Wayne Wirs

1961 — 2017

Wayne Wirs was a spiritual teacher, writer, and photographer who lived in a van and drove around North America from one scenic spot to another. He reported that his ego was finally transcended on September 17, 2009. He was the author of several books, a blog, and numerous videos. One of the interesting things about his blog is that it includes entries from before, during, and after he awakened.

He wrote:

“What probably sets my work apart is that I focus on the mystical aspects of enlightenment — the Fullness aspects rather than the more common Emptiness aspects. I see God — which I call Her, my Beloved — in everything. I have come to realize the importance of the Soul as a stepping-stone to Mystical Oneness (enlightenment) and how synchronicity implies a Divine Intelligence.

Wayne's favorite self-portrait.

“My work is for those who are tired of the deadness and extreme cerebral aspect of today’s non-dual teachers.

“My work is for the ‘spiritual but not religious.’

“My work is for those who want to feel the Divine within themselves.

“My work is for the mystic.”

Wayne killed himself in 2017 and printed a long suicide note to the public on his blog.


Wayne has published information about his life here and here.
