'The man who drove with his eyes closed' is a magnificent journey through the people who have taught and influenced Stephen Russell - better known as the Barefoot Doctor.
The Barefoot Doctor is a healer, a coach, a writer, a martial arts and meditation teacher, and a public speaker among many other things.
He has written several books that aim to transmit the teachings of the Tao in easy, understandable ways - so that we can lead a much more stress-free and successful life.
Having met him in person, I can tell you that he transmits a serenity and centeredness that ground you immediately.
I found always present in him the wisdom that he shares in his books, and his deep care and love for mankind shines through.
The Barefoot Doctor helps many people to create a better experience of their own lives in many different ways. However, as he states in 'The man who drove with his eyes closed', that wouldn't have been possible were it not for the great teachers he had.
This book is a journey of his life through the people who most influenced him. A very entertaining read, the book goes through characters such as R.D. Laing, Geronimo's grandson, Ram Dass, or Psycho Dan.
Throughout the pages of this book you'll also find insights, tips and techniques to help you live a more harmonious life - such as the best way to deal with difficult times, or specific ways to help energy flow through your body.
I enjoyed reading 'The man who drove with his eyes closed' - it is such a privileged window into the people and experiences who shaped the compassionate teacher that the Barefoot Doctor is.
