Beyond Coaching For Coaches Masterclass Playing Now

I recently recorded the Beyond Marketing For Coaches Masterclass on Zoom Video, annotated it and added guitar. It is playing for the next two weeks. It is a worthy exposure of some of the key components of the Soul Biographies Inner View Method. It is playing for the next two weeks.

You can see it here …

Somebody Else’s Map. Somebody Else’s Markings

‘… you think you have a map in your hand that’s going to guide you to where you need to go. And as you walk along you realize the map you’re holding isn’t helping. It’s somebody else’s map. It’s somebody else’s markings on it.’

Two minutes on film, and the sense of an Interior Journey on Camera …

A Few Magnificent Clues As To How To Be Present To Another

To some this may remain forever bewildering. To others it might make clear an important step on the way to surrender. This is taken from a recent Masterclass Webinar entitled ‘Beyond Marketing for Coaches’. But if you are not on the coaching spectrum do not be put off. It holds relevance to anyone who longs to be more present to another.

An Utter Affront to Coaching. Or Freedom

The Anthisesis of TED

Yesterday I met with a group to talk about SOUL OF AMERICA funding ideas. Interestingly, after explaining the extraordinarily unusual WAY in which film subjects are captured, one of the group compared it to the storytelling in the ‘Moth Radio Hour’ and then to TED. Another immediately pointed out that it seemed like it was the very antithesis of these.

He was right. Subjects are left in utter peace without need until they are drawn by something almost otherworldly to speak. There is no story, rehearsed or previously told, that needs to be told. There is no need to convince the world of any philosophy or way. Spoken from this place words hold immense truth and potency. And the Soul of anything is revealed. The Soul of everything is revealed. It is dangerous to the status quo because little is built on truth.

What Was Revealed in Dallas

Posted by on Jan 7, 2018 in Behind the Film, Films, Interviews, Soul of America

There is this field. The field is the very atmosphere in which I film. It elicits something different in nature. And in Dallas, I sat in this field. This time, in front of the camera. And this is what happened.

This film will play just for this week …

Presence Before the Story

The words that people say are pretty much insignificant when set next to how they are. This is important to understand if one is to catch the ‘stories’ of this human race. An AUDIO FILM …

We Actually Look At Each Other Differently

Olav de Maat and his girl friend came along to an evening entitled ‘How to See the Human Soul’ in Amsterdam a few weeks back. And that is what we set about doing. With the image from the Soul Biographies camera projected on to a large cinema screen. Imagine the subjects – thank you Goor and Carolien – left with nowhere to hide and the beyond intimate black and white image leaving the audience similarly with nowhere to hide.

He wrote me this simple line a few days ago, about the experience of seeing deeper from inside their relationship.

‘… we actually look at each other differently now. Literally.’

In That Silence Everything Changed Forever

I’m often contacted by those who have been in front of the camera. A few weeks ago I received these few words from one such subject, filmed recently on Continental Europe;

“… in that silence everything changed forever.’

The Most Unusual Game of Walkabout

Posted by on May 27, 2017 in Behind the Film, Events, Films, Interviews, News, Products

There was a time where I was almost between Worlds. The Business World and the World that would come. But a World I didn’t know existed. And I made a game up. In retrospect it drew my notice to something that would define the way of Soul Biographies. The way of so much that I now experience. Last week I sat in front of the camera, and recounted the experience of this game …

109 Seconds Concerning the Point of the Films

‘… the idea of doing this (Soul Biographies) just turned up one day. There was no thinking it through. It was one of those intuitive ideas that exists in the realm of knowing. I knew I have to do this. But I have no idea why, how or in service of what.’ 2 Minute Film …

This I Believe

Posted by on Apr 5, 2017 in Behind the Film, Observations, Words

If we were to truly see each other from behind the folly of our own opinion, we might remember that we each belong without exception.

This is What I Do

I am not entirely certain why I am able to do this but I am certain that this is what I do.

I have the capacity to see people deeply. And I am able to elicit and capture on film the experience of inner worlds. It seems important because this is where truth lies. And with truth comes clarity. And with clarity comes vast possibility. This is what I do. For the courageous, its application is far reaching.

A Few Words of Warning

A viewer who had been participant in both possibilities within the Soul Biographies Experience (a witness from the audience and the witnessed in front of the camera) wrote to me with these few words of WARNING …

Words by Way of an Invitation

I wrote these few words by way of general invitation to all Soul Biographies Programs;

To truly bear witness to another allows for a voice that seems rare in this age. A voice that doesn’t set out to convince the world of right and wrong. A voice that starts without knowing where it might end up. A voice alive with truth and vulnerability, that travels without fear of consequence. The unfiltered voice of the human soul. The strength and wisdom of such a voice can change the course of a life. Even an organization. This time is about such a voice. This is where we will go …

Mr. Askew you’re a disruptive influence

Posted by on Jul 31, 2015 in Behind the Film, Interviews, Words

I answered the telephone mid afternoon. The caller stated these words clear as day, and as loud as the night is quiet.

‘Are you sure?’, I replied.
