My name is Emmett Phil Coriat and I became a victim of this Nature dis-connection epidemic.
Based in Boston, as Partner for a leading Healthcare Advisory firm, I was closing 9-figure deals in the field of healthcare technologies and increasingly successful at it. Following a traditional dis-connected business mindset, I was focused on performance. Like a fish trying to live without water, and without knowing how to see water, I ignored the calling from my true home, Nature, allowing stress and burnout to build under the surface of my inner self. I had forgotten that time is a thief and that we are finite beings. Life reminded me brutally of that fact. I had to grieve both my parents in the span of 9 months (a truly symbolic time period in hindsight).
The tipping point came with the abrupt end of the toxic relationship I was in. The trick was done. My heart was broken and my brain felt fried.
I had gone from thrive to survive in less than a year.
And truthfully, I did not see it coming !
