For Lance Collins, life was simple and idyllic growing up in the suburbs of Southern California in the 1960s. His family moved to Venezuela In 1972, where he ended up living the better part of the next seven years experiencing a much larger world of possibilities. He guided tours to Angel Falls in the jungle of Venezuela, rubbed elbows with the financial elite of Caracas in public relations, and assisted the US embassy mission.
At the age of 24, a horseback riding accident in Mexico catapulted Lance into his career as a holistic health practitioner. Decades of debilitating back pain taught him much about the mind/body connection, not widely considered in the practice of modern medicine. Scouring the United States looking for someone to help him out of pain, he found healers that became mentors. They taught him that miracles are not miracles, but are often a higher form of understanding and knowledge, prompting him to become a certified holistic health practitioner from the San Diego School of Healing Arts in 1995.
Over the next ten years, Lance developed a successful practice in San Diego, California. His long list of clients included horses and Thai forest monks. The surf-turned-healer realized that there was still more to learn about the human condition and the connection between emotions, thoughts, and physical discomfort; a subject that Buddha discussed in detail 2500 years ago.
In his quest to delve deeper into experiencing that understanding, Lance moved to Thailand in 2007. He discovered he was on the right continent, but in the wrong country. His intuition led him to the Himalayas of India, and Nepal, where his perception of what is possible expanded beyond anything he had previously imaged, including writing books. For the last nine years, Lance has been living in Southeast Asia continuing his bodywork practice, writing, and taking month long treks to remote areas.
