You don’t have to shout or show off to be charismatic because charisma is an authentic power that lives within us all. When you are being true to who you really are inside you shine. As your charisma starts to flow you switch your cells into a growth operating mechanism that strengthens your immune system, increases your confidence and expands your awareness. Charisma can be likened to the same state that top class athletes experience – The Zone
You can’t teach charisma, certainly not in a conventional way because the moment that you try to teach an individual a charismatic behaviour that is out of alignment with the essence of who they really are at their core, they will come across as fake, superficial and devoid of charisma altogether. I clearly remember the excitement and nerves surrounding the launch of my first charisma seminar in November 2008 at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre. I was about to deliver content and exercises created following two decades of research – it felt very personal.
Here I was on this dark blustery November morning about to teach business leaders how to become more charismatic!!! My approach was inspired by the rebellious world of Quantum Physics and the miraculous reactions caused by the discovery of Epigenetics on cellular healing. As I trained to become a Reiki Master I started to appreciate the vital connection between energy and charisma. Paul McKenna, who I met during an appearance on a well known breakfast show in 1992 introduced me to tools that work at a deep level. The unconscious mind plays a vital role when transforming attitudes through charisma. Whilst I was strongly convinced that my unusual approach to developing charisma worked, it was a rather surreal experience to stand in front of a bunch of discerning business people and introduce them to ‘ a world of woo’!
I spent 5 years testing my methods at The Globe with hundreds of business leaders from all types of organisations and it proved to be a period of accelerated change as my blueprint was relentlessly tested, assessed, adapted, refined and improved. In the early days I remember introducing a couple of exercises and realising that I definitely wouldn’t be running those again!!!! Yet the impact of these two days was visible and dramatic. So much so that I employed the services of a Royal photographer who specialises in photographing well-known charismatic people. He photographed people throughout the event witnessing their powerful transformation.
It feels like a cliche to say that many attendees reported that their lives have been irrevocably changed and the impact of these two days endures. I recently posted a request on Facebook to ask people who had previously gone through my programme to share what they gained in one sentence and was inundated by responses that included:
“Completely changed how I feel about myself”
“My life is completely different now”
“Confidence to communicate more clearly with others”
“A rare a unique opportunity to make sense of who you really are”
The better you feel about yourself and others improves your performance at work, it improves your relationships with your family and it improves your physical, emotional and spiritual well-being. I have evolved this programme into a powerful Charisma Retreat held in beautiful venues for a small number of people. Delivered with the amazing Corah Clark who is, in my opinion, one of the UK’s top Transpersonal Therapists and supported by one of the UK’s top Cultural Architects – Karen Bellamy.

We tend to manage our lives intellectually – in other words we get stuck in our heads, keeping ourselves preoccupied with juggling an assortment of activities and responsibilities in order to manage the surface of life. We all eventually reach a moment at a certain age when we feel ready to start listening to our intuition and allow ourselves to follow what we feel in our deepest self. It’s the most intelligent, powerful, brilliant, authentic and sane choice we can make. If you feel ready to take this step that elevates you from your head and connects you to the ebb and flow of your heart then we look forward to hearing from you.
