Given at the Bristol Psychotherapy Association to a small group of 50 counsellors and therapists on 2 June 2014. This is an edited version 36 minutes long.

I really enjoyed the evening. It was a very warm, open and intelligent group. After the talk we had an engaging and useful discussion that wasn’t filmed. We continued to explore the spectrum between
Relieving Suffering < ——-> Enabling Wake Up

And we also looked at the power dynamics between the helper and the helped. The ideal spiritual model is one of being alongside one’s companion, a fellow traveller.
