Born in 1940 in Budapest, Hungary, Imre Vallyon emigrated to New Zealand at the age of sixteen. After having many mystical experiences and inner revelations throughout his childhood, he thereafter dedicated his life to teaching the Wisdom Science through his writings and through workshops and retreats held around the world. Imre’s extraordinary knowledge of human spirituality is neither derived from scholarly research nor channelled from the psychic dimensions. Imre’s work is one of synthesis. His writing is universal, not biased towards any particular religion or tradition. Imre Vallyon’s four-volume treatise Heavens & Hells of the Mind was awarded first place in the prestigious Ashton Wylie Charitable Trust Awards, and won a gold medal in the Living Now Awards. Heavens & Hells of the Mind and The Art of Meditation were selected by the New Zealand Society of Authors to represent New Zealand as Guest of Honour at the 2012 International Book Fair in Frankfurt.
