David Moody

David Edmund Moody, PhD, is the author of An Uncommon Collaboration:  David Bohm and J. Krishnamurti.  He worked closely with Bohm and Krishnamurti in his capacity as director of the Oak Grove School, founded by Krishnamurti in Ojai, California, in 1975.  Moody’s relationship with the two men is described in his previous book, The Unconditioned Mind:  J. Krishnamurti and the Oak Grove School.

Moody is currently completing a biography of Krishnamurti that presents his philosophy in a new light.  Krishnamurti in America: New Perspectives on the Man and His Message is scheduled for publication in October 2019.

Moody facilitated a series of seminars conducted by Bohm at Oak Grove School, in which Bohm described his views on consciousness and the human condition.  He conducted several recorded dialogues with Bohm, three of which are included as appendixes in An Uncommon Collaboration.

He took his PhD in education at UCLA in 1991.  His doctoral research investigated the logical structure of high school biology textbooks and their effects on student understanding of the theory of evolution.  Moody is the author of numerous articles in popular and professional journals on topics related to biology and science education, including Gaia theory and the development of a curriculum based on the cultivation of insight.
