The Hero's Journey
John's story is powerful beyond words. From his site, we find an incredible hero's journey through thresholds of being celibate for 9 years while traveling with the Maharishi Mahesh, sleeping on a beach homeless with two college degrees, to becoming the most sought after relationship expert in the world and writing the best selling book of all time. More from John's story page below:
“In 1978, John’s brother asked him for help from a mental hospital. His brother had suffered from bipolar disorder and he was struggling to find happiness. John had encouraged meditation for him in the past but it did not help. So John left the Transcendental Meditation movement and Maharishi and returned to the United States to try to help his brother get out of depression.
John ended up in Los Angeles, California hoping to find the cure for his brother’s bipolar disorder. Los Angeles had become a hot bed of new therapies like Gestalt, Transactional Analysis, Neuro-linguistic programming, Hypnosis, Scientology, Primal Scream, EST, insight Seminars, Rebirthing and Loving Relationship Trainings. But first he had to find a place to sleep.
John was homeless and living primarily on a beach in Santa Monica. He spent his days at part time jobs and reading psychology books in the public library. “I had 2 degrees but not much work experience on my resume. I was good at meditating for hours, teaching yoga and living simply with peace of mind,“ remembers John, “But those things couldn't pay all the bills back then.” Every couple days, John saved enough money for a hotel room where he could take a shower and sleep in a bed. But most nights were spent on the beach.
John recalls one night sitting by a fire on the beach with a dozen other homeless men, trying to teach them about God and their true purpose in life. “They said to me, ‘John, we love listening to you, but we have no idea what you’re talking about.’ I knew I was in the wrong place and need to move on. This was definitely not my audience,” recalls John……”
