Elliott Hulse here.  I've had this video removed at least a dozen times from various channels owned by people who have not respected my decision to hide it.  But, I am not going to flag it this time.

Since uploading this video to my channel over, almost 3 years ago, I have met and been contacted by hundreds of men and woman who thanked me for helping change their lives by introducing them to bioenergetics.  After learning about people who overcame depression, anxiety, dissociation, low energy, poor self-esteem and suicidal thoughts by observing my openness and vulnerability in this video... I realize just how important this video is in facilitating the global spiritual awakening upon us.

If you watch this video and are moved by it, I invite you to give bioenergetics a try.  Although it requires the difficult task of setting your ego aside, and yielding into the irrational spontaneous movement of your body... you will find freedom!

If what you see me doing here makes you cringe and feel uncomfortable,  you may need this more than anyone.  Read some of the work by Alexander Lowen, particularly "Fear Of Life".  This will give your rational mind some comfort while exploring your inner world of fear, guilt and shame.

Finally, not only will I allow this video to remain... I invite you to share it.  Or better yet, develop the courage to make your own bioenergetic catharsis video.  The world needs more openness and vulnerability, and by you letting down you not only free yourself, you give others the permission they need to release, relax and breathe into their balls (or pelvic floor) also.

With relentless love and strength, 
Elliott "Big Belly Breathing" Hulse :)

Can you substantiate rather than just call names? I'm personally exploring bioenergetics and embodiment exercises and finding  them very powerful to step out of thinking and into feeling and working with my emotions.

Excellent video on Organisational design and strategy. #orgdesign 
It took +Jonathan Rosenberg  and me a decade of experimentation and reflection to come up with the rules we captured in How Google Works. With this video, you can learn the key points in about three minutes. I guess things really are speeding up in the Internet Century!

Kudos to +TheDrawShop  for this fun video recap of #HowGoogleWorks.

Be Slightly Evil - Full Card Set
Version 0.7

What is this?

Inspired by, the Be Slightly Evil mailing list, and numerous discussions that have sprung from both, I started tinkering with designing MtG-inspired cards that would ideally introduce people to a person or idea through a judiciously chosen quote and a mechanic that illustrated the concept.

The scope expanded to become a full set: 269 cards, plus 8 token cards. As of version 0.7, the set is fully built and stable enough to sustain serious playtesting.

Note that this project is wholly unofficial and unauthorized, and for personal use only.

Please feel welcome to comment on specific cards with questions or suggestions, reshare with folks you think would enjoy this.


Version notes 0.7: All cards have gone through an initial review and most have been play-tested. Will be working out the kinks/balance issues over the next several months.

FuelStory - systems for life and business

It all starts with a good story. What's your story past, present & future?

Our process:

1. Review: first we understand what's your past story, what stage are you at, your motivations, what's worked, what hasn't worked. Then from a place of empathy & understanding we map out your ecosystem, search and discover insights.

2. Reflect: next we take stock, run a healthcheck, audit and identify both the bottlenecks and opportunities, then prioritise the areas to focus on that will leverage and accelerate the most change right now

3. Roadmap: together we craft a strategy and plan with a timeline and layout your short, medium and longterm actions, milestones and objectives.

Recalibrate - schedule periodic waypoints to check we are on target, measure, reflect and then create the next roadmap given your trajectory.

One of my all time favourite places. A 1 kilometre long flat, soft, sandy beach. Perfect to walk or run along barefoot. You can also rock hop scramble over the rocks between bays and do an extended adventure up the coast. It's a great place to bring friends and family on with a large grass bank back from the beach with BBQs and space to chill with other people.

One of my favourite places in London. I always feel welcome and like I belong. The layout of the cafe is deliberately designed to create space where you sit in the middle of the buzz of the coffee creation process. The staff are friendly and despite being busy have often taken the time to have an attentive 2-5 minute conversation with me about coffee which is amazing given the queue out the door. The table design is about 8 to a table, this is deliberate paired with signs to NOT talk on cell phones, this structure creates chance encounters, serendipity of conversation with strangers because use must share a table. Every time I come here I'm having fun, feeling welcome and meeting new lively characters. Come chat with me over a coffee -- Caveman Klaus

Chris from Shaping Change really knows his stuff. He took me from around 22% to 14% body fat in 3 months. Lot's of unconventional exercises, smashing tires with sledgehammers and the like, loved it. Chris is a life long learner and committed to being top of his craft using the latest techniques, supplements and blood testing options. I highly recommend Chris.

The products are first class, every time I am here I explore and discover great new items to support a healthy and environmentally conscious life. The layout of the store works, the staff are friendly, knowledgeable and helpful with any questions I ask. I live 15 minutes walk away so it's perfect for me and a great complement to the green urban sanctuary which is Regents Park. Caveman Klaus
