Following many years of spiritual enquiry and practice, I was trained by the OneSpirit Interfaith Seminary see www.interfaithfoundation.org. Interfaith Ministers are from all walks of life: men and women who have undergone an intense period of study, and completed a rigorous and full curriculum covering the main religions and spiritual traditions, ceremony, ritual and counselling skills leading to ordination.
I consider myself to be a reliable, creative and friendly person, passionate and caring about the work I do.
My personal life practice is integral; inclusive and accepting of all, through meditation and mindfulness. Peacefully at one with the flow of nature, I have been blessed by a deep personal experience of the highs and lows of the cycle of life and the awakening this has brought to me. I feel this adds grounded depth, compassion and empathy to my work as a minister.
I do other work as a Mindfulness Teacher, Reiki Practitioner and Parenting Trainer and also volunteer as a chaplain at a local hospital.
I also offer some of my time for small charities and voluntarily for a national bereavement helpline.
When relaxing I can often be found walking in New Forest or on the coastal path and beaches of Dorset with my wife Ann or spending time with our children.
