Biography 


Pilgrim Simon has spent forty years exploring spirituality. He gained a degree in psychology and post graduate qualifications in counselling and was for a time a member of the British Psychological Society, contributing to their Transpersonal Psychology Journal. He has had a number of mystical experiences and has also been diagnosed as Bi-Polar or Manic-Depressive. It is this set of circumstances that contribute to the themes of his studies, and enable him to look at his subjects with personal insight. His studies draw not only from personal experience but also from many religious and spiritual traditions as well as from psychology, psychiatry and Transpersonal psychology including thinkers such as Shankara, Ibn Al-Arabi, Meister Eckhart, David Waite, George Kelly, Ken Wilber, Arthur Deikman and Karen Armstrong. Some studies are purely Christian in content, whilst others draw on a wider spiritual perspective
