about jason and sumaya
We are a joyfully married couple of 20 years. We met in Boulder, Colorado, in a Ph.D. program in education. It was love at first sight and we were married two years later. When we completed our doctorates, we stayed in Boulder and co-founded an innovative, award-winning middle and high school, The Watershed School.
We started our family around the same time and before long, we found ourselves struggling with exhaustion, overwork and overwhelm. Luckily for us, that’s when we first encountered the understanding known as The Three Principles. It completely changed our lives. Our marriage, our parenting, and our relationship to our work were all transformed in ways that bring us so much gratitude. There’s an ease and joy that we can count on, and a resilience that carries us through hard times.
During the last 16 years, we have deepened our grounding in the Principles, and we continue to experience the gifts that unfold without fail in our lives because of it. Several years ago, we decided to make a major career shift and we are now both coaches, partners in Blue Dot Coaching, working together to point our clients to their innate health and wisdom.
We invite you to join us, by phone, by video conference, or in person at Lucky Dog Ranch in Crested Butte, Colorado, where we live with our two teenage sons, four horses, three dogs, pond full of trout, and a garage full of skis and bikes.

Kind words from past clients
I absolutely love working with Jason. His approach to coaching is unique and refreshingly "simple". He is brilliant - I would highly recommend his services to anyone in need of help with any life circumstance or seeking personal growth.
-Stephanie from Colorado
Simply through thoughtful, open conversation, Jason has showed me how to move through the world with ease and grace. I’m not perfect, and that’s ok, because accepting that has allowed me the freedom to engage more meaningfully with the world and the people around me. Thank you, Jason, for helping me to become the man, father and husband I always knew I could be.”
— Jeff from Colorado
Working with Sumaya and her herd was EXACTLY what I was looking for. Both she and the horses held space for me to dive deeply into the things I've been working on in my personal life, and allowed me to see and understand my situation and outlook on my life. It doesn't matter where you are on your personal growth journey, Sumaya and her herd offer an incredible backdrop to open new levels of awareness, joy, connection and intuition. I couldn't recommend the experience more.
-Cayla from Colorado
Working with Jason has provided me a new level of ease in my life. Learning to recognize thoughts, the space between thoughts, and the quality of my thoughts has allowed grace, inspiration, and more creativity to show up in my life. In many ways I’ve found empowerment, confidence, boundaries, and compassion along with unexpected delightful opportunities. I so appreciate working with Jason. He is great at clearly communicating the process, and his knowledge of the 3 principles and his generosity in sharing how they can be applied to every area of life feels uplifting and encouraging.
— Jessica from New York
Jason guides you to learn more about yourself in a very short amount of time. The results are more patience, less frustration, more creativity, less stress and anxiety and all of a sudden a realization that troubling issues you felt needed attention just a short time have dissipated without any attention to them at all. Brilliant.
-Darcie from Colorado
My time with Sumaya and her beautiful herd of horses was a sublime experience. Sumaya’s gentle, inviting yet assured guidance to move me into a deeper state of presence with myself and with the horses was a powerful beginning. The work in the round pen put me in touch with a sense of wholeness, sovereignty and trust in myself, while being in loving and respectful relationship with another Being. It never ceases to amaze me how the horses intuitively create experiences for learning that evoke instant transformation! Sumaya is compassionate, wise, passionate and heartful. She skillfully evoked the felt sense of growth and expanded possibility. This work has real power and magic to it!
-Sandra from Colorado
My discussions with Jason have had a profound impact on my life. I was clearly ready to make a significant change but I could not have done it without his guidance.
I am more consistently kind to myself. I have deeper patience and compassion for my kids. I have connected further with my wife while also giving her more space – an amazing balance which we treasure. And I have (almost) effortlessly, with Jason’s support, begun to tap into wisdom and compassion in my professional life and other personal relationships.
It is clear to me that Jason’s thoughtful and provocative guidance is a passion for him. Being in this conversation with him is like serious play with a joyful trusted advisor who shares wisdom in simple yet profound ways.
— Abe from Oregon
Working with Sumaya and the horses was an incredible experience. Meeting and connecting with the horses was magical; somehow I felt such a deep and immediate connection. I walked away with a truly powerful personal message that has helped me capitalize on so many opportunities in my life.
— Hannah from Colorado
Jason is a magician! With ease and open-hearted presence, Jason is masterful at helping you see, through stories, observations and deceptively simple but profound diagrams, the ways that our states of mind create our experience. He makes profound spiritual teachings very down to earth and accessible, even palpable as you are with him. My sessions with Jason helped me deepen my sense of trust in life, my intuition and my inspirations. And, he skillfully guided me to divert my attention away from efforting and ‘fixing problems’ and instead acknowledge my state of mind to allow shifts to happen naturally. Ahhh…more ease, more peace - what a gift!
-Sandra from Colorado
Jason is thoughtful, wise, and knows his stuff. I am always amazed how consistently I leave our conversations feeling lighter, more confident, and more connected to those around me as well as to my own heart. Jason listens deeply, has a fantastic sense of humor, and is really good at what he does. Working with him has been an absolute gift - not only for me, but for my family and colleagues as well.
-Erica from Montana
Going into the equine coaching with Sumaya, I had no expectations but rather a curiosity of what I might learn and hopefully have some insights during our time together. I found that as I let my personal thinking fade into the background I became completely present with my horse. Nothing mattered except for what I was experiencing with the horses and I could actually see with my eyes that the horse was reflecting my energy! Clarity and connectedness came to me and I was guided by Sumaya to uncover a new life understanding that was in me all along. I now reflect on my experience regularly and am reminded of my learning. What an amazing gift! Thank you, Sumaya!
— Emily from Colorado
In each of our conversations, Jason has been able to point me towards the wisdom of the Principles. Not only has my understanding deepened, there is also a ripple effect that has brought me greater optimism and peace.
I invited Jason to facilitate workshops at the school I lead. He was very effective in guiding others to their own insights and to seeing a hopeful new understanding of the real source of their stress and anxiety. Jason worked skillfully with both adults and teens, all of whom recognized his mastery and deep compassion.
— Janet from California
I want to extend my deepest gratitude to you for your thoughtful services. You led us through a meditative, deeply insightful, and reflective dialectic with each other and with ourselves...all in service of this beautiful institution. Thank you for opening your heart and your mind to us and with us.
— Yasmine from California
Sumaya’s approach to equine guided coaching was gentle, well-informed and a created a lovely trajectory for guided learning. The majestic nature of the horse creates a perfect vehicle for Sumaya to reach into one’s thoughts and draw attention to the here and now of what is happening in the heart and energy of the human body. Sumaya is a delight and I am filled with gratitude.
— Adge from Colorado
Jason is very responsive and respectful. He has great insight and analogies to help put things into a new perspective that get you back on track in life, be it professional, personal or both!

"The belief that it takes time to find wisdom is one of the greatest fallacies on earth. Wisdom is not learned - it is unfolded from within."
