Growing from a country childhood, John’s natural mysticism developed into organic farming and meditation. Much later, when life fell apart, it took him through depression and years of wandering in deserts of different sorts before gradually coming to realise that all appearing to be lost on earth is spiritually found.
In old age, after asking himself what he had of most value to leave behind, he started collating the many notes made throughout his life, of special insights / experiences received. These are published as Wonders of Spiritual Unfoldment, followed by Mystic Approaches. He’s currently editing diaries and letters written during his several years in Russia, which confirm that when all else fails, the life of prayer begins. From here, he finds that poetry best serves the little left to say.
