  • Philosophy: Stuart
    Many philosophers from Aristotle to Nietzsche consider art to be therapeutic. Nietzsche and Jung both credit themselves with being psychologists through their philosophy, and many philosophers write about appropriate lifestyle, ethics and decision making from Plato to Kant and Bentham and on to Foucault (to name but a few). Often philosophy offers us more useful insights into human thought, the nature of life, ethics and related subjects than psychology, which is often sarcastically described as being about "rats and stats". Stuart has completed various philosophy undergraduate courses, is in the process of studying for a psychology and (western) philosophy BSc and has completed a D.Phil in Mindfulness in Eastern and multi-faith Philosophy & Theology. 
    He is attuned at Master level in multiple forms of Reiki including Zen Reiki, and has a deep interest in Taoism and Zen. He also uses interpretive Qi Gung in practice.
