Dino Hira was born and raised in Hong Kong and moved to Perth, Western Australia at age 16, on his own, to complete university studies. He started working in the mining industry in 2012, first as a dump truck operator and then transitioned to the mine controller role, which is central to the operations of a mine site. In this role, he would communicate to hundreds of people daily, while also remaining alert to all operations happening at the mine site. To do this without accumulating stress, Dino knew the importance of maintaining his inner wellbeing. His mood had the potential to affect an entire mine site, because the tone of voice over the two-way radio could be heard and felt by every person working at the mine site.
In early 2014, after a relationship breakdown and a build-up of dealing with a phase of darkness, stress, and depression, Dino faced a night of intense contemplation—did he want to take his next breath? His thoughts of his loving family back in Hong Kong compelled him to hold on for one more day, but what happened during his sleep that night changed his life forever. Dino’s possibly “one last dream” opened up a door for him. That evening, he experienced a vivid and meaningful dream and awoke to tears of emotions, an enriching feeling he had never experienced before. The entryway to his spiritual journey awaited him and he just had to walk through to begin an amazing transition that connected him to his inner self in the form of self-love.
Today, Dino’s mindset is one that embraces positivity, greater passion, purpose, and a will to maintain a sense of calmness. This is essential for having the best possible mental health and Inner Peace. His desire to help others is now a part of his daily actions and intentions. He is a qualified Reiki/Energy Healer and a Nutritional Therapist.
With Dino’s new way of life, his awareness of the importance of believing in your inner self and embracing a healthy mind has become essential to all that he does. With a connection to his heart and intuition, a beautiful story has emerged. He has been given experiences to help him reach out to more people with his important message, including being a male pageant winner, Mr. Australasia 2016, a successful international model, having starred in Australian reality television shows, volunteering time and energy to support various charity organisations, running guided mindfulness meditation workshops for groups, including those in drug and alcohol rehab centres and a maximum security prison.
One of the most important parts of Dino’s journey has been to compile all his experiences into a book titled, A Miner Who Wins Inner Peace. Through thoughtful sharing and insights to help all, Dino inspires to touch reader’s hearts and help them find the keys to improving all aspects of their life, while finding and maintaining a sense of Inner Peace.
