    I have been a lifelong experiencer of psi phenomena, which led me into esoteric philosophy when I was 16 – and that was a long time ago now. I trained in the Western Mystery Tradition and then in Wicca. I have qualifications in Social Ecology. My primary interest is in the challenges of transitioning from materialistic thinking to animistic thought. I describe myself as an ‘aspirational animist’, meaning I want to be animistic, but I am still infected with materialist conditioning. I am also trying to reimagine religion as a rational response to an existential awareness that reality is living. In my day job I am a state bureaucrat with, most recently, 17 years in disability. But that’s just about to end. Don’t know what’s next.
