Course Description

This seven part video series was created to enable you to step into your authentic self on camera and in life as a whole. So many people freeze when the camera goes on. It’s as if the camera has put a spell on them. The camera makes us act in ways we wouldn’t normally. This may happen to you and one of the reasons to invest in this course. The reason this freezing occurs is because the camera represents your judgements of yourself. The minute the camera goes on we become scared of what we are going to say and what people may think of us. The camera rarely lies so it’s a great tool for transparency to emerge. This course will also show you simple steps to practice so you can start recording and sharing your message right away and how to produce your introductory video for your website.

Simon is a professional actor, social entrepreneur, writer and you could say a communication enthusiast. Having starred and produced in his own movies he knows the power of the camera and its ability to express messages. In 2008 he founded Simon on the Sofa - Transformational Conversations. He facilitates workshops and mentors people through transparent communication, which is the ability to speak exactly what you are thinking and feeling without holding onto debilitating beliefs and programs which hold us back from communicating our truth.

Instructor Biography

Simon Paul Sutton, Share Your Truthful Message With The World; Using A Camera

Simon Paul Sutton
Ambassador of LOVE 

Lets say I’m also a curious alchemist exploring life, a social entrepreneur dedicated to the evolution of humanity. Excited to consciously evolve and share my experiences transparently. The goal if there is one is to continue, the journey is the destination.

Over the years I've become a masseur, personal trainer, accomplished actor and film-maker, and a supporter to others. I love writing and now use all my skills in my vision of serving humanity to evolve into a new species of transparent communicators who have broken free of the lies we tell because of our fear of survival and now walk with integrity, mindfulness, compassion, love and consideration for ourselves and every living thing.

Everything I do is about the exploration of reality and creating space for people to question their existence and to ignite self love within every soul. I encourage people to make choices which serve their well being and enable them to take responsibility for their lives. Through this process the impact they have on the world benefits the whole of humanity. Everything I do is about breaking open the invisible prisons of society by bringing into awareness the dysfunctional programs we uphold as truth. I do this because it allows me to explore, and expand my own existence.

As the Dalai Lama said, this is the century for authentic dialogue.
