JULIE CHIMES - AUTHOR
I was once a 'successful' businesswoman, racing cars and working in London as director of marketing for two innovative companies. However in my early thirties life was irrevocably changed during a frenzied knife attack by a paranoid schizophrenic, who entered my home on a 'mission to save the world'. In the midst of attempted murder, I discovered 'I' existed beyond the body. From this place beyond physical form I felt love, compassion and profound forgiveness towards my deranged attacker. In a blaze of light the answers to life's big questions began to be revealed and an enthusiasm and longing to understand and share the true purpose of human life exploded within me.
During the last twenty-five years my quest has been to find teachings and individuals who could help me understand the experiences and how to delve even deeper into life's mysteries and learn how to stay connected! I have travelled to many countries and lived and studied with saints, healers and mystics, meeting more than a few snake oil charmers enroute. I wrote 'A Stranger in Paradise' to share something of these inner adventures. It has attracted positive and mainstream media attention around the world, I think because readers were as shocked at the humour as well as the violence and concept of a consciousness beyond this body! I also wrote the script and co-directed a critically acclaimed BBC documentary about my near death experiences, which almost had me losing the will to live, but therein lies another tale!
I have enjoyed sharing my understanding and perspectives with wonderfully diverse audiences and love the creativity and connections that have evolved from encounters on my travels around our beautiful Mother Earth. In 2008, in the company of some amazing people, I was awarded the honour of becoming a 'Hero of Forgiveness' by the Worldwide Forgiveness Alliance based in the USA, in recognition of my work in this field. I believe forgiveness to be major key to finding peace and ultimately the truth of who we are. If you would like to interview me or invite me to speak, please contact me HERE and include links to your website and social media.
I am currently involved in some fabulous projects, including writing my 'Further adventures in Paradise' in musical form, (CLICK TITLES TO FIND OUT MORE) VERITAS! TIME TO WAKE UP. I am about to launch an exciting new series of podcast, radio show and blogs, TALES FROM THE NASHRAM finding the extraordinary in the midst of the mundane. I have some fabulous guest lined up who you most probably have never heard of..you are going to love them!
As the daughter of two charismatic, larger than life celebrities, I have inherited a passion for this life and I hope, as is written on a family headstone, 'A TALENT TO AMUSE'.
