ABOUT 

This is the website of Savaric Whiting Ltd – a company owned and managed by Barry Taylor. The purpose of the site is to share with others, experiences gained in working in the specialised field of spiritually inspired sustainable community projects.

The information in this site is based upon experience gained in Glastonbury Uk, but we believe this has a universal application

Such projects are unconventional in the way they are inspired, but conventional in the need for a formal organisation structure.

Interests 

early years were spent in the business world, gaining experience in finance, management and administration of businesses and charities. The last 30 years have been spent in Glastonbury working on many different community projects.

This has involved working with academics at various universities and has enabled me to gain considerable experience in what might be thought of as the three conflicting aspects of these projects - namely

  • Spiritual inspiration leading to a desire for organic natural growth and a distrust of concrete material planning.
  • The academic desire to learn about spirituality in an objective, detached fashion, whereas spirituality can only be understood as a subjective experience gained through some form of spiritual practice.
  • The practical material world wanting to see concrete plans and clearly defined objectives before making resources and finance available

I am currently using this experience to work with others to explore ways in which we might up up up promote greater awareness of contemporary spirituality and its application to material projects.

Personal 

Enjoying family, friends, writing and sailing.
