The final frontier…. (with help from Syd Banks) 

If you are like me, you might now have the old ‘how many ears does Captain Kirk have…?’ joke in your head. But let’s move on….  And let’s instead ask a more useful question:  How far can we go with the exploration of what is real? And the answer is: Three. The left...

What is your purpose?

In one of the companies I worked for, a big deal was made of purpose. Employees were coached in finding what really made them tick and then they would spend a lot of time writing it out, choosing each word carefully so that the sentence reflected their sense of who...

True listening

My friend was doing an MBA and one of his text books had a chapter on listening. He sent me the summary box from the chapter of the 20 things to do in order to become a better listener. Things like: ‘make sure to maintain some eye contact but not so much as to...

The dream job

I coach, write and teach from the understanding that the self, other people and the world we experience is a creation of perception, of limited, conditioned thought.  This means that we are essentially living in a dream. A dream in which there is no self or other or...

The self-assertion​ trap

The self assertion trap Have you ever thought you should be more assertive? In one of the companies I worked for there was a list of values that all employees were judged against in their performance reviews.  One of the values was ‘Edge’. That meant putting yourself...

Alive

  Conception. Experiences. Death.  Life. One experience after another. Transient, temporary, split second, fleeting experiences.  Depending entirely on how we understand the nature of those experiences and us as the experiencer, life can be hell on earth or the...

The coaching I do is about seeing who we really are. We go through our lives believing we are this separate body, this identity, these choices, this life, these needs. But there is no substance, no realness to this. It is impermanent and subjective, a function of...

In this moment, are you a bottomless pit or the infinite source?

From moment to moment it is one or the other. In this moment, we are either focused on ourself with needs that must be met and emotions and experiences that must be sought or resisted. Fearful, anxious, insecure and needy. Trying to be ok now. Trying to make the...

The Other Side

Sometimes (often?) we look around us and think how much happier and more secure we would be if things were different. If we earned more money or were better with the money we have, if the kids were quieter or spent less time on the iPad, if the relatives were less...

Only You. 

  First of all there is only me. And there is the world and the people that affect me.  Here I am. Clare Dimond. And I have needs and wants that must be satisfied in order for me to be ok. I have preferences and desires and vulnerabilities. I am who I am and I go...

How are you doing?
