Sex, Drugs and a Buddhist Monk

A stepping stone towards a silent mind.


Sex, Drugs, and a Buddhist Monk is a memoir. It tells the story of a fateful (and nearly fatal) trip to Thailand, which started in debauchery but ended in enlightenment.
A severely obese, depressed, anxious alcoholic and drug abuser, Luke Kennedy was trying to get his life together and reset his life, but he ventured over to Thailand for one last hurrah. He partied hard, overdid it, and his path collided with prostitutes, drug dealers, and violence. This story is an action-packed story of a fight to escape violence and deal with a Monk that forced him to confront his demons.

About the author

Luke Kennedy

Luke S. Kennedy is one of Australia's most sought after public speakers. He uses his personal story to inspire deep, lasting change, and self-awareness, for a wide range of audiences, from primary schools, high schools, businesses, events, and even prisons.
For eight years of his life, Luke was an obese alcoholic and drug addicted thug. Leading a violent street fighting crew, he was stabbed on two separate occasions; once in the lung, the other time in the head. On the outside, he looked strong and confident, even happy at times, but on the inside his thoughts would haunt him. He was incredibly scared, depressed, anxious, paranoid, and was obsessed with what others thought about him.
After losing 50 kilos, Luke turned his life around through the disciplines of sport (state champion boxer), business, and a constant desire to progress in every area of life; spiritually, emotionally, mentally, and physically. Luke's now a motivational speaker, author, mental health advocate, and mentor to troubled youth.
