A BRIEF BIO
Born in Buckinghamshire, England, Paul enjoyed periods of life in Bath, Nottingham, Portsmouth and London. As a youth he commuted for a 10-year period between the UK and Canada, later settling in Australia. His travels have included horse trekking in the depths of the Grand Canyon and the heights of the Himalayas, swimming in the Amazon, parachuting in Australia, and surviving a charging rhinoceros in Zambia – along with more peaceful pilgrimages to Egypt, Zimbabwe, France, Portugal, Spain, Italy, Greece, Turkey, Germany, Switzerland, Belgium, Singapore, New Zealand and Kashmir.
Paul’s studies in languages, linguistics and theology took him to the University of Bath, England, the Machiavelli Institute in Florence, Italy, St John’s College and the University of Nottingham in the UK and to Brazil’s Instituto Pastoral Regional in Belem, Amazonia.
In the ’80’s,’90’s & early ’00s Paul’s work centred on establishing foundations for new faith communities, being instrumental in planting six new churches. Since the late ’90s Paul has designed and delivered training for pastors of churches in the UK, Korea, West Africa and Australia. In Australia Paul has delivered courses on the History of Christian Thought and Biblical Hermeneutics (principles of interpreting texts) and has served as a “community-doctor” in Intentional Interim ministry and as an Archdeacon in the Anglican Church in Australia.
Paul’s books draw on diverse sources to explore the realm of spirituality and mysticism, probing the world mythology and ancestral narratives for their insights into human origins and the releasing of our potential for a more conscious, more awake and better human experience.
