Ron Farmer was born in Australia, graduating from the University of Queensland with first class Honours followed by a Ph.D in Psychology. After a year at the Menninger Foundation in Topeka, Kansas, Ron played a leading
role in bringing Behaviour Therapy to Australia.
At the peak of his professional career as a lecturer at the University of New South Wales, Ron suffered a catastrophic nervous breakdown which was to set the course for his future life and work
Recognising that present-day psychology had little to offer those who were suffering, Ron began developing new procedures which were more effective. These approaches proved so popular that requests for help outpaced his personal availability.
Ron's wife, Suwanti, grew up in Indonesia before training in Germany and United Kingdom as a clinical psychologist. With their common interest in the teachings of the ancient spiritual masters, they began refining
Ron's therapeutic approaches by blending more 'soul' into them. The results were truly astounding.
