US Congress and the Two Fools in a Mirror

Posted by on Aug 22, 2019 in News, Poetry

A while ago a US Congressman accidentally appeared in front of my Inner View Camera in the midst of a reasonably sized audience. What happened has led us to explore if there is a place for both ‘sides’ of the US Political argument to sit still enough in front of the aforementioned Camera so that they are profoundly recognized by the other.

If they find the courage to pursue this truth, I shall let you know.

Here is ‘Two Fools in a Mirror’ …

The Invitation

Posted by on Jul 2, 2019 in Audio, Events, News, Poetry, 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 …

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 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 …

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 Creative Alternative to Hiring a Speaker

Posted by on Sep 17, 2018 in Behind the Film, Events, Interviews, News

Someone had asked whether they could arrange a live Inner View Filming Experience at their event, as a creative alternative to hiring a speaker. I included these few words to give him a sense of what might happen if they were to do so …

“The room quietens as another film subject emerges deliberately from the audience. She, or he, approaches the Inner View Camera with something to say. Something worthwhile speaking. Words that have purpose, and an obvious use in his or her world. Perhaps even to the world at large. Words that set out to convince us all.

The subject sits. Close to the camera. Close to me. Eyes closed, ever deepening breath, as the spartan words of instruction remove any requirement from our time together. The point of being here, that was so vividly etched into a previously important list is now lost, as the image is cast in high contrast black and white to a large screen. Arrestingly beautiful. Always. We are all to be included unreservedly in this experience of the human soul made visible. Of humanity witnessed.

From a palpable and utter stillness, it is as if the subject ‘is spoken’. Words. And space. And an unbridled vulnerability of such profound importance that the audience cannot turn away.

Here there is nowhere to hide. Here there is no need to hide. Here there is the surrender of control, the control that kept us from seeing one another. From seeing ourselves. Here, for this moment in time there is freedom. And an experience that will most probably live deep within each of us.” …

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.

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.’
