Welcome, I’m Dave Ursillo.

I believe that becoming more of your True Self is how you change the world. I’m a writer, author and yoga teacher who helps conscientious self-starters and everyday yogis live unapologetic lives, and become leaders without followers.


Live Your Leadership.

After September 11, 2001, I wanted to be a part of positive change in the world. I sought a career path in public service.

But disillusioned to the system and feeling held back, by 2009, I had quit my job and committed to sharing words and lessons with the world, one soul at a time.

Here’s My Story »


Change the World? Start Within.

From weekly blog posts to books, workshops to destination retreats, online programs and local yoga classes, I teach writing, creativity, storytelling and yoga to help souls access their inner wisdom.

I believe that your inner truth is all you require to live a brilliant life of meaning, while making the world a better place.
