Dennis was a successful business executive in London when he went with a friend to India and looked into the eyes of his friend's Guru. He saw a really happy man with sparking eyes. He returned home to find his wife of 17 years wanted to leave him and he was no longer motivated to do his high powered job. He went on a spiritual adventure which culminated in his creating his own 'cave in the mountains' which was in fact an apartment in a small German village. There he spent 18 months meditating for 8 hours a day working through the path of the Jhanas as outlined by Ayya Khema, until he found freedom.
