10 years ago Peter’s life on the outside was incredibly successful. He was the founder of a fast-growing media and technology company operating in nine countries when he was under the age of thirty. He had all the trappings of wealth and success from the outside whilst the reality was, Peter was physically and mentally burnt out and found himself in hospital for the third time in one year due to stress and exhaustion.

Peter went through a journey
to learn to reconnect to his
consciousness and health.

introduced to meditation through Gary
and his teachings. Finally, Peter found
someone who could teach him meditation
and mindfulness tools while being
scientific, contemporary and relatable
in his teaching approach.
The teacher-student relationship evolved into
a friendship which led
