Personal Development

 Sect Involvement 

1967 aged 12 years of age my mother gets me involved in the notorious Melbourne Australia Sect called “The Family” 

Fortunately, I was not one of the children adopted by the cult leader.

This introduced me to meditation and Eastern spiritual philosophies. I read “Autobiography of a Yogi” by Paramahansa Yogananda and ” Science of Breath” by Yogi Ramacharaka
