Deirdre Munro

I worked as a landscape architect (now retired) mostly for inner London Boroughs. Currently, among other activities, I work as a mental health chaplain. In addition I walk, attempt to grow vegetables, identify wild flowers and birds, and occasionally indulge in calligraphy, and a wide range of reading. deirdre.munro1@btinternet.com

Andrew Norman

I am now one of the two co-chaplains in Green Christian. My spirituality is catholic-ecumenical, mindfulness-based and anchored in being a Companion of Julian of Norwich. The focus of my work is as a counsellor and a spiritual accompanier. Living in Devon we are constantly reminded of the beauty of the world – and prompted to listen more deeply for all that is needed for the wellbeing of our earth.
