The Bare Truth Podcast
'The Bare Truth' is a celebration of the extraordinary in day-to-day living, from the unsung hero to those on a bigger stage. Each week, Julia interviews someone from a different area of interest who is passionate about what they do, who is expressing themselves in their own unique way, and who wants to share what they do with others.
Please feel free to contact Julia with any comments about the show, or if you would like to be interviewed yourself. We also include contact details of our guests where possible - if you'd like more information, why not get in touch?
Interview with Karl Greenwood, Stunt Rider and Hypnotherapist
20 November 09
I had looked on Karl’s website before I met him and seen amazing pictures of him and his wife doing amazing feats and tricks on horseback – and half off horse back! Beautiful photographs of re-enacting pageants, battles and jousting.
I was intrigued to meet him and find out about his lifestyle. He has an open friendly face. He lives outdoors and this is reflected in a healthy glow to his skin and a feeling of expansion and freedom that seems to come with being outside whatever the weather.
His sport has lead him into hypnotherapy as he found fear coming up when he had an accident or found he was blocked in an area he wanted to progress. He was motivated to unravel his own blocks and so taught himself through reading and practicing techniques on himself and then giving others the benefits of his learning.
The steps to formal training and now making a profession out of being a hypnotherapist seem clear ones that were always there on his path ahead of him, but he has taken these steps and listened to his own inner compass ‘Hypnotherapy was given to me’, he comments.
It made me reflect that all we need to it look ahead at where we want to go and let it come to us, invite it in and open to its arrival with a warm and enthusiastic greeting…
