In 2016, Matthew Lowes had a spiritual awakening that instantly transformed his life and perception of reality. In his book, That Which is Before You, Matthew offers direct insight into awakening. He addresses the mystery of our true nature through present experience and through a broad knowledge of traditions and practices. His teachings are universal, and are uncompromising of a truth which lies beyond all words, all thoughts, all concepts.
In addition to his spiritual work, Matthew writes fiction and games. He created the Dungeon Solitaire series of card games, which has since spawned a series of stand-alone novels. His novel, The End of All Things, is the third book in the Labyrinth of Souls fiction series, published by ShadowSpinners Press. His short stories have appeared in a variety of publications, including Dark Recesses, Anotherealm, The Lovecraft, and the ShadowSpinners anthology.
Matthew leads regular classes and workshops in martial arts, movement, and spirituality. He is head instructor of Eugene Systema and has a black belt in Aikido, with 30 years experience in martial arts. Lowes holds a B.A. in English Literature from the University of Wisconsin and an M.A. in Teaching from Pacific University. His interests range from literary theory to gothic architecture, from world religions to quantum physics, and from music to visual arts. He has traveled widely, and now lives in the Pacific Northwest, where every day he follows the inspirations for his diverse work.
