Rob Nairn is one of the pioneers in presenting Buddhist philosophy and practice in a way that is accessible to the western mind. We were delighted to welcome him to St James. In 1980 he resigned as professor of criminology at the University of Cape Town to commit full-time to his spiritual path. His training in psychology and Buddhism – including a four-year isolation retreat at Samye Ling Tibetan Centre in Scotland – enables him to translate ancient Eastern wisdom into concepts we can understand and apply.
