The Way Within
WhatThe name The W.A.Y. Within stands for Who Are You Within? And as I started to ask myself this very question and dive deeper I started an incredible journey of self discovery. This website is not about me though, it’s about us. Were all on a journey in this lifetime. Sometimes it’s not very clear, what the purpose or the meaning behind it all is, and that’s what makes life so magical. We’re here to learn and experience and grow.
WhyMy intentions behind creating this website, show and facebook group and pages is to provide a platform to share my experiences and adventures as well as others around me. By sharing with each other we can inspire, teach and support each other along the way. We are all on a path, to somewhere, in order to find it I believe we must start by looking within. Welcome to The WAY Within!
A bit about GMy name is Giovanni (you can call me G for short). I’m the host of the Way Within show (www.thewaywithin.me) Founder of The Ideal Changes (a social event intended to raise consciousness and create meaningful connections with other human beings) and Co-Founder of Luminous Consciousness Advancement Centre a magical retreat center 1 hour north of Toronto.
After reaching what I thought was a certain level of success in life I realized I had never defined success in terms of what it meant to me. After feeling unfulfilled, confused and borderline depressed I realized I had to have some other 'purpose' being on this earth at this time.
After a ton of personal soul searching, exploration and self reflection, the fog finally started to clear and my mission/life’s purpose started to take focus.
As I found balance and passion in my life again all things started flowing much more freely and a new definition of success started to take shape.
I’ve always been an entrepreneur and life adventurer (seeker). I just realized one day in order to be truly successful I needed to merge my passions with my entrepreneurialism. I have a love for creating deep connections with others and also creating environments for these types of connections to take place.
I'm always seeking out the next consciousness expanding experience whether it be climbing mountains in my shorts with Wim Hof, partipiting in traditional Ayahuasca ceremonies, or challenging my mind and body to see what new limits can be reached and how I can learn about myself by getting out of my comfort zone (for example I embarked on a 55 day juice fast this year and lost 40 pounds!!)
I love getting involved and collaborating on new projects that I am aligned with. My main intentions these days are to create new Ideas and ways to help improve the planet for not only the people currently living on it but for those who we will leave it to one day! My proudest achievement to date is being a father to my two beautiful children.
Ep.4 Fasting Q&A plus Skype Call with Martin Tornberg
After the incredible response from my recent article what I learned from not eating solid food for 50 days I had a bunch of questions people were asking so I tried to answer them. I'm not an expert these are only my thoughts and opinions based on my experience. I then have an interesting conversation with a new Facebook friend Martin Tornberg!
Ep.3 Into the ice with the Iceman Wim Hof – The Way Within
In this episode I got to spend some time talking with Wim about who he was before he was the iceman. I was fortunate enough to train with him for a week in Colorado where I became certified as the first Wim Hof Instructor in Canada. You don't want to miss this
Ep.2 The Master Fast: 108 days with no solid food. One Man’s Journey to Heal himself!
Recently I decided to embark on a fast. Not just any fast but the mother of all fasts, the Master fast. I have tried a few "juice" fasts in the past but nothing can compare to this. I created an ebook you can download at
