Conscious Connections with Clive Tempest




Clive has been giving talks since February 2013 and these have been recorded. The first series was called 'Meeting Mr Gogus' - the mysterious impulse that determines the lives of those drawn to a more conscious life. There followed a series of meetings about 'The Psychological Life' that we normally lead and the crisis now confronting this civilisation. The escape from the psychological life was then explored in the 'Course in Conscious Living'. This was mapped out as the discovery of what it is to be a True Individual - including the consequences for any rational explanation of existence; the process of taking 'The Next Step' in order to allow the coming of the new; the recognition of how self-centred you are; the importance of standing your ground against the pull of the psyche; and finally how to be what you are more often than who you are.


'What Clive has to say is so new that it often needs several rounds of listening before it is heard. Every time something new is revealed. The recordings also have an energetic impact. Just be open and allow them to do their work. Clive's voice is full of life and he is amazingly able to find the right words to describe what he's communicating. Listening to him is like listening to the most powerful music!'
(Testimonial from a psychotherapist.)


The Power of Chi : An Introduction to Nei Gung

A Course of Seven Lessons recorded at classes with the Taunton Chi Gung Group January-February 2019. Each recording is around 50-60 minutes long and includes exercises and meditations, with instruction in how to breath in chi and increase your awareness of the space in your body. The first class is free. The rest of the course is available in two bundles of three mp3s. Please note that the recording quality improves as the series continues.

Nei Gung: One 'In Chi Gung we use movements of the body to activate our nervous system so that we can begin to detect the entry of pure energy, or chi, from external space into our inner space. Nei Gung is the process of working with that chi once it's inside the body - working with it to clarify, to empty, to discharge anything that we're holding onto from the outer world.'
Free download.

Nei Gung: Two, Three and Four The primary conscious connection, scanning the energy body, drawing chi from the breath, the seated presence, dropping the mask of personality, working with the chi to free sadness and anxiety in the upper burner.
24 for three mp3s

Nei Gung: Five, Six and Seven Increased awareness of energy circuits in the body, opening up inner space, working with the power of chi to deal with reservations and dread, breathing from the middle burner, resonance, delegating the breathing to accumulated chi, the residence of chi in the lower burner, the fire that consumes the past, the Rod of Authority, the Ring of Unity and the Orb of Power.
