This conversation offers a fascinating exploration of the miraculous potential and dramatic dangers of the guru/disciple relationship and intensive spiritual practice. By examining the extraordinary life choices of Tim Dyson you will see what draws people to engage in extreme forms of spiritual practice, what can happen when it goes well, what happens when it goes wrong, and what we can learn from it all.
As a teenager in England Tim sought meaning in the anarchist messages of punk rock until a health crisis, caused by his punk rock lifestyle brought him to the spiritual path. His path began when he worked with two Chinese masters of chi gong. This proved to be a stepping stone to becoming one of the closest disciples of a Balinese kundalini master. Tim then devoted 12 years of his life participating in intensive spiritual practices at his teacher’s ashram in Bali.
