Travels with a Monkey Mind
HOW MY KARMA RAN OVER MY DOGMA
Graham Shepherd was born in Dublin, Ireland, in 1943. As a graphic designer he spent fifteen years in RTE, the Irish state broadcaster, and ten years with BBC in London. He is also a lecturer in several design disciplines including film animation and photography and has had exhibitions of his work. More recently he has written and delivered modular forms of art education as well as directing art programmes for people with disabilities.
A parallel activity has been an engagement with Buddhism since the 1970s and an affinity with Asia. He has been fortunate enough to meet and study with some eminent teachers in that tradition. Graham lives in Brighton, England. He has five children and five grandchildren.
