About me

My job is not to solve people’s problems or make them happy, but to help them see the grace operating in their lives. Eugene Peterson

JulianWelcome to This Body.

I am Julian Maddock. However far I wander, I always return to a wish to be with God. It is a fundamental desire in my life. I have not always been good at following this calling but it hasn’t let me go and has become the energy that is at the core of my work. I write here about the body, prayer and the relationship with God. [Learn more]

I publish here every Monday. I post a *[Pause for Thought](http://www.thisbody.info/category/pause/)* on Thursdays. I also post occasional journal entries. You can sign up for these free updates on the right or at the bottom of the page.

I am a spiritual director, supervisor and trainer, and I lead the 3rd year of the Ignatian Spirituality Course. I am available for workshops, courses, consultations and retreats.

You can find me on LinkedIn and Twitter. I am supported by the Annunciation Trust.

Please contact me if you would like to work with me.
