Richard Dell MA (Oxon.) is a retired headmaster in his sixties. He was born in Dorset and brought up in Southampton. Leaving school at sixteen, he did a variety of jobs, including cleaning lavatories, drawing maps and working underground. Discovering books and his spiritual journey when he was twenty-one, he eventually attended Coleg Harlech in North Wales, before going on to St. John’s College, Oxford to read philosophy, politics and economics. Richard then taught history, philosophy and sport, and was subsequently a headmaster for over twenty years. He has appeared on television and radio and has published a number of articles. Richard describes himself as being, in this incarnation, an Anglican. But it is the mystical path, rather than organised religion that is the centre of his life.
In his school’s last inspection (2002) the inspectors reported on the ‘visionary leadership of the headmaster’. When he retired (2006) the chairman of his school wrote: ‘Richard’s warm personality and subtle sense of humour, his ethical principles and trust in people … are just a few of the qualities that describe the philosopher, thinker and communicator whose soul, heart and humour have shaped (our school) with its unique atmosphere where children are happy and learning is a joy.’
Richard lives with his wife in North Wales. They have four grown up children, and two grandchildren.
Richard's books challenge our orthodox thinking on politics and religion.

Talks by Richard Dell
"We must be prophets, even if we cannot yet live the prophecy."
Richard's talks are challenging in their ideas, but always thoroughly entertaining in their presentation. He has that invaluable ability to break down the barriers between speaker and audience.
HEALING OUR NATIONS - Richard reveals how the philosophy and language of healing can be transferred into the social and political arena, thereby revealing what is wrong with our modern western politics, our modern western way of life; and what we have to do to change things.
MAKING LOVE TO GAIA - Richard examines James Lovelock's Gaia Theory in light of our need to recognise and reverence the Goddess.
CYRIL SCOTT: MYSTIC & MUSICIAN - Using examples of Cyril Scott's music, Richard explores the life and esoteric theories of one of Britain's most important twentieth century composers.
LORD DOWDING: SPIRITUALIST, THEOSOPHIST, SAVIOUR OF OUR WORLD? - Richard paints a loving portrait of the seemingly diffident victor of the Battle of Britain, and of his second wife. Called 'old stuffy' in the RAF, Dowding became famous after his retirement for speaking to those of his pilots who had been killed. With a PowerPoint presentation, Richard takes us through Lord Dowding's remarkable life, through which glimpses of divine intervention can be discerned.
