More about Kris
Born in wartime London in the Year of the Dragon and a hail of bombs, Kris spent his childhood in South America and teen years in the turbulence of Mau-Mau Kenya. At age fifteen the Wakamba tribe initiated him as an honorary member. Dancing in their drum-circles he witnessed fire-bathing adepts roll around in flames, unharmed. Military action in South Arabia and Borneo introduced him to real-life death. Service with the Gurkhas of Nepal steeped him in the culture and traditions of these Kali-worshippers and their rituals of blood-sacrifice. 25 years in business and management followed, until Kris changed his life, to oriental healing and martial arts. In 1991, he set out to learn from masters throughout Asia, Japan and USA. Impressed by the teachings of Mantak Chia, Kris embraced the Tao.
In 1993 he came home to the scepter’d isle, to found the Universal Healing Tao Center, Chi Nei Tsang Institute, and Zen School of Shiatsu, the latter becoming in 2010 the first Shiatsu School to achieve University accreditation. Kris sat on the Assessment Panel of the Shiatsu Society UK, before founding the Zen Shiatsu Society in 2004. He was closely involved with Skills for Health drafting the Shiatsu National Occupational Standard and in 2009 was appointed to the Shiatsu Professional Board of the Complementary and Natural Healthcare Council, the UK Regulator for complementary medicine.
Master of the Zen School, Taoist Master Trainer and Licensed Trainer of Neurolinguistic Programming, Kris Deva North has practised healing meditation since 1972 and the Taoist Arts since 1985. He integrates Shamanic, Tantric and Taoist traditions from his experiences, travelling with a Thai Buddhist monk; satsang with Shiva Saddhus in the Himalaya, Shamans of Africa, North America and Hawaii; Aboriginal men of high degree in Australia; darshan with the Dalai Lama; witnessing last rites in Varanasi and puja with the Brahmins of Pushkar.
To balance his grounding in ancient practices Kris keeps up with the most advanced modern Life-training techniques, from the Mind Dynamics of the 1970s to state-of-the-art NLP of the new millennium. In 2006 he founded the Healing NLP Institute after training with Richard Bandler and Paul McKenna, pioneers of modern shamanic practice through their work with altered states.
His UK national TV appearances include Bliss, Emma Freud’s series on Sex and Religion; Nick Hancock’s Sex and Stopping – History of Contraception; Carlton TV City Survival Guide. In 2004 Channel 4 made an observational documentary of his teaching Taoist practices to a group of celebrities: Extreme Celebrity Detox.
Published work includes the articles Zen as a Philosophical Discipline; Taoist Teaching, Taoist Practice, Taoist Life; An overview of Chi Nei Tsang; Shiatsu – Ancient Medicine for the 21st Century; Calabash of Light – Hawaiian Huna Healing; and the definitive 1998 Interview with Mantak Chia, ‘A Modern Taoist Master’ with whom Kris co-authored ‘A Touch of Sex: Shiatsu Secrets for Love’ republished by Bear and Company in July 2010 as ‘Taoist Foreplay.’ Kris has also written the definitive ‘Finding Spirit in Zen Shiatsu,’ published November 2006, and contributed with Wayne Dyer and others to ‘Bouncing Back: Thriving in Changing Times’ an anthology on success in recession, published February 2010. In November 2010 he published ‘The Taoist Medicine Wheel’ republished with Mantak Chia as‘Taoist Shaman’ by Bear & Co in January 2011.
His latest work ‘Absolutely Scandalous: The Outrageous Affaires of Captain Harry West’ came out in November 2012.
Kris lives in London with his partner Anamarta who facilitates the Jade Circle for Women, the practices of Kuan Yin.
We’ll be interviewing Anamarta for Earth School on January 23, 2014. Register alongside to be reminded about this upcoming call.

“We’re all chasing the extraordinary but it is the ordinary that really counts”
Dr Brené Brown
Here ‘s a powerful few minutes from Oprah’s Soul Sunday – with Brené Brown, author of Daring Greatly.
Brene Brown says that joy is the most terrifying emotion because we are scared this moment will be taken away from us if we’re too joyful.”
Joyful people practice gratitude in this moment.
“Cultivating gratitude and joy is the way home”
Says Oprah Winfrey,
“…..but you have to work at it.”
So how do we work on it?
Gratitude is seeing and consciously appreciating the little things
taking time to see and admire nature.
sunrise, sunset, autumn colors…
watching the flames of an ordinary/extraordinary fire
Here’s a pic of a bushveld fire I had the pleasure of enjoying recently.
One forgets how good these little moments are for one’s soul.
Or just appreciating the things we already have that we take for granted.
Our health, our family doing things around us, friendship…even everyday technology ….
Simply seeing that the ordinary that is really the extraordinary.
Here are some leaves from the parking lot of my local supermarket.
But what has this
to do with happiness and vulnerability? More about this vital connection here.

Here’s a great, proactive Ted Talk on bees by Marla Spivak: Why bees are disappearing and what you personally can do to help them.
Plant more bee friendly flowers! Healthy, pesticide free preferably local/indigenous flowers.
Anywhere. Everywhere. Even in city window boxes.
I’m going to re-invent my garden totally.
It would also be great if legislation could be created to require mono-culture agricultures to grow bee friendly hedges or corridors between their “flower deserts”.
