About Guy Harriman

I was born in the UK and went to Leeds University Medical school for one year at the age of 18, before dropping out and getting interested in electronic music. Through designing and building synthesizers I decided to study Electronics at Manchester University, and then worked for 23 years as a chip designer, moving to Silicon Valley in 1989 to work for Steve Jobs at NeXT. I worked at Cisco Systems for 6 years, leaving in 2000, and then focused on my yoga teacher and body and energy worker spiritual journey. I started yoga in 1979, when I also became a vegetarian. I turned vegan in 1985. I started teaching Reiki in 1996, and learned Tibetan Chi Gong in 1997. I first traveled to Thailand in 1998, and then lived in Chiang Mai, in the north of Thailand, up to 6 months a year, most years until I moved there in 2008. I bought some land just outside Chiang Mai that year and built a Healing Center there. I wrote my first book, The Power of Failure, in three weeks during March 2013.

Review by: Hans Solomark on Aug. 08, 2013 :
I had downloaded this wonderful book to read while on vacation, and was so glad I did! Guy Harriman adds a master's touch in this gentle but sometimes startling treatise on the human condition. Like any good teacher, he invites you to rise above the everyday experience of life and to take a peek at the greater reality through a selfless lens. Relying on anecdote and example, he carefully and often humorously pulls a reader through many stages of the soul's path toward understanding and compassion. There are so many "ah-ha" moments in this book!

In short, The Power of Failure is a gift from a humble yet powerful teacher. I hope this is only the first in a long line of books by Guy Harriman!

Guy Harriman’s stories and insights are an invitation to experience the is-ness of life – beyond thoughts, judgments and expectations. And, what is, what will be discovered, is what always has been here – contentment. What a beautiful reminder, to be present, to be in full power, To Be!

This book delivers stories that are of great value for anyone looking to enhance their current understandings - nicely amusing too! Even for those of us unused to operating with some of this vocabulary, and the associated meanings, the many messages in the book are still clear and instructive.
