I am 49 years old with 30 years practical spiritual knowledge and experience combined with five years full-time reading Religious Studies at university.
Although I came from a poor family and was subjected to serious child abuse, I have turned my life around with episodes of both conscious and spontaneous spiritual healing.
I was born in New Zealand and moved to live in Germany in 2008. My soul brought me to the middle of the Harz Mountains where I bought a house in the picturesque Selke Valley, adjacent to the Selke river. Apart from reading, writing and looking after my family, I keep busy renovating our house and developing the land for self-sufficiency.
In my first book, 'The Purpose of Pain', I have drawn some original and sensible conclusions to the dilemma of suffering. This is not a re-write of traditional themes but an original look at suffering in a context apart from punishment.
In my second book 'The Self-Healing Soul', I use the concept of the 'spiritual instincts' that I introduced in 'The Purpose of Pain' and expand ít to show how there are natural healing functions in the make-up of or unconscious that can lead to a spiritual and personal transformation.
