Newness in Ourselves and the World

May 01, 2018

Michelle A. Hardwick of Release Peace is a highly qualified Hypnotherapist, advanced Trainer and Practitioner of the Emotional Freedom Techniques (EFT), and is qualified in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP).

Have you noticed recently how things really are changing?

For me it feels like I’ve walked through mud for the past few months (well let’s just say YEARS!), and now I am noticing that things are finally starting to get easier. Thankfully a LOT easier than they have ever been. (And about time too!)

It’s a feeling of ‘walking on air’ as well as being much more in tune with the Universe and the Divine.

Those hardships are now in the past, released, and all heaviness or ‘stuff’ that has blocked and limited us previously seems to have disappeared. We are now free to move on with our lives and our purpose.

How liberating is that?

Many of my clients are in a process of change too. They are leaving the safety and security of their...

Dr. Martyn Newman PhD: The Strength of Equanimity

Apr 16, 2018

Martyn Newman is a widely respected voice on emotional intelligence and leadership. Here is some of his presentation from day two of the 2018 Pendulum Summit. Hear more from Martyn on Pendulum Talks.

The problem in business and education is that we separate feeling from knowing. We teach about verbal intelligence, maths and performance IQ, but not about recognising the inner-life of experiences or managing surging emotions.

We’ve created environments of complete disengagement. We’ve created cultures of passive-aggressivity within our organisations, places where people resist change and making a contribution.

I’ve spent the last 20 years delving into the back-end of my profession to combat this error. I want to help people understand the importance of feelings and how they contribute to the cultivation of knowledge and problem-solving.

Inside of each intelligent creature, what Buddhists call ‘sentient beings’, is a remarkable capacity for curiosity. A...

Meditation For An Active Lifestyle

Apr 05, 2018

Meditation can take many forms. Years ago (in my youth), I thought that there was just one style – like all the photos I’d seen – with people sitting cross-legged, wearing robes, chanting Om. I’d decided that that, wasn’t for me. To be honest, I was also constantly moving, running through my life, so I definitely wasn’t the type of person who could sit still for long periods of time, nor do that thing with my legs. Back then, I was terrified of anything remotely “woo-woo” i.e. weird/ religious/ or ‘out there’ – all of that stuff frightened me to death. I was sure I’d end up joining a cult, being whisked away and never seeing my family again. Those limiting beliefs stayed with me until…I had a marriage break-up. Oh boy. That was big.

After that experience, I knew I needed to change. I couldn’t continue living my life the way I had been. I knew I would have to do something completely different. I...

Marci Shimoff: The Science of Happiness

Apr 04, 2018

Marci Shimoff was speaking at the 2018 Pendulum Summit; she is one of the world's leading voices on happiness and a New York Times bestselling author. Hear more from her on Pendulum Talks.

Happiness is the one thing we have wanted from time immemorial.

How many of you would like to wake up in the morning that little bit happier? We all do. We have an epidemic of unhappiness in our society. One out of every four women are on antidepressants. We have more than we’ve ever had, yet we’re unhappier than we’ve ever been.

Thankfully, there’s good news. It’s that, for the first time in human history, science has cracked the happiness code. We now know exactly what it takes for people to become happier, and as far as I’m concerned, that should be headline news.

Some of you may dismiss this to be airy-fairy California fluff. I am indeed from California, but this is science and a major contributor to your bottom line. Happier companies outperform...

Creating a Successful Business Plan

Apr 02, 2018

Most entrepreneurs get lost in the maze of figuring out what makes an investor bite and thus fund one business plan versus another. The people with the money have a set of rules and invest in things that the poor and middle class are not even aware of. To successfully raise money, you must understand the rules that the rich use to make their investment decisions.

If you wanted to find the formula or rules that the rich use, the best way to approach this problem is for you to write the following down on a piece of paper: “I have $10,000,000 to invest and I MUST invest it.” Now, suppose I bring you a deal and I want you to invest in my new company. What questions will you ask me? What specific issues will you want addressed? What are you looking for? What would be important for you to learn from me that will give you confidence that I have a shot at making this deal work?

The answer to these questions should be addressed in a well thought out, comprehensive business plan....

James Caan CBE: Success is a Journey

Mar 29, 2018

James Caan CBE is one of the most respected business titans in Britain. He was speaking at the 2018 Pendulum Summit. Hear his presentation in its entirety on Pendulum Talks.

Through life you must continually reinvent yourself.

It’s rare that your journey is one straight line. Life is full of twists and turns, and to be successful you must have have the ability to adapt and change course. The underlining ingredient in this journey is passion. Working hard for something we don’t care about is stress, but working hard for something we do care about is passion. This is an quality that I’ve held dear throughout my career.

I wasn’t born with a silver spoon in my mouth. I didn’t have a private education. When I left school and went out on my own at 16, I had no money in my pocket. What I did have was a great degree of ambition coupled with self-belief and a strong desire to achieve. I had a powerful work-ethic, too, something I believe imperative in any...

Surfing, Ceramics and Fishmongering in La Jolla

Mar 21, 2018

Joe Skoby lives in La Jolla, Southern California. Purchase his creations here.

I work enough so that I can pay my bills and feed my family, but what I truly find fulfilling is immersing myself in the creative process. For me, those two creative outlets are ceramics and surfing.

Pottery for me is like surfing. You’re hyper-focused on what’s in front of you. There’s no background noise and there’s nothing else that exists in your world besides that which is right in front of you. What I aim for in my pottery is tapping into that stripped-down simplicity - where you’re combining curves, texture and colour to create a form that’s considered beautiful.

Firing the krill is super intense. You have to be there for ten to 12 hours sometimes and it reaches up to 2,500 degrees. You have to decide on the correct amount of gas and oxygen and strike the correct combination of the two. This is in order to get the krill not only to temperature, but also to...

Dream Jobs, Perfect Partners and Beach Houses

Mar 21, 2018

Ewa Pietrzak is a Dublin-based success coach and motivational speaker. Courtesy of The Irish Independent, she shares her thoughts on the art of visualisation.

Visualisation is the starting point for all great inventions in the world today, including airplanes, cars and computers. The art of painting a picture of what we want using our mind is a powerful tool that successful people have been using for aeons.

After inventing the telephone in 1876, Alexander Graham Bell said: "The day will come when the man at the telephone will be able to see the distant person to whom he is speaking." Imagine how far-fetched that pronouncement must have been in the 1800s? But he visualised it, and now it's commonplace.

As children, we visualised on a daily basis. We thought nothing of disappearing into our fairytale princess castle or saddling the horse and heading for the Wild West. The academic education system grinds to a halt when it comes to teaching about dreaming or visualisation. They...

Cavemen and Cavities

Mar 20, 2018


Jevan Pradas is the author of The Awakened Ape and creator of the blog The Tribal Way. He uses evolutionary psychology to hack the human mind and body and combat the society he deems bored, fatigued and overweight. In his book, he argues how a unique synthesis of a Palaeolithic lifestyle and Buddhist meditation can teach you how to achieve a deep bliss and shape your body into the fit and healthy animal millions of years of evolution programmed us to be. Here, he explains why cavemen never visited the dentist.


When I was younger, I would always wonder how our ancestors survived without toothbrushes and toothpaste. How didn't they lose all their teeth by the time they hit adolescence? I brushed my teeth twice a day, visited the dentist every six months, and I still got cavities. 

The truth is that our hunter-gatherer ancestors didn't get cavities.

And as soon as I transitioned to a paleo diet two years ago, I stopped getting cavities too. I didn't...
