Dr. Colm Fallon.
Our founder, Dr. Colm Fallon’s journey first began in Academia. Pursuing Physics as an Undergraduate, then onto a PhD program followed by postdoctoral research. Whilst successful academically, he remained interested in deeper questions, questions such as the meaning to life, the key to happiness and the nature of the world.
In the search to answer these questions he studied yoga, Tai Chi, meditation techniques, world religions and philosophies. Personally meaning came from teaching, and so Colm spent time teaching in India, China, Germany and Edenderry.
