Don V. Lax has been playing music and writing poetry since the age of five. During a childhood spent travelling and living in India, Pakistan, France, Italy, and the United States, he was exposed to and opened by the spiritual traditions of many cultures.
Many years of immersion in the deep practices of Tantra, Hinduism, Buddhism, Sufism, and Mystical Christianity have led to a synthesis within himself, culminating over the past fifteen years on Maui with the Diamond Approach of A.H. Almaas.
A professional violinist, Don has always shared his musical spirit with the world. He has recorded numerous albums with many great musicians in multiple genres and performed with everything from Middle Eastern musicians to symphony orchestras and major rock bands. The poetry has been a more intimate expression of the heart and soul, shared with close friends, lovers, and family. An exploration of deeper realms of personal and universal spiritual healing, with daily meditation and expression through poetry, has led to the creation of this book.
