About Jonathan

Since as far back as he can remember, Jonathan has been aware of many profound and subtle aspects of Life and the true nature of Man. His approach to the world is through the natural Living Wisdom and Living Intelligence of the Heart. Over the course of his life-time, this approach has enabled him to work through the many obstructions that prevent ordinary Man from perceiving reality as it is. It also helped him find, or be found by, a number of true masters who have provided, and continue to provide, indispensable assistance along the way.

Whilst still enduring his final years at school, Jonathan started deeply exploring inner consciousness. Since leaving school, at 17 in New Zealand, he has pursued many decades of training and world exploration, delving into the nature of Life and Reality beyond the usual sense of separation, duality, and confusion many people find their perception veiled by. Through the spontaneous and on-going recollection of many so-called life-times, Jonathan innately understands and embodies a diverse spectrum of the empowering principles found within the art and science of Yoga, Tibetan Buddhism, Vedic and Buddhist Tantra, Western Mysticism, Toltec wisdom, Hawaiian Huna wisdom, Ayurveda, Vedic science, herbalism, traditional naturopathy, and shamanism.

Since the early 1990’s Jonathan has lived and studied with teachers with a background in numerous branches of self-mastery and the true potential of Man. Some of the most influential of those teachers were a Buddhist monk and master homeopath in the Swiss Alps, an Hawaiian Kahuna (Shaman-Priest), Yogis in the mountains of Colorado and New Zealand, numerous gifted healers, a bush doctor on the island of Dominica in the Caribbean, a kundalini and Kashmiri Shivaism master in Germany, the Living Earth (through deep contemplation and journeying to sacred sites in many areas around the world), and an exceptional master of the Andean spiritual and shamanic arts from Colombia (to whom he is presently apprenticed).

Xolar Vibronics, and the Original Living Wisdom

Jonathan is a certified Xolar Vibronics Practitioner. His training and apprenticeship commenced in early 2013, and has taken place in the United States and Colombia.

His training as a Xolar Vibronics practitioner, and in traditional spiritual ecology, is in the form of a long-term apprenticeship and spiritual training with Mama Koginka K’Amaru Xue—a legendary shamanic healer and maestro of the Original Andean Spiritual Arts, from Colombia. His teacher works very closely with the Kogi Mamas in Colombia. A mama is a highly trained spiritual elder of the indigenous people in Colombia, and, in this case, specifically the Kogi people, who reside in the high Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta mountains of Colombia.

Xolar Vibronics is the ancient Andean solar healing arts (for the holistic healing of people and the planet), refined and organised for the present day through the life-long dedication of Koginka Xue. These principles and practices provide a means for people to recover consciousness of their original identity, their natural state of wholeness and health, and to resume functioning in the world in the way it was originally intended for humans to function.

Jonathan found the beautiful and wise teachers he crossed paths with reflected to him the wisdom contained within the inner sanctuary of his Heart, reminding him of That which is perfectly natural and in accordance with Reality. He refers to this wisdom as Wisdom for a Life of Freedom. It is also known as The Original Living Wisdom.

Jonathan’s approach to Life is as pragmatic as it is esoteric. He is a firm advocate of people being real, authentic, and down-to-Earth, whilst actively exploring and participating in the more subtle aspects of Life and Reality. He sees it as Man’s purpose—males and females alike—to take up the responsibility and spiritual maturity of actively assisting the Earth in Her evolution, harmonisation, and emergence. His present teacher, and the Kogi Mamos, are masters of the ancient art and science of consciously participating in and harmonising the eco-energetics of the planet.

This web site is one of the ways Jonathan is fulfilling his agreement to share the Original Wisdom of the Heart with those interested in genuine spiritual awakening, which means awakening to oneself as a living spirit, and fulfilling the natural function of the spirit in accordance with the Power that is creating you.
