About the Author

Engaging With Engagement

By Dr. Keith Beasley | Spirituality

‘Engagement’ is the current name of the game. In Education, for example, students need to be fully engaged, and research staff need to be engaging with the wider community. Excellent. It’s common sense, but useful to highlight such needs and to commit to satisfying them. But . . .

From my observations, engagement is in danger of becoming just the latest in-thing that achieves very little. Why? Largely because it will be treated as the latest flavour of the month, in a short-term programme with a well-meaning intent and appealing words . . . but without really understanding what’s actually required.

Ripe Bananas!

By Dr. Keith Beasley | Nutrition

When does a banana, or any other fruit for that matter, become ripe enough to eat? And at what point do they become over-ripe: too ripe to eat? I ask because both my partner and I have witnessed what to us is a huge waste: fruit that to us is still perfectly edible, but which other people are throwing away! Bananas are the case in point.

The One Spirit of Brexit

By Dr. Keith Beasley | Emotional Vitality

How can we best stay positive and hopeful during the next 2 years (and perhaps longer) during the Brexit process? How can we all, each and every one of us, play our part in smoothing the process and bringing about the best result for everyone: Brits and fellow Europeans alike?

So as we attempt to bring peace, health and inner harmony into our personal lives, how can we tap into this true spirit of love and shared humanity?

Reiki in the Workplace

By Dr. Keith Beasley | Emotional Vitality , Spirituality

Beyond Thought Today is about bringing together the conventional and spiritual worlds. Here’s a great example: At the time I took my Second Degree Reiki, 20 years ago, I was working in the electronics industry, on the quality and reliability of the very latest silicon chips . . . such as were used in the first digital telephone exchange (remember BT’s Buzby?). A world away, you might think, from Reiki.

A Cultural Chasm?

By Dr. Keith Beasley | Emotional Vitality , Spirituality

As the US faces the uncertain reality of its election result and Britain pursues Brexit, whatever that means in practice, so our nations may seem divided. Both campaigns were bitter and divisive. Although, on both sides of the pond, the winners have called for unity, healing and working together, within the hearts and minds of many Brits and Americans, this intent doesn’t seem realistic.
