In this interview, Richard Moss says that there are two basic mistakes we make in this stage of the evolution of consciousness: we identify with our thoughts, and we flee from our feelings. He describes the four ways your thinking can affect you, how the body is literally the center of the experience of being in the now, and how the negative stories we tell ourselves are a form of physical poison and self abuse. He encourages us to engage the dark side of feelings as well as the light, and to be radically alive, becoming more available and fully connected with ourselves and others.
Richard Moss, MD received his doctorate of Medicine in 1972, but after a few years of general practice, a life-changing realization led him to his true calling: the exploration of spiritual awakening and its integration in daily life. For more than three decades Moss has been working intimately with groups, helping people all over the world to touch their deeper essence, thus transforming their lives. He is the author of many books, including The Black Butterfly, The Mandala of Being: Discovering the Power of Awareness, and Inside-Out Healing: Transforming Your Life Through the Power of Presence.
