I'm very happily married to Christine Connelly, who co-authored two of our books.
We're developing a website to communicate our work and ideas more widely. Human Solutions Now contains a growing collection of extracts and summaries of our three books, as well as articles and blog posts.
Our first book, entitled Sustainable Communities looked at the role of ecovillages in sustainable development. It was based on a 6-month study tour of 11 ecovillages in Australia, the USA and Europe. Afterwards we joined the Findhorn ecovillage community in Scotland for 12 years. Extracts from the book and other writings about community can be found here
Our most recent book is Hope for Humanity: How understanding and healing trauma could solve the planetary crisis. In it, we argue that almost everyone is affected by trauma to some extent, and that trauma blocks progress towards a more positive future. We believe humanity will be unable to resolve the crisis until it takes effective action to reduce the creation of trauma and heal existing trauma.

Here I argue that, in order to overcome the crisis of civilization, we need a new worldview that integrates science and spirituality. This book won the Scientific and Medical Network book prize for 2006. Ervin Laszlo wrote of it:
This hits the nail on the head. We need a worldview that is integrated and shows that we are all parts of a greater whole - and that this view has its foundations in science, and is not mere speculation. I hope this will find the broad readership it deserves - and that we all deserve if enough people are to understand and embrace the holistic worldview to make a real difference in our crisis-wracked and dangerous unsustainable world.

I’ve spent many years researching and writing about global issues. I’m now shifting focus from books to the web, and linking to like-minded people and organizations. If you’re curious to know more about me and my work, visit Human Solutions Now.
I share the belief that we are in a global emergency. To achieve global emergence requires urgent action or we will end up…Continue
