Jon Darrall-Rew’s passion is to explore, awaken to and share the profound experience of life, what it means to be human, and how we can live together in the greatest love, empowerment and freedom.
Jon is the co-founder of Synergy Forum, an international initiative dedicated to the integration of spiritual awakening with social innovation, Bright Alliance, a media platform and community of practice exploring the evolution of global spirituality, and he is the European Director of the Global Purpose Movement, an international project that convenes organisations, projects and individuals to empower humanity’s alignment with its highest purpose. Between 2011-2014, he served as head of the international spiritual community, Shamballa School, and between 2012-2015 he worked as part of the leadership team of a project based in Interlaken, Switzerland, exploring how a deeper understanding of spiritual awakening might inform globally cooperative efforts toward the evolution of human civilisation.
Jon has been a student of the world’s spiritual traditions for most of his life. His core practice has been in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition of Dzogchen, the Trans-Himalayan teachings of Helena Blavatsky, Alice Bailey and Bruce Lyon, Ken Wilber’s Integral Theory, and has also focussed extensively on psychological healing, conscious sexuality and healthy embodiment. Jon teaches Tibetan Buddhism under the guidance of his Tibetan Lama, has a BSc in Psychology, and is a certified leadership consultant. He is a facilitator of WEpractice, a form of collective spiritual practice that focuses on creating fields of collective intimacy, trust, awakening and intelligence, and is co-author with Dustin DiPerna of the book, Earth is Eden.
Jon lives in Berlin, Germany with his partner, Jesslyn.
