Though a member of these Groups, Steve's approach to spirituality is an eclectic one, as he feels that every path has something to offer. He reads widely on spiritual subjects and incorporates what he learns into his teaching, in its various forms.
Steve feels that a sense of the sacred for each individual is vital to the maintenance of health and well-being and for the fulfillment of our potential and development. More personally, Steve has a deep love of many forms of music, runs long-distance and cycles. He follows his own programme of yoga and chi kung. He enjoys visiting sacred and natural sites and watching football, remaining loyal to his origins by supporting his home-town team, Brighton & Hove Albion. He is the father of two children, Dakota and Amber.
