Hi. I'm Nat Couropmitree.
That's pronounced Ca-rope-my-three, with accents on the 2nd and 4th syllables.
The name was given to my dad's family by the Abbot of a Thai Buddhist Temple. It's made up of two Sanskrit words: 'Courop' which means Respect; and, 'Mitree' which means Unity or Loving Kindness.
What lights me up
What lights me up?
Travel. Adventure. Beauty. Comfort. Great Service. Quality. Great Food. Connection and Being Playful.
I love to take pictures of the beauty that is our world. All of the photos on this site are taken during my travel adventures. I often think that the reason I'm so amazed by the beauty of a sunset or some other landscape is that I'm seeing a reflection of my own Divine magnificence.
I love to connect with people and am inspired by their life stories. I am inspired by different cultures and how they are able to smile and enjoy life despite having less material niceties.
I'm enjoying the process of reconditioning my body and appreciate the increased ease and joy in movement. I'm looking forward to running, climbing, jumping, crawling and swinging like I did when I was a kid.
As much as I love to travel and moving around, I also love quiet days - days when I don't need to leave the house. I'll read, nap, watch movies or simply sit and enjoy the silence.
And when I'm not traveling or resting, I'm dancing. I did ballroom dancing for many years. One of my favorite dances is the waltz because of it's flowing, graceful movement. I feel so free and expansive when I'm dancing it. The cha-cha is another favorite because of it's energy and playfulness. More recently, my wife and I have been learning to dance the Argentine Tango. (See a video of me below.)
What I Believe
You are Magnificent. We all are.
None of us are broken. None of us are problems that need to be fixed.
Your value and worthiness are unconditional. You have value simply by existing.
There is more to life than working hard and striving to be better.
Your purpose and greatest contribution to the world is to live magnificently, to express who-you-are freely and unconditionally.
What I Do
I support conscious coaches, entrepreneurs, artists and consultants - to:
- free themselves from what weighs them down,
- stand up for their uniqueness, and,
- learn a new way of being that's aligned with their Soul's Love and allows for everyday freedom, joy and fulfillment.
This is what I call living magnificently.
My favorite way to do this is by being a model of what I know is possible, by sharing what I learn (or have learned) along the way, and by teaching energetic tools that support you to navigate your life adventures with confidence, grace and joy.

My Favorite QUOTES
Unique experiences I've had
It's a common tradition in Thailand for boys to ordain as monks. It's more rare in the States. I made the decision to do it when I was 17 years old at the Thai Buddhist Temple in the Chicagoland area. I lived at the Temple, participated in the rituals and learned about Buddhism during the day. It was a great experience of letting go and living simply.
I was asked to perform the Argentine tango with my classmate, Laurie. Her friend who played in the Orchestra thought it would be a fun idea. I had only been taking tango lessons for about 6 months and we had 2 months to prepare. Needless to say, I was a bit apprehensive. But it was such a unique opportunity that I couldn't pass it up.
In Massachusetts, you can apply to officiate a wedding for a designated day and location. This was the 3rd wedding (and most unique one) I had the honor to officiate.
What's your highest excitement? Take a moment to feel into the energy of the word 'magnificence'. What images bubble up? How does the energy feel in your body? Bask here for several moments. Now, from this energetic space, ask yourself, "What are you inspired to experience?"
