A letter from Bucky:
A NEVER-ENDING JOURNEY
I’ve been immersed in the world of personal development my entire life. I have trained with multiple different teachers and leaders; studied and practiced dozens of fields and traditions; helped shape over 100 transformative events and worked with just about 100,000 people from all over the planet.
I have combined my mastery of psychological disciplines and accelerated learning with my expertise in ancestral rituals and turned them into unique, powerful experiences designed to make you feel that fire that is burning within and to fuel it so it remains lit permanently.
Everything I’ve done; everything I do, has had one single objective: stepping into my own shoes. Because you see, I realized that, by reaching my own potential, I help you reach yours.
I AM HERE TO SERVE YOU
God Bless, Aloha! Bucky

“Life has this way of making us get out of tune with our essence and moving us away from our path. It´s time to claim what we own, look fear in the eye and realize it actually has a ridiculously funny face.” – Bucky O’Neill

“I would highly recommend Bucky’s services! I feel so lucky and completely blessed to be working with him. He has held my hand and helped me create all my programs, retreats and events. He is practical, smart and clever! I truly believe that if i didn’t work with him I would have created something average. Bucky is thorough, committed and shows up 1000%. He makes you accountable, work hard and does this in a gentle and caring way. Bucky is committed and has shown up to help me communicate my message to suit many different audiences so my clients can now get an amazing experience with my offerings. I could not have done this without him!” DR. CARLI AXFORD, Creator of The Spinal Flow Healing Technique
“Running a single training for 28 days can be daunting. Running four trainings simultaneously, with international faculty, 60+ participants has the potential for logistical and curriculum nightmares. Bringing Bucky in to consult in 2016 was the best decision we made. His unique experience of a lifetime in transformational events, higher level planning, accelerated learning and overall event orchestration was invaluable. At the end of the 28 days, it wasn’t just our participants that had received an incredible learning experience, but our facilitators, staff and team as well.” JAMES MATTINGLEY Facilitator, Teacher & Coach
“Airbnb is our biggest client, and we needed to bring the best of the best together to make sure we delivered a high-quality experience. We sought Bucky because he’s top tier talent, and we knew he was going to help us deliver more than what our client expected – which is exactly what he helped us accomplish! His attention to the details that make impact is what helped us turn it up a notch, and I’m really happy to have had his guidance and wisdom. Bucky is at the top of his game and we’re fortunate to have his gifts being contributed to the work we do.” JAY BROWN Founder of Driven by Love, Inc. Creators of The Evo Room Experience.
“One thing that Bucky can do for you is see the learning outcomes that you have for your client and find ways for you to create interactive experiences, activities and games for those outcomes. From the way that you stand, the tone in your voice, lighting, music, the questions you ask, everything that you do creates experience and learning for your clients, Bucky can help you to be purposeful and mindful with everything you do as a teacher, facilitator or trainer.” CHARLES SMITH, Quantum Learning Network
“I have had the pleasure of working with Bucky for the past nine years. Over this time, I have worked alongside him and have seen firsthand his commitment to those he is teaching. His first priority is to be present with his participants so he can serve them best. He is a person of high moral character, which shines through, in his every interaction. Bucky has years and years of experience and hundreds of hours in facilitation training making him capable of facilitating learning for almost any content. His confidence is matched by his competence. I was once told to hire for character and train for skills. It is a rare occasion when you find a compassionate person who encompasses both.” Amy Smith, Master Facilitator, Curriculum Director, Writer
“I have known Bucky his entire life, and over the past several years have brought him in to develop and facilitate numerous programs for high school and college students. He is one of the most dynamic, brightest, insightful and talented facilitators I have ever worked with. Every client wants him back again and again. Bucky makes a lasting difference in the lives of the students he teaches.” Carol Fetzer, Former Regional Director, Quantum Learning. CEO Forte Speakers & Forte Speakers Hawaii
