Jevon is the survivor of three incidents that brought him extremely close to dying: .
1. He was shot at from arms length in a robbery with the bullet shaving one side of his head.
2. While snowboarding he found himself at a point of no return –
on the verge of being taken over the edge of an alpine cliff by an avalanche.
3. When he could no longer breathe due to excruciating pain associated with a life threatening
inflamation of his heart, Jevon had to depend on his own self hypnosis technique in order to
maintain consciousness during an hour long ambulance trip to the emergency room.
Jevon gets his audience on the edge of their seats while portraying his near death experiences and the valuable insights which they revealed –
“Things don’t happen to us, they happen for us.”
During his presentation Jevon demonstrates how –
“Any of life’s challenges can be opportunities for growth and enrichment.”
Holding the hand of his mother as she passed away after a long sickness, Jevon’s perceptions about the meaning and value of life were even further elevated.
He has realised deeply how important it is to –
“Make every moment of life count, not because we never know when it may be over, but because every experience counts for something valuable.”
Jevon spent over 12 years travelling around the world for the purpose of gaining a deeper understanding about what differentiates us as people as well as what connects and unifies all human beings across cultures and geographic boundaries. Learning from many great teachers on his journey, he has discovered a little known yet universal way to open the aperture of our
awareness in order to perceive people and situations mindfully.
During his talks he teaches this simple and effective skill in an entertaining manner. He points out how it can also be used to identify daily Sychronicities as well as how to harness such ‘meaningful coincidences’ in order to find our bearings and move toward our goals.
Jevon reveals ways in which anyone can find meaning in even the most mundane aspects of life. This leads to us being more open-minded, creative, proactive, and compassionate toward ourselves and others. He suggests –
“The meaning of life is the meaning we give it.
The more significant the meaning we give our experiences,
the more significant our life becomes.”
Jevon has presented personal development seminars as well as accredited NLP and professional coach training around the world since 2004.
His inspirational talks draw on his coaching and training expertise, include practical insights from his life defining experiences, as well as incorporate metaphors and charismatic story telling as a way of expanding the world-views of each individual in his audience.
Through having their perspectives broadened and then shown how to bring empowered attitudes to the difficult situations in life, his audiences learn how to become more resourceful in the face of adversity. He holds that everyone can (and should) embody their central purpose in the main areas of their life in order to be resilient as well as to thrive. He demonstrates how this can be achieved in his talks.
Jevon adapts his presentations to suit his listeners and the objectives of those who hire him. He has a way of tuning into the collective psyche of his audience, meeting them where they are and leading them to states of elated captivation.
A frequent theme in his talks is that of the map is not the territory, explaining how our internal representations determine our external experience of life. Jevon teaches his audiences how to update their outdated maps in order to be fully functional and fully present in life.
His message in this part of the talk is –
“When you change your internal map of reality, you change your external experience of reality. When you change your experience of reality, the world changes. That’s how valuable you are!”
