Dennis Murphy went through life a 97 pound weakling, afraid of his own shadow. But his life changed one summer afternoon when he experienced the power of Gravity Hill. Now living the life of a hermit friar, he tells of his life-changing moment at Gravity Hill.

“After living through that shocking experience of an earth with no gravity, I came to understand that everything else in life is small potatoes. It helped me put the rest of my fears in perspective. I then decided to devote my life to meditation about that experience.”

Friar Murphy now resides in a remote corner of Bedford County, shunning almost all social contact. He lives a simple life in quiet meditation, with no running water and no electricity.

Effective 13 February 2003
At the request of officials from the Vatican, Friar Murphy no longer does interviews regarding his experience at Gravity Hill.
