After a typical English, middle-class upbringing he felt a strong voice inside him during his twenties that suddenly told him this was not the life he wanted. He went to Japan for answers. Trough coincidence he was intorduced to Osho there and twelve months later, arrived at Osho's ashram in Pune, India. For the next fifteen years he lived as an Osho sannyasin in India, England and America. After Osho's death he met Papaji. With him he realised a profound shift of understanding. For four years he lived close to Papaji. Then he got an inner message to leave and return to the West. After some years of teaching and travelling, a community spontaneously formed in 2004 - the Open Sky House in Germany, later on other Open Sky Houses were established in Ukraine and Spain.
