Andrew helped set up and then run Gaia House Buddhist Retreat Centre near Newton Abbot, and Dharmagiri Buddhist Hermitage in the Drakensberg Mountains of KwaZulu Natal in South Africa. He spent 8 years as a Student of Process Oriented Psychology, and has been practicing Tai Chi for over 20 years.
In December 2011 he completed a 2-year training journey into the teachings of the Delicate Lodge with his teacher White Eagle. This course, known as the Council Guide Training, offered tools, concepts, practices and protocols that aim to awaken the deepest sense of who you are order to evoke inner and outer leadership.
More recently, Andrew has embarked on a 7-year Peacekeeper Training with the Venerable Dhyani Ywahoo, who is the holder of the Ywahoo-lineage in 27th generation of the Tsalagi(Cherokee)-nation, and chief of the Green Mountain Ani Yunwiwa.
