I was born in 1954 to Scottish parents in the county of Devon, SW England. On completing my education in Edinburgh in 1972 I made my first visit to India. My main intention was to visit Kalimpong, a hill station on the borders of Sikkim and Bhutan where my grandfather had lived for 53 years. On that journey I visited Sikkim for the first time.
Some months later I returned to Kalimpong to work for six months in the world famous children’s home, now known as Dr Graham’s Homes, that my grandfather had founded in 1900. I rounded off this sojourn with a visit to Bhutan. It was then still a closed land and no tourists were allowed to enter. This visit allowed me to forge my own links with this remarkable country whose history in the 20th century had been so bound up with that of my family.
Returning to London, which became my main base for the next 23 years, it took me a few years to find my career path. Actually it found me when at the age of 29 my life was turned unexpectedly and shockingly upside down by the arrival in my life of a non-physical spiritual teacher called White Bull. Since then my life’s task has been to be his ‘instrument’. It is a task that has brought me in touch with many remarkable people, visits to countries that I never expected to go to, and has most importantly been the peg upon which has hung my own personal spiritual development.
For some years I have combined my role as White Bull’s instrument with workshops and lectures. Our first book “ God Is Never Late (But Never Early Either) was published in eight languages. Our latest book, “There Is Nothing Miraculous About A Miracle “ was published in Dutch in 2015. Other foreign editions are in the pipeline.
In 2015 I have formalized my new-found role as a tour organizer and guide with Tashiding Travel. Already I have organized six trips to Egypt and two to Bhutan. These give me enormous pleasure and feelings of wonderment that Life has brought me into touch with such perfect colleagues in the countries we visit to enable the journeys to happen.
