In ‘Being Male : seeking peace’ I have explored the idea of what might fulfil a man in todays world. To question just what is important to you, as you steer your direction in life. In a collective sense, how we have suffered, and more importantly, what we can do about it.
“Towards the Lion” – a Memoir
At 23, Arjuna’s health collapsed and his chosen career abruptly ended. The author saw this as a sign to search for insight into the human condition and connect with his true inner self. Over time it became a research project into what makes for holistic health and wellbeing.
