Colin (author pen-name, QC Ellis), says about himself:


Hi, my good friends say I’m “spiritual” but I’d have thought they’d know me better. I guess they might mean they see me wanting to help people when I can – that compassionate side. Or maybe they have experienced my intuition – I am an INFP (Meyer-Briggs Introvert, iNtuitive, Feeling, Perceptive). I think it is just because I’ve spent more time than most on meditation and other retreats and studying personal and spiritual development.

Yes, I want to share the wisdom I’ve gathered, but I also know one-size-DOESN’T-fit-all. I love to teach people who want to learn from experience (not just be spoon-fed). I love to coach people who have a desire to expand and grow but I also know most people would do this naturally if it were not for the weeds in their mind which throttle their dreams. So, I’ve become a week-killer!

Although, initially, I went on the courses and retreats, etc., for my own growth – to stop my own weeds from overpowering me – my life is now about supporting others to achieve peace, joy and fulfilment.


What People Actually Say About Colin

“He is too modest to say this himself…”

  • He hasn’t just done a few meditation retreats – he has been on 3, 6 & 9 month-long Buddhist retreats! In total, over 750 days in silent retreat (most of which was also solitary). He has also been a Retreat Co-ordinator.
  • He doesn’t just do the first level of courses and skills but masters them.
  • His CV includes: Royal Marine Commando at age 16, plus College Lecturer, Project Development and Company Director (mostly for charitable organisations) [Colin’s note: “also many minor jobs; but even in those you mention I was mainly the Chief Bottle Washer and Tissue-Fetcher”].
  • Like Rocky, he has been hit over and over – including a decade of what’s called the Dark Night Of the Soul – but he got through and bounced back.
  • You know when he is stressed because he is even quieter than normal – not wanting to infect anyone with his internal stuff – yet he is still Mr Positive [Colin’s note: read about how I went from Mr Positive to being unable to be positive in seconds (it lasted years), in volume 2 of my new series – due out in March 2019.
  • He is down-to-earth: yet his teaching is inspired!
  • As a coach he is like an evil genius; the way he makes problems magically disappear [Colin’s note: “The weeds are dead, long live the true YOU”]
