Unlike Minds at The Monastery


Just as The Monastery is the spiritual home of Unlike Minds, Unlike Minds has become the consulting arm of The Monastery in a truly symbiotic relationship.

The two founding directors David Oliver and David Dickinson first became associated with The Monastery in 2010 when, following a vision and values chat with Chief Executive Elaine Griffiths, they were invited to relocate here from Manchester Metropolitan University. They joined the Trustee board in 2013 (Ray Hanks was already a Trustee) and have been involved in the developments here ever since.
