International Website Additions

An early interest in geology and spirituality led me to an appreciation of the scientist/priest Teilhard de Chardin who had spent many years searching for ancient hominid remains in the Gobi Desert. From the age of 12, I was determined to get to the Gobi. A decade ago I met Tim Cope, author of ‘On the Trail of Genghis Khan’ at a conference we were both speaking at and resolved to travel to the Mongolian edge of the Gobi Desert with him. We are both enamored of nomads, their moving lifestyle and understanding of vast wilderness domains, of grass and sand, mountain and sky.

The Himalayas, after my home in the South Island of NZ, is my second paradise on earth.
Here the most sublime soaring mountain wildernesses are populated by cultures steeped in Buddhism and Hinduism whose mystical teachings I have studied all of my life.
From the Newar, the master craftsman artists of the Kathmandu Valley in Nepal to the most inconspicuous  decorations by a villager anywhere in the high valleys there is always a wonderful aesthetic feel and delight in all the Tibetan Buddhist mountain culture create.

Newest Arrival
Gorgeous Levitating Moon Lamp

This gravity-defying moon lamp seems to magically “float” above a wooden base and slowly rotates just like the real orbiting moon. Made from PLA material, this 3D printed full moon even has a textured surface, just like the moon’s own craters and glows in 3 different light modes. Suspended by a strong built-in magnet it creates a fascinating replica of the real thing.
