Born in England in 1937, Michael Roads discovered at an early age he was able to communicate with nature and go beyond linear time and space. He immigrated to Australia in 1963 where he was a beef and dairy farmer, and prominent in the early organic movement. He wrote the first book on organic gardening in Australia, which was an immediate best seller. After a spiritual awakening in 1986, Michael wrote about his metaphysical experiences and has since published 14 books, and travels the world giving talks and 5-day ‘intensives’ on unconditional love and emotional balance.
