John Stewart_Speaker at the HEALING SUMMIT 2016, organized by Healing Hotels of the WorldJohn, founder and chairman of Kamalaya Koh Samui, was introduced to Asian philosophy and spirituality at the age of 15. Intrigued and eager to experience more than his comfortable western existence could offer, he left home at age 16. After seven years in North America and Europe, he arrived in the jungles of northern India, somewhat doubtful and anxious about what lay ahead. His yogi master greeted him with a slap in the face and a question; “what took you so long?” With that greeting, all anxiety and doubt slipped from John’s mind. John’s defining view of business is a medium of cultural exchange, worthy only of projects that ‘make a difference’. Kamalaya unfolds from a learned truth – that happiness comes from giving – and combines John’s wish to both communicate spiritual teachings in a way that is easily understood, and share with others the healing power of nature and the joy of community.
