My name is Melvin, I am the creator of The Evolutionist.
My desire in creating the evolutionist was to have a resource for us to actuate and live out our potential.
“There is so much more to us than we can begin to fathom,
we just need to get out of our own way to access it.”
This is my journey.
In order to progress to the next level of my being, I knew that I had to face the demons of my past. To achieve some semblance of external success in my daily life, there were things that I repressed, suppressed, and flat out ignored. I came to a point of knowing that those were the very things that were holding me back.
The problem was I didn’t know how to even begin to address those issues, let alone maintain my everyday life without something falling apart. But I did know one thing for certain: conventional methods would only scratch the surface, I needed to go deeper. I needed to suspend all of the intellectualizations and running narratives to see through the haze and really take that deep look into the mirror.
For me, the mirror was on top of a mountain in a remote region of the Peruvian Andes. Under the watchful gaze of the stars, I drank a brew that would help me see through the fog of my own mind and get to the very root, and truth, of my being. To seek out those memories that escaped me, the pain that defined me, and the love that I felt evaded me. I sat in not only physical pain from the rapid detoxification of my system but I was also overwhelmed by this flood of emotion rushing over me.
I felt as if my soul had been ripped out of my body for me to examine. I could look at myself in a truly objective way – clear of any judgements or attachments to what I saw. I knew as I sat in that yurt and drank that brew, that my life would never be the same.
During my experience on the mountain I was approached by the shaman. He offered me the opportunity to move to Peru, to learn the old ways, and immerse myself in the world of shamanism. I knew in that moment that this was an offer not to be taken lightly. I later discover that this is an opportunity that many seek, few are called.
My life in NYC was beautiful on all levels: successful business, amazing friendships, loving family, etc. Externally I felt on the top of my game, but deep down somewhere I knew my life lacked deeper substance. My life felt like a Hollywood set and I was acting out a role, not sitting in my authenticity. I didn’t know exactly what this feeling was at the time, but I knew that I couldn’t ignore it. And that the universe had provided me a way to find out if I was bold enough to take the Shaman’s offer.
I sat with it for a few months and then decided it was the only logical course of action. If nothing changes everything stays the same. Simple. Within a couple of months, I sold all of my belongings, saved a few sentimental items, and headed down to Peru to meet my true self. And then master him…
In Peru, I went from a participant of the medicine to an operator of the medicine. I quickly stepped into the accelerated path of this work. Evolution is forced adaption, and the more rapidly you adapt the more effective you are in your craft.
I travelled all throughout Peru learning the art of shamanism seeking the wisdom and tools to bridge the gap between spirituality and science, mysticism and allegory, hearsay and experience. Working with various shamanic practitioners under different mesas and philosophies, I began dieting different master plants in isolation in the jungle, holding ceremony in ancient sites, facilitating retreats and guiding people with their own personal journeys. These are just some of the adventures that have shaped the experience I now bring to you. And as a result of my journey I feel compelled to share the gifts and knowledge for you to render intelligible in your own life.
After a few years I realized that I needed to broaden my scope of awareness and bring my own evolution in this path to its next stage. So again, I packed up and left South America. My travels brought me to Asia. It was in Bali where I was called to study with another teacher who helped me move further into mastering the art of engagement and unfold the deeper layers of my work. He challenged me to step past my past and to learn the true art of energetics which helped further clear the fog.
My journeys were and are with sole purpose of gaining the tools necessary to serve effectively. By gaining these experiences, studying under various teachers, doing the necessary internal work, and expanding my scope of awareness, I bring to you the best possible version of myself to serve.
You see, the journey isn’t over,
just by sharing this piece of me, you are now part of it…
