About the Author
David Carlyle grew up in Ottawa, Canada, the son of civil servant parents and a middle class society during the decades of draft dodgers, hippy communes, Pink Floyd and Timothy Leary extolling LSD use as a valid expression of self discovery. David was an actor with the National Arts Centre Student Young Company at 15, a 5 star hotel chef at 18 and businessman by 25. He has travelled extensively throughout Europe and lived in Los Angeles, California, before moving to back to Canada. He now lives in Vancouver, Canada. David has written four popular ebooks on spirituality, Buddhism and meditation.
On his 59th birthday David published his first book titled "Grief, Meth, Addiction, God & Zen". It was the long overdue admission of what had been years of struggle with grief, addiction and clinical depression. His is a story of triumph over the ravages of a lost soul wallowing in hedonistic pleasures only to finally realize he could own his future and rebuild a life with dignity.
"Spirituality, or simply reflection and meditation can be central to who we are, who we desire to be, and how we perceive our world. Our greatest struggle is always with our own mind, our desires and our ego. Eventually we learn we are simply what we do, each moment defining who we are at that moment."
~ David Carlyle
