Issue: September 2009
Alternatives - St James

by Richard Dunkerly

In 2000, I had wanted to start the new millennium in a memorable way and so I attended Patterns in the Sand with Susannah and Ya’acov. It was certainly one of the most powerful workshops I have ever attended and the energy of that week is still alive in me 9 years later. Later that year I became a director of Alternatives at St James’s Church in Piccadilly, a place of inspiration for heart, mind and soul with a wonderful programme of talks and workshops. Since then I have helped to bring to London the leading presenters in the Mind Body Spirit world including Eckhart Tolle, Byron Katie, Deepak Chopra, Neale Donald Walsch, John Demartini, Marianne Williamson and many others. I have also regularly danced the 5 Rhythms with the wonderful Sue Rickards in north London.

This simple yet profound practice has inspired and transformed my life in so many ways. One evening in 2005, I turned to dance with a beautiful woman, who is now my partner and the mother of our two year old dancing boy. We are getting married next month. So dancing and moving can change your life!  I’m thrilled that Susannah and Ya’acov will be returning to Alternatives on Monday 28 September with a talk on Movement Medicine. You can book online or pay on the door. Full details at

Warm wishes
