feel comfortable and open, and has an incredible wealth of knowledge. He truly lives and breathes his profession.

I used to get Reiki 35 years ago. I was used to another style and entered my therapeutic relationship with Mr. Burkhart with some trepidation. Despite my concerns, I found Mr. Burkhart’s approach to be very therapeutic and quite effective.
I especially liked that he told me what my body was telling him. I always found this to be very insightful and useful as well.
Since utilizing his services, I have seen my back decompress so much I am several inches taller than I was when I first started practice. I also noticed that when I was going regularly that my overall mood improved. I felt more ‘at peace’ with my body since it no longer was being ignored.
I would recommend Joshua to anyone looking for an effective and caring practitioner.
