Peter is a poet, and was for many years Head of English at The Latymer School, Edmonton. He is Editor-in-Chief of Perdika Press, which publishes original and translated modernist poetry.
Peter founded VISIONARY COMPANY courses in 2005. His teaching focuses on the practical spiritual lessons to be drawn from reading the works of major poets and novelists. His courses - of which he has now devised more than 30 - address a very wide range of subjects, including the works of Shakespeare, the Metaphysical Poets, Milton, Blake, Wordsworth, Coleridge, Keats, Hopkins and T.S. Eliot. Novelists taught include Jane Austen, Dickens, D.H. Lawrence, Andre Gide and Thomas Mann. Peter has also scheduled courses on various traditions of spiritual poetry from India, China, Japan, the near East, Europe and the Americas.
He has studied Kabbalah with Z'ev ben Shimon Halevi for over 15 years, but his courses are accessible to all, regardless of their spiritual orientation. Most of Peter's teaching takes place at City Lit in Holborn, but he also runs courses at his home in North London and at various venues across the country, including Mindful Family.

The first thing you discover is
a kind of emptiness,
a presence which doesn't seem to have content to it,
like looking up at a limitless sky.
That boundary-less place
is your own consciousness,
When you relax into it,
you realize that it's also full -
it is everything.
You realize this presence is
what you really are: Love.
