My life as a kid had embedded some deep core wounds which i had spent the most of my life at that point diving deeply into on the side of my hospitality career. And a chef’s job is not by far the most cohesive environment for healing.
I simply thought about being free of the suffering. Hospitality was actually a vehicle to me to generate money, read about the world & travel. On the side I would travel from the North of Australia in the wintertime season, for the southern parts for the summers working on farms in the middle. It absolutely was an endless summer of finding individuals to learn different healing modalities & bodywork from, at the same time working in idyllic locations just like the wilderness of Tasmania in eco lodges, the deserts of Australia.
I set my 1975 4WD Land Rover Series 3 on top of solar panels, 3 batteries, and kitchen inside my trailer, and I would go and do vision quests in the desert for 40 – two months asking them questions in deep contemplative states to find answers about life no-one had been able to help me to with. I traveled All that mighty land called Australia over 20 years doing work in the best restaurants around australia as well as the world.
I even worked in a fine dining restaurant within the desert which was booked 2 weeks ahead of time & was the Sommelier selling wines approximately Au$4400 per bottle! I am talking about, exactly what a ride. Some of the those who own these places inspired me incredibly and i also cannot thank them enough. One chef, Stefano de Pieri wasn’t even a qualified chef and had his very own T.V channel and one of the better restaurant in the world. Mind blown I was thinking damn, you just need passion in everyday life and motivation.

The more I learnt about creation of our foods, the better I realized how messed up things were. I took focus on a chicken-processing farm for six or seven weeks to really see exactly what is going on. What did I learn? We have been really disconnected to what is in fact happening. And when we percieve cuts of meat all cleaned and bleached in the supermarkets or sent to our establishments, whatever we are missing and never connecting to is all the suffering that is included with it. And That I don’t just mean the animals, for certain that’s obvious. But those who function in these places have severe mental illness. They are those who tend not to squeeze into society, cannot hold a conversation with “normal” folk. Cannot turn up to operate all dressed sharp while keeping it together. Nope, these folks require our help.
