The Adventures of John Salad

The debut title from young philosopher Tarquin Namaste. Written in a ‘flash’ of seven weeks in late 2013, during an experience that subsequently changed his life and compelled him to write about his journey of spiritual metamorphosis.

Tarquin Namaste is an English writer and musician born in the northern town of Blackburn, located in the county of Lancashire. His home town of Accrington in the borough of Hyndburn and former heart of traditional textile manufacturing, now represents a repressed socio-typical working-class narrative, firmly imprinted into its culture. The end of an era in manufacturing and industry prevalent in the final decades of the twentieth century, left the town forever stripped of tradition and heritage. Now in the new millennium it contends for government subsidies with bordering towns including notably, Burnley and Blackburn. Intrinsic to the northern culture and its ‘left behind’ status, music with its contentious lyrics continues to play an important role. Tarquin subsequently grew up with this inherited wave of musical consciousness. Fascinated with the subliminal messages of modern music, prompted him to study the art form at college. Later as a student at Salford University (Manchester England) he studied music and musical theory. This included research on the principle sociological elements marked by earlier folk traditions of the 1700’s through to modern-day genres.

As a graduate of Salford University (BA Hons) in Popular Musicology he became interested in the Indie culture and a ‘branch off’ known as the post-punk revival. From the latter of these and prominent between the years 2000 and 2006 emerged Bloc Party, The Strokes, Franz Ferdinand, Interpol and Artic Monkeys. These influences led to the formation of his own band Moral Panic (2009 – 2013) and features in the Adventures of John Salad. In recent times Tarquin has gained significant interest in the genre known as frequencies; in particular the advent of 432Hz. “This is where I now see music to be heading within the alternative scenes, and even popular music, (all recorded and processed at 440Hz) which is being converted into this more natural frequency by ‘enlightened’ fans around the world.”

Books that have left an indelible impression upon him are ‘The Celestine Prophecy’ written by James Redfield and ‘Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance,’ the latter also featuring in the Adventures of John Salad. A book written from beginning to end in seven weeks while ‘taken-over’ by the higher forces of sheer illumination.

“With its magnificent magnitude of thought and deep insight, John Salad has opened the sacred door for others to walk through, so that they too can truly know the infinite.

The voice of failings, ignorance and constant periods of doubt and despair are not hidden or glossed over. This dynamic emerges through twists and turns where waves of sublime honesty work powerfully in charting the rhythmic balance of hopelessness and ecstasy that John experiences.

A journey that brings all minds to the one universal whole. A universal place where just being is really living.”

The Adventures of John Salad

tnbcAs an advocate of truth, Tarquin narrates explicitly the negative and positive insights principal character John Salad experiences in order to achieve his current state of balance, creativity and contentment. However ambiguous the ties appear between narrator and protagonist, Tarquin reveals an uncanny insight into the life of John Salad.

Tarquin himself is nothing but an honest bard, like Homer; sharing with us the odyssey that John Salad undertakes, in obtaining the unity of body and mind and, ultimately the unity of us all. So eradicate your suspicions to the reality of John’s voyage and unearth the secrets.  Open your soul to his message and surrender your mind to his intuitions. Alike to the way he opened his, in sharing his own encouraging message of progression and serenity. For trapped in his own body and mind, John Salad was ravaged by immense self-doubt. With incredible discoveries, faith, love and light he emancipated himself from the norms which shackle us all. By tapping into the real truth and disregarding societal pressures, John emerges as an enlightened being; willing to share his secret of spiritual progression with all of us. It all begins at the tree of life, the very tree he would have taken his mortal life from. The very tree of life which was the platform to an initiation of a dawn of new beginnings and existence. Connect with his story and that of a true narrator desiring no bias, where nothing is left unturned or unexplored. For as the narrator would argue – are we not all one? – linked as a spider’s web in the silk of life? Learn, and climb over the bridge of knowledge, love and understanding that binds us all together. Follow his journey, feel his infinite love and trust his words.

James Redfield is the author of The Celestine Prophecy series of booJamesRedfieldks. He grew up in Birmingham, Alabama during the tumultuous civil rights efforts there, and has pursued an interest in social reform,  the Human Potential Movement, and Consciousness Studies throughout his life.  His first book, the Celestine Prophecy was a runaway international best seller, published in over thirty-four countries and remaining on the New York Times Bestseller’s list for over 3 years, becoming the Best Selling book in the world for two years — evidence, James suggests, of the world-wide hunger for experientially based spiritual consciousness.  His subsequent books include The Tenth Insight, The Secret of Shambhala, The Celestine Vision, and God and the Evolving Universe — the latter of which was written with Michael Murphy and Sylvia Timbers.  In 2006, he was involved in the writing and production of The Celestine Prophecy Movie, released by Sony Pictures.   He frequently speaks  internationally on the direct link between mindfulness practice and higher spiritual consciousness — pointing to the experiences of Intuition, Synchronicity, and destiny  Awareness as pathways to an enlightened social transformation.  He has been awarded the prestigious Metal of the Presidency of the Italian Senate and the Humanitarian of the Year award from the International New Thought Alliance. His latest novel, The Twelfth Insight was published in 2011.

June 11, 2012 Author Susan Liberty Hall “Scented Adventures of the Bouquet Sisters in Fairyland”

Listen to Program. June 11, 2012 Author Susan Liberty Hall. Susan Liberty Hall loves All Divine Creation. She is a patriot who also loves America and believes that our country is a God-Inspired Democracy that must be preserved and protected as such. Through devotion to her own spiritual growth, good deeds and prayer, Susan has touched the lives of countless numbers of people, helping them improve their health and their emotional and spiritual well-being. Susan was born in Los Angeles, California on May 28, 1945. When she was only three months old, her family relocated to Kemmerer, Wyoming, a small coal mining town in the southwestern corner of the state. Susan, her three brothers and parents moved into a condemned building in “Drunkard’s Alley” in the center of town above her father’s plumbing shop. Susan’s bed was the couch in the front room and her clothes closet was a toy chest. At age seven, she became a working member of the household, selling “chances to win” one of her mother Jessie’s crocheted pillowcases. She also went from house to house selling greeting cards and children’s records. At age nine, Susan started working in her father’s plumbing shop on Saturdays. It was a very difficult life. From the time she was a little girl, Susan always loved nature—trees, grass and flowers—and she tried desperately to make something, anything grow in Drunkard’s Alley. She was always bringing home stray animals, caring for them and giving them the love that she craved herself. Although Susan’s education ended with high school graduation, she has always been an avid student of life, eagerly learning from a vast number of experiences worthy of several advanced degrees from the world’s most esteemed educational institutions. Susan is a person of wisdom, discernment, keen perception and above all, a listener and a doer. She has learned to “walk her talk,” and understands how critically important it is that we act now to provide a safe environment for future generations. As a grandmother, Susan considers herself “ordinary,” but any observer would contest this. She is nothing short of an angel in human embodiment. The goal of the book is to provide simple solutions for complex problems. Some of Susan’s solutions are: tithing, introducing our children to the many professions that can show them how to live in harmony with nature, and teaching them how to implement the basic rules of health. It is Susan’s prayer that as both children and adults read and speak the prayers and Holy Words of this book, miracles will happen. Writes Susan: “If I can inspire or encourage just one child, then my work will have counted.”
