Starting out as a naive and trusting seeker, Dallin Brimhall walked a dark and lonely path. Surrounded by people because of his charm and charisma, he quickly learned that he lacked self-control, confidence, and love. Having no boundaries and plagued with addiction and his programmed ideas on sexuality, Dallin experienced an all time low in 2013 when he suffered his first manic episode. Found wondering around naked in the woods for three days and three nights with no food or water, Dallin was tazed multiple times by law enforcement and suffered a near death experience. When he found himself coming back-to he was being arrested and forced to walk down the mountain in shame of his nakedness by the local authorities with a whole crowd of onlookers. Taken to Utah Valley Hospital and put into the ICU for recovery, followed by the psychiatric unit, he was diagnosed bi-polar and forced to take medications. He quickly learned the flaws of the healthcare and justice systems having little to no training or education in psychology and a heightened stigma around mental illness. This lead him to the exploration of shamanism and doing things his own way rather than the abusive, toxic western approach. Well trained in energetic healing arts and alternative healing modalities Dallin quickly became aware that his so called “mental illness,” was actually a spiritual gift that he could use to help others.
Dedicating himself to a life of service and an ongoing quest to know the truth, Dallin continues to seek healing and enlightenment. Trusting the process of spiritual growth and using the tools and wisdom gained along the way he now offers his gifts to the world. Suffering multiple physical injuries such as dislocating shoulders, broken collarbone, back injuries and a broken neck as well as trauma from the death of his mother and sexual abuse in childhood Dallin has learned many ways to heal. After finishing massage school in 2010 and going back to school for psychology and getting certified as a yoga instructor, Dallin opened up a massage practice in 2017 where he is able to use physical bodywork combined with psychology and the spiritual aspects of shamanism to guide others through their own healing journeys. He is an avid yogi of 16 years and is obsessed with getting “high” on life through breathing practices and connecting with nature. He considers himself a never ending student and continues to learn and practice what he preaches. He has overcome all of his addictions, embraced his sexuality, and finds the most joy in service to others. He has developed a rock solid foundation and love for God and no longer lives his life denying his feelings or suppressing his gifts. His dream is to witness and be a part of the building of a New Earth dedicated to communities of peace and enlightenment.
Dallin is co-creator of Full Moon Camping Retreats LLC, owner of I AM Sports Massage and Shamanism, and currently resides in Utah with his partner and their two cats. He is in the process of finishing his I AM (Integrative Affirmational Mindfulness)™ system, which consists of 26 oracle cards with yoga postures and affirmations.
