I am James Nichol and I live in Stroud, Gloucestershire, England. The Contemplative Inquiry blog started in August 2012, and includes personal sharing, discursive writing, poetry and book reviews. I began my contemplative inquiry within modern British Druidry and my book, Contemplative Druidry: People, Practice and Potential, was published in 2014. https://www.amazon.co.uk/contemplative-druidry-people-practice-potential/dp/1500807206/
Over time this blog has become a wider exploration of contemplative spirituality. I identify my path as a Sophian Way. It draws on the enduring wisdom of many times and places, and I experience it as a path of healing, peace and illumination. It encourages a spirit of openness, an ethic of interdependence and a life of abundant simplicity.
