Alan Mann

New South Wales, Australia.

I used to work in the timber and wood preservation industries.   My emphasis is on the work of the British philosopher Douglas Harding and others whose teaching and writing concern our first nature.  I am also particularly interested in the mystical English poet, clergyman, theologian and religious writer Thomas Traherne  (1636-1674). Reference to the complementary work of Bohm, Wren-Lewis and Harding is included in his website at www.capacitie.org.  For the past 20 years Alan and his wife Margot have held monthly meetings at their Sydney home.  Based on the principles of Bohmian Dialogue, they have provided a forum for exploration of spiritual, philosophical, scientific and religious enquiry. A periodic e-magazine, The NOWletter,  posted towww.traherne.org is an extension of  this group activity.
