"Chris showed me the tools to begin this training and provided the support to begin my own expeditions into the inner wilderness.”
"I have been fortunate enough to work with Chris in a variety of capacities. Anyone engaging his services will have only one regret: that they didn’t start with Chris sooner.
If you’re looking for orthodox, by-the-book solutions, you are in the wrong place. If you want a creative, resourceful approach that helps you see life, business, challenges and opportunities from a perspective completely outside your normal frame of reference, keep talking to Chris. His approach is unusual, enlightening, frustrating, terribly honest, and just what you need if you want life-changing or organization-changing solutions. Chris will not help you to “think outside the box.” He will take you on a journey to a place where boxes don’t exist.
In my case, when I first started talking to Chris, I was commuting 50 miles one way to a difficult job. Now I bike to my dream job and spend extra time with my lovely family. Chris didn’t tell me what to do or necessarily how to do it, but he did release a drop of inspiration into a deep body of water inside me, and the ripples expanded and grew into ideas, actions, and wonderful, glorious change."

"It is difficult to put in words how and what Chris provides.
One could say he walks to the beat of his own drum.
This is true but what is more accurate is that he listens to the underlying universal rhythm inherent in all of us that we have forgotten.
His ability to be in touch with this wisdom and share with others in his amazing story telling manner gives tremendous insights.
To be in the presence of such a translator is like being in the presence of a wise sage who can open your eyes to new perspectives on what is in front of you, memories of what is behind you and where you are now.
I hope that you take the steps to have Chris in your life.
I guarantee you won’t be disappointed.”

"6 stars out of 5. It all begins as you enter into the space of Puente Guidance, your senses will start to awaken more than they ever have. The only thing to be ready for is to expand the view of the world one moves through and interacts. Chris Mathias, has crafted a network of inspirational 'do-ers' in all spaces including business, science, music, art, therapy and social change that will bringing their experiences to Puente Retreats. NOW is the time to go to any retreat, regardless of the title/topic to learn from Chris and his network on 'How to do things differently' and get in touch with truly what matters. It was an honor to be a part of 'Rendering Talent', the first of Puente's retreats and making history. We are never 'ready' and NOW is the moment. I look forward too participating in many more retreats to come."
