John Alkin joined the White Eagle Lodge in Kensington in the mid 60’s where he learned the basics of meditation and healing. Later he attended Theo Gimbal’s colour healing seminars at his Hygea Studios in the Cotswolds.
In 1980 he began working with Lee Everett and in 1982 helped co-found her House of Spirit in Bayswater, London. In 1985 John married Lee.
Having helped established the House of Spirit’s reputation as a centre of excellence for meditation and spiritual development groups, he accompanied her on nationwide tours of lectures and seminars.
In 1994 Lee and John moved to Berkshire where the seeds of Obsidian College began to take root. He now runs Obsidian’s men’s groups and is Co-Director of Obsidian College.
