Dr. Lawrence Blair (Bali, Indonesia)
Dr. Blair is the writer, presenter and co-producer (with his late brother) of the internationally acclaimed TV adventure series Ring of Fire, which won two EMMY awards. Its companion book, Ring of Fire, chronicles his and his brother’s astonishing ten years of exploring Indonesia, which included such real life adventures as sailing with gypsy pirates, visiting man-eating animals and men, and standing next to erupting volcanoes. His entire life has been extraordinary; as a diver in Mexico and Indonesia, a fisherman in Alaska, an actor, a model, a photographer and an interpreter. Lawrence Blair earned his doctorate at Lancaster University, England. His thesis, which defined the field of Psycho-Anthropology, was subsequently published as Rhythms of Vision: The Changing Patterns of Belief, now in its sixth edition.
