About Daskalos (teacher) Christopher L. Murphy
A strong proponent of Platonic philosophy and mysticism throughout his life, Chris is an energetic and dedicated teacher who has had the good merit of receiving spiritual training at the hands of Taoist, Buddhist, Sufi, and Yogic masters over the years. Having seen thousands of people practicing hundreds of methods, but only a few ever achieving any success, he realized that many students and teachers were so fixated on spiritual exercises and techniques that the actual way of life that leads to realization was being quickly forgotten. It is his hope that he can wake people out of the stupor of the money-market spirituality of endless techniques and show them the value of a trained mind and a virtuous life to lay the foundations of their spiritual path. He has no desire to be anyone’s guru or spiritual leader, but instead simply wishes to help empower the individual to train the mind how to think, instead of what to think - at which point each seeker can determine for their self the worth of the various paths and traditions.
