background history

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.

Gerry ran Positive Comedy for 20 years, training people in comedy, improvisation and public speaking. He now focuses on his own writing and humour, and mentors other authors in getting their books written and out to an audience.
