In every situation we approach, we can do it wracked by anxiety, insecurity and ego, or we can do it with resilience, peace and joy. Of course, the second way sounds great, but how do we get there? Everyday conscious experience can seem like a Gordian Knot – positive and negative thoughts and feelings, reactions, and baggage intertwine and tug on each other. It can feel impossible to make progress, or even know if we’re making progress.

This talk will explore how we can free ourselves by pulling the right thread first: by examining the “why,” the motivation behind what we do and how we direct our lives. We’ll learn to recognise three universal categories of motivation and how we subconsciously prioritise them. Leveraging everything from the spiritual experiences of one of history’s greatest scientific minds, to the way organic systems operate, we’ll come away with simple, effective tools for tapping into a happy, productive way of being that’s both new but so fundamental that even the cells in our bodies are structured according to it!
