My name is Jan Stone and I’m a writer and freelance educator based in Glastonbury, England.
My journey through life has been driven by two major passions.
The first was an abiding desire (inspired initially, I think, by Douglas Adam’s Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy!) to understand the purpose of life – why we’re here, what we’re supposed to be doing now we are, and so forth. Neither religion nor science provided a satisfactory answer, so I began to look elsewhere.
That led to my second passion – a deep fascination with the intuition, understanding and ideas of a growing number of very special young people, who are variously called indigo, new energy or (by those who want to maintain the status quo) disordered. They appeared to understand life in ways I didn’t and I have spent many years listening and learning from them, and continue to do so.
In 2012 I published the book that had been forming itself from the combination of these twin obsessions for many years. It’s called Life: A Player’s Guide and it’s available as a paperback or Kindle book.
The book sets out my take on life, my answers to my own questions and I’m happy to say that others are beginning to discover it and find inspiration there too.
My blog posts reiterate, expand upon and meander around the edges of themes from the book and a few other things. ‘Life’, after all, is a fairly broad canvas. You are warmly invited to join my explorations and musings and to share your responses.
