Happiness is the Truth

Gerry Powell is the Founder of Rythmia. A successful conscious entrepreneur and author building businesses that provide healing to humanity and nature.


I’m Not a Thought Leader

I’m a regular guy, that had an extraordinary experience, and now I’ve become a cheerleader for a plant. A plant that transformed me from a broken multi-millionaire suicidal alcoholic and drug addict with a lifetime of suffering to a happy, free, and purpose-driven individual who can do anything but is addicted to nothing. My life’s mission is to show others there can be a shortcut to happiness.

The Science of Allowing Abundance Through Honesty

When millions are struggling to pay bills and student loans, and millions more are displaced from jobs, “truthenomics” offers a dynamic blueprint to change the way we look at, pursue, and accumulate true wealth and authentic happiness.

For many years, Gerard Powell was living the “American Dream”—he was a multi-millionaire who had it all. Deep down, he knew something was missing. The more he achieved, the more he fell into depression.

Through a personal crisis, struggling with drugs, alcoholism and thoughts of suicide, he began a journey of self-transformation and healing which culminated in the creation of the Rythmia Life Advancement Center which has helped transform the lives of nearly 10,000 people.
