On this southern Caribbean adventure I find myself in Guadeloupe, France camping on the beaches with the local Rastafarian’s, sailors, ex patriots, and thugs, exploring active sulfuric volcanoes, cliff jumping, fishing, swimming in the turquoise waters and hitching around talking with people about living life to the fullest with grace, love, and compassion.
Willow Jon. World Traveler. Dancer. Gonzo Journalist. Spiritual Explorer.
My name is Willow Jon Collamer and I'm on a journey of fearless self discovery. I play music, travel the world, make films, and have bad ass adventures. It is my desire to challenge the Status Quo and inspire courage in the hearts and minds of the people. Courage to discover our true self. A self that grows and evolves with each new experience.
I challenge you all to get up, reach inside yourself, dig around and find that spark of love, that part of yourself that yearns to be free, that begs to be noticed, that screams to feel something, anything.... and begin to be silent and listen.
I am Willow Jon Collamer and this is Willow Jon Slept Here
Willow Jon loves a challenge and an adventure so when Discovery channel offered him a role on a new survival show called, “Tethered” let’s just say he jumped at the opportunity. This time Willow Jon finds himself pushed beyond his breaking point as he is physically tethered to hard headed Navy vet Keith Barton with a six foot chain to see if they can survive a 10 day 50 mile trek through Panama’s deadly jungles, shark infested waters, and relentless heat, with only a machete, a flint, and a pot. In this survival show splitting up is not an option.
My sister introduced me to Justin about five years ago when we both helped to fold boxes for his amazing product. Years later and Justin is one of the fastest growing food and beverage companies in the world. If you haven’t tried his butters yet, it’s high time you do because they are the best.
This is video I directed with Anthony Reyes as Director of Photography for 2012 Wild Mind Film Camp. I received a week long scholarship to attend this awesome, hands on, highly inspirational Documentary film camp held in the beautifully diverse and naturally abundant Methow valley of Twisp, Washington. I gained experience and friendship which continues to this day from some of the most celebrated writers, directors, and cinematographers in the film industry. Wild Mind Film Camp Rocks!
Nate Wright and I drove from Los Angeles to New York City, through lightening storms, sleeping in truck stops, eating BBQ, playing music with all kinds of people, and talking to the locals about traveling and happiness. This is a preview of our adventure.
Paul Armstrong and I met on one of my motorcycle trips up the 101 when I stopped in at, “The Frog and Peace” pub in San Louis Obispo for a bit of the old dancing and Malarky. It was then I was invited to come to Morro Bay and live aboard his 40 ft sailboat, “The Brier Island.” For six months I lived among the fisherman, the honking sea lions, salted sea creatures, and birds of prey. One evening we paddled over the black water to The Lady Washington Tall Ship most well known for playing the HMS Interceptor in the “Pirates of the Caribbean,” and I rocked and I rolled my way up the coast to San Francisco.
April Joga and I met back in 2011 when I was playing a cowboy in a short film. She was as surprised as I was when I hoped on her free spirited horse Manzanita and took off across the fields with wild abandon. I have since been introduced to more horses and the people who care for them and I’m learning how powerful, intuitive and spiritual horses really are. We humans are blessed to have these supreme creatures as our friends.
Henry and I met as participants on Discovery Channel’s survival show, “Tethered” and became friends soon after. We both share a deep love for animals, nature, adventure, and family. While visiting Chico, California in 2014 Henry invited me to go mushroom hunting and this is the video. Enjoy!
For centuries Horses have been a symbol of Freedom, Passion, Power, and Movement. They carry us through life on their backs and in their hearts, encouraging us to become our true selves and to grow with courage, love, and self-awareness. In this section of videos called, “Horse Power” I speak with Chiropractor, Horse enthusiast and my good friend, Dina Rabo about Horses and the pursuit of health and happiness.
