    Christos Spent His Childhood Around the Beach

    His childhood went by the Gold Coast. What’s more, he had taken surfing lessons ever since his young teens and he would always end up spending most of his time on the beach.

    How Did Christos Became a Monk?

    Christos was somewhat of a troubled teenager himself so he had questions about life ever since his teenage years. Questions like, “What else could one do with this human life? What is our true purpose and potential” were always in his mind.

    So, he began frantically looking in his hometown for answers and in his expedition, he found a psychologist who used to teach meditation and directed her to start learning Qi Gong from someone much more experienced.

    Being fed up wanting to know more, he traveled around and lived like an ordained Buddhist monk. Christos used to practice Tibetan Buddhism with an old monk and used to live with him.

    Christos Dorje Walker’s Journey of Understanding His Life

    While living as a monk and practicing the culture, he picked up the name Dorje. Even though he lived most of his growing life practicing being a monk, he realized in about 5 years that he was not cut out to be a monk.

    Christos studied Somatic Psychotherapy

    After coming back home to Australia, he studied various forms of bodywork and eventually went on to Somatic Psychotherapy. For him, the only people he wanted to learn from were those who had more knowledge about this world than he did and that’s what he started to explore.

    One thing led to another and now he has been constantly looking for new answers for almost 20 years. All those years of practice have shown him many beautiful things from Asian culture that have been hidden from the modern world.
