This episode features Brian Ahern, author of the amazingThe Adventures of Kozmos Lovejoy, Exp.
Brian Ahern attended San Francisco State University and experienced the psychedelic revolution of the 1960s with a deepening of spiritual understanding and a new awareness of transcendence. During this period he had a dream, a vivid lucid dream, that came true in the jungles of Mexico launching him on a spiritual journey for the rest of his life.
In the 1970s he lived on a yoga ashram in the desert outside of Santa Fe, New Mexico where he practiced kundalini yoga, mediation, organic gardening, massage and nutrition before moving to Denver where he founded another yoga ashram and organic food restaurant before traveling to Europe where he studied with the Sufis in the French Alps as described in his memoir The Adventures of Kozmos Lovejoy, Exp.
In 2010 he was diagnosed with stage four colorectal cancer and his spiritual learning and natural lifestyle was put to the test. He declined chemotherapy and radiation opting for surgery, meditation, herbs, monoatomic gold and a number of alternative medical and emotional modalities. After five years he was released from oncology supervision as “the healthiest cancer patient we’ve ever released.”
