Gerry was born in Tipperary, Ireland, and grew up in Belfast. In 1977 he undertook a life-changing journey through Afghanistan, Kashmir and the Himalayas. Returning home, he gave up his career in architecture to become a ‘spiritual seeker’. Wishing to do things properly, Thompson relocated to the USA, and immersed himself in the Californian hotbed of New-Ageism – doing every workshop, following every guru and consulting every psychic in sight.
In 1985, Gerry was initiated into the esoteric buddhist Kalichakra tradition in the mountains of Switzerland by His Holiness the Dalai Lama of Tibet. He then became a professional author, writing on subjects of holistic health, wellbeing and humour.
