About the author

John Rachel has a B. A. in Philosophy, has traveled extensively, is a songwriter and music producer, and an evolutionary humanist. He has spent his life trying to resolve the intrinsic clash between the metaphysical purity of Buddhism and the overwhelming appeal of narcissism.

He is author of nine novels, three non-fiction political books, and one creative non-fiction fantasy/travel/cookbook, as well as hundreds of articles, short stories, and poems. Currently in development is a new novel set in Africa, and an American satire on the self-help crazes of the 80s and 90s.

Author Rachel has explored or lived in thirty-four countries since leaving America August of 2006. He now lives in a quiet, traditional, rural Japanese community, where he finds infinite delight in the ringing of temple bells three times a day by monks at a local Shinto shrine. These days he is mostly immersed in good vibrations.

Update #57 - Can you handle the excitement? June 10, 2022

Live From Japan: Our New Garden

Yep! It’s that time of year again. Actually, it was that time of year again well over a month ago when we started with the plot of plowed earth pictured below.

Time to plant a new garden!

What can I say? This is fun!

And here's what our garden looks like right now.

Yes, it has a ways to go. But we're optimistic!

I know I know. This whole gardening escapade can’t compete with all that’s going on in the world . . . Ukraine, Biden’s latest gaffes, the Amber Heard/Johnny Depp trial, the shortage of baby formula, gasoline prices. But it’s not supposed to. 

Maybe that’s the whole idea, eh?

Wanna know more about what it's like living
in a traditional, rural town in Japan? 

Give it a spin! PLEASE! 

There's even a money back guarantee.

To paraphrase Groucho Marx: If you're not completely satisfied,
just return the unread portion of the book and we'll refund the
unspent portion of your money. Does it get better than that?
