Chris Grosso Bio

“By sharing his life’s journey, Chris Grosso shines a light on our own.”
 —Jeff Bridges, Academy Award®-winning actor

Chris Grosso is not a spiritual teacher. He’s incredibly flawed, fucks up in countless ways on a daily basis, and isn’t afraid to say so. Chris is, however, extremely passionate about sharing the tools and techniques that have quite literally saved his life (and made him a little less of a fuck-up), in the hopes that they help others too.

Chris has written three books including, Indie Spiritualist (Beyond Words/Simon & Schuster, 2014), Everything Mind (Sounds True, 2105), and Dead Set On Living (Simon & Schuster/Gallery Books, 2018).  He also writes for Revolver Magazine, Fangoria, is a youth mental health group facilitator with Newport Academy and has spoken at a bunch of fancy-schmancy festivals and conferences (as well as even more events that were significantly less than fancy-schmancy). 

That said, Chris thrives most while working with people who struggle with mental health issues of all kinds. He speaks and leads groups in detoxes, yoga studios, rehabs, youth centers, hospitals, conferences, and festivals worldwide. He is a member of the advisory board for Drugs over Dinner, hosts The Indie Spiritualist Podcast on Ram Dass’s esteemed Be Here Now Network, and is a member of The Evolutionary Leaders.

His work has been endorsed by a diverse mix of celebrated individuals including Jeff Bridges, Ram Dass, Tony Hawk, Bam Margera, Sharon Salzberg, Alex Grey, Richard Rohr, Tara Brach, Ken Wilber, Jack Kornfield, Andrew Harvey, Dr. Lissa Rankin, Robert Thurman, Treach (Naughty By Nature), and more.
