John Castagnini is the Founder and CEO of, speaker and expert consultant on ( Equilibration ™) a skill used to bring the the emotions depression, grief, addiction, divorce, sexual abuse or any emotional trauma to balance and skilled brand strategists.

John’s controversial and iconoclastic thinking has put him at the forefront of the personal/spiritual development community.

The work John shares is the culmination of his personal pursuit of life’s big questions:

  • How does our universe really work, and how to we maximize our individual self as we evolve humanity.
  • How does one better understand and master the use of their mind and body to access their unique genius?
  • How does one clarify their individual purpose, live it and l build the wealth they would love in the process?
  • How does one discover and live a path of wisdom and their creative genius?

As a teenager, John started delving into philosophy, lyrics and writing poetry . “I was studying the martial arts, and I felt an innate energy I needed to understand.. As I read Quantum Healing by Deepak Chopra, and he spoke about the microcosm and the macrocosm, I could feel the expansion and contraction of my being tuning into the cosmos.

John was led to the healing arts where he attended Chiropractic school and completed a Biology degree. “Understanding the hidden wisdom of the Universe has been my pursuit,” he says. John set out to devour the great minds and the great mysteries with the hope of achieving deeper understandings to share the wisdom he discovered.

Along the journey John drew into his great friends who helped shape his vision: martial art’s masters Steve Picone and John Bracey, an Indian monk named Ramnick Chibur, Dr. Wayne Dyer and Dr. John Demartini.

After years of study and serving others in transcending challenges a major turning point in John’s life occurred when his mother died.

“I was studying universal principles and emotions, for over fifteen years but when my mom – my best friend – died at age 56, my entire being was put to the test. At first I was furious and guilt ridden. I doubted everything I had learned. I realized that it was time to walk my walk. Seven days after mom transitioned I challenged myself to discover the ‘perfection/balance’ in her death. Within thirty days, after a miraculous experience, I became clear that the meaning of her life and her death were a creation of my own mind. Through her transformation, through my coming to terms with it, The Thank God I series was spawned,” – John says.

That new direction turned out to inspire the creation of Thank God I…®.

“In consulting with women who were abused , raped or molested, several of them came forward to express how they were finally thankful for what they went through… between these amazing women and what I learned from my own challenge, sharing appreciation became a life mission. The result was an inspired team of people working together to help one another evolve past their experience through appreciation ,” – John adds.

Rape, death, divorce, alcoholism…

Is it possible that, “ALL events are actually perfect?. We know that life doesn’t always ‘feel’ perfect. In fact half of our life will feel like complete crap! The perfection that exists is the perfect balance of experiencing positive and negative. Our challenge is in evolving past our illusions of positive or negative, to transcend judgment and appreciate in presence what is, as it is…”
