Each presentation is quite different, depending on the energy of the audience and where they feel moved to go. It's a night of fun, growth and introspection. This presentation is not to be missed!
"There is an old saying, 'the two most important days in your life, are the day you are born, and the day you know why.' After viewing Brian Benson's film short, Guitar Man, I was sure he must know why he was born. He intimately shares his own life, so that others might be inspired and enriched. I have seen his films, read his books and seen him present live, and no matter which form you are lucky enough to be touched by his message, he will make an impact on your life. He is a brilliant combination of all things great and humble, and walks his talk. Brian Benson is the conduit of kindness, and he will be among the greats that motivate others to find their greatness."

"Brian volunteered to give a presentation to 20 adjudicated youth at a youth correctional facility. These are young men who have seen too much for their young ages, and as such are guarded and skeptical as a rule. I watched Brian disarm them with his genuineness, respect, and message of hope, and I continue to witness the power his presentation had in the lives of the young men I work with whom most of society has discarded as a lost cause. It seems to me that if we do not offer opportunities for reformation the youth will have no reason to change; Brian provided viable options to the youth by asking them to explore what was within instead of believing the messages from without."
- Stacey Varner M.A. - QMHP, Psychiatric Social Worker
"Brian's "Introduction to Balance" workshop is ideal for anyone desiring to get his/her life "back on track." This workshop not only helps assess where you are now, but most importantly...where you desire to be. Brian walks you through various aspects of your current life, helping you to identify those circumstances that actually impede your "being true to yourself." By virtue of identifying and re-focusing on those elements, which are aligned with your "true self" or "heart's desires," he shows us how we can re-align our lives into peace, harmony and true balance."
-Joseph C. Giampapa M.A. - Empowerment Specialist
"I really enjoyed Brian's Balance Workshop. It was great! I loved learning that the keys to staying in balance are also the keys to feeling alive! I also loved that we completed a four-page worksheet, thus allowing us to have a tangible, take-home reminder of the great information that we learned. There was a perfect balance between the time listening to Mr. Benson and sharing our thoughts with the class. It was a great workshop and I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in personal development. I look forward to attending another one of Brian's workshops in the future."
-Teresa Adams (Reno, NV)
"Brian's workshop, "An Introduction to Balance" was very enjoyable and helpful. He encouraged the participants to take a close look at what activities, practices and routines are important to keep them in balance without making it about being selfish or self-centered. "Being in balance" helps us to be happier, more peaceful, and more productive and effective contributors to the community and to the world."
-Andy Hill (Truckee, CA) - Director, For Goodness Sake
"Male intuition is hard to explain. All men have it, but most either don't understand it or never effectively develop it. To Brian, it's absolutely indispensable."
-Phyllis Stuart - Producer/Artist
"Taking Brian's workshop was a commitment to myself. He gave me simple tools to take care of myself and the steps to help focus on my priorities. Brian helped me identify the areas that need more attention in my life and brought my strengths to view. I love the group forum and felt that I learned by sharing in a safe environment. It has been a pattern of mine to care for others, Brian reminded me that it starts with ourselves. I highly recommend Brian's books and workshop to anyone who is ready to work on themselves in a loving and gentle way.
-Karen Kain (Los Angeles, CA)
"Brian came to our church and did a class on balance for our teens. Through Brian's workshop our teens learned a lot about balance in their own lives. Even though it is important to give to others, we must remember to take care of ourselves as well, and Brian's workshop really helped us understand that! The youth had a great time and have told me how they were implementing some of the tools Brian taught them. Thank you so much Brian, for taking the time to come and present your workshop to our teen group."
-Julie Stone (Reno, NV) Center for Spiritual Living - Youth and family Director
"Brian was a guest speaker and presenter at Unity of the Sierra in January 2012. Brian was referred to us by a congregant who had seen his award winning film “The Guitar Man’ and was inspired. Brian came and shared the film and some of his other short inspirational films and shared his experiences and insights behind the creation of his films and the writing of his book “Brian’s List, 26 1/2 Ways to Use Ideas on How to Live a Fun, Balanced, Healthy Life.” His presentation was interactive and engaging.
He spoke to a packed house that morning as people were drawn to his message. Most importantly people left the service inspired by this man who by his example and sharing his experiences encourages people to step out of their comfort zones and cultivate their inner gifts. His ideas that he shared on living a balanced life were well received and people began using and discussing his ideas. Congregants requested that we have Brian back for a workshop on living a balanced life. We had him back and the workshop was very well attended and we received very positive feedback. I would highly recommend Brian as a presenter, workshop leader and guest speaker."
-Denise Frueh (Carson City, NV) Unity of the Sierra - Office Administrator
