Introducing Wellness Expert James Garrett

Introducing Wellness Expert James Garrett

We are excited to welcome James Garrett to our team of wellness experts at Red Mountain Resort.  

James has spent more than a decade studying and teaching the psychology of success, and unpacking the brain science behind what makes human beings thrive. Having built a highly successful social startup—and going through a major burnout along the way—he believes we need to reevaluate the way we live, work, and innovate. He is passionate about turning academic knowledge of the human brain into practical tools that anyone can use to change not only their life, but the world.

“We live in a go, go, go society and it's often hard to slow down, press pause, and take the life-changing steps of self-care. The biggest roadblock I see is people not giving themselves permission to take care of their bodies and minds,” James says. “Fortunately, forming positive habits is just a skill set—something anyone can learn. Your brain is built for transformation.”

A rare combination of coach, scientist, trainer, and entrepreneur, James is the founder of Brain by Design and has spoken on stages ranging from Harvard and TEDx to Silicon Slopes and Founder’s Weekend. He has coached and trained leaders at companies including Intermountain Healthcare, YoungLiving, BusyBusy, In What Language, and Zonos. In 2019, he launched the Deep Change Project, a year-long journey to discover what’s possible on the outer edges of human potential and neuroplasticity.

James adds a new complimentary wellness discussion to our core programming as well as private sessions.  

The Brain-Wellness Connection (Thursdays at 1:30 pm, Bryce Canyon Room)

In this talk, you'll learn how to incorporate the science of self-care into all aspects of your daily life with brain-based tips to regularly recharge your energy. Instead of feeling better for a few days, learn how to make wellness a habit for life.

Map Your Path to Wellness (50-minute session, $200)

James will guide you on your path to wellness using evidence-based tools to build positive habits so you become your best self through daily implementation. Transform what you have learned at Red Mountain into a step-by-step system that will help you stick to your goals even when the going gets tough. Limited sessions available.   

“I absolutely love the experience and feeling of Red Mountain,” James says. “From the day I stepped on the property, it was clear to me that this is a place of healing, wellness, and respite.”
