Welcome to the blog of Unified Living. Unified Living is a project being created by myself and a few friends to share insights and advice on creating a unified state of being that balances material abundance with spiritual truth; essentially moving towards the complete freedom and therefore happiness that wholeness in life allows. Isnt that what we are all ultimately after?
Heres the stuff Im supposed to say to flatter myself and catch your attention:
DJ Siclari is an entrepreneur, coach, teacher of spiritual warrior traditions, and professional speaker. Don’s search for truth and understanding began as a young child when he couldn’t stop asking the question “why?” (He even received an award for being the most inquisitive kid in the 5th grade) He also decided early on that he didnt want to work for someone else so he started a business at 9 and his 5 year old sister Stephanie was his assistant. (Stephanie loved the idea so much that she still works for him as a partner in InChek, his primary business. Note this is not the same business he ran at 9!)
In his teens while a high school athlete, he began studying with teachers of a Japanese spiritual warrior lineage, Oriental Medicine, esoteric meditation, and neurolinguistic programming/hypnotherapy. Throughout his 20s, he continued his training in spiritual warrior arts, healing, meditation, shamanic traditions, and personal change work, earning several certifications along the way. Having always had a love of medicine, Don went to paramedic school while in college and took an extra year to complete advanced clinical studies in hospital and operating room settings. He then worked as a paramedic and firefighter, started InChek, LLC (a payment processing company), completed executive protection training, and was the executive director of Metrofly a Manhattan based charity fundraising organization which hosted monthly social events.
Don continues traveling to work with his teachers, managing his business, working as a life enhancement personal coach, and performing a monthly Goma esoteric fire ceremony. He divides his time between his homes in the northeast and Las Vegas, NV where he keeps fit by defying gravity training with Cirque du Soleil Acrobats who kick his butt on a daily basis.
Don serves on the Advisory Board of the Union Institute and University Center for Clinical Mindfulness, an organization pioneering mindfulness meditation practices in the professional treatment of depression and psychotherapy.
In this blog, I’ll share stories, insights, lessons, fun moments, crazy times, and heart wrenching moments from my own lifelong journey towards balance and wholeness. In the process, I’ll share lessons and teachings I’ve received from my mentors and poke fun at myself quite a bit. Come along for the ride!
