The Primal Happiness Show

This week's show is with Steve James. Steve travels internationally teaching somatic practices, meditation, as well as leading explorations in contemplative & relational realms. Known for his direct, grounded approach and his dedication to first-hand research, he has extensive experience in elite athletic performance, contemplative and spiritual disciplines, the arts, extreme outdoor survival, and human behaviour.

Steve’s unique range of experiences and understanding of human behaviour, high performance, spirituality, and interpersonal relationships is highly sought after by leading figures at the highest levels of the arts, entertainment, and business. In his private client practice he specialises in the unique interpersonal and strategic challenges faced by very successful and highly visible individuals. Ongoing clients include Oscar-winning actors, multi Grammy winning musicians, CEO’s, and fund managers.

Steve is the creator of the Movement Koan Method® and the host of the Guru Viking Podcast.

In this show, Steve turned the tables on Lian and interviewed her! This was completely unplanned but they decided to indulge Steve's curiosity about Lian being autistic, so he asked her a whole raft of brilliant questions including about her own experiences growing up, the reason she went for a diagnosis and what it's provided to her, as well as questions about the broader topic of autism and neurodivergence generally.

Due to the spontaneous and personal nature of this episode, in which Lian was answering the questions in the moment and from her own experience, she wasn't intending to speak for all people with neurodivergences or the myriad of different experiences they might have that differ from her own. Each person is unique and whilst there might be some commonalities spoken of there will also be things that only apply or makes sense to Lian. Take only what's useful or feels true 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:

  • If you have listened to this and suspect you're neurodivergent then trust yourself whether going for a diagnosis will be helpful for you - it's not essential, self-diagnosis is completely valid

This week's show is with Lynne Forrest. Lynne is regarded as a non-traditional psychotherapist who has been in private practice for over twenty-five years, is widely known as a Reality Guide and Personal Growth Mentor for her empathy, compassion and her no-nonsense approach in dealing with life issues. She uses ancient spiritual principles to help those who struggle to find their way into right alignment with themselves and their life purpose.

Her original work in recognizing victim consciousness as a widespread epidemic with its own set of definable and recognizable characteristics has revolutionized her approach with clients and transformed the lives of many. She has developed a unique understanding of how the mind works and ways to liberate it from the throes of what she calls the “victim mind.”

Lynne came up through the ranks of experiential learning rather than the more traditional academic route and has sought and found practical ways of applying those principles for immediate positive change. She out in the mental health field in the early seventies, hired and trained by an HMO (health maintenance organization) in social work and mental health. She has been in the field of personal growth ever since - moving to the addictions field in the early eighties after successfully transforming her own addictive lifestyle into a more creative and productive one. Lynne has run her own private practice since 1985.

As a perpetual student of life and consciousness, Lynne has devoted herself to studying with masters of various disciplines. Her first teacher was her mother, Estelle Sanford, a student of metaphysics, who was herself an intuitive that drew upon her inner knowing for wisdom and spiritual truths.

In this show, a part two to their first conversation about the Victim Triangle, Lynne and Lian spoke about what observer consciousness is and how we can move into it, the Universal Laws and a daily practice to sit down and meet with your higher self.

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:

  • What's real is what's eternal - as soon as we begin to move into the space of contemplating what's eternal, we naturally move into the higher frequency of observer consciousness.
  • Looking for the meaning we are experiencing what we're experiencing something, to see why we might have chosen it, is like a secret portal into seeing the story we're creating and why
  • I loved how Lynne spoke about meeting with our higher self in the way we might arrange to meet with a secret lover... what a gloriously evocative invitation! How will you meet with yours?

This week's show is with Daniel Fox.  Daniel Fox is the author and founder of Unfold Fest which aims to build a community of leaders who contributes to the world with big hearts and brilliant minds. Unfold Fest gatherings are a unique chance to make life-changing connections and uncover new possibilities and partnerships with like-minded people who are passionate about growth.

In this show, Daniel and Lian spoke about creating change in the world from ecstasy or differently said, contribution from bliss. We explored why this is the sovereign (versus Victim) way of creation even though it can look like bypassing and selfishness, and why it's likely to create the results and solutions in your life and in the world at large that you actually desire.

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:

  • Creating change from a joyous place is not only an enjoyable way to live, it actually results in creating change that is effective, even joyous, too!
  • Most of the time when we seek to create change, though completely well-intentioned, comes from one of the positions on the Victim Triangle, it often begins in the Rescuer though we'll migrate round to the other positions too as we always do. Anything created from the Victim Triangle can only bring results on the Victim Triangle.
  • People will likely judge you as being selfish or spiritually bypassing when you choose to create from an overflowing cup - this comes with the territory and whilst it can be challenging, it doesn't mean you need to sink back onto the Victim Triangle.
  • Find the others - people who are creating and living in this way too. Daniel's Unfold Fest is a perfect place to begin!

In today’s show Richard and Namaste and Lian explored the seeming diverging topics of spirituality and wealth, why they're so often seen as mutually exclusive, and how actually they can be in deep symbiosis of each other.

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:

  • I loved what they said about creating a storehouse to pass onto the next generations... instead of passing on wisdom but not wealth... why wouldn't we want to pass on the richest storehouse of everything we can so they can grab the baton and continue the great work?
  • Wealth opens up possibilities for us to have specific spiritual experiences we're being called to and to embody a deeper expression of Divine Love in the world
  • Richard's analogy of the cosmic doughnut is fabulous - when we focus on the inner ring we have power to make choices about our life
  • If you trust your soul then you can also trust yourself to have wealth and make beautiful choices about what to do with it

Resources and stuff that we spoke about:

  • The episode in which we spoke about fairness - link to last episode
  • The Infinite Couple
  • The Sanctum of Feminine Transformation: A living Feminine Embodiment Mystery School and Alchemic Wisdom Tradition for women to learn embodiment and emanation of Femininity
  • The Dyad Paradigm: The DYAD is the most fundamental universal and powerful Unit of measure in the Universe. Nothing sentient is born here without the involvement of this Union. The Newest New in Consciousness, the MOVEMENT that is arising as an expression of Infinite Intelligence playing an Infinitely Individuated Coupling Game.
