Biography

At thirty-three, Jon Chandonnet thought it meant setting goals and working long hours and hard days to make things happen. Living by that credo he accomplished a lot. He earned his Masters from MIT, ran several marathons, scaled a number of 14,000 foot peaks, and lead teams to develop software to launch start-ups and build enterprise applications. He even met his soul mate, fell in love, and was married. Jon was well on his way—or so he thought—but he was a ticking time bomb.

Diagnosed with multiple sclerosis in his late twenties, Jon pushed himself to extremes in hopes it would allow him to get on the path of the life he was meant to live. But he was living in denial—out of balance with the ways that would allow him to maintain his health and well-being. The MS caught up to him in a fierce way. After two years of deterioration, Jon could barely take care of himself. His wife and family convinced him that he could no longer ignore the reality of his condition. He knew he had to turn things around, but traditional medications and treatments did little to stem the disease’s momentum.

Frustrated with the direction of his health, Jon decided to try something different. Through dogged determination and conscious living, he has proven that life is what you make of it. Putting into practice his learnings about diet, exercise, spiritual practices and conscious living, Jon has found a way not only to health and well-being, but to a life of vibrancy—living with a disease trying to stop him in his tracks.

Jon’s hope is that through his story, others can see how a vibrant life, no matter what you face, really is possible through conscious, daily practices. No matter what happens, there is a way to create the life of your dreams. Jon shares his ongoing journey of a vibrant life through his blog, speeches across the nation, and through his book, Shadow Summit, (November 2013).
