Our Guest // Steven C. Hayes
Your Host // Tim Bishop
Steven C. Hayes effortlessly opens a world of wonder inside anyone who listens to him, or reads his work. He delicately guides the mind into places that seem too dark to venture alone, and he does so with humour, non judgement, playfulness and deep care. He seems to blur the lines between spirit, mind, body, self, consciousness and emotion... Everything that seems so compartmentalised & sometimes complex, comes together exquisitely as one. You can't help but feel totally whole and complete with every drop of divine wisdom that he gracefully and authentically shares.
His over 70 years of experience and sage-like wisdom puts you into a kind of hypnotic trance of pure wonder and engagement. Every word he speaks plays out in your mind in real time and before you know it, you'll feel healed of things you didn't know needed healing.
Author of 45 books, 600 scientific articles and Professor in the Behavior Analysis program at the University of Nevada, his career has focused on an analysis of human language and cognition and the application of this to the understanding and alleviation of human suffering. He is the developer of 'Relational Frame Theory'; an account of human higher cognition, and has guided its extension to 'Acceptance and Commitment Therapy' (ACT), a popular evidence-based form of psychotherapy that uses mindfulness, acceptance, and values-based methods.
