Excursion with Cardinal

Hi, I'm Wes! I'm a husband, father, wanna-be surfer, ok-climber, and full-time coach. For more info about me and how I coach, click HERE. Otherwise, I'm excited for you to learn more about the Excursion Packages below.



New views create new moves!

Excursion coaching packages are designed to do just that: provide you with a new external view in order to accompany the new internal awareness and perspective that we've been generating together in our sessions.


The Cardinal Excursion involves 12 sessions of group and individual coaching (6 each) delivered over 3 months. You'll be paired with 3 other like-minded travelers (4 per group) who are all looking to make significant moves in their lives. Coaching addresses the mental and internal aspects of human performance, and the growth you'll experience from this combination of ongoing sessions and physical experience is both exhilarating and inspiring. (This is an exercise in quality over quantity, so space is extremely limited!)

The excursion itself is generally 3-4 days and will usually take place near the halfway point of our journey together. This way, the trip and experience can be effectively incorporated into your learning and growth.

In the words of Robert Frost, our aim is to "get lost enough to find yourself."

Are you willing to put in the work that others won’t? Do you find yourself believing there’s more potential than your current reality? Are you a voracious learner who readily invests in yourself? Do you find that your own personal standards often exceed the norm?

But - despite your abilities - do you sometimes get tangled in your own head space? Do you find yourself living from a place of scarcity? Are you too often looking for external affirmation (or permission)?

If this sounds like you, then we should talk.

Maybe it's the job; maybe it's the relationship. Maybe it's the tribe, belief, or identity that is no longer serving you in this new place. Or maybe it's as *simple* as recognizing the end of what you can no longer tolerate as acceptable. 

Maybe you’re excited; maybe you’re desperate. Probably there’s a little of both.

Whether it's a journey toward restoration, an effort in personal improvement, or something in between, you’ve arrived at the realization that changes are in order; you cannot simply remain.

If by this point on the page you’re still waiting to be convinced or sold, then maybe this isn't for you right now. But if at this same juncture something in your soul won’t stop smiling, or maybe there’s an inner joy from being heard for the first time in a long time, then there’s a good chance this is for you

Congratulations! You’re hungry enough to get going.

This intersection of hope and fear is my sweet spot; it’s where I thrive. And where I thrive, you’ll thrive. No question. You’ll attain your goals faster, sustain new behaviors longer, and retain a level of awareness and insight that is deeper and stronger than your present state. In short, you'll: get clarity, get confidence, and GET GOING!


This isn't a bootcamp, retreat, or off-site!

The magic lies in the powerful combination of coaching and excursion. 

Coaching is a unique conversation that is neither diagnostic nor directive; rather, the focus is on the kind of discovery that leads accomplishing meaningful goals. Essentially, coaching addresses the mental and internal aspects of human performance in life and business. 

In conjunction, the exertion, grandeur, and vistas you’ll experience during the excursion will no doubt produce new insights as well as galvanize the learning you’ve been generating during the coaching sessions leading up to the trip. I’m a true believer in the mantra NEW VIEWS CREATE NEW MOVES! Cresting a peak overlooking Salt Lake City or ascending a rock wall high above the valley can’t NOT empower your spirit and motivate you toward your goal(s)! Imagine how much more effective that will be, then, when you’re doing it with fellow sojourners who are all not only taking their own risks, but who are also deeply vested in your own personal success? 


Or attend a free Beta Group first (see below)!


Nope. Each of those can have their place in helping us find our way, but they do differ from coaching in some important aspects. The chart below is by no means comprehensive, but perhaps it can give some context.


Glad you asked! Check out the overview below. In addition, you can find more trip-specific info here on the PDF.

Each member of the Fellowship will receive a custom Cardinal Coaching bullet journal. This will serve as a field guide where you’ll document your learning and track your progress.

In addition, each member of the Fellowship will receive a personalized vision recording. Essentially this is an mp3 audio recording of a script you create and recite, layered against the backdrop of a setting of your choice (crackling fire, lazy ocean waves, choir of crickets, etc.). It’s a powerful and motivating resource that will serve you long after your quest! 


Now we’re talking!


Let's go get lost.
