Jude Mills – She/They

I am an interfaith Minister and spiritual counsellor, ordained with One Spirit Interfaith Foundation in 2020. I hold a Master’s degree in Public Theology (University of Chichester 2023) and I am a PhD candidate in Religious Studies with the University of Kent. My research focuses on podcasting and narratives of spiritual and religious abuse.

I have thirty+ years’ experience as a performing artist,  group work facilitator and teacher. I graduated from the University of Glasgow in 1989 with an MA in theatre and music and spent a number of years as a community arts facilitator before moving into teaching and training and taking postgraduate studies in psychology, creative writing and theology. I am also a Yoga teacher, complementary therapist, and certified embodiment facilitator. Since 2011 I have specialised in yoga for people living with cancer, and teach yoga teachers to offer this work.

I am a Scot,  living in East Sussex on the South Coast of England, I write  – poetry and non-fiction –  paint sing, make jewellery and crafts, take photographs and enjoy experiencing artistic expression in all its forms.

My personal spiritual practice is constantly evolving but it remains deeply rooted in contemplative Christianity, informed by my forays into Celtic Christianity and Christo Druidry and my practices of Yoga and Zen meditation. I am a practising member of an inclusive Anglican Church.

My relationship to, and fascination with this great mystery has been lifelong and continues to evolve.
