Welcome! I am a contemporary spirituality mentor, mindfulness teacher, composer and musician.

Are you looking for an understanding of spirituality and spiritual practice that fits your modern, rational worldview? Maybe you’ve got a lot from secular Mindfulness and you’d like to go deeper, but still within a contemporary framework? Or maybe you have a spiritual practice within an existing tradition – Buddhist, Christian, or other – and are interested in a modern rational-scientific understanding which would clarify and enhance that practice?

I am offering a powerful 12 week online mentoring programme, Human Spirituality, which gives you a simple, clear, contemporary understanding of the theory and practice of meditation. Click here for more information, or get in touch if you’d like a chat about it.

The world premiere of my inspirational new sacred choral work for our times, Blue Pearl: A One World Oratorio, took place on 14.05.22. The text is by Ken Wilber, Thich Nhat Hanh and myself; I composed the music. The audience response was rapturous! Watch the beautiful HD film of the concert on YouTube here. And there is a short video with excerpts and people’s reaction to the concert here. Please get in touch if your choir would like to perform some or all of Blue Pearl.

"A superb, exhilarating, magical piece of music."

“A spiritual, and at times, hymnal encounter. A glorious achievement.” – Carol Grimes, jazz singer, choir director

“What an achievement! I found it very moving and hopeful. This is the world we want to bring into being.” – Hilary Norton, choir director

“What an amazing experience, to listen to your Oratorio last night!! It was constantly sending ecstatic thrills through my body and mind.” – Malcolm Giles

“Just wanted to say how touched I was by the piece –  the words and the music. I loved the light touch and the wonderfully eclectic choice of styles and humour throughout. It’s wonderful to have had the space to sit and contemplate life and each fragile moment as the music unfolded.” – Neyire Ashworth, clarinetist
