The Primal Happiness Show

This week's show is with Chris Morris. Chris is a well-known personal coach, consultant and a meditation teacher and has spent decades exploring a tonne of different self-help techniques and ‘thought-based’ approaches, including meditation, NLP, the three principles, A Course in Miracles, and Byron Katie’s The Work.

One of many interesting facts about Chris is that successfully challenged the British government in the European Court of Human Rights to secure equal age of consent for sexual activity between men.

In this show, Chris and Lian explored the (massive!) topics of politics, religion and spirituality (and more)... and the way we so often get caught up in dogmatic beliefs, how we don't see that we have, and how much of the conflict between humans is the result of that. This seemed like an apt topic post-Brexit but really it would be apt at any time.

If you believe in, well... anything then this is the show for you! ;)

I’d love to know what YOU think about this week's show. Let’s carry on the conversation…  please leave a comment below.

What you'll learn from this episode:

  • Doing and being... Chris talked about how we can fall into the belief that life is simply about 'being' and we then miss that we're always doing something, our being comes from what we do (and vice versa). When we understand that we can make different choices about what we do.
  • Dogma vs Catma... believing dogma is about believing a principle or set of principles laid down by an authority as incontrovertibly true. Catma is about understanding a principle... but just for now. Continuing to explore, to ask, to test is what allows us to be less dogmatic and more catmatic.
  • Explore who you would be, if you didn't have the background you have, if you hadn't had the conditioning you had, if you didn't have the beliefs... it isn't about answering this question, it's about exploring the place you would need to be in order to answer it.
