Chris Srigley

In nearly four decades of life, Chris has had his ups and downs. He has used his life experience to test the techniques in this book, and now he has created a life that is a living dream!

As Chris says, “This book is not only about the fight against a physical opponent but a fight to liberate one's mind and emotions because our toughest opponent lies within ourselves. Just to let you know, if I can figure out life, you can, too.”

Chris has studied with many teachers over the years, some through their books, videos and life work, others he has trained with personally. His teachers include Bruce Lee, Morihei Ueshiba, Helio Gracie, Jesus, Krishnamurthi, Bodhi Dharma, Buddha and Thich Nhat Hahn. Other instructors who have crossed his path and influenced his life include Nick Tarpin, Sonny Ono, John Morrow, Jess Mills, John Natividad, Jose Luis Murillo, Bodhi, and Jeff Laurell. Chris express his heartfelt gratitude to all his teachers for their words, messages, shared personal struggles, insight and support along his way.   

Chris acknowledges God in all he receives. His family’s blessings, his spiritual nature and his prosperity all come from keeping his priorities in line with those of the great masters who have taught him these truths. Chris wouldn’t want to be anyone else and if you look at his exceptional family you’ll see why!
