Dom Ambrose writes

“I attended St Mary’s College, Rathmines, Dublin 6 and pursued a BA in Philosophical & Theological Studies, Milltown Institute of Philosophy and Theology, and H.Dip Ed at UCD.

In 2002 I came to the UK to work in the Social Care Sector in North West London (Wembey Park area). I gained first an MA in Psychology and Religion and then an MA in Biblical Studies at Heythrop College, London University.

In August 2008 while studying at Heythrop College, I gave a paper, “Spiritual but not religious: an historical and psychological approach to the phenomenon” at the International Conference of Psychology of Religion – Vienna, Austria. I gave the same paper in 2009 at “Alternative spiritualities, the New Age and New Religious Movements in Ireland“, National University of Ireland, Maynooth, from 30-31 October 2009. I joined Ealing Abbey in 2010.”
