For Anyone Who Has Ever Considered Sitting In Front Of This Camera

These few minutes are for anyone who has ever considered sitting in front of the Soul Biographies Camera.

Patti Digh’s first book was entitled ‘Life is a Verb’. Many people read it. It may have started a movement. She had for many years intended to come to one of the Soul Biographies Inner View Programs. These few minutes articulate some of what happened when she did.

It is for those who have been underground. It is for those seeking a coming out …

On the Possibility of Nicaragua

On the Possibility of Nicaragua

Felix ended up in front of my camera. He is from Nicaragua. President Ortega had blamed him as a contributing factor to the protests that saw government troops end the lives of many hundreds of citizens.

After his arrest, he managed to escape and ended up in the apartment my camera and I were staying at in Guatemala City. His family had made their escape to somewhere in the United States before the worst could happen …

Notes From Behind The Inner View Camera

This is some of what I’ve come to understand about the components of speaking truth out loud. These few words point to the stark difference between ‘speaking to, or at’ the world with the expectation of something in return, and ‘being spoken’. I have also come to understand that is my work, and the very reason I was compelled to pick up the camera those many years ago …

I Needed To Die

These few minutes articulate something of Inner View, and in doing so reveal something of the human experience so beautifully elemental that it might change you and you won’t know why. The experience sits amongst and between the words. You will need to remain still, held in full and present attention. To me the binary nature of the human experience is clear when one notices where words come from …

The Artist Who Works with Nothing

A someone who recently sat in front of the Soul Biographies Camera woke up a few days ago with these unexpected few words in her imagination. She had no idea where they had come from. Or why, but thought that they pointed to something of importance with respect to this somewhat mysterious work […cont]

‘How To See Someone’ Audio

‘How To See Someone’ Audio

A while back I recorded a few minutes as a contribution to you remembering your innate capacity to ‘see’ another.

From deep within the Art and Science of Witnessing.

‘… after nearly 15 years in close proximity to the camera and the human soul, it has come down to the stark realization that there is nothing to do, and no one to do it. And that this sense of profound surrender is perhaps the greatest contribution anyone could make to the world.’

Details of the teaching of this way can be found here. Many are inexplicably drawn to the possibility.

On Cancer, Death Valley and A Bicycle

On Cancer, Death Valley and A Bicycle

In October I filmed Robert Vogel at an Inner View Program. It was extraordinary. As many viewers have given testament to. I put the entire footage up, raw. You can see ‘A Thousand Moments’ without a password for the rest of this week.

“I am alive. I am pain-free. And I am loved.”

Robert has brain cancer but has found a way to keep it at bay. Vast amounts of hard physical exercise. Many hours a day. Much on a bicycle. Cycling often through the night into the early hours through dawn.

Now he has decided to ride for charity through Death Valley. You can sponsor him. But you’d have to do it today …

The Soul Of Your Work On Film

A full day of intensive filming with Nic for a very small group of participants (between 3 and 5). The objective will be to capture the essence of a participant’s work on film using the Inner View Method. Filming all day, with a full process involving multiple visits to the camera. The environment will be Retreat like. A full day lost in unbridled awareness. Filming from the conscious drop.

Current Dates; Washington DC Metro Area on 13th February. London, UK on 10th April. These dates in each City follows the Day Inner View Program. DC + LONDON.

This Is Why Film Subjects Show Up As They Do

A few months back I was interviewed by Mary Alice Arthur as a part of the STORY THE FUTURE Project. I was subsequently told by someone who had studied the Inner View Method with me, that I really ought to listen back to it as my words articulated exactly what is going on with the camera and awareness. It concerns surrender.

So I did, and if you are drawn to understanding this way of seeing (how and why film subjects show up like they do in Soul Biographies) then bathe yourself in this audio interview. It is 42 minutes long, so find your time. Listen between the words. Even beyond the words …

Seeing Us As I See The Natural World

So many of us are able to remain still enough to absorb the magnificence of the natural world. To recognize the interconnectedness of it all.

Without need, and without opinion.

So how is it so remarkably challenging to sit and pay unbridled attention in similar fashion to each other. The interconnectedness of us all.

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 …

Articulating What Cannot Quite Be Said

Here is a note I recently sent to a the most recent Inner View Method Program Cohort.

Dear All, so this work as you know is a challenge to describe using the realm of words. What did you say when someone asked where had you been, and what had you done? …

Words From An Inner Viewer to Someone Who Wasn’t There

Words From An Inner Viewer (a Program Participant) to Someone Who Wasn’t There

I learned how to give you my full and undivided attention. To not need you to be anything different, so as to allow you to speak truth from deep in your soul.

And I learned to do this with a video camera running, so that what you speak you may see yourself. And if it were to be of service to the world, to enable you to share it with many.

I learned how I might accept, if not love, you unconditionally. And I have an idea I might be on the way to doing this for myself.

I experienced the immense power of vulnerability first hand. And for a short time at least I surrendered control to life itself and that piece of it leaves me lost for words.

Each Person’s Head Measured 7 to 8 Feet Tall

During the Inner View Method PROGRAMS the live film feed of each participant is fed to a monitor. We often use a projector. In our latest adventure the image of each person’s head measured somewhere between 7 and 8 feet tall. And with just 10 participant explorers for the 5 days there was truly nowhere to hide. Which with the experience of the interior world, is important.

I’ve come to understand that in the end it is best to experience this ‘non-dual’ experience, rather than talk about it. This is what changes everything.

In our newly found UK Inner View Home, a Rutland Farm, one wall is covered with the image of a forest. I was testing the set up without the projection screen down, and ended up looking somewhat unusual (OPEN THE POST!). If I ever film a druid, then I shall keep the projection screen retracted.

Next dates coming soon. USA, March 2019. UK April 2019.

Conscious Revolution – The Point Of This Work

“These times call for a conscious revolution in the way we act towards one another, driven by our capacity to better see and experience the common humanity that lives deep within our bones.”

Our innermost yearning is to be seen. And to know that we each belong without condition. But when this is not our experience, we are compelled to act dysfunctionally and it drives us further from one another’s sight. I become blind to you. And you to me …

A Participant Was Overheard Saying This

A participant on leaving an Inner View Program was overheard saying;

“This is the first time in my life that I never wrote a single note. Five Days. FIVE DAYS. And for some inexplicable reason, I feel that I’ve remembered more about my place in the world than I could have ever learned.”

This appears to be the way of surrender.

This Is Like A Hallowed Place

From this stillness and safety, the speaker starts to think more deeply, originally and creatively.

Previous jumbled thinking starts to make sense.

It feels like a truth, our real truth, who we really are, begins to emerge.

This is like a hallowed place.

Awash With the Surrender of Control and an Extraordinary Mystery

For the first time I have committed words to paper by way of description of the way I film Soul Biographies, and the (meta) physical principles I know to be in play. You can READ this overview which forms the shape of the Inner View Method Program. I hereby dare you to breathe in this CURRICULUM.

It starts with this unusual introduction …

A Few Words of Warning

A viewer who had been a participant (a witness from the audience and the witnessed in front of the camera) wrote to me with these few words of warning;

‘… sitting in the audience may appear to be a somewhat ‘safer’ way to engage in the work due to the distance from the camera and the intimacy of Nic’s full attention … but this is a false security. By witnessing Nic at work you will meet yourself and inevitably you will be profoundly moved by who you see. In so many ways it makes no difference where you are in relation to the camera.’ …

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 …

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.

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. These businesses are disconnected from purpose.

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.
