Muz Murray, a world-travelling mystic and adventurer, is a spiritual mentor and Mantra Yogi, a practised story teller, surrealist painter and illustrator and formerly, a Scenic Artist & Costume Designer and actor in theatre and film, a stuntman and singer, zoo-keeper, elephant trainer, art teacher, deckhand, Night-club singer and many other weird and wonderful occupations, during his mostly penniless travels halfway around the world.

Because of his wild adventures—being shot at by bandits, surviving knife attacks, hold-ups, poisoned darts and an earthquake—while hitch-hiking all down the length of Africa; crossing deserts, living with Dervishes in Turkey and Iran and hanging on to the outside of an express train all through the night in India, the Mind, Body & Spirit journals have dubbed him the “Indiana Jones of Yoga.”

He now lives a quiet hermit-like life, writing up half a century of spiritual research into his books, mentoring his students and offering rare Advaita and Mantra Retreats.
