From an early age, I was fascinated with discovering what makes a human being happy and fulfilled. I had spent more than enough time in my life over sleeping, bingeing on fast food and wasting entire days watching YouTube videos to learn that there is a deeper confronting adventure calling for me. Thus, open to all sources of wisdom, I used my own life as an experiment to truly dissect and perfect the recipe of what truly nourishes the deeper parts of self.
My journey has taken me from academic scholar, to professional poker player, to actor, to Daoism and Eastern meditation practices, to self help gurus, to profound yogic sexual communities. All of which have guided me to breathe what fulfills me most: a coaching career in supporting and igniting people who are inspired to pursue and live their most intimate dreams.
“I have worked with Balwin Ratra for a long time now. For me, where he stands out from others is his exquisite level of attention and patience. He is able to listen and hone in on the actual spot or pattern that is causing issues for me. Then he empowers me towards my goals by helping me gain access to my own genius and brilliance. His vision and nature is undeniable in empowering anyone that he works with. You won’t regret it. “
” Before working with Balwin I was really out of touch with what I wanted. I was mostly stuck in my head around the things I thought I should do and the things I thought would make me successful and even though I was doing all the seemingly right things I didn’t feel fulfilled or happy. Deep down I felt like something was missing. In coaching with Balwin, I learned what that was – a deep connection to my heart and my vulnerable desires. With his presence, attention and genius coaching I finally felt safe to admit what I really deeply wanted and eventually I had breakthroughs in all of these areas.”
” I’ve had the opportunity to work with Balwin on a variety of situations. In all of my coaching calls with Balwin, his grounded presence and deep capacity to hold space for me allowed me to emotionally let go and fully feel into my body during each session: from joy when I discovered a new desire, to shame when I relived a childhood memory, and to all-out heartbreak crying from devastation and grief.Though Balwin was coaching me, it honestly felt like I was talking to a trusted friend with no judgments or biases. That’s what makes him a fantastic coach. “
” Balwin has a pure heart and a relentless ambition – that combination is hard to find and it makes him an unbeatable coach. I’ve experienced deep moments of presence with Balwin both in friendship and in coaching. He has spent years perfecting his practices and becoming the man he wants to be, and everyone who comes into contact with him is a lucky beneficiary. “
” Balwin’s coaching was instrumental to me learning how to truly be vulnerable as a man. It helped me restore connections with friends and family alike. It made me feel in touch with my emotions again. Balwin has a very fine tuned skill as a coach to find the “spot” with careful and mindful precision. His coaching style is very gentle yet penetrating enough to quickly get past stories and negative self talk. My quality of life has definitely improved since receiving Balwin’s coaching. “
