🎊 You have found Tim Mansfield’s website…

If you came here from Talk Gnosis looking for more information on some of the stuff I talked about, use the contact form to send me a message with questions or DM me on Twitter @timjmansfield

If you’d like to stay in touch with what I’m thinking and doing, join my newsletter:

Some things you might be looking for

  • my LinkedIn page (which is the closest you’re likely to find to a CV)
  • my Facebook (if I know you, send me a friend request)
  • my Twitter (mostly retweets)

🏭 I run The Interaction Consortium. We build web software, very often for museums, large and small, but also lots of other things. If you need some smart people who can help you build something, you should get in touch.

⛪️ I take my spirituality pretty seriously. I help run the Apostolic Johannite Church, which is an odd, heterodox, free-thinking, esoteric church. I teach a fair bit there and you can find some of my stuff on our YouTube channel. If you’re in Sydney, check out St Uriel’s parish, our local community – we’re a small gang of weirdos, you’ll probably fit right in.

Things I’ve Written

  • my Google Scholar page has most of my academic publications
  • my Medium account has almost nothing on it
  • my old, attic blog at timbomb.net has all the blog posts I’ve ever written archived. A lot of those first few pages are from an old tumblr account, which is pretty noisy. Sorry.

Things I wrote which people say are helpful

Getting Started with Meditation is a short guide that does what it says in the title. Non-sectarian. Full of links and references. I think it’s a good starting point and some people agree with me.

When a dog passes is a little essay that I wrote after my partner and I lost our dog and then some friends lost their dog. I was thinking about dogs and how we love them and what grieving means. This was not so long after my mum died, so that was in my mind too. People ask me for this sometimes.

You may think you love Hafiz is a thing I wrote to repost when well-meaning friends post “Hafiz” quotes on social media, not realising that they’re usually reposting something written by the American poet Daniel Ladinsky. Feel free to use it yourself!

If you find yourself single on Valentine’s Day… is a little, short (hopefully) poetic thing that I sometimes post on Valentine’s Day. It’s meant to be encouraging for people who are single because sometimes that day’s tough if you are.
