The Soul Biographies INNER VIEW METHOD is a way. The Art and Science of Human Witnessing. A way of eliciting authenticity, truth and intuitive intelligence. It’s a profound interview method. Used with or without a camera, designed for professionals and beginners alike. It’s a powerful way of capturing conscious authentic organizational stories. And of bringing immediate human connection into groups. All is learned through the visceral experience of a deep personal journey. It is an invitation to transform the way in which you engage the world.
Developed over the last 12 years by Soul Biographies Creator Nic Askew, a former Managing Director turned Educator and Film Maker, its major applications are for use in the fields of human development, interaction and exploration. Namely the fields of Coaching, Therapy, TV & Film Interview, Organizational Story Telling, Conflict Resolution, Hospice, Health and Youth Work, Personal and Organizational Development and More.

Although the Method is taught as a tool for use in the human professions, at its heart is a profound method of SELF INQUIRY, IN-SIGHT and MINDFULNESS leading to an increased SELF AWARENESS. Evidenced by the admitted breakthroughs by countless participants, it’s clear that there is a significant experience of personal transformation in this curriculum. The intended consequence of learning through experience. Some choose to take part entirely for this element.
