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.

A Gathering of the Unordinary Ones in Minneapolis

Posted by on Jan 27, 2018 in Events, Soul Biographies Inner View Method

A friend co-founded a magazine many years ago. The Utne Reader. The New York Times reported that if you noticed a fellow reader on the subway by way of a rolled up copy of the magazine under their arm, then that was reason enough to invite them to dinner.

That story haunted me. And then I realized that Soul Biographies offers the very same invitation …

The Surrender Of All Notions Of A Different Future

Posted by on Jan 19, 2018 in Poetry, Soul Biographies Inner View Method

Perplexing to many, offensive to some and to the way we believe this life works. Wrote it anyway. Of course, I might be entirely incorrect. It has been known.

It does speak to the state of the person behind the camera in the Soul Biographies INNER VIEW Method.

A man of this new
and unfathomable age
surrendered all notions

How Business Owners Get Purpose Wrong

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.’

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 …

I Simply Must

I received these few words on an enquiry form, regarding one of the Soul Biographies Programs.

Yes, please.
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.

In Search of Who I Am and What I’ve Been Pretending Not to Know

In Search of Who I Am and What I’ve Been Pretending Not to Know

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 …
