REVOLUTIONIZE THE WAY YOU PAY ATTENTION TO ANOTHER

THE INNER VIEW METHOD

LEARN HOW TO ELICIT INSIGHT AND CAPTURE SPELLBINDING AUTHENTICITY WITH THE INNER VIEW METHOD

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

For close to two decades I’ve sat utterly still with countless people in front of my camera, and over time it became increasingly clear that there’s another way. A fundamentally different way to experience another. To witness the interior world, from where everything might change. It is an extraordinary place from which to tell stories of work that has set out to truly impact the world for the good.

Let me help revolutionize the way that you witness another. The further development of an innate and underlying capacity, in service to your work in the world. And life per se.

WHAT IS INNER VIEW WITNESSING

Inner View is a profound way to witness the interior realm of a person The Human Soul. It causes a direct experience of interconnectedness, belonging and conscious insight.

It is an experiential change in the way we see. A realization of our innate capacity to experience others with awareness, beyond judgment and without condition in order to create deep irrevocable human connection.

It is an underlying skill that compliments and enhances the work of those in the professional fields of human attention.

The embodied practices that make up Inner View Witnessing help you be more present and connected with yourself and those you are in service to, so that you can do better work together. And to access a deep awareness that supports intuitively intelligent decision making.

Importantly, this can have a dramatic effect on a life per se.

THIS IS IN MANY WAYS IS A REVOLUTION IN THE WAY WE SEE

WE HAVE HUNDREDS OF TESTIMONIALS. MORE WILL BE ADDED SOON

A FUNDAMENTALLY DIFFERENT WAY

This way has been developed over two decades of close human attention with the Soul Biographies film camera. Its lessons and experience have major implications for a fundamentally different way to be present to another.

For This Moment, Be Still
Start With Nothing
No-thing. No Act On Your Part
And Then, Let It
Let Their Experience Find You.
Not You Them.

THE ANTITHETICAL PRINCIPLE

Its radically simple and antithetical way starts with no-thing, recognizing that we largely experience each other through our minds, and thus our experience of another is our current conclusion of them. Inner View recognizes that witnessing is not actually an act on our part. And that we have an inculturated habit of the opposite.

It all hinges on our ability to know the nature of no-thing. The letting go of all acts, conscious and unconscious. This is the key focus of the education of what will become an underlying skill. A skill with which to affect the way we are with all others. Amplifying our capacity to contribute to the lives of those around us, professionally and in life per se.

FROM A CAMERA METHOD

It was taught for many years ostensibly as a Camera Method, a uniquely profound approach to interview. Interview + Surrender. Un-directed stream of consciousness. It became a valuable way of eliciting authenticity and truth on film but it was never truly just about the camera. The camera was the way it was at first noticed and then developed. But this use of an innate mindful presence has a far wider implication to the witnessing experience between people.

The camera remains important in its experiential education, and in relevant situations where capture is of obvious benefit (e.g. storytelling, coaching, therapy). A camera/filming module is included in this education, and the camera is central to the learning process per se. See below.

Note: the Soul Biographies Film Series is made using Inner View.

HOW IT IS TAUGHT

Inner View Witnessing is taught personally in small groups online and in-person by its creator, Nic Askew, using film, photographic portraits, piercing words, live Inner View filming (witnessing) with large scale projection and practical exercises between participants. And personal time witnessed by Nic and the Inner View camera.

The essence of this is that it’s taught through the embodied experience of awareness and not simply as a curriculum of ideas. This is beyond important. See image below (camera + subject) and click to read testimonials).

“… when we come to see each other beyond judgment and without condition we are known. When we are known, we become aware that we belong to each other. And when we become aware that we belong to each other we are compelled to act accordingly, and this world changes for the better.” Nic Askew

FIELDS OF USE

Primary fields of use : coaching, therapy, tv & film interview, organizational story telling, documentary film, mediation & conflict resolution, human rights, hospice, health & youth work, personal & organizational development, and other human attention fields.

+ life per se – we recognize that this capacity to witness another is an underlying skill useful to a life per se. You are welcome to consider this Program or the more Life Focused IMMERSION.

IT IS IMPORTANT THAT THE EDUCATIONAL EXPERIENCE INCLUDES THE EMBODIED EXPERIENCE OF INNER VIEW. THIS IS ACHIEVED THROUGH TIME BEING WITNESSED BY THE IV CAMERA. SEE THE MANY WORDS THAT HAVE BEEN WRITTEN ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE – CLICK IMAGE

The Experience Beyond An Idea : this way of seeing is awash with the surrender of control and an extraordinary mystery, of which we are an inseparable part. It exists as an experience and not a set of ideas. This is a critical and guiding principle.

THE KEY LESSONS

These are the key lessons, taught as the experience is experienced by participants. 

THE STATE OF CURRENT SIGHT

An observational assessment of where we are in respect to how we see. A bringing to the front the unseen components of current sightedness.

BEYOND THE OPAQUE GLASS

The consequence of the conscious and unconscious mind with respect to the inculturated lens through which we see each other, and an examination and experience of the components of clear sightedness.

HABITUAL ACTION & REACTION

The bringing into awareness of the habit of our (often unconscious) action and reaction.

THE GRAND HUMAN PREDICAMENT

The development of an understanding of why we knowingly or unknowingly hide from sight. And what we might do about this, for ourselves and in the service of others.

THE NATURE OF CONNECTEDNESS

Human connectedness exists. It always has. It doesn’t need to be worked towards. It simply needs to be noticed. Its felt embodied experience is one of the significant pieces of this Immersion.

THE CONSCIOUS FIELD

There comes a point where one realizes that one is actually not the witness. It is at this point that experience shifts. We shall be immersed in this profound interior experience.

THE NATURE OF NO-THING

The setting down of all things. The act of surrender without it being an act. An experience that has to be experienced. Beyond the description of words. The camera works sublimley well in bringing a distinct felt sense of awareness to this.

THE SPACE BETWEEN

In the space between us exists opinion born of belief and requirement born of need. They are mostly imperceptible to the naked eye and obstruct us from seeing another. We each possess an innate capacity to see past these obstructions, resulting in the experience of human in-sight, awareness, connectedness and a direct perception of truth.

THE 3 PROFOUND ELEMENTS OF SEEING

To see another, to allow oneself to be seen (without which one cannot know how to truly see another) and to become increasingly aware of oneself (to see oneself). 3 profound elements. We shall experiment and experience.

OBLIGATIONS & UNREQUESTED ACTS

We can set it all down for a moment in time. Elements seen, and previously unseen. Including the holding of space, be-ing and more. A deep understanding of the nature of the central principle in this Method – nothing – is a hinge point for its success.

THE GLORIOUS IGNORAMUS

The visceral experience of realizing that you can never know for sure brings with it a liberation which is the territory in which another can be seen. This is our territory.

THE CHANGE IN ORIGIN POINT

There is a moment in time at which the origin point of our experience turns. We shall be experimenting with this profound still point.

INTUITIVE INTELLIGENCE

An exploration of the Intuitive Intelligence brought on by the state of witnessing, and a mapping of its profound implications in the field of client work, and one’s own life.

WORDS SPOKEN IN THE FLOW STATE

Words are spoken from either one of two origin points. Understand where, why and how and experiment with the flow state.

ELICITING THE CONSCIOUS VOICE

The conscious voice has a quality and tone that is perceptable. We will learn what this is and how to elicit it in service of conscious work.

INNER VIEW CAMERA METHOD

There is a significant place for the camera in witnessing, when video evidence of an important encounter is required (e.g. human rights, coaching, therapy). We shall  be identifying the physical and energetic components of using a camera in this profoundly unique way, be it in-person or over Zoom.

This includes a full run through of the Inner View Camera Method.

THE SPECIFICS OF YOUR FIELD

A section on the specific use, experience and benefits in your field, be it coaching, human rights, conflict resolution or any human attention field listed above.

YOUR PLACE IN THIS WORLD

An examination of your place in this world, and all that may come with clear sightedness.

THREE PROGRAMS. DIFFERENT POINTS OF FOCUS. SAME UNDERLYING WORK AND METHOD

Personal Development Program

ONE – FOCUS : YOUR LIFE and its PURPOSE – the 4-Day Inner View Immersion is focused on the participant’s own life experience and an underlying transformational shift in awareness. This is currently running in UK : [ click for details ]

Professional Development Programs

TWO (this program) – FOCUS : YOUR WORK WITH ‘CLIENTS’ and eliciting/capturing AUTHENTICITY – the 3-Day Inner View WITNESSING Program is focused on the demonstrable skill of Witnessing and the capacity to elicit and capture (on film, in-person or internet) authenticity. This is currently happening in UK and the USA (and Virtual tba).

THREE – FOCUS : YOUR LEADERSHIP and a paradigm shift in where you lead from – the 4-Day Inner Frontier Leadership Program. Specifically for leaders, and a partnership between Nic’s Inner View work and the work of Zukin Leadership. Next date is in October in the USA : [ click for details ]

The underlying work and method are similar in each Program. A core aware experience is had in all Programs, with personal time in front of the Inner View camera being at the heart of the transformational experience. But in each the focus is different and therefore the reason for experiencing.

If in doubt, we would be happy to talk you through the Programs.

note: it would be possible to attend both the Witnessing and Immersion Programs in the UK in September as they run back to back. A total 7-Day Immersion in the experience.
