During the occupation of Poland first by Germany and then by the Russians armies, he and his mother survived alone, his father (a military officer) having been seconded to the British army to serve as Aide de Comp to General, (later Field Marshal) Sikorski.

Both their children, Tamara and Carl, were born in London and in 1961 they returned to live in the Channel Island of Jersey where Dolores had been born.  In 1964 they both entered the Society of the Inner Light and began their training in the Western Mysteries. They were initiated together in 1968 and thereafter continued training with Revd W.E.Butler later joining him in The Helios Course. In 1970 The Helios Course became The Servants of the Light with Revd Butler as its Director of Studies. Along with Olive Ashcroft (no relation) and Tom Oloman, Michael and Dolores were founder members of the new school.

In 1976 Revd Butler retired having elected Dolores as the Director of Studies. For many years Michael cared for the general management of the SOL. Michael is a teacher and an Exorcist in his own right and for many years was the Magister of The Grand Lodge which met at Runnings Park Manor in Worcester.
