Episode 6 - Insanely Gifted - The Joy of Being Human

by Jamie Catto | with Marina Pearson


How is it possible to experience a fully self-expressed version of ourselves? On today’s show I interview the infamous bestselling author,Faithless founder member and musician, coach and film director Jamie Catto on what it looks like to be free of the mask.


“We are each a wise guru in charge of a mental patient.”

We’re on a mission to make self-reflection hip for just a moment, just long enough to save us. If we can all collectively acknowledge our insanity, shrug and roll our eyes at each other at how nuts it is being a human, let alone having to pretend every day that we’re ‘normal’, the amount of energy we’ll inherit that has been wasted on the mask will be enough to creatively solve any global crisis.” Jamie Catto

Today’s exploration with Jamie Catto takes us into a conversation about mental health. He shares where our own self-judgements and weird behaviours come from and his insights into how we as human beings tend to deny and runaway from the demons. However he has found that by getting curious and going into the “no go area” you can create enormous relief and transformation to unleash your genius within and not care about what others will think.

Jamie also shares how life is always wanting us to grow and evolve and it does this by placing people and circumstances in our lives that show us our triggers so that we can heal them. We also talked about parenting and how we need to look after ourselves and include ourselves in the circle of generosity.

He also goes into what children experience to get a better understanding of what their behaviour is actually saying versus the interpretation of their actions and what we can do to make it right.

We also talk about his journey of growth and how his growth has affected his music and what his movie All About Mewas about and how it took him on a very unexpected journey. He also throws out how we can be present and experience true gratitude more of the time. We also talked about the work he has done with clowns and what he learnt!

If you fancy knowing more about how the mind works, Jamie’s playful work and what you can do to free yourself of the committee of voices in your head then this is going to be a great episode for you. Enjoy!
