The Light Inside

The Light Inside

Our program explores the darkest corners of the human mind and reveals how our unconscious patterns play a pivotal role in our ability to make decisions as individuals and as a society. Lingering just below the surface of our conscious minds are patterns of thought, feelings, emotions, and motivations. We aren't immediately aware of them, but they wield a powerful influence over how we behave and react to events in our everyday lives. In our quest for self-realization, we're all on a journey to discover that light inside, the beacon that guides us back to our truest, most authentic selves.

Narcissism.

Maybe it's one of the most misunderstood psychological disorders of modern society.

It is with an increased frequency, we hear such refrains - “He was a total narcissist”—but was he?

What does that really mean? And are these assumptions often correct?

We’ve all experienced difficult relationships - from our significant others to our boss at work. In the relationship FOG of narcissistic, abusive, or other toxic behav...

Pain.

Our emotional reactivity frequently causes it to surface as the emotional turmoil we feel. You’ve perhaps heard this clique, and often worn phrase - “We can’t grow without pain; or maybe - it’s discomfort”?

But, what if we can and DOfrequently grow; in states that exist free of this existentially created and self-inflicted state of pain and suffering?

    When J. Stamatelos confronted his anxious insecurity; he discovered the underlying power of self-acceptance and the vicious cycle of validating oneself through the love and acceptance of others - creating a central conflict between self-validation and external validation.

    Screen time.

    It’s the new currency utilized when measuring how our children spend much of their time interacting with the world.


    With the holiday season upon us, many of us will be giving the gift of technical access to the young ones throughout our lives. Spreading accessibility to gadgets, games, and even communication or learning devices.


    Yet, with this gift comes empowering access to a connected world of data, influence, and ...

    Well-being.

    Recent research has revealed that this often-overlooked, yet essential element is a core value of personal growth and sustainable success.

    Somatic coherence is an evidence-based framework that dramatically changes how we manage our day-to-day stress - it’s also a necessary piece of our well-being puzzle.

    We receive regular emotional signals from the soma - meaning of the body. Emotion is the word we give to a synergy of...

    Blind spots.

    We each have them. In the context of personal change, why is it we often settle for "good enough?” Our past emotional traumas amplify deflection and uncomfortable avoidance in most of us. with psychological blind spots that everyone else can see but us.

    So just how do we find these answers?

    Yes…At the behest of alienation, testing the current trends, harsh judgments, losing listeners, and the endless guffaw of our peers… It’s true that we gleefully offer a rather playful and hardy - Bah, humbug!

    Space.

    It once was viewed as the final frontier of our advancement as a species. Then began the dawning of a new age - the digital revolution.

    Motion.

    It implies movement. With all motion inferring a dynamic “mover”.

    Matter is dormant, yet humans are an active power - a free will; so it stands to reason, there must be within them an immaterial principle.

    Knowledge.

    It’s one of the only resources that grows as we share it. Yet sometimes, that’s not so easy. Why do we sometimes find it so difficult to share our knowledge?

    And furthermore - why does at times it seem so challenging to accept the valid input and constructive criticism of others?

    Intuition.

    That still small voice inside that sometimes whispers…while at others - it roars.

    Einstein once shared with us:

    “I believe in intuitions and inspirations; sometimes feeling that I am right - yet often, I know that I am. “

    How is it that we have come to so faithfully trust this inner sense of knowing, and how do we more effectively utilize it?

    Whether it's crucial business mergers or lunch decisions, we often assume t...

    Your inner voice.

    That light inside - the being that we are being. Society and our daily interactions seem to increasingly focus on exploring the concept of "authenticity." Even going so far as to question - Does a self exist at all?

    As a result, we are left scrambling to find a meaningful way to define when someone is acting genuinely and authentically. What does this seemingly mystical and confounding thing look like and ...

    Our bodies; for eons - we’ve been reminded to treat them like temples. Yet our view of that temple - can often be distorted, misconceived, and even downright inaccurate.

    Our Character is often said to define both who and what we are as human beings. And still, how we characterize ourselves, is generalized by unhealthy ideals guided by our generational opinions on body stereotyping.
