Question everything. Keep strong beliefs and strong opinions to a minimum. Have fun. Don't Squeem.

I am...

A walk-in soul that was awake for the entire soul transfer. This is a true thing. Hello! Right now I am going by two names. Eric Durchholz (who was the previous occupant) and Patrick Coleman (who I am now).

You can read about Eric here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eric_durchholz

AN AUTHOR, ARTIST, PSYCHIC, MEDIUM AND URBAN SHAMAN WITH REMARKABLE AND UNCANNY CONNECTIONS TO THE WORK OF EDGAR CAYCE AND JANE ROBERTS. WITH A RESPECTFUL NOD TO THOSE THAT CAME BEFORE HIM, DURCHHOLZ AND COLEMAN ARE MORE THAN WILLING TO FURTHER EXPLORE THE MYSTERIES OF LIFE, THE UNIVERSE AND OTHER SACRED MYSTERIES.

An early Internet pioneer and two-time speaker at SXSW, Durchholz endured a rapid-fire series of life-altering events that would leave anyone in ruins.

Through losing everything due to a flood and other life disasters Durchholz emerged from the darkness with a lot of help from the other side.

At his darkest moment Durchholz called on a version of himself that exists in an alternate universe that connects him with his “total aspect consciousness” and in accessing these different versions of reality, he unlocked remarkable psychic and empathic abilities.

After moving to Chicago to study comedy at legendary Second City, Durchholz says he went through a “psychic initiation” that culminated in a walk in soul transfer in April of 2013. He says his awakening was quick, painful, confusing but ultimately beautiful.

Quotes

“The only reason we don't open our hearts and minds to other people is that they trigger confusion in us that we don't feel brave enough or sane enough to deal with. To the degree that we look clearly and compassionately at ourselves, we feel confident and fearless about looking into someone else's eyes. ”
― Pema Chödrön
