Well known as a leading teacher and author of modern spirituality and meditation, William’s inspiration comes from decades of training in esoteric philosophy and energy work.

At the same time he has a doctorate in political psychology from the London School of Economics and is an advocate of emotional literacy, so his metaphysics is grounded in everyday realities.
