Shaun Tomson and Noah benShea Release a New Book
As COVID affected our lives, it seemed as though the average individual’s mental health started to change for the worse. Feelings of disappointment, confusion and anger started to arise. According to the World Health Organization, “Global prevalence of anxiety and depression increased by a massive 25%”. Legendary world champion surfer, Shaun Tomson, is no stranger to depression. After losing his son, Tomson walked the bitter road of loss and crossed from darkness into the light. The Surfer and the Sage addresses the eighteen relentless, breaking waves of life, from loss and aging to relationships and depression, and guides you to transformation. While this book cannot provide clinical help, it can provide spiritual guidance and inspirational hope. International bestselling poet-philosopher, Noah BenShea, provides insight on a path of purpose, hope, and faith. It is not a list of rules to follow that guarantee success, health, or wealth, but rather a collection of advice from two guides who have traveled far and wide and suffered deeply, but still look forward to tomorrow with hope and faith.

—Carissa Moore, surfing Olympic gold medallist and five-time world champion
“A charming program for connecting people to their “true purpose.” Open-minded surfers will want to catch this wave.”
