Time For Change

Clive Tempest ‘I state certain propositions and describe life as I see it. I say that the human species is emerging from five centuries of what I call the Psychological Life, when everybody increasingly became obsessed with themselves – with what they think, how they identify themselves and what more they can achieve in the world.

‘In living like that we separated ourselves from what is most real and fulfilling in life; and now mostly everyone is unhappy with themselves. I appeal to the individual to break away from those values and ‘live more consciously’ – knowing what we are dealing with, not getting trapped in thinking, anxiety and stress, rediscovering the natural principles of life on earth and living accordingly.

‘What I say is that we are all engaged in the evolution of consciousness and each one has a unique part to play in it. This is the time for a shift in consciousness and it is up to the individual to make their contribution.

‘Could that individual be you? If so, give me a chance and listen to what I’ve got to say. You might think you’ve heard some of it before – that’s because it’s true – but don’t listen through what you think you already know. This is new.

‘I make a radical proposition, but once a person sees the potential for change a certain pressure arises in their intelligence; they realise what they want and the course of their life starts to have much more purpose.

‘If what I say is sufficiently clear and meaningful, then you will naturally take steps to change the direction of your life – simply because you see there’s more good, more love, much less anxiety and stress in living more consciously.’

For over 40 years Clive Tempest has been supporting individual transformation and creativity - in the performing arts, in teaching chigung and during his decades of service to the Australian spiritual teacher Barry Long. Clive's work is original and embraces the whole of life in uniting practical everyday wisdom with the bigger picture of our evolving consciousness - the ordinary with the extraordinary.

A Better Life

"Clive's talks are a comprehensive and intelligent study of the way we live now and show us what to do to move on to a better life. It's a methodology for strengthening ourselves and the human system against the pressure of these ever tougher times. It does what it says. I now enjoy my life more, am less stressed and know what I'm doing with my life." (From a regular listener to Clive's talks.)
