David Johnson (US)
"After completing a degree in Computer Sciences, David Johnson traveled the world, discovering Tibetan Buddhism on his journey and developing an interest in environmental issues. On his return to the UK, David became involved with a Tibetan Buddhist sangha and moved to their Retreat Center in South Wales. He later purchased and moved to neighboring piece of land and built an award-winning ecological house. David continued exploring the overlap of ecology and spirituality through a Masters Degree program in Transpersonal Psychology with a concentration in Ecopsychology at Naropa University. During this time he also trained with Joanna Macy. His training and work with a number of ecopsychologists informed his thinking around the Heart & Soul aspects of Transition. David was involved in a think tank set up by Rob Hopkins in the early days of Transition Town Totnes and recently moved to Portland, Oregon where he has been in the central group helping to bring the Transition Initiative to Portland."
