I don’t know what is the bigger crime, to lock up a beautiful free bird of paradise in a cage or to convince the bird that the cage exists!

Hello, my name is Ryan Doherty.

In 2006 I was a relatively happy Marketing Manager. However my life turned upside down over night. On the recommendation of a specialist I took a tablet that was supposed to slow down my hair loss. But I week later I realised that I had lost my libido and ability to get an erection. About a month later I was made redundant from what was then my dream job. Shortly after this an energy healer who I went to healing for started to psychically attack me. This plunged me into the depths of darkness and depression for over four years, spending thousands of pounds on healers and counselors I had virtually given up all hope of turning my life around. But my life began to change when I decided to focus only on the light, be open to the possibility that all this had happened for a reason and reached out to help others  in need. So I decided to leave my qualifications and career in marketing behind to start volunteering for a homeless charity called Homeplus.

Five years on my life has been totally transformed.  I now run the charities busy Drop-In Centre for refugees, asylum seekers and destitute migrants, which helps over four hundred people from over 30 different countries each year. I recently performed in a Theatre of Witness play called Sanctuary which toured around N. Ireland, telling my journey from deep darkness and depression to having my life transformed by helping others. A short documentary was also made about the performer’s journey and stories.

Through my desire to free myself from the darkness and depression which became my home for over four years, along with my search to find, live and speak my truth and inspire others to do likewise. I embarked on the journey of writing a book, along the way found my truth and realised we are all already free.

We all long for more freedom in some area of our lives. But very few of us believe we can truly find or deserve it. I help people to experience and remember that they are already free. Our true nature is boundless, formless and infinite, like space without beginning or end, over the last five years I have learned how to remind others how to experience this true nature that is beyond all words and concepts.

I am a Journey practitioner and an advanced theta healer who meditates daily.  I have recently completed a Year of Miracles program with Marci Shimoff and Debra Poneman. I have trained in Jennifer Millar’s Cellular Transformation and Burt Golman’s Quantum Jumping, as well as working with countless healers and visionaries from around the world. I have brought myself back from the depths of darkness and depression to remember that no matter what You Are Already Free. I’m also a massive Liverpool FC fan who lives in Belfast, N. Ireland and I absolutely love to dance.
