Guidance for Life on Earth
Teachings and Practices from Inner Guides
Guidance for Life on Earth is a series of books written in cooperation with what Stephen experiences as inner guides, who describe themselves as multidimensional beings not focussed in physical form. The books present the guides’ perspective on our world, and why we are here. Their intention is to support us in living our lives very differently and in creating a different world.
In Book One, Reality, Humans and the Earth, the Earth is framed as a plane of experimentation. What we understand as reality is a reflection of our inner state, mirroring the consciousness we choose to embody. Our primary purpose in life is to discover who or what we might be, and any difference we wish to make in the world needs to begin deep inside us.
In Book Two, Being Human, Being World (Part 1), we are invited to practice exploring the world as a process rather than as a place. We are shown how we ‘world’, as a verb, how what we perceive as the condition of our world, and as the crises of our world, are an effect of choices that we are making less than consciously, and how we may choose and act through much greater awareness of ourselves and of the deeper nature of our reality.
Book One and Book Two are available online from Amazon websites, where you can also read extracts from the books. Book Three will be available in 2021.
What Readers are Writing
“This book is the answer for the evolutionary moment I know we are in, bless you for the courage to bring this into the world.”
“In an epiphany moment, I could clearly sense that these books are much more than I can imagine. They are huge. They will change lives and with this will change humanity.”
“More of a continuous prayer than a book. Thank you for your dedication.”
“A palpable transmission of love.”
“A journey of transformation, not a quick fix self-help guide or book of philosophy. A sequence of practices which accelerate what used to take a lifetime of dedicated practice from a wisdom tradition.”
“The book invites a slow reading, often interceded with long moments of stillness and silence, which allow a wide range of altered states of consciousness to arise. This material empowers me, transforms me.”
“My experience as I read the book is of me in present time, while the understanding that is coming to me from the book is both ancient and futuristic, understandings outside of time.”
“This is a living book. It speaks what we need to hear or feel in that moment. I feel the words are alive, limitless pointers.”
“The book is transformative, powerful and precise; its impact unexpected and intense, challenging and clearing, allowing me to step evermore into a freer self.”
“Not a book but pure loving energy, limitlessly potent.”
“I feel a strong transmission which sparkles and dances with something deep inside and all around me. It glows with a subtle intensity that radiates out and infuses my whole being. This book, these words – a gift for humanity. It is life saying Welcome Home.”
“For those who want to look behind the veil, to take a loving look at their patterns and beliefs and, by immersing yourself in these words, changing to a new way of being in the world.”
“To be slowly, carefully and intimately engaged with. The book has led to explorations of previously unknown territory and opened a vision for evolving into a future beyond my imagination.”
“Things I know or think I know are presented with a clarity and a depth that is becoming my own. This is not a book to read, but a book to wake you up, to show you who you really are.”
Working with the Books
Guidance for Life on Earth is much more than a series of books, and the books are much more than simply for reading. They are tools for working with, or practicing the teachings, so that these become integrated and embodied in us, as a way of life, as a world different to that which we know. The guides’ intention is that the practices be explored between people, or ‘practice partners’, in pairs, and in small and larger group configurations.
As the books are published, Stephen’s intention is to host an online space to which readers may subscribe. He will offer regular online sessions there, and you will meet others who are ready to engage more deeply with the materials, practicing together in creative ways to explore and apply the principles in your everyday life.
We don’t yet know when the online practice space will become available; it will be announced to subscribers of Stephen’s occasional newsletters – sign up here below.
Readers are welcome to join a Facebook group here, for news and dialogue on themes raised in the books.

Transforming Our World From Within:
a Week-Long Online Immersion
28 November – 4 December 2020
The outer events and crises of our world are a reflection of our inner state, of our consciousness. Deep inside us, inside our relationships, our groups and communities, our world awaits our transformation. Using practices from Stephen’s higher consciousness and subtle energy work, we will inquire this week into how our world forms through us, through our fear and separateness, as well as through our longing, grief, dreams, and love.
As we practice, much is surfaced and presenced in us and between us, and is often released. As we listen, we learn how to live whilst guided from within, at the still centre of ourselves. We are more present then to the subtle nature of reality and, crucially, to the deeper context of those challenges and crises which are reflected in our world.
Through inner work, teachings and dialogue, relational exercises and subtle sensing in small intimate configurations, we will practice this week bringing more of ourselves and of our love out into the world, from within, in embodied ways. The week is an immersive opportunity for deep connection and companionship, healing and clarity, for a sense of our calling and purpose in the midst of a fragmented and fearful world.
