Where's Your Head?
An audio programme of three bundled mp3s, to clear your head of doubt and anxiety, to amplify your awareness and accelerate your perception.
Is thinking necessary? Is intelligence cleverness? What happens in the body when we become psychologically weak and insecure? What can we do to be mentally stronger? How can we make the brain more efficient? We can stop overthinking and mental stress if we can correct neck posture.
Clive Tempest speaks about intelligence, awareness, consciousness, the mind, the intellect, the brain, thought and thinking, and why even the cleverest people might benefit from having an empty head.
Part One: Amplifying your awareness. 46 mins
Part Two: A meditative exercise to consciously integrate your awareness with your inner space. 26 mins
Part Three: Two dialogues about speculative thinking, analytical thought, the intellect and how to trust your intelligence. 46 mins
This programme is based on a video conference call to a group in Finland, 15 August 2020. The cost for the bundle of three mp3s - two hours of listening in total - £15.

'In Chi Gung we use movements of the body to activate our nervous system so that we can begin to detect the entry of pure energy, or chi, from external space into our inner space. Nei Gung is the process of working with that chi once it's inside the body - working with it to clarify, to empty, to discharge anything that we're holding onto from the outer world.'
Nei Gung: One, Two, Three and Four The primary conscious connection, scanning the energy body, drawing chi from the breath, the seated presence, dropping the mask of personality, working with the chi to free sadness and anxiety in the upper burner.
£30 for four mp3s
Nei Gung: Five, Six and Seven Increased awareness of energy circuits in the body, opening up inner space, working with the power of chi to deal with reservations and dread, breathing from the middle burner, resonance, delegating the breathing to accumulated chi, the residence of chi in the lower burner, the fire that consumes the past, the Rod of Authority, the Ring of Unity and the Orb of Power.
£24 for three mp3s
