James Swartz - 'How To Attain Enlightenment' - Interview by Iain McNay

James was born in Butte, Montana in 1941 and had a very happy childhood. He left home for a military prep school in Minnesota and then spent two years in a liberal arts college before he was expelled for disciplinary reasons, and enrolled in the University of California at Berkeley in 1963. Six months short of graduation he ran off to Hawaii where he started a successful small business. But something was terribly wrong; at twenty six he had become an alcoholic a chain smoking gluttonous adulterer, and life in every respect was not worth living. One day in the Post Office in Waikiki he had a life changing epiphany that put him on the path to freedom. In this in-depth interview he talks about his life, his spiritual journey and how he found freedom and enlightenment through the Vedanta tradition. "How To Attain Enlightenment" is the title of James's new book.
