background

was born in Tipperary,Ireland, and grew up in Belfast. In 1977 he undertook a life-changing journey through Afghanistan, Kashmir and the Himalayas. Returning home, he gave up his career in architecture to become a ‘spiritual seeker’. Wishing to do things properly, Thompson relocated to the USA, and immersed himself in the Californian hotbed of New-Ageism – doing every workshop, following every guru and consulting every psychic in sight.

In 1985, Gerry was initiated into the esoteric buddhist Kalichakra tradition in the mountains of Switzerland by His Holiness the Dalai Lama of  Tibet. He then moved professionally into the world of personal growth and spiritual development, becoming a Shiatsu therapist and healer.  He also began to write on subjects of holistic health, wellbeing and humour. Gerry has now written sixteen books, with more on the way. The goals of this work revolved around resolve personal issues, living one’s dream, creating personal freedom, expressing  one’s unique creativity, enjoying life – and being funny.

Gerry has been working in the mind-body-spirit world for over thirty years, offering talks, seminars, workshops, counselling and healing services. He has also worked as a fruit picker, truck driver, magazine editor, and book designer.
