About the Founder

“My name is Demetrius Glover and I am the founder of Sōlhaus. I am a speaker, I travel to different schools speaking about finding your purpose, but this wasn’t always the case. At 26, I found myself lying in a hospital bed because my body was breaking down from prescription drug abuse, fatigue, and stress. This is my story.

Growing up, I was the awkward kid. As early as 7 years old, I noticed my body would tense up around both people I knew and strangers. I always carried a weird, agitated feeling when speaking one-on-one with people (let alone in crowds) and would constantly worry: “Can they see my red face, feel my sweaty hands, and see my body shaking?”

The feeling of unease only continued to grow through high school. My social anxiety eventually led to depression and suicidal thoughts. And once I got to college, I was prescribed Adderall for ADHD and depression and Xanax for anxiety and OCD.

As my tolerance to these drugs increased, I began to abuse them. Not long after, the prescription drugs had me dependent both physically and mentally. This led me to that hospital bed.

That experienced became a wake-up call. I thought this isn’t going to be my life. I traded the pills for prayer, guided meditation, gratitude, and yoga. Through these natural methods, I found a new freedom and empowerment and today I’m grateful for a new life.

It’s a gift and honor to better myself daily and now it’s my mission to bring the same enlightenment to others through the Sōlhaus. community.

Why We Do This

Growing up, I always felt an unease in social situations.
I always felt like I was the awkward child.

From as early as 7 years old, my body would tense up around both people I knew and strangers. This same unease continued through high school and into my college years. I always carried a weird, agitated feeling when speaking one-on-one with people (let alone in crowds) and would constantly worry:

“Can they see my red face, feel my sweaty hands, and see my body shaking?”

My social anxiety eventually led to depression and suicidal thoughts. Once I got to college, I was prescribed Adderall for ADHD and depression and Xanax for anxiety and OCD.

As my tolerance to these drugs increased, I began to abuse them, which landed me in the hospital at 26 years old. I had always tried meditation and yoga, but the prescription drugs had me dependent both physically and mentally.

After the hospital visit, though extremely challenging, I traded the pills for prayer, guided meditation, gratitude, and yoga. These natural methods have catapulted me into a new freedom and empowerment and today I’m grateful for a new life.

It’s a gift and honor to not only better myself daily, but to bring the same enlightenment to others.

SōlHaus was born out of the need for a world of wellness through community.
