He does not see himself as an irrational new-agey type. But Jordi's aim is to help indigenous people defend their beliefs about the world. He is in South Korea this week to run workshops about and for spiritual leaders. 'Who are we to say that their worldview world doesn't make sense?'
Jordi has mixed feelings about nature religions. 'In Africa many different groups talk to their ancestors and make decisions based on what they tell them. I find that very interesting but when a tribal chief told me they could teach me to do it too, I was not sure I really wanted that. To be honest I find it a bit spooky. It is a whole different world to the one I was used to at the university. Recently I often find myself thinking, why shouldn't these people's way of thinking be allowed? They've been thinking that way for years and who are we to say that their worldview doesn't make sense?'
