“My teachers all encouraged me after working on my own stuff to go outside myself and help others to heal, not as a humanitarian service but as a way to deepen my own healing process. I found that I had a gift for the work and that my teachers were absolutely right. Serving others is a remarkable learning process. My clients over the last 25 years have taken me to places I could not have gone on my own. I am deeply grateful for the gifts of personal growth that our work together has given me.” www.RossBishop.com

Gary P. Caton is a transdisciplinary astrologer who embraces an organic process-oriented
approach to spiritual transformation via engagement with the living sky. Initiated an
astrologer by a magnificent dream in 1993, Gary has since devoted his entire life to
refining this vision. An accomplished stargazer and astro-photographer, Gary combines
the experiential power and dynamic images of the living sky with classic horoscopy and
metaphysics, and delivers this alchemical blend through the matrix of bleeding edge
modern research and pioneering technique in his new book, Hermetica Triptycha: The
Mercury Elemental Year. You can also catch Gary online via the popular Hermetic
Astrology Podcast, or live, on one of his frequent lecture tours, across the US and abroad. More >

Jody Levy was a prayer-form-ance artist, writer, and visual artist. These sacred arts were woven with the intention to create a tuned field of conscious energy within which we can participate with the primordial bliss and self-liberating force of the Creative Evolutionary Intelligence. Her arts celebrated the awakening of the Divine in the physical and the ecstatic and erotic as a healing force. She taught workshops and classes and offered private healing sessions /empowered tarot readings by phone. It was a great loss when she transitioned out of her body in September 2015, surrounded by loved ones.

You may not recognize Richard Stodart’s name, but more than likely you know his contemplative and illuminative artwork. It’s an honor for us at Soulsign to welcome Richard Stodart in conversation with Adam.
From Richard’s web site: “At once worldly and spiritual, Richard Stodart’s artwork negotiates passion and warmth on the one hand, and serenity and quietude on the other. Calming, restorative, and quietly energizing, the luminous images invite reflection and contemplation.”
“Richard’s sensitively thoughtful yet translucent images combine the wild electricity of wakefulness with the vivid languor of lucid dreaming.” ~ Ven, Ngaka Chogyam, author of Rainbow of Liberated Energy, Roaring Silence: Discovering the Mind of Dzogchen, and Entering the Heart of the Sun & Moon
“Mary Magdalene” by Richard Stodart.
- “Outshining the darkness with light is not the same thing as illuminating the dark.”
- “Going with the flow” and “Glowing in the flow”
- “Intimacy of existence-time ongoing…..”
- A wonderfully lucid framing of : “reality”, “existence-time”, “light and dark”, “co-focal intimates”
- Relieving ourselves of the need to reconcile opposites.
- Light and Dark not as opposites seeking union, but already Unified.

What Others Say…
“Stodart’s paintings are narratives of the symbolic depths of the psyche moving towards integration. They are stations on his personal way of self-understanding and self-transcendence. Yet they are also mandalic symbols that expose our hidden structure. It is this that explains their archetypal strength.” ~ George Feuerstein, M. Litt., author, Shambhala Encyclopedia of Yoga
From Adam: “The most challenging InnerView for me thus far…”challenging” because any authentic inquiry about Richard’s art or spiritual path produces a relentless possibility of liberational insight – at the very bedrock of one’s self-beliefs. This conversation with Richard left no doubt in my mind that he is at the vanguard of next-generation Buddhist understanding. I’ve not found anyone – in person or in writing – to be exploring this terrain of our enlightenment.”
Some additional insights from Richard about why he believes light outshines darkness in the transcendental static framework: “Light becomes a self-sufficient absolute that also outshines emptiness. In effect, on its own it is unmediated by emptiness, which would make it dynamic and temporal. So, light silences both words and emptiness, creating a kind of idolatry of its self-sufficiency. As a consequence, words can only be used to exalt light and not to be its intimate, and emptiness is neutered when light conflates it with absolute timelessness.”
Ken Tucker, LMT Ken’s work is truly evolutionary, combining the most audaciously honest approach to our feeling body with the muscular surrender of the NeuroSoma® technique. This combination – through Ken’s incredible empathic abilities – will radically accelerate one’s healing. I highly recommend Ken to anyone ready for true Heart-sourced living. As Ken says, “It’s not for the faint of heart”. ” – Adam Gainsburg
From Ken: “I have been practicing the Neurosoma technique and I have to say it is far superior to any bodywork modality I have used over the past 25 years! I am seeing chronic spasm and tightness disappear in just a few treatments. Look into Neurosoma.
“Emotions are not positive or negative, they are received or resisted. When we receive them, we get what we need in the moment. Relearn how to feel so you can stay present in the moment and not use subtle muscular “holding” to resist your feelings. Resisting creates chronic muscle tension.
“I use Neurosoma and Feeling Body Therapy to assist you in separating emotional holding from your musculature so that you are not creating more and more spasm. This process also helps with correcting everyday misuse of our bodies. This is not New Age it is science.”
