What is your favourite country?
Visited 126 so far, all amazing in their own way, that’s like asking your favourite star in the cosmos, they all have magic. Cambodia and Austria both have magic, Botswana has a stunning Silence, and Ethiopia has its epic vistas, so many gifts everywhere.
What is your Heaven travel story?
The ecstasy of waking up every morning and experiencing all the surprises the “NOW” and the “HERE” throw our way, utterly unexpected , always illuminating , from tragedy and illness to serenity and awe, this brief life is overwhelmingly breath taking each moment.
What is your Hell travel story?
To be on a long haul flight stuck beside someone who talks all the time moaning about how awful everything is.

Perpetually amazed and inspired….. happening so far

Friend, I think ones best friend should be oneself . I dedicated my Autobiography to Sharon Wilkinson who is one of those rare joys in life, always leave them elated and enriched , renewed and healed.
Who is your hero and why?
Dr Joe Barnes who created ICROSS with me, now almost 101 years old, continues to be passionate, selfless, compassionate and graceful. Served the poor around the World most of his life. When I grow up I would like to be like him.
If you could make one law what would it be?
You can’t legislate to love or be compassionate, but to ban weapons, any kind of weapon and forbid judging others, those who did would be sentenced to go and live with each other.
Tell us a little about your Eye books
You can find information about all of my books on my website and my youtube channel.
ALL WILL BE WELL, CHANGING THE WORLD and next, The Tribe of One . Hopefully my first book and SURPRISED BY JOY will be re released through eye-books as well
I lecture around the World , in part on International Health but also on spirituality and inspirational ideas that awaken us. I try to encourage self wonder and inner stillness. A path of contemplation in action.
Are you still writing and if so, have you published, or are you looking to publish, since your Eye book?
Two books are on the launching pad with eye books, THE TRIBE OF ONE and PRIMAL ACCORD.
Are you still involved with the subject of your book and could you summarise what’s happened since then?
The most detailed answer to that is to look at what we are doing in Africa and what our work focusus on in areas of extreme poverty. Please click here to see.
After 36 years, its just beginning…
