Humanity and Purpose in Business. In Amsterdam. In April

Purpose is the business of the inner world, yet so many set about the challenge of recognizing, defining and articulating it from the intellect, and an examination of what they believe the world to need. This does not work. And causes profound problems that have no chance of resolving themselves. Businesses go out of business.

In Amsterdam on 26 April I shall be working with business owners for a full day immersed in the examination and resolution of all of this from the vantage point of the inner world. The actually inner world, using the Soul Biographies Inner View camera. So that we might all come to know what true purpose in business is, and how to share it with the world …

The Invitation

Posted by on Jan 30, 2018 in Audio, Events, News, Soul Biographies Experience

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.
Your dreams.

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 …

How Business Owners Get Purpose Wrong

Many business owners find it extremely challenging to articulate their purpose. To tell the world why they do what they do. It is important to do this in truthful and authentic fashion. It is important for founders and their reasons to be clearly seen. To be recognized without pretense …

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 …

You Have No Reason to Hate Me

You Have No Reason to Hate Me

In this journey that lies before me to find and witness the #SoulOfAmerica, I imagine there will be challenging times. Included in this will be the cameras exposure to the subject of racism and hate. Because it exists. Sometimes visible, often hidden.

As we travel the country, I imagine the camera will end up catching its visceral experience from both sides. The giver of hate, and its unwilling recipient. Having such experience in the full exposure of light for all to see beyond simply the idea of it will be useful at the very least.

The US Congress Should Pay Attention to Evelyn

On this particular day, I imagine US Leadership might do well to listen to these few minutes of Evelyn, 98.

‘I have been so fortunate in my 98 years but now I look at my country and I’m almost ashamed that we let such hypocrites make decisions for the masses of people who are good. But I am here for something. I am not ready to go. What an opportunity a human life is.’

Mr Askew I Believe You Might Be An Itinerant Confessor

Posted by on Apr 25, 2017 in News, Soul of America

Last Summer I spent a week on an Island in British Colombia with a gang of unacceptable thinkers. Unacceptable to the status quo that is. During dinner one evening RUPERT SHELDRAKE, the renowned and unacceptable Biologist, stopped the conversation at the table with these few words ‘Mr Askew, I believe you might be an itinerant confessor.’

I’m off to Tucson tomorrow on the first leg of the search for the SOUL OF AMERICA. Perhaps Rupert was right. Perhaps my role is as an itinerant confessor. To the inner voice of a Nation. Witnessed and caught on film for all to see.

The American Voice We Ignore

The American Voice We Ignore

I recently heard an intelligent radio program. About the divide in America and what might be done to bring the Nation together. You know the type of considered program. Intelligent views from a number of ‘sides’. But they were views. They were opinions. They absorbed the mind in extravagant possibility. But views and opinions shall never recognize their opposites. They shall never resolve conflict. At best they might agree to live alongside each other. To tolerate …

A First Step into the Soul of America

Posted by on Apr 19, 2017 in News, Soul of America

Tuscon, next week. I am thinking that this is one of my more unhinged ideas. I have made the decision to capture the Soul of America on film.

I have an idea that to find the Soul of anything one needs to get utterly lost. To simply start somewhere, and take each step as it appears. And so I have picked a random City in which to start. Somewhere I have never been, somewhere where I know close to no-one …

This is How an Organization Could Shoot Video

Posted by on Feb 24, 2017 in News, Organizations, Soul of Business

Video shot for websites in explanation of an organization’s work in the world is most often so obvious. So obviously selling you on an idea, if not something more concrete. So obviously disconnected.

When one understands the mechanics of authenticity on film, one can set out to bring life to important work without letting oneself down. Without the disability of in-congruence.

I’m in Germany next week doing just this. Defining the arc of an organization’s work and what message will help its true understanding. Then filming over the week for just that, amongst the under current of human presence. It is an art worth knowing. It will bring in the audience that previously couldn’t see, couldn’t connect, on account of the confines of so many inadequate words.

This will be a full and glorious week of immersion, connected people and creativity in film. A true exploration and discovery in service to a grand purpose.

If these few words define your challenge in some fashion, we should speak.
