Payton's style of teaching was exactly what I needed at the beginning of last year (2014), and set the tone for my entire year. He showed me a whole new world of knowledge through videos and one-on-one talks that helped me finally begin to make sense of existence and how everything came to be, comes to be, and is coming to be all at once; as well as gave me tools to work with other people and understand them MUCH better day-to-day. He has an assertive teaching style which does not let you lie to yourself or be lazy about what you are doing in life on any scale, and to back himself up, the information he's imparting on alchemy and Hermetic-style philosophies constantly proves to one that he/she cannot let oneself do those things. He helps you improve your life in all aspects starting with your OWN behavior, and makes you realize that all your problems are and have always been sprouted from and supported by your own consciousness.
His physical yoga and health teachings, as well, have changed my life as I've always struggled with weight, healthiness, and eating habits. It helped me fully break away from the generally ineffective and dangerous ideas of the West on working out, eating, and healthcare, and I'll never go back. I know things now that I've never known about my chakras, like how to balance them and wake them up, which along with the rest of the yoga has made me physically and spiritually feel better than I ever have (and I've tried most Western styles of exercise).
Because of Payton I now have mental, spiritual, and physical discipline in life that I never thought possible or necessary; I have a wealth of knowledge that I never knew existed, but more importantly I have more ideas about what knowledge I DON'T have, and can truly love myself and God for it.
