Ken Bruer

Life Coach, Poet

Ken is an immediate calming presence whose compassion and kindness radiate to others. As an accomplished life coach and poet, his wisdom and relatability helps people live the life they long for.

After a successful business career spanning two decades, Ken became a licensed psychotherapist with a specialty of working with individuals in transition, couples and men’s groups. He is a pioneer in the applications of somatic psychology, pre- and perinatal psychology, neuroscience, Polyvagal Theory, epigenetics, and mindfulness. His knowledge and guidance as a teacher and coach have helped thousands of people discover and live the life they always dreamed of.

Ken encourages people to be curious and open and to simply be with what comes, noticing what comes up without giving it meaning. He invites them to welcome what arises, especially if it is surprising, and to be gentle, respectful, and curious with whatever emerges.

“Ken holds an innate ability to calm your nervous system through his presence - in person, online, or even over the phone. I learned how to slow down and calm down through Ken’s teachings and poetry. I had no idea healing could look like that.”

Shauna Ireland - Founder, ASW

“I'm so grateful to Ken for holding such sacred space to let me feel, be soft, and really open to the tenderness I have been yearning to give myself. You are such magical beings - and I'm grateful to get to share space and learn from you.”
