TRAVEL & LIFE EXPERIENCE

My Story

Some of my first memories are of Stonehenge, I grew up in the nearest village to those old rocks towering out of the English countryside pointing back to the forgotten knowledge of the ancients. Somehow wherever I go old rocks conjure up in me images of how life once was and get me imagining how our ancestors lived. I had the good fortune to be born in an age where we have all the information of the world at our fingertips, if we choose to access it, and the world is nowadays more accessible than ever. So when curiosity and capacity meet anything is possible!

Background

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

Journey

I am a globe trotter and a keen photographer, most of the photos on this site are mine, I am a friend to wildlife and humans alike, I am a lover of loose leaf tea, I am passionate about music, having once been a DJ now I am trying to write some 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 sunlight and human warmth I found have kept me here. My life choices have always reflected my desire for a balanced life, making time to follow my heart and my interests, to read, travel and wonder about the mysteries of the life and the Universe. 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, but 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. I would like to share with you some of my teachers and favourite schools, who know maybe one day you'll travel there and study as well. 
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, combining them he created Osteo-Thai. This style resonates deeply with me, 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

20 years ago I got my reiki level 1 attunement, my dad and I took the course together. I felt an affinity to energy healing and kept exploring, which led me to Sekhem, once practiced in Egypt it was rediscovered by Patrick Ziegler when he spent the night in the great pyramid, I have taken the master lever course with two different teachers and attended a workshop with Patrick himself.
