What is UHP?

UNIVERSAL HANDPRINT is a way of being and living life to your fullest potential.


UHP's retreats will help you to get away from your daily grind and help you to rejuvenate -- all while finding clarity about your life and it's purpose in the process. By allowing yourself to get away from routine and the repetitive grind of life, you will focus and see things as they are.  Then you can let go of what is not serving you.


This is the quality of life we all deserve.


Through Wade's many accomplishments, he realized that there is a common thread to changing your life and obtaining your goals/visions whatever they may be. Like your handprint, UHP is a unique imprint that is customized for you.  It is there to help kick start you on your journey and give you the tools needed to follow through once back in the routine of life. All this deep insight happens all while having the time of your life with great people in amazing locations around the globe.


There are 5 basic principles, like fingers on your hand, that can be broken down into subgroups to give you your unique "Handprint".


UHP can help you achieve any desires within your heart whether that is simply stillness of the mind to abundance in the bank and anywhere in between all while maintaining balance which is where true health and happiness lives.

These 5 principles are the root of achieving anything in life that you desire. They will vary from person to person just as your "Handprint" is different from every other person's Handprint.


As said by many, Thoughts become feelings and your feelings become your life. We have to be specific while developing your Handprint. Then, once you have the tools, it comes down to being consistent and allowing yourself to re-evaluate over time and become even more clear about your chosen path. This is the process. And if you are pursuing this ultimate dream of yours from your most authentic and true self. Your soul will ultimately be nourished too. This is the Universal Handprint for life~
