Daniel Eisenman

Normal is if someone decides to base their choices on culture and fitting in. Breaking normal would be basing your choices on what lights you up regardless of what it looks like. So, what lights you up? Go and do that.” – Daniel Eisenman

Are you living the life of someone else to fit in with the crowd?

Daniel EisenmanDaniel Eisenman has a raw and wild inner child and he wants to light yours up, too!

Why keep a lid on your growth and opportunities to thrive, especially if those limitations are self-imposed? Illuminate your subconscious shadows with this personal development retreat in book form.

Over the past decade of creating epic personal development retreats, Daniel Eisenman has traveled around the world experiencing beautiful, exotic settings and amazing people. His one big observation is that so many people keep the lid on their growth and passions. This is a self-imposed limitation ~ nobody tells us to do this!

  • You’ll get to feel what it means to be raw and vulnerable, excited and glowing with a sacred knowledge about your future.
  • You’ll learn to communicate with others in a way that cuts through the limitations we used to let entangle us.
  • You’ll have tools and insight for building your own tribe, be it your family or community or the world at large.
  • You’ll bridge the gap between heart and head to pursue real relationships (REAL-ationships) and your life’s passions.

Power Quotes From The Show

The name of the game is not to get distracted externally and pay attention internally. That is our joy of being human; to be able to create from within. - @DanielEisenman Click To Tweet

Remember Who You Are

“If you are not doing something because someone else said you can't do it, you have worshipped the man and you forgot that you are I am. It's time to remember what you are capable of, what great things are happening in your life, and to celebrate it.” – Daniel Eisenman

Avoiding External Distractions

“The name of the game is not to get distracted externally and pay attention internally. That is our joy of being human; to be able to create from within. I want to remind myself at this point to be internally focused because there are so many external distractions out there right now such as technology.” – Daniel Eisenman

Following Your Heart's Desire

“What is my heart desire? That feeling is like a hummingbird flickering nearby, calling me to catch it and commit to it.” – Daniel Eisenman

About Daniel Eisenman

Daniel EisenmanDaniel Eisenman graduated Pre-Med from Emory University with a BS (Key Acronym) in Biology & even took the MCAT about 10 years ago. Before applying to medical school to stay on the path of “NORMAL” as people advised him, he decided to “take a year off.” That year off has now turned into a decade of BREAKING NORMAL adventures throughout all 50 states and at least 20 countries.

He travels the world as a keynote speaker and facilitator of Breaking Normal Experiences / radical retreats and workshops (though he likes to call them playshops, as what's purer than play?) based on the principles of raw honesty and emotional freedom. He found that the common theme through his journey and experiences was that so many people seemed to be trapped in self-imposed prisons, keeping a lid on their genius, joy, & growth. Thus Breaking Normal was birthed as a way for people to free themselves from this self-imposed prison.
