CURRENTLY EDITING >>> So if you see this… Hi : )

I know not everyone feels that everyday can be “their best day ever”.

But, I’ve learned to truly enjoy my life exactly as it is.

Every single night I go to bed, I know that I was focused on my life’s purpose.

Every single day I wake up, I’m excited about the potential.


I’m so glad to have crossed paths with you, I’m sure it’s no accident.

I think it’s a true blessing, even just to be alive, at the best time in human history.

Right, Now. Right this very moment...

But, if we are going to work together, or even just to live on the same rock. You should know some basic truths about me... It may be hard to believe but I’m still not perfect, I haven’t always been this happy, and sometimes I still find ways to make a mess & screw things up.

However, I remain in a steady & humble pursuit of up-leveling myself & doing my part to help all people to live in harmony with each other on this beautiful planet. I suppose some would say that it’s an impossible task, a long shot, or not my job… and they’re right!

But living that way definitely makes for a life worth living.

If your with me on this, please share a moment of presence & appreciation to acknowledge someone & to celebrate something minuscule (or amazing) they just did... Because feeling good is a game of momentum, and together we all rise.

Oh, and hey, I know you’ve been through a lot to get here too. I bet you’ve been rocking it though! And if not, well hey, you’re still alive & you have plenty of opportunity to do great things, maybe we can even work together : )


I’m very curious Though:

Do You feel connected to your lifes purpose? And If not, would you like to?

At the very end of this page, I’ll give you 3 easy ways to stay in contact with me. I'll even share one of my most valuable self reflection exercises. If your interested, I’ll send you one question a day for the next two weeks. Why? To help you take a serious look at whats most important to you... I can assure you, NOTHING is worse than spending the next day, the next year, the next 10 years, or maybe, the rest of your entire life living out of alignment with your inner calling.

I call it “The 14Q’s”... I answered these questions in 2008 and have been living my dreams ever since.

No, my life hasn’t been flawless, but I’ve been writing my own story, and while nothing is worse than being out of alignment, NOTHING is better than being the author or your own experience.


Sometimes, to know where you’re headed takes a good look at where you’ve come from. I’ll tell you just a smidge about past Drew, I’ll share the bullet points (and the direct links) to what I do professionally now and I’ll even include “my biggest vision” for the brightest future.

PERSONAL HISTORY :// I’m JUST SOME small town kid - from Heaven...

Well, Manchester actually... But it’s in Eastern Iowa, the place where dreams come true.


If you don’t know about Eastern Iowa, it’s home to “The Field of Dreams” Grab a popcorn and watch the film someday. Hint, it’s about much more than a game of Baseball. It’s about following your dreams, even when all the cards are stacked against you. It’s having the courage to follow your inner calling.

Learning to follow my heart was the single most importanT thing I would ever do.


IMG_9919.jpg

Because my parents had separated, I had the blessing to go back and forth between a farm and city lifestyle. I was able to experience both urban and rural values . I got to play in both the neighborhood sandbox and the wide open corn corn fields. I got to experience the structure of summer camps and the limitless possibilities that come from total boredom. Through it all, I learned to work hard and play freely. To take responsibility for my actions and to clean up pretty darn well after myself.


I was a very creative and outgoing young man who had found his way from a tree house overlooking his parents garden to a dorm room overlooking a historic college campus at Iowa State University. I would meet countless new friends, teachers, and locals who helped shape my experience, each one leaving their own special and meaningful mark. I passionately worked my way through one of the best Landscape Architecture programs in the country. It shaped me in ways I could never fully describe but the most important point I want to summarize is this. I began to experience the world around me through a new lens…

Studying the land and the history of the state I grew up in, revealed to me that Iowa was the most altered landscape in the entire world...


On an evolutionary timeline, We had turned the prairies into farmlands in the blink of an eye. By 2007, the small family farms that had already completely wiped out and replaced the pre-existing native cultures / ecosystems, were even more rapidly disappearing themselves. These family farms and small town communities that my parents had grown up in were headed to their own extinction. As if seeing the world through just that new lens wasn’t enough, I can’t even rationally comment on the realities of our global human history. What we have done to the planet through the industrial revolution, and world wars alone has been both extremely inspiring and downright frightening.

What world would we have, if any, at the end of my lifetime?

Oh, and buckle up, because, onward and upward, we were already headed into “The information age”.

Okay, so…. with all this new perspective, I ran into a bit of a battle with reality. In short, I had a heavy heart for how much of an impact the human species has had on the planet, and knowing how much better we could do... I became a bit obsessed with doing whatever I could to “SAVE THE WORLD”... Sometimes, I felt like “The Lorax” and thought everyone should be listening to me, or that I would just need to work harder to be the next Captain Planet...

I did everything I could manage to do as just one man. I poured myself into “making a difference”. I usually did it at the cost of my own financial needs, my family, my relationships, my friendships… I did it because I believe that what we do matters, that what we do makes a difference in the world. I was doing the best I could, which wasn’t always understood, which wasn’t always perfect, which wasn’t always the right thing to be doing. But, I followed my heart.


And so, that brings us to my businesses... Somewhere in about 2005, midway through my college studies, I gave myself a company name and a title... "D2MGROUP". D2M is Drew Matthew Maifeld, ( D and two M's ) + GROUP… All the interesting projects and people I have the pleasure to work with. I was a "solutions architect" because I enjoy helping people. I love working collaboratively to solve real world problems, obvious shortcomings, or anything that I can meaningfully contribute myself to. I felt this would best represent my diverse interests & talents in both people, the planet & a rapidly growing digitally technical world.

SIDE NOTE: I adopted this title before I knew what the term was. So, just to be clear, I'm in no formal way associated with an information technology background. If you’re looking for help with that, I’m sorry. However, I could introduce you to some good folks, or you could keep googling...

Anyway, during those early years, I was already thinking about and working on relationships, and projects outside my normal field of study. I had always been the kind of kid who loved to explore & wasn't afraid to question the status quo and ask big questions that would lead to uncommon information.

It never was, & never will be, all about me. Hence the "GROUP".

I know it takes so many people to make the world go around… So I think of D2MGROUP as my part in the crazy pursuits that I chase and the work I do collectively to chip in and to raise the bar of the common human experience.

After all, shouldn’t work be fun too? How much better would everyones life be in they absolutely and unquestionably loved what they did for work?


Here’s a small but very real list of specific things or ideas that I worked on passionately in hopes that my impact would help make a positive mark on the world:

I worked for “RDG Planning & Design Landscape Architecture Studio”
( & Including several projects with “The Dahlquist Public Art Studio” )
I worked to help grow non profits like “Peak4Poverty” & “UrbanAmbassadors”
Dreamed up technology ideas like "theBRAVOSCOPE”
Created a community at the “Downtown Community Garden”
Helped design, build & open a small clothing resale boutique “FrancyPants”
Dreamed up a big community development idea “Friends On The MAR.GIN”
Worked for a new farm to table restaurant
“Table 128”
Led the “Earth Heroes” summer program at “Des Moines Botanical Garden”
Contracted on special projects at “Genus Landscape Architecture”
Gave 10 years of heart & soul to leading group yoga at the “Wellmark YMCA”

And honestly, this is just a quick review of the ones easy enough to put web links to. I certainly had a lot of fun, and worked through many challenges.


So here’s how I want to wrap up all this personal history...


Even with all this fun and chasing my purpose, I do still work. A lot actually.

D2MGROUP is real and I primarily split my time between dmYOGA & Landmatters. I do these two things for myself and for others. Because I want to help people live in harmony with each other and on the planet.

My job, is to lead with love & compassion for all & in all situations…

My job is to help connect and bring people together on the planet. It’s how I show up to whatever I do. Whether I’m working for me or for someone else.

I guess I'm simply just an extremely thoughtful fellow in who is always eager to "help people help each other" & to model how we can all work together to make the best, most informed & meaningful decisions for this and for all future generations.

I relentlessly stand for my ideals the very best I can and I’d love to help you however it makes most sense. I think how I’ve helped the most, was simply with my presence...”


LASTLY,

If I’ve learned anything in the past 15 years...


I think the most important person anyone can ever really save is themselves. I’m obviously still working on it so I’ll spare you that story, but, it’s a daily task... and I’m having a blast.

Hi, I'm Drew Maifeld, the founder and Director of dmYOGA, a yoga collaborative that helps people deeply connect to themselves and their higher purpose. 

Most people interact with us by coming to group classes or through one on one conversations. We currently host classes on Monday nights and on Saturday mornings or you can join us for any of the special events we host. You can also work one on one with myself or one of our like minded instructors who you feel would be a good fit for you.

Working a regular yoga practice into your daily or even weekly routine is your chance to breakthrough the hustle and bustle of life and de-stress your mind and body.

Simply put, you won't regret it. Come visit us sooner rather then later and experience the life changing benefits of a dedicated yoga practice and connecting with a conscious community of truly incredible people.

Always gratefully,

Special event photography


I help CAPTURe subtle details of INCREDIBLE moments... 

Moments that help You to remember & tell stories of the day.

Moments that would otherwise simply fade away...


Below is an example of an “event slideshow” composed of many candid photos all captured and posted into a slideshow format to give participants a vivid memory of the event. The “beautiful shots” are then used for print, or simply for marketing / online publishing.

 

The vast majority of photos I take for myself,

never make it off my hard drive…

to find a few photos on Facebook.
