Our world will change when we change

34 years ago a physical structure I named the Reciprocal Frame

dumped itself in my awareness.

From the moment of its arrival, it was clear that it was also

wisdom in structural form.

Its wisdom guided me on an inner journey

through my pain, suffering and the endless activity of my mind

to awaken to self  as THAT which permeates all

THAT by which and within which all experience is known

Silent formless undivided awareness.

This bestowed peace in my mind

and happiness in my heart

where previously there was none.

In those 34 years I have designed and constructed some

40+ Reciprocal Frame buildings and structures.

Each one an embodiment of that silent wisdom.

My work is a weaving

of these inner and outer worlds.

Outer action & Inner transformation.

It is a great pleasure to pass on the meditations, practices and understanding arising from my inner journey, together with the technical and design know-how from my design, construction and project work with the Reciprocal Frame.

  The Be the Change tour is the latest Peacebuildings project

It is an amalgamation of this inner and outer work.

Each project, no matter how small or large,

is essentially a cocoon and crucible

where we humans can forge re-connection

with our ever present silent awareness

as a foundation for peace and sustainability on earth.

The Reciprocal Frame

where form and formlessness interweave.

Formlessness is an absence of form.

Absence permeates all life,

and bestows awareness,

to the perception of  life and form.


We identify with our perception of the world of form.

That identification tells us we exist.

Its solid .We can see it, hear it, touch it, taste it, smell it

and our mind thinks it can understand it.

Rarely does a form clearly invite us to that which

we cannot see or hear, or touch, or taste, or smell.

To that which is beyond the capacity of the mind to understand.

The beams of the Reciprocal Frame form a vortex,

which invites us to experience the centre-less absence.

The Reciprocal Frame embeds that invitation in buildings.

Reunion with that experience bestows peace and happiness to the heart and mind.

Be the Change Tour with The Peacebuildings Yurt

The Peacebuildings Yurt is a traveling epicenter of change.


At this time I am moved to take it on a Journey of Peace particularly to countries surrounding Russia and the Ukraine but also Europe and the UK.  I am crowdfunding to pay for the Yurt, the trailer to transport it and a vehicle to haul it, with all the associated travel  and accommodation expenses.


Inner transformation & outer action

Peacebuildings is a response
to perhaps the greatest challenge
we have ever consciously faced on this planet

If we are to have a world
where peace, truth, justice and sustainability have dominion......
We must first unearth those qualities in ourselves

Are we the ones

who are willing to change ourselves
so that life on earth can change for all.


Peacebuildings are epicenters of such change

Out of Nowhere

Playing with form

The Reciprocal Frame came Out of Nowhere

It is the name of my commercial studio in honour of its origin.

In the years since 1987 I have designed and made 45 or so Reciprocal Frame buildings.

From small garden offices and meditation sanctuaries

to radical ecological homes and million pound Woodland Burial Park complexes.

I accept commissions to design Reciprocal Frame buildings and offer consultative constructional assistance.

I offer courses on all aspects of Reciprocal Frame design and construction

Into Nowhere

Playing within formlessness

Nowhere is an interesting word,

Comprising Now Here.

We can spend a lifetime seeking,

and never arrive here and now.

So the question is how do we arrive,

when we never left?

If we never left, why does it feel like we have?

How and with what do we make a re-union

Into Nowhere is an exploration into these questions

and finally into Now Here
