Andrew Clark worked for nearly 30 years as a psychiatrist and psychotherapist in the NHS before retiring in 2017. Since 1990, he has participated in many pilgrimages and retreats led by Peter and Sarah Dawkins, and has also co-led pilgrimages with the Gatekeeper Trust. He has sung in choirs for many years and feels increasingly called to use heart-centred singing and sounding as a way to develop our heart consciousness.
