Wasyl Kolesnikov has been a national and international mind and body development teacher for over thirty years. In ‘Return To The Source’ he explained the idea of the Source, whatever label you may give it, be it i.e. God, Allah, or Universe. Also he charted his own inspiring development from meeting his first Aikido teacher, to his gradual understanding and consolidating of how to use the universal energy called the Source to improve our lives exponentially.
In Transformation he has looked at more specific aspects which the reader can focus in on, through words, pictures and poetry, to help bring about the transformative process of change to live a more fulfilled and happy life.
Wasyl Kolesnikov lives and teaches in Oldham, near Manchester where his centre Kolsenikov’s School of Mind and Body Development with Aikido (KSMBDA) and Infinite Tai Chi (as developed by Jason Chan) is based. He has clubs nationally as well as in the Ukraine and possibly soon in Canada.
Guy Gardner is a professional writer, teacher and musician. Having started his martial training initially in Judo, he became dissatisfied with the emphasis on competition and searched for another way to train.
In 2007 he achieved 1st dan, shortly after finishing the first of his and Sensei Kolesnikov’s collaborations ‘Return To The Source.’ Having worked successfully together, it was not long before another book was in the pipeline. ‘Transformation: A Spiritual Journey into Yourself,’ is their second collaboration.
Guy lives in Dorset, where he continues to spread time between training in Aikido, writing and teaching.
