The Loss of Inner Sense and The Shadow

Friday, November 13th, 2020

This audio mp3 product is taken from Wisdom, The Course, and recorded with a student of the course.

The realisation that one has a ‘Shadow’, or ‘Shadow Baggage’ is a profound revelation in a person’s life.

The prior notion that we are living and engaging in life with the use of all faculties, attributes and resources available to us is replaced by the awareness that (typically) a significant portion of who we are, our true personality and what we are capable of has been inadvertently shut down.

The opportunity in this epiphany is that we may begin to reclaim all of those aspects and attributes of ourselves; something which is the bedrock of all Kissing Consciousness facilitation activity, and which is also known as ‘Shadow Work’, after the Swiss psychoanalyst, Carl Jung’s term, ‘the Shadow’.

This audio is the student support dialogue for Module Four of Kissing Consciousness Founder, James Blacker’s, Online Wisdom Course.

“Although I was aware I was living from conditioned limitation and repression of huge parts of my personality by age 23/24, it wasn’t until age 34/35 that I became aware that what I’d previously thought was me operating from my whole self was actually me operating from a largely false, shut down self. This came after engaging in specific Shadow exercises. This typical experience is an awakening of the true self.” – James Blacker

Sadly, the majority of people choose not to acknowledge their own Shadow, both to their own detriment and to the detriment of others.

The Wisdom Diet eBook

Friday, November 13th, 2020

“The problem isn’t wanting to eat chocolate cake, but being willing to eat chocolate cake for the wrong reasons.” – James Blacker

The Wisdom Diet (2007) is a psychological approach to weight management that identifies the five disempowering aspects of conventional dieting and turns them on their head so that they work for you. 

Based in the healthy and wise approach of listening to the body, The Wisdom Diet guides us to distinguish between the needs of the mind and the needs of the body. If the need for food is in the mind it can never be satisfied by food, so by making this distinction we can empower our approach.

The five main things that are wrong with dieting are;

  • Denial
  • Forced exercise
  • You can fail them; there’s no guarantee of results
  • It takes time
  • And you can quit them.

There’s a psychological way to turn all of those negative-seeming characteristics to your advantage.

Strength for Life

Tuesday, October 27th, 2020

At the time when I interviewed David for this audio on ageing and strength for life, in 2002, he had just completed a thousand kilometre challenge cycling around Vietnam in temperatures of 90 degrees and 90% humidity; a fearsome challenge for anyone made more remarkable by the fact that David was 62 at the time.

Here, the trainer of elite athletes and Founder of the National Rehabilitation Centre for the Paralysed shares his unique insights to help us avoid the artificial barriers and false limitations society conditions us into.

With a philosophy rooted strongly in the practice of listening to the body, David explains to us how we can optimize our lifespan and approach ageing from an informed and empowered point of view, giving examples and insights he has come across, from Inuits in the Arctic to tribes people in Borneo.

Harnessing The Ever-Available Faculty of Genius

Wednesday, October 21st, 2020

This audio mp3 product is taken from Wisdom, The Course, and recorded with a student of the course.

If you are not already harnessing your own capacity for genius – and proactively so – an obvious question is “Why not?”

Quite likely you have been taught by your society that you don’t posses the capacity for genius, that it is something bestowed only on a rare few.

This is unhelpful information, however, and so by releasing those self-limiting beliefs you may be able to reclaim your own capacity for genius.

You may have also been incorrectly taught that the faculty of genius only applies to a certain few, narrow aspects of life, such as academia, art or sport. Actually, it relates to all areas of life, and to each and every moment.

In this audio, which is also the student support dialogue for Module Nineteen of Kissing Consciousness Founder, James Blacker’s, Online Wisdom Course, you will learn what genius is – and what it isn’t – and how to harness it for your own benefit.

The Keys to Happiness

Friday, April 3rd, 2020

I love this interview; the classic interview from 2004 on Happiness. When David Heard and I had our preparatory pre-record discussion prior to making the recording, outside at a cafe in Hampstead, there were people listening in from other tables and gathering round, such was the passion and authenticity with which David was discussing the topics involved.

This essential ‘Call to Self’ cuts through the nonsense and self-defeating approval seeking that modern life has been caught up in.

By being true to ourselves we can make choices that fulfill our heart’s desire and honour our potential; not the potential that someone else deems we ‘should’ pursue, but our own intrinsic, internal sense of what’s important to us.
