Our ninth ‘Creative conversation’ is to be presented by John Richter:
3 February 2022: John Richter, ‘On the edge of Quakers’.
‘Perhaps, since hearing Krishnamurti’s talks in Friends House in the mid 1960s, I have remained close to Quakers. I went through Scientology in San Francisco; Christian Kabbala in Highgate; a Bhuddist Sangha in Dulwich and a career as a jewellery designer in New York.
I am now a member of Wells-next-the-Sea meeting in Norfolk, where I live and work as an artist.’
(NB: the links above are mainly to wikipedia articles. There are numerous links on the internet to Christian Kabbala and Buddhist Sangha/Buddhism. The Wells meeting link is correct, that on quaker.org.uk is incorrect).
