Episodes

Thursday Feb 08, 2024

This podcast series explores a game-changing understanding of the human mind that operates ''before psychology'' - that exponentially increases the performance, resourcefulness and well-being for any individual or organisation.
In this episode, Piers chats with corporate coach Dominic Scaffidi. Dominic and Piers did three episodes together back in 2020 exploring 'What is behind the magic of transformational coaching' and now they get back together to see what has been evolving in their own groundings and work.
This episode explores what is truly transformative about coaching from this understanding of Before Psychology and Quality of Mind. It is a deep and sometimes technical conversation about the nature of consciousness, self-limitation, and the essence of being.
They explore the idea of achieving versus allowing, noting that individuals can only experience the expansive nature of their being by dropping their resistance. They discuss how people often look for solutions outside themselves, forgetting that their real identity is infinite. The conversation also includes examples from business to illustrate their points effectively.
This Episode Covers:
The only challenge we ever have in business is our own mind
The appearance of solidity and limitation. There is nothing solid really to be dealing with
A simple business example of how we innocently look in the wrong place
The confusion between how it appears success is created and what is actually going on 
The utilitarian usefulness of definitions
The desire for more to overcome the illusion of scarcity
The nuance between allowing and revealing
The limitlessness to what is available
Why people really come to coaching, what we are all seeking

In this episode, Piers chats with Clare Dimond, a wonderful return guest to the show, and this time the topic is about free will and what our reality in any moment is 'showing us', and the availability of the  'learning extravaganza' that is available as the human experience.

What we mean by witness and the innocent mistake in what witnessing means .
Distinguishing between 'isness' and conditioning.

This podcast series explores the 'before psychology' game-changing understanding of the human mind that can exponentially increase the performance, resourcefulness and well-being for any individual or organisation.
This episode is taken from the podcast series What is a Good Life? where Mark McCartney is on a mission to explore the answer to that wonderful question. He ha already interviewed 150+ people, and now asks some excellent questions about the Before Psychology approach and Quality of Mind.  If you’re frustrated with your personal development endeavours or you find yourself clinging too tightly to your self-identity, at the cost of more fully connecting with others and life itself, this episode offers plenty of food for thought. 
Our discussion covers:
Piers takes us on his journey, from exploring counselling, NLP, and other modalities to direct path non-duality. 
We discuss the challenges often faced in personal development rooted in self-identification, breaking free from our addiction to focussing on our psychology, transcending the confines of the mind while fully embracing our emotions
How ultimately it about revealing a sense ease that can be experienced in life when we let go of our attachment to the separate self.
We discuss and explore the 'oneness' that you've perhaps long suspected, but resisted embracing, that can have a profound effect on how you perceive life.

This podcast series explores the 'before psychology' game-changing understanding of the human mind that can exponentially increase the performance, resourcefulness and well-being for any individual or organisation.
This episode we talk to regular contributor and friend of the show Katrijn Van Oudheusden on the day her new book is launched - Beyond Illusion: Exploring the Six Illusions that Cause Our Mistaken Belief in a Separate Self.' This is Katrijn's second book, and it lays down the foundation to exploring the illusion we are all innocently hoodwinked by - that we are a separate self. This book pieces together with insights from neuroscience and philosophy evidence that both directly and indirectly points us to recognise the true nature of what we are, and consciousness as the fabric of reality itself.
 
Our discussion covers:
- How come the second book is really the first book - foundations .v. implications
- How the book is aimed at those people with an inkling there must be a different way seeing the world and operating
- The relevance in today's world of need to point to something to 'keep the conceptual mind happy' before people will fall awake to something more 'spiritual'
- A brief explanation of the 6 illusions - and how they progress from most accessible to recognise to more hidden and harder to realise
- The relevance of chapter 7 - introducing the importance step of actual inquiring into this directly and for yourself
- What could happen if you read this book - the start of your journey

This podcast series explores the 'before psychology' game-changing understanding of the human mind that can exponentially increase the performance, resourcefulness and well-being for any individual or organisation.
This episode is taken from an interview on the Future Fuzz podcast. Justin Campbell is a digital marketing expert who educates and inspires people on the best way to stay relevant and futureproof on their marketing and e-commerce campaigns . The episode serves as useful relevant introduction to Quality of Mind, as Justin had listened to one episode from the QoM podcast, and thought it was fascinating and wanted to know more...
 
The discussion covers:
- Do we loose connection compared to when we were babies?
- How the appearance that we are a separate limited self arises and causes our suffering
- How we are all the same, but that doesn't mean we have to condone all behaviours 
- How to use feelings to our advantage  -what is going on?
- What does this understanding mean for contemporary societal issues, like mental health or dementia 
- An example of how low Quality of Mind might turn up in a meeting at work
- What is the approach for Quality of Mind in businesses? Going from upstream 'before psychology' self inquiry, to day to day business relevance
- The most common comment people make - 'I wish I had seen this before' - how this understanding gets better the more and more you see it!
