TRAVEL & LIFE EXPERIENCE

My Story

Some of my first memories are of Stonehenge, where I grew up in a nearby village, close to those old rocks towering out of the English countryside, pointing back to the forgotten knowledge of the ancients. Old rocks still speak to me, whenever I visit castles and temples in ruin I imagine how life was for our ancestors and want to know more. Nowadays we have all the information of the world at our fingertips, if we choose to access it. The curiosity is alive in me still, to live, to learn, to ask the fundamental questions; Who are we? How did we get here? What have we learnt along the way?   

Background

So this is me, Adam, and my new project, Innersense, I'd like to tell you a little more about myself and how I got here. I studied Philosophy at University, became interested in Buddhism on my first trip to Thailand, when I was 19. This led to a fascination with ancient eastern metaphysics and many hours spent in the basement of the University library investigating. Through friends I was introduced to Reiki / Sekhem and reached master level by my 23rd birthday. I've practised yoga for 20 years, working on myself to open up my pathologically stiff western body. I've developed my own practice by listening to my body and allowing authentic self expression in the moment.

Journey

I am a globe trotter, a keen photographer, I am a friend to animals and humans alike, I am a lover of loose leaf tea. I am passionate about music, I was once a DJ now I am trying to write songs on the guitar. I moved out to Spain when I was 23 seeking an alternative to the conventional life path standardised education maps out for you. The sunshine and human warmth I found encouraged me to make a life here. I believe it is healthy to lead a balanced life and to develop our humanity as much as our career. We need to make time to follow our hearts and interests, to read, travel, to appreciate the beauty of art and think about the mysteries of the life. We are life; I am that I am.
WE KNOW OURSELVES THROUGH OTHERS

Community

Over the years I have studied with many inspiring teachers, and made many amazing friends on retreats, Retreat based learning is more than just a class room, it is a time for immersion, to develop and deepen your practice. Residential retreat courses are often held in centres surrounded by nature, helping you to reconnect. They are also a time to be in community, to gather together with beautiful like minded people and find it natural to be at ease.
I have over 1000 hours of accredited bodywork training, and many more dedicated to yoga and energy work. As well as a lifetime of independent investigation into biological systems, quantum physics, and the philosophy of being enough to know I know nothing, although I do have some interesting ideas. All in all there have been too many courses to mention them all, but I would like to share with you some of my teachers and favourite schools: 
CHIANG MAI

Sunshine School

Here I have studied both traditional Thai Massage and other more advanced courses such as: Chi Nei Tsang (Chi balancing centred on the belly), Osteopathy meets Thai Massage, Practical Anatomy with Sports Massage and Dynamic Thai Massage. As Chiang Mai is a mecca in the healing world it hosts many leading international teachers who come to share their knowledge.
VISIT
SOUTH OF FRANCE

Lulyani School

Formed by David Lutt after many years studying Thai Massage, Shiatsu, Osteopathy. All amazing healing arts in their own right, each has its strong points. Manual therapy in the west is anatomically precise but lacks the understanding of Eastern Energy Anatomy. By combining them he created Osteo-Thai. This style resonates deeply with me and the principles are very effective!
VISIT
INDIA

School of Shanti

In 2010 I travelled around India, in search of teachers, I took a 200 hour Yoga Teacher Training course with Santi an endearing yogi eager to share his knowledge of the philosophy of yoga.  This led me to a Vipassana centre for a 10 day silent meditation retreat and then on to a town in the Himalaya where the Tibetans live in exile, where I sat in on a teaching from the Dalai Lama.
VISIT
NORTHERN THAILAND

Sunshine Network

I have had the good fortune to attend the two week immersion twice at this school in a Hill Tribe village where students sleep in basic bamboo huts and practice with open views of the hillside and jungle. The teachers follow the life's work of Ashokanada who inspired an entire generation by combining, yoga, meditation, and loving kindness to bring out the essence of Thai Massage.
VISIT
ANCIENT EGYPTIAN HEALING ENERGY

Sekhem

I took my first reiki course 20 years ago whilst I was at University. I felt an instant affinity to the energy healing and kept exploring, leading to a different modality - Sekhem. Once practiced in Egypt, it was rediscovered by Patrick Ziegler when he spent the night in the great pyramid of Giza. I have taken the master lever course with two different teachers and attended a workshop with Patrick himself.
