More About the Author
Karel Hlobil was born on September, 11, 1951 (Virgo). He grew up in small province of Moravia, today Czech Republic. He began taking knowledge from his early childhood from his first teachers: his parents and grandparents were his first influences on the direction that he took.
He is married and has three children and four grandchildren. His parents were Czechoslovak-Austrian heritage.
Since a child, he was fond of reading and he loved to listen to old stories from the elders. He grew up in quite a rural area in Moravia, where he also finished high school. The rural peasantry into which he was born virtually vanished during his teenage life. He moved from rural to urban life, closer to the modern world, when he selected his technical path of study--mechanical engineering--in Prague.
After marriage, he decided with his wife, Marie, to leave his ancestral homeland, and he escaped with his family to Austria, where he lived for two years, and from there, he immigrated to Canada in March 1989, where Toronto become his new home.
About the same time, allured by the beauty of the natural world that Canada offered him, he began an ever-deepening exploration of the unknown, described in one of his books.
Life adventure and fascination brought him to explore high dimensions and the purpose of things around him. Karel often emphasized the need for learning about the "I am," with a formulation: "Just be who you like to be," true awareness. For many years he has been studying energy fields, alternative medicine, healing, and the relationship between the mind, body, and spirit.
His belief is that we always can go farther into thinking and use it as a tool for spiritual development. "It doesn't matter how we start our quest, but what matters is to start and get there."
A life-changing awakening experience brought his own search for liberation, which he describes in his first book Transformation and Healing by Ayahuasca Spirit in the Amazonian Rainforest. His books reflect on his personal life experiences.
There is an old saying: "You cannot achieve knowledge until you empty your cup to allow new knowledge to enter. Until you do this, the knowledge remains hidden."
