He has been surfing since he was a young boy in the 70’s, learning on the beaches of the far south coast of NSW, on the borrowed single fins of his best friends. 
Surfing has always been an integral part of Nathan’s physical and above all mental health. So on any given day you may see him around Cronulla smiling and loving the opportunity to be in the water, especially when it gets overhead on the various reefs that abound in Bate Bay. When he gets the opportunity he takes off overseas to hit the waves of the world. When he gets out of the water he has to go to work too, if you can call it work.

It wasn’t until he was given a copy of Master Chia’s “Awaken Healing Light” that he started to delve into the spiritual and energy work practices of the Tao.

Nathan has been practicing the UHT system now for 12 years and attributes these practices to getting him through some of the most difficult personal and emotional times of his life. The practices have also allowed him to develop a greater connection with himself, allowing for personal development in ways that he could not have imagined possible.

It is for this reason that Nathan has included the Universal Healing Tao System as an integral part of his philosophy for health and well being, and now enjoys passing these practices on to others so that they too may benefit.

Combining his three passions into one at Tao de Libertad,  Nathan offers a retreat experience like no other in the world.
