Personal development meetup

Throughout the lock down period I'll be running a free monthly discussion and inner work group on the last Wednesday evening of the month. My philosophy has always been that effective self-growth must be centred in an embodied and ecologically-grounded context whereby each of our steps towards inner well-being are held in both personal and collective awareness.

You can learn more about the approach and group by attending an initial session below:

Consciousness is perhaps the least understood of mental phenomena. Transpersonal psychologists have traditionally engaged with the issue of consciousness via hierarchical representation by levels and via spiral-representation of broader self-schemes. Not enough attention has been given to the qualia nature of conscious experience and how self-awareness is a critical dimension of human development and unfoldment.
