Casey Lake is a martial arts instructor, spiritual guide, and trainer and practitioner of practices stemming from his background of transpersonal hypnotherapy and neuro-linguistic programming, and over a decade’s experience in Chinese, Japanese, and Russian martial arts and healing systems. Having received extensive training in Eastern and Western esoteric schools of philosophical and mystical development, Casey is a student and teacher dedicated to knowing and exploring all sides of oneself and synthesizing all experience into integrated self-knowledge and true awakened wisdom.
As an accomplished martial artist and coach, Casey holds ranks and certificates in over 5 styles of Chinese, Japanese, and Russian Martial Arts and holds over 15 black belt ranks and titles. He has taught, operated, and owned martial schools since he was 21 years old and has traveled around the world teaching and training with the masters.
Casey began his training at the age of 13 in Seibukan Jujutsu and later became an Uchideshi (Apprentice student) under Julio Toribio -Kancho. He studied and became a 7th Dan in Seibukan Jujutsu, a 7th Dan in Bujinkan Budo Taijutsu (Ninjutsu), a 4th Dan in Enshin itto Ryu Battojutsu (Sword Art) and received much training in Aikido and Karate. He spent many years fully emerged in the Japanese styles and traveled to Japan many times to train with many Grand Masters such as the living Ninja Hatsumi Massaaki -Soke, Machida Kenshinsai -Kancho, and others.
Around his early 20's, Casey started picking up different styles of Chinese martial arts, especially Baguazhang, and continues to practice Yang Style Tai chi as well. He studies with Sifu Dr. Jerry Alan Johnson and his Brother Sifu Dr. Kelly Lake in the Daoist styles of Martial Art, Nei Gong, Chi Gong, Mysticism, and Internal Alchemy. These styles have drastically influenced his overall practice and personal cultivation methods for internal power and self-realization.
Additionally, after a friend gave him some copies of Vladimir Vasiliev training videos, the Founder of Systema -Russian Martial Art, Casey discovered a passion for this dynamic, creative, and holistic system of development which became his main style for many years. From 2013 to 2017, he ran the Integrative Martial Arts Academy in Seaside, CA where he led martial arts, fitness, and coaching classes and hosted international seminars. Casey has had many trainings in various other martial arts and has always sought to have a beginner’s mind and learn as much as he can from styles such as boxing, MMA, Mantis, Wing Chun, and influences such as Yoga, Gymnastics, Parkour, Shooting, and Outdoor Wilderness Survival.
Casey’s passion is helping ignite light within all people for an enlightened civilization through core spiritual wisdom teachings, meditation, martial arts, and hypnosis and trance consciousness. He has been fascinated with the power of consciousness and the mind’s ability to generate higher levels of human experience and enhanced mental programming for greater success and self-mastery. Hypnotherapy is guided hypnosis, a trance-like state of consciousness achieved with the help of a hypnotherapist to bring about the internal work of healing and the fine-tuning of self to what we truly desire. This trance-like state is similar to being completely absorbed in a book, movie, music, or even one's own thoughts or meditation, akin to a deep daydream-like experience with a heightened perspective of self. In this state, clients can turn their attention completely inward to find and utilize the natural resources deep within themselves that can help them make changes or regain control in certain areas of their life. Casey offers hypnotherapy for clients struggling with trauma, addictions, and phobias; inner child therapy and shadow work; enhancing performance in health, relationships, and business; as well as other contexts.
Drawing from time-tested ancient awakening teachings, tools, and methods, Casey is optimistic in the progression and evolution of world consciousness through helping all people transform old patterns of fear and illusion into personal freedom and awakened power so they may take action and be in full harmony with who they really are. He has been a dedicated student in spiritual and personal development his whole life and gains deep joy from direct time spent with others at his classes, retreats, and one-on-one coaching/therapy sessions in healing and transformation, expanding consciousness, heart, and life.
