Paul was born in Connemara, West of Ireland and grew up on a farm where cutting turf, saving hay and milking cows were the order of the day! This gave Paul a connection to animals, the land and the community at a very early age.
Paul then went on to join the Irish army and spent 9 years serving in the forces, including being sent overseas with United Nations peacekeeping force. During this time, while serving in Lebanon, Paul had a near death experience and came home with a different outlook on life. This was probably the start of Paul’s spiritual path.
Some of the traumas experienced while overseas in the army were healed through the process of Reiki initiations and this led Paul on to develop his work more deeply with spirit. Paul’s introduction to shamanism was a like a coming home.
