Hi, I’m Satya Colombo, and this page is a short introduction to my work as a professional consultant, healer, writer and magic maker. I traveled to the future when I wrote this page and foresaw some of the questions you brought with you today, so I’ve done my best to answer them here… ;)
Thanks for coming, I hope to bring a touch of magic, clarity and stardust to your day!
That’s me walking in Stockholm this past summer. I left my cozy mountain getaway in Ashland, Oregon, because life had gotten just a little too comfortable, and I’ve been on a quest around the world for my own version of paradise since early 2012…
How do you define ‘Paradise’?
Well, that’s a very good question — one I’ve been reflecting on since my late teens! For me it’s a life of true freedom, adventure and joy, living in alignment with the Fire of my Soul, doing amazing work, being among magical, creative noble men and women who live with integrity, celebrating the great gifts of the Universe every day, and always…being anywhere cozy near the sea!!
Where have you been since starting your journey?
I’ve been on a lot of journeys since I first left my home in Los Angeles at 17 — backpacking and merrymaking in Europe, university and 9/11 in New York, documenting the Zapatista revolution in Mexico, searching for enlightenment a year in India, coordinating Reality TV shows in LA and building an Interactive Media consulting and development business in Oregon, among others…
Since early 2012 I’ve traveled through most of Central America, found love in Nicaragua, and fell in love with Costa Rica where I lived for four months. Also fell madly in love with the Galapagos Islands and Ecuador in general, Buenos Aires (where my parents are from!), Stockholm, Ye Olde England, and Edinburgh, Scotland. All places where I’ve lived the most magical days of my life!
How do you work while you travel?
Let me tell you that is an ART!! When I find a place that I love, I stay for at least a month at a time. You can get a lot more value for your money when you stay put for a month or longer, and you get a deeper sense of the Soul and culture of a place — and yeah, you can get a lot more work done! I’m also a Businessworld Gold member of Regus, which is a wonderful company with offices I can use in most major cities around the world (free cappuccinos in some offices too!).
Here’s the ocean view terrace of a shared house I rented and worked at for 1.5 months in the divine land of Manuel Antonio, Costa Rica. My Gods was I in heaven here, surrounded by wild forest, birds, monkeys and the intoxicating smell of night-blooming flowers! (Sorry for no ocean to admire in this shot!)
What kind of work do you help people with?
I help rebel leaders, magical misfits, rainmakers, dreamers, movers and shakers — yes yes! – get to the root of their Core Essence and Soul Fire, and express the calling of their spirit through rainmaking projects, world-changing movements, and successful ventures that rock this world!
Can you share with us a little about what qualifies you for this work?
Like I need to qualify myself?! ;)
From 2008-2013 I consulted, developed and executed projects for conscious businesses and world-changing leaders, helping ignite huge movements for projects that matter — and netting millions of dollars in revenue – for well-known clients like Ashley Turner, Forks Over Knives, LA Yoga Magazine, and Shanti Generation. This was done through my interactive media consulting and development agency, iEnvision Media – a successful business I built from the ground up, serving dozens of clients on high-end online media and web design projects as Principal and Creative Director for five years.
There’s also been many years of training with masters, soul searching, personal development, spiritual practice, and following the calling of my Spirit to create transformative experiences and projects I’ve been blessed with.
What happened to your Interactive Media business?
I decided it was time to walk my talk, thrive in my True Strengths, and bring more Awesome to my life and work. So now when I work with people, I’m focused exclusively on two areas:
1. Going deep with clients through private consulting and partnering – as a Sustainable Growth and project development advisor on bigger project launches and ventures that really matter. It’s less hands on web development/project management, more hands on training, guidance and Awesomeness Development for my beautiful people.
2. Working with larger groups of people on awakening the Fire of your Spirit — helping build sustainable personal and professional growth, and bringin’ more magic into your life and the world!
The new name of my business is simple: Satya Colombo Media. Everything is now contained under one fortified roof, and you’re under it now: Fierce Wisdom with Satya Colombo.
This gives me more energy to focus on delivering the Awesome. Plus: Simple is Beautiful!
What sort of changes have you noticed in the world of online business and marketing since you started?
Wow, yeah — five years is an aeon in internet time! There were a lot of early “overnight success” stories back then, people I watched shoot high and burn out fast because they weren’t building sustainable growth — like shooting stars in the night that fizzle out – no real foundation, no real deep roots, and you know the tree just topples over from the weight…! (I was almost one of those shooting stars myself, burning out from pushing too much growth, too fast, but thankfully I reeled it back and eventually recovered!)
We’re still in the early years of the internet, but we’ve all grown up some now — as consumers and providers. Manipulative marketing has never worked great for really conscious people, but now you’ve got to dive deeper than ever into your real value, figure on how deliver a TON of that, and build real movements around your mission!
The kind of people you’re looking to connect with and serve — those who have one eye on the impact they’re making with every step they take — they don’t just respond to a marketing campaign anymore. They want to feel a sense of real life and Soul from you, to be lit up by your work and know they’re supporting a venture and a business that’s making a positive difference. People don’t want to be sold on anything, they want to come alive inside.
You’ve got to offer your people an experience they never forget — one that not only improves their lives, but stays with them for life!
OK, so how do I do that…?
Sure, I’ll just tell you the secret in two paragraphs! (Not really.) There’s no simple five-step recipe I’m going to be offering here, but the best approach for creating a product and experience that changes people for good — one that has them talking about you and remembering what you provided for life…? It’s one that’s rooted in Spirit, and delivers the vibrant essence of Soul Fire that its creators have built into it.
A successful business starts from the very core of the people running it — this is the foundation, the leading edge, AND the roots. From a strong and stable foundation your venture can grow up and spread far and wide, with your roots continually growing stronger and deeper. It’s not enough to have a website and a marketing plan anymore — if you want to create more exposure, real organic growth, and connect on a deeper level with the people you wish to serve, you’ve got to go deep into the Soul of your work, clear the clutter, and develop a campaign that skillfully reflects the core essence of who you are. (And you’ve gotta do it with Style baby!)
The world doesn’t need more websites and apps — the world needs projects and products developed with Keen Intelligence, Soul Fire Flow, and the stamp of Real Style!
What’s it like working with you?
It’s different for everyone, but I always go for the humor and lightness and magic in every situation. People often report a sense of clarity and ease, a newfound purpose and direction, Spirit Flow, breakthroughs and other magical things. It’s always better to hear it straight from the people who’ve worked with me, so I’ll put a few testimonials from my beloved clients and friends below. (There are more reports from past and present clients you can find elsewhere on this site too.)
Do you have a philosophy of life?
One of my teachers, Neem Karoli Baba, always said “Love all, Serve all, Remember God.” I’m not a religious man, but I believe strongly in the Divine Flow of Spirit that’s at the root of all existence, and I choose to live by that great Truth in all ways. I’m fond of the Native American approach of Walking in Beauty every day, and that’s what I strive for. I shared a prayer from the Navajo Way Blessing Ceremony here, ’cause it’s beautiful, (and it goes hand in hand with the Zen approach of Silent Resonance I’ve also written about.)
What’s the most exciting thing that’s ever happened to you?
Whoah — deep question, I like! :)
There’s two defining moments in my life I can point to. The first was a spontaneous experience of pure awakening that happened in a Vipassana retreat in Tiruvannamalai, South India, where my mind melted away…for weeks I was on fire with the pure Essence of my Soul! That was the most mind-blowing and fun experience of my life until last year, when I overcame a sh*t-ton of resistance and launched my Soul Fire project from Costa Rica in 2012, the Fire of Love Experience. I’ve been privileged to lead a community of nearly 100 beautiful firewalkers through this special process of awakening, Flow and rediscovering the magic of our soul’s calling!
Most recently this work has evolved into a new project called the SOULFIRE CODE, which is just, again, mind-blowingly amazing. I’m surrounded by dozens of the most wonderful, mystical and magical people I could imagine, we’re supporting one another, and bravely stepping into the Great Mystery in our lives and work. It’s all done virtually so I can continue my journey, yet the connections being forged between us are so strong and intimate, it’s divine!
Can you help me do what you’ve done? I want to create a stronger movement around the work that really matters to me!
That depends a lot on you, what it is you want to accomplish, and how ready and willing you are to do the real work around diving into your Soul Fire, turning the dark parts into Light, and bringing the Rain! The best way to find out is just send me an email below, and start the conversation. If it’s a good match for both of us, you can book a private SOULFIRE SESSION with me, and we can work on bringing the magic in your life and work together!
Questions? Connect Here:

Questions? (Don’t hold back, I’m waiting to hear from you!)
All communications and emails with me are 100% private and confidential. Can’t wait to hear what magic you’ve got cooking! :)
“You were skillful at quickly getting to the heart of the issues blocking me from achieving my potential in my business. And the clearing you performed and ongoing support you provided were not just of concrete business value, but also of deep spiritual value. You provided me with exactly what I was looking for, and also what I didn’t know I needed!You’ve turned me on to many sources of information to educate myself about smart ways of doing business. And you let me know about online vendors providing services I needed that I doubt I would have found on my own. You’ve also given me a much needed confidence boost that I’m not crazy, and that my ideas for my business can actually work.
You provide a really valuable service in getting all of us with big dreams out there living our glorious dharma. I see you as a catalyst for transformation. When a big vision lies dormant in someone, the best thing they could do for themselves is work with you to catalyze their own individual transformation, so they can in turn catalyze others with their vision.
I found that the changes in my understanding as a result of working with you positioned me to make significantly more money, more easily, in my practice. My investment paid off!! I’ve already recommended you to several friends running heart-fueled, passion-based, change-making businesses. ”

“It’s a great feeling having Satya and his team supporting my websites! Satya is very fair in his pricing and in today’s internet business world that is often a subjective reality at best. It’s great knowing your back is covered and that you have someone who is as interested in your web business success as you are.
Thanks Satya! I appreciate all you do!”
“You have a very effective and communicative team running, and I think that makes all the difference in the world. I like things to run very organized and efficiently, so I was very impressed, and the final product came out great!
A lot of times when you’re having a website developed it makes you kind of nervous, because you don’t really understand what’s going on behind the scenes, but your team was very good at expressing and describing all that, and keeping us up to date. The whole experience for our clientele is more enhanced and user friendly now. Our course registration is going to run more smoothly, our email newsletter is moving to a whole different level, the accessibility for our CD’s is improved, whether ordering online or directly through us…everything’s organized much better, and it runs more efficiently.
I would absolutely recommend working with you to a colleague. Your communication, your design, your technical experience — all of that really comes to light in the process. I couldn’t ask for better!”
- Marnee Long, Program Director, Traditional Osteopathic Studies with James Jealous, D.O.
“iEnvision has been terrific. They are there when you need them – very responsive and innovative.”
- John C., Forks Over Knives / Monica Beach Media
“Thanks, Satya! I really appreciate all your help, support + guidance…more than you know! You ROCK!!! You shine the light BRIGHT!”

This time is the most pivotal moment in my life!
Breakthrough after breakthrough, and it’s flowing and easy. I totally feel my ego dissolving now. Knots are loosening. I’m enjoying my friendships in a new way. The pressure to perform in a certain way inhibited so much of my self-expression, work patterns, health, relationships, creativity, everything! I’m releasing it, and I see the pathway clearly now.
I see who I want to serve, how I want to serve, and how I want to connect. It’s all falling into place. I’m reclaiming so much of who I really am. It’s a miracle. I will keep you posted on more developments! Thanks so much Satya! You are awesome!
