What is Awespace?
We live in a fast-paced busy society, with many pressures and demands, and information bombarding us from every direction. Psychologically, this continual bombardment means we literally cannot think, never-mind relax and truly rest. Everywhere, people are pleading for more space, within both their lives and minds.
Recent research in psychology has identified that there is a type of person who notices and appreciates the things around them, and that this ability is one of the greatest indicators of well-being. Trying to slow down and create more space in our lives, and within our-selves, will greatly increase our well-being. Many of us probably already suspect this, but find it difficult to create this longed-for space.
Once we have settled the chitter-chatter of the mind and created space in our lives we can enter into a huge expansive and profound space. A space that all thought and that energy arises in. The infinite and huge space has recently led to a revolution in Science and in particular quantum mechanics. This was famously predicted by Nikola Tesla
“The day science begins to study non-physical phenomena, it will make more progress in one decade than in all the previous centuries of its existence.” Tesla
Just like in Newtonian physics, we ourselves, focus on the manifest, on what is there, what is concrete and what can be perceived (including thought). But just as there has been a revolution in science we now move into a Revolution of The Self as we start to learn to navigate (just as the great poets, artist, inventors, geniuses and mystics did) this awesome space….this Awespace.
It is the place the great poets, artists, scientists and inventors have all touched, it is the place we discover our own bodies intelligence and the great intelligence of the breath. Whilst we chase things and thoughts
Our vision is to support seekers in their own Silent Revolution and to furnish them with the tools to navigate their own Awespace. We believe that if we train individuals to navigate the Awespace and they teach others that eventually their will be a long-awaited global revolution.
“The problem with the world is that the intelligent people are full of doubts, while the stupid ones are full of confidence.”
― Charles Bukowski
Although we would never like to call anyone stupid, we recognise the intelligent, self-doubting creative beautiful people and this is a call to you
Awespace and The Enchanted Child project were founded by psychologist Dr. Jeannine Goh. After ten years of researching the self and working in child-development, Jeannine started to feel frustrated and sad about the society we live in. She realised that life holds many possibilities and potentials that were not being explored, and was alarmed at the misleading messages and the increasing pressures of modern-day life. Research was making sombre reading, with more reports of mental-health problems increasing and well-being falling. Although this is a generation-wide concern, her heart reached out first to our children. After more reports on the disillusionment and disenchantment amongst our young, she started to imagine a child with all their excitement and wonder about the world, continuing to grow and develop in this way right through to adulthood. She then embarked on The Enchanted Child project and set up Awespace, and initially received a small grant from UnltD to become a social entrepreneur. From this came The Enchanted Child book, which then, with the kind support of The National Lottery, turned into the Soulful Schools programme. Then, with further kind funding from the Arts Council and The Royal Society of Arts, the Enchanted Child story became a performance and Awespace’s own mini-festival, The Magic of Life, was born. A pathway to positive change had started to evolve and unfold.
‘During this time I have met and have now joined with the most wonderful, talented and inspirational people and we have exciting, powerful and beautiful visions for the future’
Dr. Jeannine Goh
Although Jeannine is still passionate about education she has spent the last three years writing a new book which will be out later this year. She has spent this time abridging many texts by the ancient mystics and fusing it with theories within modern science. The result is an easy to read, enjoyable guide to having your own silent revolution by following 5 simple revelations. Jeannine is presently recording a free course (limited to the first 100 participants) to accompany the book and is excited to share these skills and knowledge with you.
