The Soul Biographies Inner View Method is a way. The Art and Science of Witnessing. A way of eliciting authenticity, truth and intuitive intelligence. It’s a profound interview method. Interview + Surrender. Used with or without a camera.
It’s a powerful way of capturing conscious authentic organizational and human stories. And to bring immediate human connection into groups (using the camera & live image projection).
It’s Professional/Vocational Development learned through the visceral experience of a deep personal journey, and an invitation to transform the way in which you engage your clients, yourself and the world.
Developed meticulously over the last 15 years by Soul Biographies Creator Nic Askew, a former Explorer turned 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, Business and Sales Relationships, Conflict Resolution, Hospice, Health and Youth Work, Personal and Organizational Development and More.
‘… the profundity of all of this is that you’ll learn by way of a visceral, practical and enduring experience how to see another, how to be seen, then how to see and accept oneself.’
This audio piece points to the heart of Inner View and its ability to have someone speak the truth out loud.
The Inner View Immersion Program. Delivered over 5 Days. Small intentionally put together groups. Learning through the visceral experience in front of the camera, behind the camera, as a close up witness to the process of others and the observation of one’s own experience on film.

Introductory Pre-Note: ‘For more than a decade I’ve held back on committing words to what goes on in the witnessing process that happens so readily under these very specific circumstances. Recently this changed, as I was compelled to describe both the physical and metaphysical elements of this far from usual Method and its education. And whilst I have chosen to use words such as curriculum, competencies and principles, I know that this way of seeing is awash with the surrender of control and an extraordinary mystery, of which we are an inseparable part. The knowing of this is most probably the point, and as such the education is rooted firmly in its experience. This should not live as an idea, and the Inner View experience has set out to avoid the very real and human danger of its intellectualization.’ Nic Askew.

Words of Jane Douglas, Coaching Company CEO and Inner View Method Program participant.
“The room quietens as another film subject emerges deliberately from the assembled group. 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. But words that so often, have been previously spoken.
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 subject’s 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 being spoken’.
They are not speaking ‘to’ or ‘at’ the world in expectation of something in return, as is so often the case. There are words. And space. And an unbridled vulnerability of such profound importance that the audience cannot turn away. It is utter strength in physical form.
Here, there is nowhere to hide. Here there is no need to hide. Here there is the letting go of control. The control that kept us from seeing one another. And from seeing ourselves. Here, for this moment in time there is Freedom. There is Liberation and Insight. And previously undiscovered Genius. Here truth has been spoken out loud, and we have each been changed from somewhere deep inside.”
