Satish Kumar

Satish Kumar is the guiding spirit behind a number of ecological, spiritual and educational ventures in Britain and is a teacher of reverential ecology, holistic education and voluntary simplicity. When he was nine years old, he renounced the world and joined the wandering brotherhood of Jain monks.

He is Visiting Fellow at Schumacher College, a residential international centre for the study of ecological and spiritual values, the Editor of Resurgence magazine, and founder of the Small School in Hartland, a pioneering secondary school which brings into its curriculum ecological and spiritual values. He is author of No Destination (1978), You Are, Therefore I Am – A Declaration of Dependence (2002), and The Buddha and the Terrorist (2004).
