My name is Annabel Ruffell and I am the founder of Journey for Earth, a global awareness company committed to inspiring change for humanity, the environment and animals, one choice at a time.
I read an article that Tom had written on MindBodyGreen: “Why I don’t drink alcohol and how to cut back on booze without being a hermit.” I then went to his website and was inspired by his journey of self empowerment, creating peace in his own life, reducing stress and his mission to inspire others that they too have the ability to transform their life and truly find peace.
Tom spent 26 years as a broker in finance trading inflation swaps and bonds for the banks. He recently walked away from the industry at the height of his career to fulfill his mission of spreading calm and stillness across the globe.
He discovered meditation in the early stages of his career in finance as a tool for stress management. Tom’s experiences through the meditation were not only immediate but very profound. He explored deeper and deeper into the realms of his meditation practice and after studying advanced courses in Bali, India and Australia, he qualified as a Meditation Teacher.
When Tom isn’t with his family, writing, teaching meditation or travelling the globe on his mission, he can be found riding his longboard along the east coast of Australia, in the crowd at a music festival or on his yoga mat in some twisted position all the while exuding radiant bliss and calm.
