Instructor Biography

Nate Fowler, Founder of the Sigil Social Foundation

I am an international author and speaker and have devoted my life to helping people find their direction and giving them new hope, power, and understanding with the techniques I have developed and researched. My specialty training has led me to create Power Dynamics™, a groundbreaking sociological system that translates relationships into understanding.

I recently started publishing my sociology-based relationship and communications research findings from the last six years in the “Relationship Foundations” series of workshops. My upcoming book, Power Your Relationship!, will be released in the summer of 2014.

Founding the Sigil Social Foundation in 2012 was one of the highlights of my career, creating a path for domestic abuse families to escape and recover in a way that has never been done before. Because of the revolutionary techniques behind this powerful institution, I have been asked by personal growth groups to speak about overcoming grief, building happy and successful relationships, accelerating learning, and finding the right path in life.

With thousands of hours in personal training and breakthrough sessions with hundreds of clients, I have a vast amount of therapeutic experience behind me. Having spent more than fifteen years in the corporate world and more than that as a successful independent businessman in the web development and business image consulting fields, I have grown clients’ businesses from sapling to redwood with my own unique style of direction that incorporates what the client wants while making sure they are rewarded for their efforts.
