John Fraser's Biography
Life Coaching Services
I was born in a small fishing village in Nova Scotia, Canada. Both my parents were Deaf and as such I had the privilege of being a part of the Deaf community, learning ASL (American Sign Language) and developing an intimate understanding of Deaf Culture. Growing up with Deaf parents also helped me to appreciate Silence in more ways than one. Being Deaf, my parents had no need for noisy ‘distractions' and this probably helped me learn to be comfortable with Silence at a very early age. Growing up in the country also added to my spiritual awakening in that my back yard was a symphony of nature. I spent most of my childhood wondering through forests and meadows and feeling very attuned to the natural energies all around me. My first formal lessons on spirituality began when I was introduced to the Rosicrucian Order (AMORC) in my early twenties. Rosicrucian teachings go back to the mystery schools of ancient Egypt and Europe and involve such topics as metaphysics, mysticism, philosophy, psychology, parapsychology and science. I remained a member of the Rosicrucian Order for many years, further refining and developing my spirituality and state of Being.
Despite having a strong connection with nature and an affinity to a spiritual way of life, emotional suffering played a big part in my early adult life. I guess I would have to say that my connection to nature and my inner spirituality probably helped to prevent me from completely indentifying with my suffering and letting it consume me. This resulted in more lessons learned and also a strong desire to follow a path to helping the world become a better place. Alleviating human suffering became an important goal so I decided (was guided?) to become a therapist. I obtained a MA in Counselling Psychology from the University of British Columbia, graduating in 1994. I have been practicing as a Registered Clinical Counsellor (Registered member of the BC Association of Clinical Counsellors) since this time. Over the last several years, I would have to say that one of the strongest influences with respect to my spiritual development would have to be the writings of Eckhart Tolle (See Virtual-Meditation.Com Recommended Readings). In particular, his book, The Power of Now, A Guide to Spiritual Enlightenment, has had a big impact on how I live my life and also how I work as a clinical counsellor. My most recent project has been the development and maintenance of Virtual-Meditation.Com. I have learned a lot in developing Virtual-Meditation.Com and hope that it will be a valuable tool to help others in their pursuit of spiritual enlightenment.
