Philip Shepherd

Philip Shepherd’s life can best be described as “outside of the box”. At 18, he left his native Canada to cycle alone from Europe to India, intent on immersing himself in exotic cultures. Shepherd’s exploits took him to some unexpected places: from star-filled nights in the Great Syrian Desert to Japan, where he studied classical Noh Theater. Along the way he experienced countless ways of living unlike anything he had known in Canada.


As he absorbed the lessons he learned from those different cultures, Shepherd began applying those principles to aspects of Western culture that are generally accepted as “normal”. The insights he gained left him more connected with his life, more open to the present, and more clearly grounded in his purpose than ever before.


Philip is the Author of New Self, New World.
