It’s 2am. You’re wide awake.
Feeling alone. Unseen.
And inexplicably lost.
Discontent despite all
that you have around you.
The people. Your life.
You wear a face that tells
the world you’re OK,
but you’re not.
You’re bone achingly tired
from the relentless
game of belonging.
You long for a meaningful place
in the world. And to
belong without condition.
You long to be seen …

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 …
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 …
I received these few words on an enquiry form, regarding one of the Soul Biographies Programs.
I simply must attend.
For my soul.
For my work.
For my life.
For my service to others.
The 2017 Program will be out soon. Much expanded.
Finally details are up for this immersive Soul Biographies Method Day. Built around the practical experience of live filming in the Soul Biographies Method. See the short audio film …
The second I sat down in front of the camera I found out that something else was already there in search of me. In search of Who I Am, What I Stand For, and What I’ve Been Pretending Not to Know. Instinctively, I ducked. I weaved. I recited poetry. But I discovered you can’t spar with silence. And in the end …
Thankful for it all.
For the seemingly unjust
Its stark opposite.
Each plays its part.
Each might hold
equal measure …
A Radio Interview. What might be the experience of filming Donald Trump, and more. And news of Washington DC Events 30th November and 1st December.

A single immersive day with the very experience of Soul Biographies at its heart and enough of the elements of the Method to inspire you to change way you see people with or without a camera. Much live filming …
I imagine the words of others to best describe the nature of these immersive transformational days.
So here they are …
There is most probably a science and an art to authenticity. I believe there is. But mainly there is the experience of it. And the noticing of it. A few weeks back this is what a group of us were immersed in. Subsequently I took glimpses of these encounters with the camera, and made this short piece of film …
In a first ever public event, I’ll be opening up the Soul Biographies filming experience in front of a live audience in aid of the Forgiveness Project.

The 2015 Retreat and Workshop calendar is published. USA and Europe. The close up examination of the Soul Biographies method and application for organizations.
What I have included here is unusual. An experiment if you like. I dare you to pay extremely close attention. You will need to. It is intricate, a meditation of sorts. It points to much, including the space in which films are made …
‘… through the lens of his spellbinding Soul Biographies Human Portrait Series, Poet Film Maker Nic Askew explores the intangible space that exists between people, and wonders if implicit trust and non judgment is simpler and more profoundly important than we might assume’ …
A few moments ago I sent this email out to a few people within a reasonable striking distance of London, England. About an event on the 4th and 5th December …
This piece, built from an unplanned telephone conversation, set out to in some fashion describe the experience of an upcoming London Event. But it ended up saying more about the nature of my work than many things I’ve attempted …
