We all entered this existence as love, from love. Our most profound contribution to a more loving and harmonious world is to remember who we are, to be our authentic self.
Over the past 20 years, I've leveraged the studies of behavioral and cognitive science, consciousness, and culture to help people and brands understand the essence of who they are and how to captivate their audience.
I've consulted for organizations and movements such as American Indian Movement, Keep a Child Alive, Genocide Intervention Fund, ONE Campaign, International Justice Mission, Lawyers Without Borders, Save Darfur, Human Rights Watch, Freedom House, USAID, and the governments of the United States, Nigeria, Rwanda, and Kenya. In 2012 I co-authored the book Wisdom Meets Passion with NYT bestselling author, Dan Miller. Since 2016, I've hosted Noetic, a philosophy podcast discussing indigenous wisdom, humanity, wonder, and self-actualization.
I am a lifelong student of creativity, economics, science, strategy, philanthropy, consciousness, and indigenous cultures. I believe we are all extraordinary beings created to thrive through deep relationships, nature, spirituality, and creativity. My purpose is to contribute to a more harmonious world by inspiring others to embrace a perspective rooted in love and interconnectedness.
My travels include twelve years of exploring from coast to coast in the United States, a decade living and working full time in East Africa and almost two years soaking in the pure life of Costa Rica. I currently live in San Diego, California with my wife and three of our four children.

PODCAST & COMMUNITY
LISTEN TO THE PODCAST AND JOIN OUR COMMUNITY FOR SPIRITUAL AND PERSONAL DEVELOPMENT
Lifelong Identity Architect and philanthropist, Jared Angaza holds a space for evocative conversations about culture, spirituality, and what it means to live fully alive. Who are we and why are we here? How do we integrate new and ancient wisdom and ensure that our lives reflect our values and beliefs? What does it mean to live authentically?
Over 20 years of activism, international brand development, and ardent studies of human behavior and ancestral wisdom, Jared has realized that the keys to the vitality of humanity and our planet are abundantly present within the ways of the mystics and indigenous cultures that have come before us.
The term Noetic refers to a deep, inner knowing and innate wisdom to see and understand our universal consciousness. Jared and his guests explore concepts such as sacred activism, mindfulness, third way thinking, indigenous wisdom, mysticism, Taoism, and the importance of creativity and wonder in our lives. If we want to change the world, we have to change the way we see it.
Wonder Tribe is a collective of seekers and guides that have come together to hold a sacred space for one another on our journey towards wholeness, consciousness, and flow. We've come together to amplify the wisdom of our ancestors and promote wonder of the cosmos. We create local meet-ups and events that inspire and equip us to further evolve our perspectives, deepen our connection to the universe, and foster wonder, awe, and creativity.

WISDOM MEETS PASSION
My father, Dan Miller, is a best selling author on discovering a purposeful, meaningful career. He’s also one of my closest friends. I’m grateful for all he has taught me through the years, and specifically, the perspective he bestowed upon me.
While I was living with my family in Mombasa, Kenya, on the Indian Ocean coast, he asked me to collaborate on a book with him. Naturally, I was honored and excited. Wisdom Meets Passion is the result.
Today we face a unique dichotomy between the wisdom of the Baby Boomer generation and the passion of Generation Y. According to Wisdom Meets Passion, the question is not which is right, but rather how can the two work together?
Wisdom, meet passion. Passion, wisdom.
By bringing these two voices to the issue, this book takes readers through familiar plights, such as understanding the American Dream, the quest for security, and work that matters—regardless of age. Through candid storytelling, Dan Miller and Jared Angaza uncover various generational approaches to work, money, success, and relationships, proving that it is possible to be both passionate and wise.
