    Curious Times - Nick Fox, Spiritual Guide

    in Spirituality

    Nick Fox incarnated onto this planet 23 years ago, with the main purpose of helping people, no matter who they are, or where they come from. Growing up in Sydney Australia, his research and discovery into all things spiritual, has lead him down a path of knowledge and understanding, giving him a remarkable awareness and trust in his play as a guide and teacher. Let’s just say he’s dived down the rabbit hole many times, giving him a wide-ranging and in depth understanding of this world and the many others out there.


    Nick does not consider himself a master or someone to look up too, just another human being, playing, exploring and discovering on this planet. He sees all life as perfect and equal, and he always reminds everyone he connects with that life is about having fun!


    Through his writing, readings, crystal products, videos and his soon to be airing radio show, he spreads love, joy, and bliss with all, reminding everyone of the importance of being playful.
