Hi - the below info is all about me……. my name is Phillip Cox

aka Swami Leelanand (Osho Sunyassin Name)

Born in Western Queensland Outback in 1949, got out of Town as soon as possinle and been

travelling one way or another ever since.

Career path was as a top Livestock and Propery Auctioneer leading to Senior Corporate Roles with

large Australian Companes who specialized in these fields.

Quit that world in 1995 and travelled Australia in and old Kombi Van and really started living.

After discovering OSHO in India in 2010 and receiving intense instruction from a wonderful Hindu

Tarot Teacher I began doing Tarot Readings. It took off immediately and I did 700 readings in the

first two Summers, part time from my Tarot Mobile in Russell in the Bay of Islands. Since then I

have read extensively from a 7 night a week Stall in the Cairns Night Markets, my amazing Tarot

Hut at the Kawai Purapura Retreat Center in Albany and more recently travelling New Zealand with

another Fair Group.

Currenly I travel in “Zenadu”, my goodo old Mazda E2200 Van that sports some great Buddha and

Monk murals all over it and creates amazing friend making opportunities wherever I pull up. My

readings are mostly done from the Van.

All in all I am getting up close to 3000 Readings. All of which have been done on the basis that if

you do not find the Reading to be a life changing experience for you then is is free. To date only 8

people have chosen not to pay. My readings do not involve clairvoyancy or future predictions in any

way and as such are somewhat different from the traditional Tarot. They are about identifying your

life path, discovering where you currenly are in relation to it, getting you back on course if

necessary and providing you with a game plan to follow for the rest of your days. The objective is

to achieve a life that provides total happiness. The readings have changed a huge percentage of

peoples lives.

For some reason which I can only guess at they just happen to be amazingly accurate. I see my role

as simply someone who can follow the cards but it is the actual cards that do all the work,

When not travelling I live in a delightful old Caravan in the bush at a Buddhist Monastry in

Kerikeri. I am heavily involved in mindfullness and meditation and working side by side with the

Monks to make the beautiful place even more beautiful.

I am a keen and enthusiastic and dare I say reasonably talented songwriter and enjoy performing a

good balance of cover music with my old guitar. I currenly do some Gigs for the Retirement Village
