» Healing C - Philip Jacobs - 'Chronic Illness and The Spiritual Path' - Interview by Iain McNay
Philip is the Sheik for the 'Turning' group at Colet House in West London. He studied with Dr Francis Roles for many years. In this interview he talks about the challenges he faced when he became seriously ill with Lyme disease. 'I had always previously thought that it was possible to change my attitude to any situation. With the illness, I realised that there was a stage where you couldn't. You could have a good attitude either side of the experience, but not while you were in it. This was when the illness was deep in the brain, there was no way out until it passed and you just had to allow the experience to be what it was and if it was darkness then it was just darkness.' ' I was having to assimilate the idea of illness and suffering as a gift - what looked like suffering on the physical and psychological levels could often have a transforming effect on the deeper spiritual levels, that may not be apparent to the casual observer.'
» Advaita - Philip Jacobs - 'The Pathless Path' - Interview by Iain McNay
Philip is the Sheik for the 'Turning' group at Colet House in West London. He studied with Dr Francis Roles for many years. He talks us through his life. He first learned meditation at 16, started Turning when he was still a teenager, and had to deal with the challenge of being severely compromised, energy-wise, with Lyme disease for many years. "You discover that the only safe place where there is security and no fear is the present. When I awoke in the early hours full of fear, I would say, just stay in the present, just rest in that deep secure sense of Amness. You notice that you are in a place beyond fear, even physical pain becomes just another series of sensations that you are witnessing from a point of stillness."
