About the Author

Paul is an Aboriginal man belonging to the land of the Worimi people on the east coast of Australia. For many years Paul did everything he could to be the perfect son, the perfect brother, the perfect student, the perfect friend, the perfect husband, the perfect father and the perfect employee.

On the day of his 35th birthday, his world came crashing down when the burden of trying to be all things to all people at all times became too much. His journey through depression was a much needed voyage of reflection and self growth.

During this journey, Paul was given something he had been told did not exist. He was given insight and learning about Aboriginal culture, philosophy and spirituality that has been in existence for over 60,000 years. This knowledge has changed his life in a profound way.

Through finding himself and living his story, over the past 20 years Paul has become a successful CEO with over 1,200 staff, a mentor for over 200 men, a caring father and husband and a passionate advocate of sharing the ancient wisdom of his ancestors.

Through various models, exercises and insights you can now embrace the beauty and power of Aboriginal culture, philosophy and spirituality to achieve improved wellbeing regardless of your culture or background.

Written for people everywhere, iridescence will help you find your colours and live your story.
