About Constantine Dhonau
Raised amidst a rich Peruvian shamanic heritage and steeped in the coastal landscapes of Florida, Constantine’s life journey is a fusion of traditional wisdom and modern psychological insights. His early years were spent under the nurturing guidance of his mother. She is an apprentice to Don Oscar Miro-Quesada, the esteemed guardian of the Pachakuti Mesa shamanic tradition. This spiritual lineage laid the foundation for his lifelong fascination with the labyrinthine intricacies of the human mind and behaviour.
Constantine’s academic endeavours led him to the New College of Florida, the state honours college. He honed there his research understanding in the field of Psychology. His work focused mainly on self-compassion within the LGBTQIA+ community. He ultimately presented his thesis research at the prestigious Columbia University in New York.
Post-college, Constantine embarked on a transformative journey as a wilderness therapy guide with Open Sky, one of the world’s premier wilderness therapy companies. Over 8,000 hours spent navigating the majestic Colorado mountains and the solitary Utah desert amplified his understanding of the healing powers of nature. This experience allowed him to mentor people in crisis, and train senior guides. It also helped him expand his spirituality, Daoism, through studying the Dao De Jing and the I Ching.

As a certified life coach, he empowers individuals and couples to create harmonious relationships and conquer life’s hurdles with resilience, drawing upon a synthesis of evidence-based techniques, spiritual practices, and his own unique approach.
