Chay Tana, now 9 years retired, is a qualified person-centred counsellor whose life quest has been dominated by his passion for understanding the nature of Consciousness - it's arising and purpose, the difference between psyche/soul and spirit, plus the nature of the spectrum of Love - and also his passion for the arts, which primarily include writing, music and digital art.
Career-wise, he's worked in various fields including printing, retail management, editing and rewriting, the theatre (once as an actor and also as a costume co-ordinator), as a festival outdoor event co-ordinator, plus as a counsellor. He plays guitar, has written many songs, has played drums in two bands; plus he's worked voluntarily as a befriender in a drop-in centre and also for a local Citizens Advice Bureau and library. He was also a full-time carer for his mother before she ascended her planetary body.
Chay Tana is author of the trilogy-length science fiction epic gnostic quest novel, "Quest of the Solar Flower", which is currently available as a single volume or as three separate volumes; though once a new edition is completed the three volume trilogy version will be taken off sale as the separate volumes rarely sell. Not being in it for the dosh - as there's little or no money in self-publishing! - he advises prospective buyers to wait for the 3rd Edition of the novel as there are at least three major changes he wants to make. His current titles are:
"Quest of the Solar Flower" (revised 2nd Edition) ~ single volume trilogy length science fiction epic gnostic quest novel.
"Quest of the Solar Flower" trilogy version (2nd Edition of each):
Volume One: "The Chalice of Love and Empathy".
Volume Two: "The Battle for Ahora".
Volume Three: "The Time of New Love" (previously titled "The Big Time").
"The Moment Is Perfect" (2nd Edition) ~ a small collection of previously published poems of love and spirit.
"Soular Souldier" ~ poems on the road to love.
"Chica del Alba" ~ poetry from the coast of love.
"Improvisation In Blue" ~ the lotusdust poems.
"Land of Auroras" ~ haikus, parahaikus and other favourite poems.
"Wonderway Agapé Om" ~ 'The Moment Is Perfect' revisited with 93 bonus items, including gnostic essays.
His Amazon Author Central page reads:
"My current planetary body manifested on the Beautiful Earth in the mid 20th Century CE. It's proved to be a very handy vehicle for my immortal consciousness. In the photograph I'd been growing it for just under two years. [Photo not shown here].
"I'm now happily retired, and having had a lifelong love affair with the Divine Feminine, I currently live in a tree house on Venus with the Goddess Sophia. Visitors are welcome, but please bring your own colouring books and crayons."
More yet to be added. ... Days later: some more may be added, but 'less is more' I need to edit it and make it half the length!
