I am a former Anglican Monk , and Teacher of
Christian Mysticism .
After a transformation as a result of reading The Cloud of Unknowing , My Partner and I were asked by the Dean of Lincoln to form a Contemplative / service Religious Community . I wrote the rule , and The Community of the Living Sacrifice was born .
The Community worked with young Gay people , and we housed ex-prisoners , newly released psychiatric patients and the Homeless .
As the Community was coming to a close , I discovered Ramakrishna , Sri Ramana Maharshi and Nisargadatta Maharaj . This revitalized the spiritual search, and in 1990 a final understanding occurred, and all seeking stopped . After about ten years, I attempted to " re-write " The Rule for the Community of the Living Sacrifice in Advaitic terms .
After another decade , and a series of dreams where Nisargadatta appeared to enter the dream and indicated to me that I should share my understanding with others, I decided to start " teaching " .
