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, just like we all are, but isn’t embarrassed to say so. Chris just chooses to get raw and vulnerable about said flaws—and his many insecurities—then most. He is, however, extremely passionate about sharing the tools and techniques that have quite literally, saved his life, in the hopes that they may help others.

By strange luck, Chris has been fortunate to write 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, is a youth mental health group facilitator with Newport Academy, and has spoken and performed at a bunch of fancy-schmancy festivals and conferences (as well as even more events that were significantly less than fancy-schmancy.) Oh, and did we mention, he’s self-deprecating at times too?

That said, Chris is sincerely passionate about his work with people who are in the process of healing or struggling 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.

Oh, and for some very strange reason, 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, MC Yogi, Tara Brach, Ken Wilber, Jack Kornfield, Andrew Harvey, Lama Surya Das, Dr. Lissa Rankin, Bernie Siegel, Robert Thurman, Treach (Naughty By Nature), don Miguel Ruiz Jr., and more.

If you’re still reading, Chris promises to give you a hug in-person if your paths ever cross. And if you’re still reading, you must give some sort of shit, so visit him at: www.theindiespiritualist.com Or not, whatever. Just take care of yourself.
