John Campbell, Personal Coach, Author and Public Speaker, has recovered from a life of corporate ‘high flying’ and addictions to alcohol and drugs to realize the innocence within him and all humanity. A visionary, writer, and inspirational speaker on ‘conscious living’ whose passion now is to assist in transforming the way people perceive themselves, others and the world in general.
John supports individuals and groups in live workshops and teleclasses in understanding that they are the co-creators of their lives and experiences and helps them become free of victim consciousness by his commitment to the principles in the teachings of ‘A Course in Miracles’ of which he is an avid student.
He built up a multi million dollar oil and shipping business and was formerly a sea captain in the Merchant Navy where he obtained his first ‘command’ as Captain at the age of 26 years and owned his first ship at the age of 37. His slide down the slippery slope of addiction led him into a corrupt business involving smuggling oil from Africa and whiskey into Saudi Arabia. In 1997 he hit rock bottom and admitted himself into a treatment facility for addictive disorders where he experienced a profound spiritual awakening. This led him on a 10 year search for Truth and during this time he experienced many incredible teachings and trainings until he found ‘A Course in Miracles’ which is the path he has decided works best for him.
He qualified as an NLP practitioner, hypnotherapist and Angel Therapy Practitioner© trained by Dr Doreen Virtue PhD author of numerous books on Angels. He is a former Vice Chairman of Brighton and Hove Albion Football Club and maintains his interest in the sport. He travels the world practicing the principles of A Course In Miracles as best he can and stays grounded in the understanding that he is a continual student of this work and thus a teacher of its principles. His first book, ‘Addicts and Angels -A Smugglers Voyage to Enlightenment’ which tells the fascinating story of his life path is due to be published in December 2009.
