He is married with two children and has a keen interest in Japanese culture (his wife being Japanese) and has practised Zazen and spent time on a spiritual retreat in Eihei-Ji (the Soto Zen monastery in northern Japan founded by Eihei Dogen in the 13thC) although he now practises hesychasm or Christian Meditation. He has an interest in the mystical and spiritual aspects of the Christian tradition which he feels have been diluted by cultural inertia and dogmatism but that are definitely worth rediscovering.

Darren’s interest in the Anglican Communion might seem a bit ‘fogey,’ but he believes that in order for Christianity to still be relevant as a spiritual force it must shed all the cultural baggage and prejudice and the Anglican Communion seems to be the only one doing this. Darren also shares a fascination of the Orthodox confession and its mysticism.
