The Humble Bear

"I don't want followers or students, I want to make spiritual gangsters out of every single one of you."

~ Matt



Matt ‘The Humble Bear’ Hillier is a certified life & spiritual coach, soul alignment mentor as well as being an Angelic Reiki, Theta Healing practitioner and cacao ceremony facilitator. He uses his experience with mental health, meditation and mindfulness to help you regain a sense of balance in your life. Most of us have filled our lives with an incredible amount of noise and commotion, leaving our bodies and minds in a state of constant survival mode with fight or flight chemicals and hormones flowing through us, throwing us off kilter and out of alignment. Using a variety of tools and techniques Matt looks to reset this to the natural resting mode innate to our being, create space in our thought life in order to bear witness to our subconscious patterns and beliefs and to restructure these in a positive and constructive manner.


Matt’s spiritual journey really started in August 2018 when he hit rock bottom, narrowly survived a suicide attempt. This was the culmination of years of deteriorating mental health and a battle with drug and alcohol addiction. After voluntarily attending a rehabilitation centre for 2 months and rigorously applying the 12 step program to his physical, mental and spiritual life. He surrendered himself and opened his life to the divine for guidance and salvation.


Oh boy did they answer! Matt has been on a super charged journey of self discovery and transformation. 


In 2020 he slowed his life right down and practised daily presence for a whole year, at the end of which his coaching business, chose to be birthed into the world through him, he commenced his work with Cacao to help bring this beautiful medicine to the hearts of the community and the world.


Matt now works with Cacao on an intimate basis (along with Yoga, Breathwork, Mediation and Cold Water Therapy) to bring love and guidance to his life and the lives of those he touches. Connects with his guides and beings of many dimensions for direction and spreads the teachings and wisdom that is bestowed on him to the many souls that are drawn by his light. He is also the founder, creator and host of the Human Optimisation Retreats that bring luxury to the spiritual retreat domain and help people to align with their highest purpose and intent.


Matt has a beautiful grounded, calm and centred energy which enables feelings of safety to open your more vulnerable facets to be healed.


His mission is to reintroduce peoples ‘Human’ to their ‘Being’ and to help them become everything they were always meant to be!
