This is My Story
Struggling to find your real purpose in life?
I’ve been there and know your pain
I spent 22 years of my life running from myself, I quickly realised fresh new distractions kept me thinking about my childhood traumas, so I kept running finding those fresh new places in the world to explore, instead of leading too peace of mind and clarity, this lead to substance abuse, adrenaline addiction, anger issues, manic depression, a divorce and suicidal thoughts.
For years I was stuck in this way of thinking, until
I meet the most unbelievably and humble Buddhist monk, Thich Nhat Hanh
This meeting with a true living saint came at exactly the right moment for me. And Thich Nhat Hanh allowed me to see there was a path to follow. I eagerly set forth on an 8 year mission to learn these ancient meditation and mindfulness techniques, visiting and studying in monasteries and ashrams across India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia, Loas and finally where I ordained as a Buddhist monk in the beautiful country of Thailand.
Every lesson I learnt from being a monk easily transferred through to my real life.
I now felt happier than I had for many many years, but there was still much work to do. Upon returning to the United Kingdom I found the normal 21st century career to be less than satisfactory, all I knew, I wanted to serve and help others but didn’t really know how to go about sharing this knowledge.
Fun fact: people assume you’ve been to jail when it reads Monk in Thailand on your CV, I was rejected many times even before I had the chance to explain.
Over the next few years I practiced diligently and gained greater and greater insights into my mind. I gave up on the idea of the 21st century career and went on a journey across Europe, with the soul intention of finding secluded locations to meditate freely to my hearts content.
My calling as a life purpose coach and creator of original moral stories came by accident while around a large campfire on a beach in Portugal. When asked to contribute to the circle with a song, poem or magic trick, I created The Four Trees, a story of living contently, many questions we asked and my very first group coaching session and moral story was born.

Charity Promoting Kindness
With a heartwarming personal story of Kindness shown towards myself and Marley Moo (my faithful sidekick) when we were suddenly found homeless, has given me the determination and personal dream to set up an internationally recognised charity promoting Kindness to those that need it the most.
Our Blog follows the personal story as to why we are now walking a distance of 3500km through Towns and Cities promoting kindness to all those that need it. This can be as simple as a hug a smile or buying food and clothing for the homeless or families in need. Animals have a special place in my heart and they won’t be forgotten as we feed stray cats and dogs along the journey.
With Your Help
As we steadily grow we aim to extend a hand of friendship out towards the communities local to You. With Your help, guidance and leadership we wish to initiate Kindness Walks around the world, helping the homeless and less fortunate than ourselves in anyway we can.
I strongly believe 4enlightenment should live by the moral principles it shares and writes about. Kindness and Compassion have become our top priority.
