Publications & public engagement activities
before moving to Higher Education and its focus on public engagement I have
always felt at home networking and sharing my ideas with individuals and
groups from all walks of life. As an engineer (my first career) I fully
appreciated that research, experience and knowledge is of little value
unless it is communicated, in whatever form is appropriate, with those who
might benefit from it. Just as importantly, such sharing is a two-way activity:
it is through the exchange of theories and practices that new insights
are gained and ideas refined. This is particularly the case on topics related
to OneReality and transcendence: unless hypotheses and techniques are fully
consistent with the experience of individuals and groups from a broad spectrum
of human endevour, they cannot be considered as representative of OneReality.
page lists books, papers, presentations and other public engagement
that I have written or given over the years. It is in reverse
chronological order and split into sections corresponding to the phases
of my working life. Whilst the items included in each phase (see my background)
might seem to relate to very different subject areas, the themes
of experiential learning, action research, integration and whole-ness
