My Influences

I have a diverse range of professional and personal influences including; religious and spiritual leaders, psychologists, sociologists, educators, social change and human rights activists, great writers and texts. As well as those I have received direct teachings and training. These lists are works in progress, I will add to them over time. I am sure I have forgotten many!
