Wonders of Spiritual Unfoldment

John Butler

This week we continue our conversation with John Butler, 84 year old YouTube sensation and author of Wonders of Spiritual Unfoldment.

In this conversation, we explore the experiences he writes about in the first part of Wonders. We explore his relationship with nature, his time as one of the first organic farmers in the 1960s and collaborated with people like EF Schumacher, author of Small is Beautiful and Lady Balfour, co-founder of the Soil Association.

We also get into how he sees his spiritual work as an evolution of his farming work.

This conversation follows on from our meet the author interview that took place in his favourite church in Bakewell. To continue we made our way to the top of John’s favourite hill just outside Bakewell. This gave us some wind and insect noise so apologies in advance for that. The place has held a special meaning for john since he was a boy so I begin the interview by asking where he’s taken us and what the place means to him.
