Teaching, Transforming, Giving

My passion is to transform people's lives by highest spiritual teachings (12 books).

To catalyze radical change by eliciting ecstatic-mystical-tantric-awakening states.

And to support local and worldwide charities. The secret to living is giving.

Here is my biography with photos. (300 more photos are in my Facebook).

From a young age, I was having psychic and clairvoyant experiences which no-one could explain to me. I lost my mother when I was 5 years old, and my father was a rational, pragmatic atheist, so I learned to keep my unusual and profound experiences to myself.

At 11 years old, I found a pamphlet for Transcendental Meditation. I was strongly drawn to this and harassed my father until he finally relented and paid for a teacher. She was a wonderful elderly lady who showed me the principles and gave me my first mantra. I practiced TM every morning and evening. Soon I was spontaneously grieving. I cried for two weeks, greatly worrying my father. Despite his requests, I would not quit meditating. The grieving abated and I started having incredible psychic and spiritual experiences. One morning I was sitting with my eyes closed when a silver dot appeared in the distance; then it rushed toward me and exploded into my forehead (third eye chakra). I did not understand what was happening. Beings of Light would often surround me; I had no terms of reference so I just called them 'the good guys'. I began experiencing profoundly deep peaceful states. However, with nobody to share all these experiences, I developed into a quieter, introspective child.  

When I was 15 years old, I decided that 
my mission in life was to find all the secrets and keys for a fulfilling, successful and awesome life, and to understand this mystery of Existence, then share all that sacred knowledge with the world in order to improve the quality of everyone’s life.

Here is a brief synopsis of my life: I was born in South Africa, a country with eleven passionate tribes, an exquisite natural environment, awesome wildlife and delicious food. School bored me to tears (the only subject I enjoyed was English, especially writing). At 18 years old, I was drafted into military service (compulsory in S.A.); I spent two years in the Marine Corps. It was a great place to acquire the valuable skill of discipline. After that, I qualified as a Commercial Diver and chose to work on the west coast of South Africa, diving for diamonds in the cold Atlantic Ocean. Yes, that’s a thing! I loved being underwater; it felt completely natural to me. When an unusual weather pattern was predicted to shut down offshore diving for 6 months, I enrolled in the University of South Africa. Seven years later I had two degrees, majoring in Psychology and Communication. I absolutely loved university because I could choose my subjects. I spent a few years in the business world (specializing first in Sales and Operations, then in Human Resources and Training and Development). I was happily married for a few years too! Eventually I relocated to the United Kingdom (England) and established my own Learning and Development Consultancy and also a psychotherapy practice. I was always learning: post-graduate courses and hundreds of books covering many topics. One day I realized that what I had was not enough. I made some very hard decisions. At 39 years old, I walked away from everything. For the next ten years I travelled the world and immersed myself in the absolute highest learning possible. I worked with sangomas in Africa, learned from shamans in Peru and Mexico, spent time with lamas in Tibet and the Kingdom Of Bhutan, and was guided at all times by a radical cosmic being called Jay (see the cover of my book Reflections). I also spent years immersed in exhilarating Tantra with a fabulous French teacher. I opened a spiritual tourism business, meeting with worldwide trippers seeking to heal with Peruvian shamans. I searched in every nook and crevice until I found the keys to success, fulfilment, peace and bliss. Over years, I experienced diverse potent healing technologies, dived deep into consciousness-shifting, surfed incredible sacred multi-dimensions, until I found what I ultimately sought: Who We Really Are, the True Nature of Life, and How To Live in Deep Fulfilment, Love and Peace! Along the way, I wrote 12 bestselling books: 10 novels infused with profound spiritual teachings and 2 awesome life guides. That's the life I lived!!

I am now 54 and settled in Los Angeles. My wife is the most loving, wonderful woman I have ever met. She is the final piece of my life-fulfilment puzzle. I am immersed in love, music, affection, and deep soul connection. We enjoy an ecstatic Tantric relationship. I have achieved all my dreams and I am deeply grateful for the awesome life I live every day! Om Shanti.

I am overflowing with Divine Love, Peace and Bliss.
