“The experience of being with somebody of true wisdom is that they can love you but not judge you, and I think we spend a lot of our lives judging ourselves.”
In this edition of the Healing Wisdom Podcast, John Stewart, one of the founders of the acclaimed holistic health resort Kamalaya in Thailand, shares his own incredible journey of personal transformation. John reflects upon a meeting that changed his life as a teen, and how he lives his life today, helping others to “move into life.”
Being a monk, but also a successful business man, John managed to find the balance between these opposite worlds. He explains that the answer to a more fulfilled life, a life that balances between spirituality and consumerism, is to simply make better choices. He muses that we need to detach from the outer influences and have the courage and curiosity to turn within to find our path to self-love and happiness.
“For me, happiness really truly comes from taking care of people.”
