John Russell

Associate Rector

John used to be an academic and a Human Rights Lawyer. At age 40, he went into AA for 6 months, and started attending St James’s.

He lived with monks in Yorkshire for 3 years and became a priest. He offers spiritual direction in the Ignatian tradition and teaches Kundalini Yoga as a means to invite people towards a place of stillness and safety in which a transformative encounter with the divine becomes more possible.

His preferred modes of transport are bicycle and kayak. He has 27 tattoos and thinks he may have room for a few more.
