Listen To Your Body!

By Dr. Keith Beasley | Videos

It’s all to do with side-stepping the rational mind with its theories and beliefs, and rising above our emotional mind, which all too often reacts through fear. Tuning into our bodies requires connecting into a deep part of us: that bit that really knows what we need . . . at all levels!

Let Go Of Nagging Thoughts

By Dr. Keith Beasley | Spirituality

Does your mind keep wandering? Do you find it hard to concentrate? Do you get easily stressed or confused? In all of these cases, you would benefit from becoming more mindful, more present in the moment. Combining the essence of spiritual practice with ideas from neuroscience and practical experience gained in the workplace serves to highlight the benefits of mindfulness.

Whole Person, Whole World

By Dr. Keith Beasley | Spirituality

Do you feel part of the world around you? Do you feel that you are a human being like everybody else? Or do you feel isolated, separate? There are certainly times when I feel very much on my own, that no-one understands me. But then, eventually, it will dawn on me that I’m probably just as guilty of not understanding . . . and that I could, actually, make a bit more of an effort to understand.

The Half-life of Facts

By Dr. Keith Beasley | Spirituality

Last night I was watching the BBC QI programme, with Stephen Fry. It’s a very popular show in the UK, though I don’t know if you get it in other parts of the world. It’s a wonderful mix between ‘factual’ and comedy, where Fry’s guests discuss whether a given apparent fact is true or not.

Innocence Lost, Wisdom Gained

By Dr. Keith Beasley | Emotional Vitality

Last night I watched the recent excellent BBC production of Laurie Lee’s Cider with Rosie. Not only a brilliant film, but thought provoking. The innocence of an English upbringing between the wars. What a contrast to today: youngsters starting school aged 4 to 5 these days are more worldly-wise, more aware of many facets of human life (good and bad) than I was after I’d finished college at 21!

There’s No Denying It . . .

By Dr. Keith Beasley | Spirituality

That powerful 1999 film East is East was shown on UK TV the other day: I’ve just watched it. Stunned. Timely. Timely because I’m in the throes of developing my approach to Emotional Intelligence (EI) and this painful story of deep cultural clashes highlights many of the issues prevalent in describing and improving our EI: our ability (or not) to relate to others at a deep and meaningful level.

The Wars We All Fight

By Dr. Keith Beasley | Spirituality

“Be Alert . .. Britain needs lerts!” I was reminded of this the other day whilst seeking the advice of my local computer shop: faced with a new PC I was re-installing all my favourite programs and, in downloading the Firefox browser had inadvertently also downloaded some ad-ware: persistent pop-up ads.

How To Make Friends With Time

By Dr. Keith Beasley | Spirituality

In our 24-7-365 world it can be hard not to want everything now . . . or sooner. Everybody seem to be rushed off their feet . . . except those who find that times drags terribly! How can time be so changeable? Maybe it is not time, but us: maybe the time has come to reflect on the nature of time and to rethink our relationship with it.
