Course Description

The Lunatic Gene - The cause of the voice in your head that either talks you out of success because of the limitations that others put upon you, or propels you towards success despite of this. And yes, you have it too!

This course is a light-hearted look at some hard hitting subjects, including the meaning of your life, the causes of your unhappiness and a route-map to your inner sanity, acceptance and happiness. This aspect of The Lunatic Gene simply covers the cause of the negative aspects of how it manifests. This course offers you simple and practical exercises to both increase your knowledge of how your Lunatic Gene manifests, and gives you easy to do exercises to help you stop fighting and start dancing with yours.

If you have ever experience a mid-life crisis, sleeplessness, depression, pain, suffering, family crises, are working in a job you hate, living with a spouse that you have fallen out of love with and are feeling stuck, or feel low or depressed, you have advanced symptoms of the negative aspect of The Lunatic Gene.

Warning: This course is highly controversial and may bring up things you are not ready to face at the moment. Despite the title, it is recommended that you only proceed if you are of sound mind and open to hard-hitting challenges. Everybody has a Lunatic Gene. This book explores your relationship with it, with practical steps for you to discover how you can stop fighting your Lunatic Gene, and start dancing with it.

The Lunatic Gene - The Reason Your Life Will Never Make Sense, is a journey into the world of what makes people do seemingly crazy things, offering you a template of the early warning symptoms which, if unaddressed, will lead you to an early grave. It also explores how you can reduce guilt and judgement in your life.

Based on the experience of Adam Shaw, The Heart Guy, who has spent over 20 years as a Wellbeing professional, including 13 years as a nurse, and growing up within the grounds of a psychiatric hospital for 17 years, where his parents worked and lived. He has worked with thousands of people with wellbeing challenges and serves up a very alternative view on health and wellness. More recently, he has worked in the business funding arena, helping CEO's and Entrepreneurs to improve their resilience, team dynamics and pitch better to attract funding into their businesses.

Of specific importance is his work with people who only had weeks, days, and even hours to live. The regrets expressed by people in this state had common themes, which if they had been addressed earlier in life would have led to a happier and more purposeful life.

He highlights the regrets and mistakes that consistently come up for people at the end of their lives and offers you easy steps of how you can avoid this by implementing some very simple steps, and improving your relationship with yourself.

This will explore:

  • What is the purpose of your life?
  • Are you happy?
  • What makes you happy?
  • Are you spending enough time with people you like?
  • Are you doing things that can easily improve your life?
  • What causes lunacy?
  • Is the world a lunatic asylum?
  • Is your phone set to drain your energy?

Please also note that the improvements to your life suggested on this course do not necessitate you giving up anything completely. It will suggest that you use your perceived 'bad' habits are used to trigger good ones, thus adding balance to your life.

At the end you will be invited to join a community to help you implement the suggestions in this course and meet people on a similar journey.

Section 1: Life's ONLY Guarantee

In this video you will get to question, albeit briefly, the meaning of your life. Ultimately, you only have one guarantee. In this video we look at this.

You can also download the first chapter of The Lunatic Gene - The Reason Your Life Will Never Make Sense for free on this page.

Here you will read where this journey began - by me watching a man walk into a bonfire and burn to death in front of me when I was about 10 years old.

It will explain what The Lunatic Gene is, what the symptoms of it are, how your head and heart interact, the early warning symptoms of serious disease (that most doctors do not even think to warn you about), and how rolling down a South African mountain when my tour vehicle crashed off the road, and the discovery of Reiki and energy, gave me a new perspective on life.

Most importantly, I explain how this journey can help you.

Section 2: Life's Lunatic Asylum

In this video we discuss the idea that we live in a big lunatic asylum. This comparison is based on comparing life to what happens in an institutional lunatic asylum. Just my opinion, and here I discuss why...


In this video we look at some of the subjects we will be covering on this course...


Here we discuss the early warning symptoms of a heart attack, some of which occur decades before a heart attack, and many things your average doctor would not even think, or even know, to warn you about. You may be surprised...


Now we get down to the workings of The Lunatic Gene and its function in your neuroses. We all have slight lunatic tendencies. Here we look at how these manifest...

Examine Your Relationships

Many people think the most important relationship of all is with their partner. I disagree...


In this video we look at the area that, I believe, can most quickly bring you towards inner peace whilst working with your Lunatic Gene. It is not easy to put in practice, but it will move you away from dis ease faster than any other process I know...


Every emotion you have is energy in motion to give you a message. Your ability to correctly interpret, and effectively deal, with these is directly linked to your ability to understand this principle, and apply it in your life...


This video's title speaks for itself! In this we look at how every issue in your life can be the catalyst for positive change. This happens by discovering the underpinning motivation for all of your actions and choices in your life...


Here we look at how your thoughts not only influence your own wellbeing, state of mind and life, but also that of those around you...

Instructor Biography

For the first 17 years of his life I lived within the grounds of a psychiatric hospital, where my parents lived and worked, as nurses. It was an interesting start to life! In 1992 I commenced my nurse training, and has worked as a health and wellbeing professional ever since. Having studied numerous wellbeing courses, workshops and techniques, including Reiki, NLP, hypnosis and channelling, I left nursing in 2007 and now work independently as a corporate and team trainer. 

With my medical background, working in Cardiac Care Units and the Emergency Room, I developed a deeper understanding about the psychology of disease and wellbeing. From this came the title, 'The Heart Guy'. The Lunatic Gene is the phenomenon I have discovered that causes people to get ill, depressed, and not be happy with their lives.

I now spend my time running a business network, educating people about The Lunatic Gene, building teams, and training people how to improve their personal energy. Being no angel myself, this is a course in acceptance and balancing your life in a more harmonious way. Judgement and guilt are the stumbling blocks of wellbeing: My courses explain how they manifest, and what you can do about it.
