Chris Thomson's WDDM Home Page

I have a vast range of experience as a group leader, presenter, and facilitator. I have designed and run dialogues on corporate social responsibility in the UK and USA and has led organisational change at the highest level. I work with individuals and teams to bring out the best in everyone, particularly their uniqueness and courage

Over the years, I have worked as an lawyer in private practice, as an economist in the Bank of England, as a teacher of Chinese to undergraduates, and, more recently, as a psychotherapist. In the late 80s and early 90s, I helped to set up and run the UK Parliamentary Group for Alternative and Complementary Medicine. I also set up and chaired the Natural Medicines Commission, and co-authored The Health Crisis with Denis McEoin. After the advent of limited autonomy in Scotland, I became Futures Director of the Scottish Council Foundation.

While in the USA a few years ago, I was Director of the Atalaya Institute in Santa Fe, New Mexico. This is an unusual organisation that focuses not on treating the "symptoms" of problems, which is what normally happens, but on looking instead at their deeper, often spiritual, causes. The Atalaya Institute now operates under the name of Central Purpose (see http://www.centralpurpose.com )

I have keynoted at several international conferences, including the World Health Congress, and the International Science and Consciousness Conference.

I am a keen musician and mountaineer. I have good Spanish and French and a working knowledge of Chinese.

Chris you are a great addition to our WDDM team. We certainly need to pull together and set a goal, project to accomplish same and do it. Perhaps you could help us "get together" in this work.
What are your ideas? You have had much experience with government agency's, perhaps you would help us find ways to work with government and yet accomplish DD.
