God Dieux grew up in North Vancouver Canada. The first ten years of his life were spent totally in nature. He lived in a small forested community up the Indian Arm, called Woodlands. He would spend his free time in nature or with his father on his fish boats along the pacific coast of Canada. God always was drawn to and loved animals and people and found things like mathematics and sport fun and rewarding. His mother was a christian and his father was a man of conscious freedom who believed in authenticity and totality. He describes that he was profoundly nurtured by his mother emotionally and massively inspired by his fathers authentic lion like totality with life, relationship and his businesses.
Throughout his teen years, God took a deeper and deeper interest in religion and spirituality and eventually saved up money from his work as a fisherman to travel the globe in search of deeper experiences and realization. At the time he described that he did not know exactly what he was looking for but just had a sense of good things to come.
Eventually he settled in India for many years while studying Yoga, Advaita Vedanta, Satsang and Osho's vision of Zorba the Buddha (the new man).
After studying many different healing modalities and techniques, God began to gravitate towards those who were already awakened and were actively teaching freedom and self realization through mastery, commune, meditation and satsang (meeting with truth).
He lived years with different awakened ones throughout the spiritual communities of India, Europe, Australia, Japan and South America, digesting many different experiences and levels of awakening.
Eventually one day he realized that although he had woken up a lot and experienced profound depths of being, he was still living in a fantasy world, a spiritual fantasy world. At this time there was a deepening in God's resolve to realize his true nature and at that time he describes asking 'existence' for true real awakening, enlightenment, no matter what the cost.
A few days later God was offered a suitcase full of Marijuana in its sides, to transport to Japan and make enough money to continue his spiritual travels and adventures indefinitely for years to come. God had heard about one man who had done this years ago and had gone to prison. At the time that he had heard the story about this incarceration and the totality and Zen-ness of his time in jail he had had the thought "If I ever go there, I will surely get enlightened", because by the description given, all that the man was able to do was sit and meditate all day every day.
The next day God flew to Japan and spent the next five and a half years in a small solitary prison cell, practicing yoga, meditation, various healing techniques and surrender to life. "At the time I thought it was the hardest thing that I had ever done. I used to go every year for months of silence with one of my guru's in India. This was so much harder, but I always thought, I would not miss this for anything. It was a very unique experience and it definitely made me totally free and much more authentic. At the end of it I knew I would never suffer again, for sure, in any way. It was like I was forced to face my darkest shadow, over and over again, from ten thousand different angles. I am deeply grateful for the experience. Awakening always happens through the most unique experiences that life presents us with. I wish you love and light with yours. Truly, may all beings find freedom, in the most real ways possible." ~ God Dieux
Over the last seven years God has lived mostly in Canada and Asia with friends and family. Their creative life style has brought many new flowers into his life.
For four years God recorded a series of five albums with his band (Dieux Music). Their music is described as divine, subtle and delicious. It is also created with deep spiritual, sacred intent, meaning to create music that deepens every one that plays it, records it and experiences it.
Recently God has moved more attention to creating video and film for the music and to share his travels from the last few years in Asia and New Zealand.
Most recently God became a father to his first child, Mikhail Dieux. A whole new adventure and teaching is opening for him, his partner Satya Disha Rose and their new born son. Namaste
