Podcast 17 More Than You Think You Are
February 16, 2020

Stuart Newberry is a wellbeing coach, pointing people towards universal consciousness and oneness. His message is ‘you are more than you think you are.’

It’s a far cry from his former role as a police Detective Superintendent, dealing with some of the most serious crimes in Devon and Cornwall.

What happened?

In this podcast Stu talks about:

  • His time in Devon and Cornwall police and how he remembers it with great fondness. He retired in 2004.
  • Working on challenging cases, like murders, rapes and serious assaults. It was a time of hard work, long hours and he witnessed the worst of human behaviour. But it was also a time of tremendous satisfaction, working with dedicated teams and people.
  • How some of the assumptions he had about criminals began to look different. Rather than see criminals as fundamentally bad people, he realised that these were people that were believing thinking in the moment. They were taking thought as an instruction to behave a certain way, they didn’t realise that thinking is transient and shifts.

Now as Stu looks forward in his work as a coach, he realises more than ever that his clients are usually looking in the wrong place for wellbeing. They often forget that they are more than they think they are.

    Thanks Liz and Stu for taking the trouble to produce this podcast. One of the wonderful aspects for me about this understanding is that topics which one level can look like huge, complex possibly insolvable issues are actually all straightforward. I loved the Brexit interlude which shone a clear, bright, hopeful light on my thinking! I was touched by the heart warming content of the podcast which was a gentle and insightful reminder of our true nature. I have recently successfully concluded some negotiations and know for certain that success was due to engaging with other people through an inside out understanding. The particular notion that we are not separate truly informs.

    Enjoyed this podcast Liz and Stuart. Still getting to grasps with it. Will keep reading your wonderful Facebook reflections and listening to the podcasts. Am reading Rani Bora’s “How to turn stress and anxiety on its head” and have just purchased “Somebody should have told us” by Jack Pransky.

      You’re welcome – enjoy the Jack Pransky book. Have you listened to my podcasts with Rani? They are nice and short. It was fun making them.

    Thanks Stu for an illuminating account of your journey. The words, “psychological innocence” come to mind. We need to distinguish between the action and the perpetrator. We cannot be broken whoever and whatever we’ve done. Enlightenment in prison is freer than caught in our thinking outside.
