John has been a student of the Diamond Approach since 1998. He graduated in Chemistry and in Physics at Edinburgh University and has worked as a nuclear physicist and as an entrepreneurial manager of IT consultants. He has been involved in various spiritual paths including Tibetan Buddhist, Persian Sufi and Fourth Way schools. He recognised his path to be the Diamond Approach after reading “Essence & the Elixir of Enlightenment”. What he appreciates most in his work as a Diamond Approach teacher is supporting students to explore their own, unique deeper reality. John lives both in the Netherlands and in Ireland enjoying the contrast of two very different cultures and landscapes.
