Hello my name is David Fiske.
This website was begun when I started The School of Tai Chi and Esoteric Arts. Two years ago I took a sabbatical to go around the world on a ticket given me by a woman friend I had met in an Indian ashram in 1969. I was away for 3 ½ months and when I returned decided to close my school. I practise my internal arts daily and continue my growth and exploration but currently no longer accept students.
The web site is maintained because it contains material possibly valuable for students of The Way. My own journey began in 1958 when I became aware of a spiritual hole inside and led to surprising bends and twists. At Stellenbosch University in South Africa in my second year of a B.Com. L.LB I never imagined waking up as I did in 1970 in a Madras Hotel where I was to give a lecture on meditation and Satchidananda.
I am nearly 70 years old and have begun to discover unexpected joy and happiness in life. It is a Mystery of unfolding gifts, so who knows if my School will re-open or not?
This web site was originally designed by Leona a beautiful Ghanaian who was in transit in Kingston and briefly a student who wanted me to have my book available. She worked very hard and creatively and got this started. Thank you!
Second edition by William J Hopper a very eccentric pagan philosopher who made useful changes with expanded material. Thank you!
The third edition came via Nelson Laviolette who was an observant, enthusiastic and talented student.
And now this the fourth edition to reflect my non active teaching status also designed by Nelson. A Big Thank you!
