John Craig a.ka. Echan Deravy has lived in Japan most of his life studying zen, martial arts, oriental medicine and language. He has been a writer, corporate consultant, film maker and public speaker, adventure tour leader, a bilingual remote viewing instructor, interpreter, translator, acupuncturist and television commentator.
A lifetime in a foreign milieu can bestow many blessings even as it demands much sacrifice. Nothing is familiar. Everything is alien. Every immigrant knows this as well as any budding entrepreneur. You start by sweeping the floor and cleaning the walls if you want to seriously learn in Japan..you become a deshi, an apprentice who is a disciple too.
As his alter ego Echan Deravy in Japan John has earned the trust and the support of a significant number of people as his lectures and talk shows have been presented to the entire nation. In Japan nobody really takes you seriously until you have been at your art or business for a several decades. Why ? Because they know that only long experience prepares you to be trustworthy..
