Ambrose Avery III

Biography

Ambrose Avery III is a Certified Professional Life-Coach, (CPC) and a Certified Family Herbalist, (CFH) He is also a "hierophant," known as the "esoteric life-coach." A hierophant is an "interpreter of sacred esoteric mysteries, or doctrines." The most unique definition of a hierophant though is, a "friend."
After the devastating loss of his father in 2009, Ambrose become somewhat of a recluse. After realizing that he only had two options left, either wither away and die, or pick himself up and be an inspiration to others, he chose the latter. He used his father's death as a "springboard" back into life, instead of a "plank" to walk off of.
Since his father was his "Zen-like" answer-man," he realized that he couldn't get the answers to his deeper, more philosophical questions about life any longer; so he had to find them for himself. And the rest, as they say is history. While going through a two year long hiatus of living the ascetic life of detachment, he had a brush with what is known in esoteric circles as, the "mystical- experience." He believes that anyone can access their own Spirit and soul through the practices of ancient, "true" esoteric yoga, (Yoga in the essence of the Yogi masters of the Himalaya's, not the incomplete, exoteric, westernized, or exercise-only version of yoga taught here in the states.) This involved learning the esoteric arts of meditation, contemplation, and introspection to achieve higher-consciousness.
His mission in life is to help raise consciousness, one soul at a time, through the dissemination of obscure, esoteric teachings and wisdom.

Smashwords Interview

What are your five favorite books, and why?
I have read so many books, that this is difficult to answer.The all-time, self-help classic, Think and Grow Rich, by Napoleon Hill was the first personal-development book that I ever read. This was about 40 years ago, and it still stands as one of the best, most read, self-help books of all time. It was very influential to my early development. The Holy-Bible, the Tao, and the Gita are fascinating reads, to say the least.
As a teenager, I loved Jack London's, Call of the Wild. It was about a domesticated, pampered dog, who was stolen and forced to become a wild, sled-dog during the Klondike Gold-Rush in the late 1800's. London made you see, hear, and feel like a dog! I also enjoyed the Hardy Boys Mysteries as a youngster.
As an adult, I've enjoyed a half a dozen of Dr. Wayne Dyer's books, such as Your Sacred Self, Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life, Excuses Begone, and The Shift. I love almost all of the New-Thought Authors books of the late 1800's, and early 1900's, such as William Walker Atkinson, and Judge Thomas Troward. Thought-Vibrations by Atkinson, is a metaphysical masterpiece, and the Dore and Edinburgh Lectures by Troward were very influential. One of the most influential books that I ever read though, was Cosmic-Consciousness, by Dr. Richard M. Buck.
What do you read for pleasure?
Anything dealing with esoteric knowledge, wisdom, and higher-consciousness. These are the books that concentrate on "right-brain" activities.
