English episode of Claircast featuring Art Reade, an Apache Indian renowned for conducting seminars in Europe since the early 1980s. Art Reade was born in Arizona, USA, in the mountains east of Phoenix. During his early years, he was raised by his Indian grandmother, who imparted valuable lessons on using intuition, respecting all living beings, and perceiving the world as an interconnected whole. He later became a school teacher and athletic coach, even training Olympic-level runners at a California university.
Subsequently, he developed personal growth programs, teaching various groups, including prisoners and cancer patients. His work involved guiding patients in activating their innate self-healing abilities, resulting in significant positive outcomes. Art Reade’s courses focus on themes like reclaiming personal power and self-respect, resolving past issues, setting future goals and taking action towards them, embracing responsibility on multiple levels, and more. While rooted in Indian and spiritual values, his courses are presented in a manner that resonates with “ordinary Western rational types.”
Art is an engaging individual with charisma, a warm sense of humor, and a compassionate heart. The host first met him in Copenhagen in 1985 when attending one of his courses, “Clearing I,” which had over 100 participants. In Germany, his courses often attract more than 200 people, with long waiting lists. Over the years, the host has participated in all of Art’s courses, including “Clearing II,” “Abundance,” “Journey,” “Spiritual Relationships,” and the 12-hour open lecture, “Prayer Talk.” Art has also introduced two new lectures, “Spiritual Economy Talk” and “Faith and Hope Talk.”
In this interview, Art Reade discusses his childhood dreams, the reasons behind his initial visit to Denmark, his teaching goals, and how individuals can transform their lives if they feel disconnected from their true selves. He also explores some of the differences between Western and Indian ways of thinking. Art shares insights into how he maintains an 80-hour workweek without experiencing stress and the secrets to his course’s success, even without active advertising or marketing efforts.
Art Reade rarely grants interviews, as he believes it is better for individuals to experience his courses with few preconceived notions about him or his teachings. Therefore, the host is particularly grateful for the opportunity to speak with him “backstage” after his “Clearing II” course in Copenhagen in November 2006, offering listeners a rare glimpse into his thoughts and experiences.
