Tom Evans is nearly 63 years young and on a mission to discover what he wants to do when he grows up.

He started his professional life as a BBC TV engineer. Somewhere along the way, he became an author, an author’s mentor, a healer and a meditation guide — all by accident.

These days he has morphed into a novelist and composer of ambient music.

Tom is just publishing his 17th book and has had well over 3 million listeners to his meditations and music.

Tom’s passion is to research what is known as esoteric, the unknown — and to make it exoteric — known, understood and useable. It is this research that has lead him to becoming what is known as a modern day mystic, seer, and channel. Tom makes no claim to any special powers as these are all nascent in all of us — just poised to be awoken.
