Five Wise Women

So when we have Three Wise Men, why might there be Five Wise Women?

Well men aren’t all dumb. It’s mostly, but by no means all, men that have flown other men to the Moon and split the atom asunder … but I reckon it’s long overdue that we started listening to the wisdom of women so I felt it intuitively right to tip the balance a little.

I consider myself lucky to have had the opportunity to chat to so many wise people over the last few years. If I look back though, the number of wise women I have spoken too far outweigh the number of wise men. So I reckon it’s high time that we take notice and listen to what they have to say. Men have had a crack at running the planet and look what sort of mess it’s got us into after all.

Have a listen to the chats below and have a listen to the interviews with Three Wise Men and make your own judgement on the shape and colour of wisdom that currently abounds us. In my view, neither is wrong, right or better but in both we should celebrate such wonderful different-ness and insight-fullness …

Three Wise Men

Three Wise MenIt is only fitting at this time of year to revisit and revamp myths of old so I thought it would be appropriate to share some messages of wisdom from Three Wise Men.

Some thousands of years ago, the Three Wise Men brought gifts from the East. In these globally connected times, messages can come from all the Four Winds.

Listen and watch these insight-full messages from Gary Plunkett, Wisdom Keeper, from Phil Birch, Professor-in-Waiting of Ethiconomics and from Robert Forman, ‘Professer’ of Enlightenment.

Three Artists with Soul

August has been quite a month for the Moments of Light Radio show on The Barefoot Broadcast.

You can’t plan this sort of thing, it just happened but my three guests are all wonderful artists with three different takes on art and spirituality that touches the soul at a fundamental level.

In case you missed them, you can listen to the shows again here … your comments, thoughts and social media shares much appreciated.

Note that the show will be off air now until the end of September as I have a much needed break and it will be returning in a new guise when I’m back … more on that soon. In the meantime, enjoy.

They need no introduction as the recordings speak for themselves 😉

The first review for this book from the editor at O-books said, “This book is quite simply brilliant.”

This is kind of expected as tapping into our innate brilliance is what this book is all about and, most specifically, how to do it simply.

The Art and Science of Light Bulb Moments is an interactive, educational and entertaining guide on how to have ideas on demand. In it I explain how the mind works (and doesn’t work) so you that you can experience inspirations about anything pretty much any time you like.

Light bulb moments don’t have to be random.

You will learn the secrets to Whole Brain and Whole Mind Thinking, the importance of the breath and how to reconnect with your vestigial minds and the superconsciousness. Find out where ideas come from and why most thoughts aren’t necessarily your own.

Reading this book will quite possibly change your world by helping you spot serendipities, making you luckier and even healthier and wealthier.

But in this insightful book, Tom Evans unlocks some of the mystery and he shows that this isn’t the case. This is an insightful book which uncovers some of the mind’s mysterious creative processes. Tom Evans shows us how we can create the right conditions which enable insight and inspiration to arise, so that don’t just have to wait for them. A very practical and accessible guide to uncovering your mind’s potential.” Steve Taylor, Author of Waking From Sleep and Making Time
