Our network honours the integrity of the work of Ian Gordon-Brown and Barbara Somers, who pioneered Transpersonal Psychology in Britain in the early 1970s. They developed an approach that was unique to them, drawing on their own personal studies and life experiences, to enable others to make the transformational journey towards self-knowledge and the discovery of life’s purpose and meaning.

The warp and weft of their creation came from Ian’s special interest in ways of expanding individual and group consciousness, esoteric movements and social networks, and Barbara’s development of dreamwork, and knowledge of symbolism and mythology, the interaction of psyche and soma, and Eastern systems of spiritual development, especially Tibetan and Zen.
