About me

Gruezi, guten Tag, hello and thanks for visiting my site. My name is Daniel Marty and I was born and raised in Switzerland - best known for chocolate, cheese, Zurich, banks, cows, mountains and probably Roger Federer. Equipped with a formal education in fine carpentry and a bachelor in education, I spent most of my working years teaching in classrooms or designing and building stuff that's made of wood. In my late twenties a powerful spiritual transformative awakening ignited a quest for deeper meaning and purpose in life. That continuous journey of personal growth led to intensive healing retreats and advanced education in coaching and organizational development as well as aquatic body work, non-violent communication, conflict management and most recently holistic wellness yoga.

I believe that this multifaceted background fueled by a lifelong commitment to move  inward and forward - personally, professionally and spiritually, enables me to help my clients successfully to do the same and shift towards a healthier, happier more purpose driven life - but you'll be the judge of that.

In 2006 I moved from Switzeerland to the United States and live now with my wife Jodi on Orcas Island - the gem of the San Juan Islands who's naural beauty captures the heart of thousands who love the outdoors every year. Together we are running, a successful vacation and retreat destination, providing people from around the world an opportunity to rejuvenate and restore body, mind and spirit.

I look forward to your call and helping you to create a life and a living you truly love.

Live inspired
Daniel Marty

 make    wise choices

We all know how it feels to have a job that pays the bill but isn't a match for your natural skills, talents or interests. We've all been in relationships that lack intimacy and growth. We've all had great intentions but didn't follow through. It's so easy to get too comfortable, slowly drifting into negative lifestyle habits that is taking a toll on our well-being. We can't change the past but we can alway chose to make better choices today - and that's what 'Inspired Living Retreats' is all about. Helping you to take charge of a life you truly love and use a challenge as an opportunity to grow stronger.
