“It’s difficult to describe what it’s like to work with Gavin without using superlatives. He is funny, solid, compassionate, intelligent, intuitive, modestly confident and adventurous — a human being of unsurpassed integrity. I imagine Gavin as one of my angels embodied into human form. He hears what I say, what I feel but haven’t said, and most importantly what I have not yet allowed myself to hear within my own consciousness. In my mentoring work with Gavin I always feel fully supported and encouraged to go to my edge on every level.
Gavin has an uncanny way of entering into a flow of profound truth that is naturally emerging in the moment. As a result, my evolution has often been surprisingly rapid — much more than the actual ‘work’ would seem to account for. Our collaborative work activated profound new awareness and change that, interestingly, often spontaneously impacts other areas of my life that aren’t necessarily the focus of the sessions themselves. All I can say is that the opportunity to work in creative partnership with Gavin is a blessing and divine privilege.”

“With the lightest touch, the highest intention for my growth, and an intuition that attunes to the energies of my soul, Gavin Frye has powerfully guided me to expansively embrace my authentic self and express my gifts. He helped me attune to that place deep within that holds my dreams—and find the strength of heart to fulfill them. It was under his mentorship that I dared to “retire” from my long-standing, unfulfilling profession and go back to school to engage my passion as an artist. Now I am working at something that is wholeheartedly ME, expressing in ways that empower others. My life has never been the same.
Gavin is very real, human, profoundly compassionate, and masterful in his craft and profession. With a laugh that is hearty and joy-filled, he is a living testament to authentic, wholehearted living. For those willing to do whatever it takes to be all that they truly are in this lifetime, I highly recommend Gavin as a wise, loving and masterful mentor.”

“Highly attuned to Spirit, Gavin holds a profoundly safe and inviting space where great healing and transformation takes place spontaneously. I have working extensively with Gavin over the last 20 years, and am continuously awed by his loving attunement to my unfolding life’s process—personally, professionally and spiritually. Gavin’s integrity and willingness to transparently share challenges and triumphs from his own life always inspire me.
In our work together, I’ve opened to deeper levels of Self-trust and the courageous expression of my authentic self. Under his mentorship I’ve developed a pioneering new workshop series for men, Embracing Authentic Masculinity. Having Gavin as a mentor and ally is one of my life’s greatest blessings—and worthwhile investments.”

“Participating in Gavin’s Authentic Self-Leadership program has quite simply been the most profound and life-changing experience I have ever given to myself. Among the countless gifts I discovered was a compassionate, loving and completely supportive community that created a safe harbor for unexpected, exponential growth. Gavin’s highly attuned intuitive gifts as a guide and facilitator provided the steady anchor for this exquisitely well-designed 11-month program. I have witnessed the miraculous blossoming of my own authenticity and groundbreaking changes taking place in my outer life, and I am eternally grateful.”

“My experience of transformational work with Gavin initiated a kaleidoscope of inspired change in my life. When I made the decision to seek a mentor, my experience of Gavin as a person of integrity and deep caring made him my first choice. Gavin is truly a wise man, and he anchors a sacred space through his loving presence. His brilliance is his profound ability to create an environment in which great things simply happen. Gavin freely shares from a storehouse of wisdom distilled from the unique challenges he has faced in his own life journey, yet he is most respectful by holding a focus of allowing me to find the healing inside myself and direct my own creative forces.
In Gavin’s presence I have felt safe, recognized, inspired, informed, transcendent, energized, authentic, humor, and love. His in-depth mentoring has powerfully supported me in opening to a deeper level of healing and uncovering my own natural gifts for creating empowering relationships with the clients I guide. If you are desiring a life path that reflects Self-honoring, authentic leadership and gifted expression, Gavin is a priceless and well-seasoned guide.”

“The rich talk you gave at our Spiritual Mastery breakfast meeting was deeply appreciated by all, Gavin. I am inspired by your personal style of presenting in which you are so authentic and self-revealing, for it allowed you to gracefully lead us in both the role of teacher and fellow traveler. You naturally created a depth of profound group intimacy that was surprising in such a very short time together. The energy in that meeting was palpably sweet and authentic and inspired everyone’s sharing in the dyads and large group. I had known the man I was paired with for many years, yet he confided things to me in that dyad he had never dared voiced with another person. Each of us encountered and embraced the best of ourselves that morning—and found the courage to be transparent with each other in groundbreaking new ways. Your enthusiasm for learning and living an authentic life is so contagious and inspirational!”
~ Elaine Crandall, Singer, Author, Corporate Manager
“No matter what issues I brought to you in our one-on-one mentoring work together, no matter the intensity of the material, I felt an ability in you to be present and accepting with me in a way that I find very rare. I will always remember and appreciate your gentleness and skill with holding a safe container for me. As well, before working with you I had always worked only with women on my issues of childhood sexual abuse. You were the first man that I felt safe enough to work with. I am so grateful for how you show up as a powerful, loving and healing man.
For many years, I had a heartfelt dream to take my work of facilitating women’s empowerment circles into women’s shelters and prisons, but could not get myself to move forward in action. At that point in my journey I chose into Gavin’s Authentic-Self Leadership program, and the creative parts of me became activated and my natural flow of action steps began taking place almost effortlessly. Although I am working diligently, it feels I am moving in the current the universe is providing, with doors opening that I did not imagine would be available. This level of my women’s empowerment work has now blossomed. I have tears of gratitude to see these healing groups begin moving into populations of women who are benefitting from them in profound ways.”

“As ordained ministers in our 80’s and veterans of many personal growth trainings, we were enriched by Gavin’s Authentic Self-Leadership program which enabled our hearts to open in profound new ways. The group welcomed our presence as ones who have happily weathered the crises and joys of 60 years of marriage. We were nurtured by the safe, loving environment in which transformation so naturally occurred. We became aware in a new way of the beauty and confidence of the Soul as it unfolds in the presence of loving acceptance. The group’s tremendous support helped us both in triumphantly writing and publishing long-simmering books.”

“Gavin has been an extraordinary mentor for me. He consistently brings forward such stunning intuition and insight with such integrity, gentleness and regard for me. He showed inexhaustible loving support while also holding me accountable by daring to honestly share his perceptions of my part in the challenges I was reckoning with. Gavin has been highly attuned to both my inner process and unfolding outer life. I simply cannot recommend him highly enough.”
~ Dr. Matthew Hertert, Chiropractor
“Gavin’s exquisite Authentic-Self Leadership program has been an opportunity to open myself to a kind and gentle voice that has been there all along. It is a voice always `urging me to treat myself with the love and respect that I deserve, and one inviting to towards showing up in the world with a transparent, risking honesty that is moving and powerful. When I look at a snow-capped mountain set against the bluest sky and feel my heart open, I am learning to feel that same way about my day-to-day life. I am learning to experience deep suffering with the same tenderness and self-love as a moment of joy….this is the heart of Gavin’s support and work. As a result of my work with him, I am now more naturally flowing with the presence and guidance of my own heart.”
