I am originally from Manchester. I continue to embrace northern attitudes of generosity, warmth and being grounded.
At some point frustrated at playing with shadows converted from an Anglican to Catholicism. Not content to live as a single gay man took another step and became a Benedictine monk at Downside Abbey (phone number hidden)).
Having 'jumped over the wall', arrived in London and trained as a Secondary School teacher focusing on RE and Philosophy. For the last 14 years taught locally in Hackney known as one of the most deprived boroughs in England. However, it was conscious decision to remain in that environment rather than the safe, cosy and privileged world of Downside. I hoped to inspire students to think outside the box in spite of the some who thought it a bad idea. I taught the good, gangsters, the murdered and the murderers. Having taught for 24 years took early retirement summer 2015.
I'm now looking to travel, and find my third incarnation in a creative way. Today live in a way which is reflective and edge forward trying to live a genuine life knitted together with a vision which is spiritual, grounded and creative.
I know live in Arles and looking forward to the next stage of my journey . Looking to see how it is possible to make the world a better place. ( ideas already in process).
