Words and ideas can change the world, and that’s why I write for a living. My quest is to dive into the fathomless esoteric wellsprings of joy, inspiration and self-knowledge, through a meditative, playful and awakened life, and share the treasures I find there with others who can also see a world free from insanity, egotism, greed and fear. It begins with cultivating a natural state of mind—the rest flows from there. I live a simple life in Knysna, South Africa, otherwise known as paradise. I write, play, walk in the forest and teach meditation, mindfulness and Tai Chi—mostly without saying too much.
