    05 Dancing With Wisdom: Managing Our Ego

    26/04/2021 Duración: 26min

    Do you have an ego problem? A few years ago I had an argument with my wife, Sally and I was challenged by how my ego was actually making things worse. But, before we get to that, what do we actually mean by ego? When we talk of someone having an ego, we're more than just stating a fact and we're certainly not offering them a compliment! The truth is we all have an ego. On our quest for wisdom why can ego cause such great problems in our own lives and the lives of others? Is there such a thing as a healthy amount of ego? If so we will need much wisdom to get that balance right! On this podcast do join my cohost Elliott Frisby and I as we discuss: How do I use my ego to help rather than hinder me? How ego is a problem both when I think too much and also too little of myself. Why the most dangerous thing in the world is unhealthy pride. What healthy pride looks like. The connection between a healthy ego and our toes! How do I develop the wisdom to recognise when my ego is getting out of control?

    04 Dancing With Wisdom: Wisdom for Life

    09/04/2021 Duración: 24min

    How do you navigate through life so as to not just survive, but actually thrive and even dance through the confusion and mess?  That is much easier said than done! More than we care to admit life is so often full of challenges and complex situations where we can feel at the end of our resources. How do we navigate our way through for the greater good of ourselves and others? In this podcast conversation we discuss the subject of wisdom for life. It's only a small subject to cover in 25 minutes! :) All around us we see disordered lives that arise from a lack of wisdom. That can start as a sense of disappointment or general frustration before leading, if unchecked, on to fear, dread, shame, worry, anxiety, stress, burnout, depression and even suicide. As a psychiatrist I have sadly seen those consequences in many people's lives. Our restless hearts are constantly looking for security and comfort, while our questioning minds can feel they are drowning in too much information. The result can be disordered live

  • 03: Wisdom For The Mind

    03: Wisdom For The Mind

    24/03/2021 Duración: 26min

    We live in the age of information. Perhaps it is more accurate to say we are drowning in the information constantly presented to us. In previous generations it took 1000 years for human knowledge to double. Currently human knowledge doubles every 12 hours! Is it any surprise that we struggle to keep up? But our minds and souls need so much more than just information. We need wisdom. Our restless minds struggle to make sense of life with all the information coming at us from all sorts of directions. We are so much more than our minds. We are body, mind and spirit that are interconnected and inter-related in marvellous and complex ways. On this podcast conversation do come and join my co-host Elliott Frisby and myself as we discuss: Our fundamental need for human connection that technology can only partly satisfy. How do we create the space in our lives to remain focussed on what is truly important and not be distracted by the latest and loudest? The importance of silence and solitude to handle negat

    02 Dancing With Wisdom: Wisdom for the Heart

    04/03/2021 Duración: 25min

    Understanding wisdom is not a one-off event, but the quest of a lifetime. A quest is long search for something difficult to find or an attempt to achieve something difficult. A quest is different from an adventure. In a adventure, you choose to go out on an exciting journey. It spices up your life and then you come back home to pick up where you left off. By contrast a quest is not something you choose. Rather, the quest chooses you. You are called to it because of what is going to be demanded of you. In many ways the person you are at the beginning never really comes back from a quest. Either you die on the quest or, if you do come back, you are so fundamentally changed that you are not the same person as when you set out. Understanding wisdom is something of a quest. The more you learn the more you want to know. It is also incredibly life-enhancing and enriching. This second podcast conversation with my co-host Elliott Frisby is about wisdom for the heart. We discuss the circumstances around the sudden

  • 01 Dancing With Wisdom: Why Wisdom?

    01 Dancing With Wisdom: Why Wisdom?

    15/02/2021 Duración: 25min

    From Making Sense of Life to Dancing With Wisdom! I'm delighted to announce Season 2 Episode 1!  On Series 2 Episode 1 of the Dancing With Wisdom Podcast we explore the question of Why Wisdom? Do come and join my new podcast host, Elliott Frisby and I as we explore this question in detail. Elliott gives us the dictionary definition of wisdom as "The ability to make sensible decisions and give good advice because of the experience and knowledge that you have." In our conversation we explore why wisdom is much more than that simple definition. Instead wisdom is about connecting us to timeless truths in a world which we find is increasingly cynical, confusing, complex and chaotic. The explosion of choices around us only adds to this. Indeed it could be argued that we are the most over-informed and under-reflective civilisation in human history. There are three questions we are going to seek to unpack in this and future conversations: Why do some people grow and develop in their lives in incredible ways?
