Jeremy likes to know what it’s like to walk in other people’s shoes. Whilst there may be many shoes, he believes there is only one path. Jeremy sees his life’s work is to comfort the disturbed and disturb the comfortable. He believes that if all the world’s religious leaders came together, they would all agree on their values, but may disagree on their beliefs.
He believes that if you always know how things are going to turn out then they could never be better than you can imagine. His ideal is to treat his body as a temple rather than an amusement park. However, being human, this has not always been possible, producing a variety of outcomes.
In September 2018 Jeremy ran a marathon (42 km) across the Sydney Harbour Bridge. He perceives running to be a metaphor for life and has found several clichés to support this idea - one step at a time, one foot in front of the other, when you’re going through hell, keep going, a journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. To remind himself of this he runs 5km almost every morning.
Jeremy has a collection of several dozen African djembes and other hand drums which he enjoys sharing with other players, and has taught thousands of first timers that their continuing heartbeat reflects their intrinsic rhythmic ability.
Jeremy has a Bachelor degree in Psychology and is an experienced professional counsellor. He is a certified Ka Huna Bodywork massage therapist and member of the IICT (International Institute of Complementary Therapists.) He is trained in and has practised Transcendental Meditation, Mindfulness meditation, OSHO Active Meditations, Sri Chinmoy meditation, Rajah Yoga Meditation and Tibetan Buddhist deep throat chanting as practised by the Gyuto monks of Dharamsala in India. He enjoys a vegetarian diet and black coffee, and movies with story lines enquiring into why we are here and what it all means.
