About Nick Burrin
I was born Nicholas John Burrin known as Nick Burrin in Beckenham Kent England in 1957. I am quarter Swiss-German. My father was a master printer and my mother stayed at home to look after my elder brother, sister and I.
My life is amazing, full of wonderful experiences, a very active childhood playing many different sports including rugby, football, hockey, cricket, tennis, swimming, rowing, sailing and boating in general. As a child, we spent most school holidays and weekends at our holiday home in Elmer Sands, in West Sussex. I really love the sea and beach life, it really is a wonderful place and I live near there today.
At the age of twelve, I was sent to a very strict boarding school for difficult children, not that I was naughty or difficult, but I had dyslexia and my parents felt I needed more help with my work. So they felt that this boarding school was the right place. For me, it was a matter of survival but it taught me a lot about myself, it gave me a sense of my own strengths. And being away from my parents and family meant that I grew up faster and became more responsible.
I left school at the age of seventeen and my first job was a retail management course with Debenhams in Guildford. I passed my exams and moved to London and find a job where I could progress faster.
I found a small high fashion menswear company and within 18 months, at the age of nineteen and a half, I was made manager of one of the branches and I helped the owner buy the clothes for the shops as he felt I had a good eye for up and coming fashion designs, which I really enjoyed.
After a year or so, I decided that I wanted to open a restaurant. I moved to Chichester and opened an American style restaurant, now at the age of twenty-one. It was a huge success and I sold it three years later and moved to London and teamed up with one of my friends who I had met in the school playground at the age of eight. We set up a property company, buying, selling and renovating Victorian houses. This business grew incredibly quickly and was very successful and over the next few years, we opened a specialist food company supplying food to Harrods and Selfridges. At the same time, I had a hobby helping musicians and bands record and prepare them to go on tour.
In 1988, I met an Indian lady called Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi, who taught me how to meditate, and I spent five years traveling with Shri Mataji learning first-hand about so much. In 1993, Shri Mataji told me to go off and meditate on my own, and if I did that, I would understand everything. A year later, in the summer of 1994, I had these amazing experiences and I turned these writings and recordings into my first book 'So Daisy’s Really Are Made in Heaven', which was finally published in 2010.
Also in 1994, I started working for a property development company, buying developments for them all over England, including Lancaster, Leeds, Hull, Sheffield, London, Horsham, Cornwall etc. In 1998, I moved to Elmer Sands in West Sussex and bought a house right on the beach and converted it into a New England Style home and even called it ‘New England’. This gave me the inspiration in 2001 to create a company called "New England Lifestyle" designing and making handmade white furniture until 2016.
In 2011, I published my second book, "Beyond All Doubt is Jerusalem the Golden City". "The Absolute" was also published in 2011, "Freedom" was published in 2014, "Heaven Before Life And Life Before Heaven" was published in 2015, "The Truth" was published in 2016, and "Silence" was published in 2017.
On the 20th of June 2015, I had my first historical public meeting where I talked about my Books, experiences and realisations. 2016 was a fantastic year… and I had meetings in West Sussex, England, in June, July, August, November and December. Then I held my first meeting in another country in September, and we went to St. Maxime in the South of France, which is where I went on my first foreign holiday at the age of eight. And in November we also had a meeting in Ostend, Belgium.
In 2017, we have had public meetings in January, February, March, April, May and June, July, August, September, October, November, December, in West Sussex England.
2018 has been another amazing year, with public meetings every month in England, West Sussex, and also in Strasbourg, in France. Many people came to my meetings from all over the world and some people joined online via Zoom and Skype from Russia, Germany, Austria, France, Belgium, Romania, America, Canada, Australia, India, Slovakia, England and Scotland.
In 2019, we have had public meetings in January, February, March, April, May and June, July, August, September, October, November, December, in West Sussex England.
