Ocean Melchizedek (aka Bob Hodgson) was born in Yorkshire in the 1950s. After attending school (Bootham School, York) and Uni (University of Liverpool), he had a career in accounting and as an IT freelance contractor (SAP).
During his mid forties, the spiritual quest started in earnest - initially with Transcendental Meditation, and then various Tibetan Buddhist groups. As always there were many twists and turns, realisations, moments of awakening and the acquisition of knowledge of the major world systems. The next stage was Oneness University in India, then the I Am teachings, Shamanic path, Zen and so on. The main theme is self mastery and shadow work, assisted by many teachers, including plant teachers.
Ocean is a trustee for various not for profit charitable foundations, such as the I Am that I Am foundation, the Pool of Light Healing Trust, The Skellig Michael foundation and the recently formed One Earth Nation, which when fully funded, will be one of the key humanitarian projects for the Foundation.
Ocean is blessed with a son and daughter and two grandchildren.
