Biography for William Bloom

Biography for William Bloom

Originally a Londoner I remember the first time I came down to Glastonbury and just breathed a huge sigh of relief. There was something about the landscape, how it looked and felt, that was right for me.

I remember too the first time I walked around Glastonbury Abbey and in particular how moved I was when I sat quietly in the Joseph Chapel, the site of the original wattle church. I have a huge affection for this wonderful spiritual site.

My work background is as an educator and author specialising in a holistic approach to spirituality and health and I lead a small educational charity called the Spiritual Companions Trust. I have a doctorate in social psychology from the London School of Economics and also spent nine years working with special needs adults and teenagers.

In my role as a trustee of Glastonbury Abbey I try to bring an approach that is grounded in everyday realities yet also open to the wonder and mystery of life.
