Chris had an unconventional upbringing with his single parent psychic/healer Buddhist Mother in the countryside of rural England. The nature of her beliefs exposed him to some extraordinary things, where crystal healing, dowsing, tree hugging, and meditation all formed a natural part of his early life.
He moved to London at nineteen to work for a Government Department - The Foreign & Commonwealth Office. He was broke, depressed and had no real direction in life. He discovered a New Age book in a bag his Mother had packed for him that reawakened his spiritual connections and took him on a five-year journey from depression to happiness.
Working as a Diplomat, he was exposed to surreal moments that supported his journey of self-discovery in ways he could never have imagined. He escorted George Bush to the toilet! Saw the first hand reaction of Tony Blair being told about the 7/7 London Bombings. Worked in Iraq for eight months. Taught a Major in the Army how to meditate & practiced Tai Chi in body armour. Chris was under attack from rockets most nights & came close to death twice. He worked in Burma during an uprising, where he flouted the security restrictions imposed on him by travelling with a Monk to his retreat, and learnt life-changing lessons in the process that gave him the inspiration to write The Lost Keys. This Monk told Chris that he had reached a stage in his spiritual development that most people only begin to touch on during their middle age.
Chris also worked for the Prime Minister, David Cameron, for two years as his assistant, and was very privileged to witness some incredible, awe-inspiring events. He then went to India for a three month meditation and yoga retreat where he decided the time was right to publish The Lost Keys.
He has travelled the globe with work, and privately, learning and absorbing everything in his path, and all of this by the tender age of 28. These secrets to happiness, discovered in the last five years, are shared openly, honestly and with humour. Each chapter is a Lost Key, a lesson or two that will help the reader unlock their own secrets to true happiness.
