  • The Global Bars Day was October 10th, what is this?
  • If listeners want to start improving their health today - what is the number one thing you suggest we do?

Duration: 11:30

The illustrious best-selling author and international speaker, Gary Douglas, pioneered a set of transformational life changing tools and processes known as Access Consciousness® over 20 years ago. These cutting edge tools have transformed the lives of thousands of people all over the world. In fact, his work has spread to 47 countries, with 2,000 trained facilitators worldwide. Simple but so effective, the tools facilitate people of all ages and backgrounds to help remove limitations holding them back from a full life.

Gary was born in Midwest USA and raised in San Diego, California. Although he came from a ‘normal’ middle class family, he was fascinated from an early age with the human psyche and this interest grew into a desire to assist people to ‘know what they know’ and expand into more awareness, joy and abundance. These pragmatic tools he has developed are not only being used by celebrities, corporates and teachers but also by health professionals (psychologists, chiropractors, naturopaths) to improve the health & wellbeing of their clients.

Prior to creating Access Consciousness® Gary Douglas was a successful realtor in Santa Barbara, California and also completed a psychology degree. Although he attained material wealth and was regarded as ‘successful’, his life began to lack meaning and so he began his search to find a new way forward- one that would create change in the world and in people’s lives.

Gary is the author of 8 books including the best selling novel ‘The Place’. He describes the inspiration behind the writing, “I wanted to explore the possibilities for how life could be. To allow people to know there actually is no necessity to live with the ageing, insanity, stupidity, intrigue, violence, craziness, trauma and drama we live with, as though we have no choice. ‘The Place’ is about people knowing that all things are possible. Choice is the source of creation. What if our choices can be changed in an instant? What if we could make choice more real than the decisions and stuck points we buy as real?”

Gary has an incredible level of awareness and care for all living things, “I would like people be more aware and more conscious
and to realize we need to be stewards of the earth not users and abusers of the earth. If we start to see the possibilities of what we have available to us, instead of trying to create our piece of the pie, we could create a different world.”

A vibrant 70-year-old grandfather (who is almost ‘ageless’) with a very different view on life, Gary believes we are here to
express our uniqueness and experience the ease and joy of living. He continues to inspire others, teaching across the world and making a massive contribution to the planet. He openly proclaims that for him, “life is just beginning”.

Gary also has a wide range of personal and other business interests. These include: a passion for antiques (Gary established ‘The Antique Guild’ in Brisbane, Australia in 2012) riding spirited stallions and breeding Costarricense De Paso horses, and an eco retreat in Costa Rica set to open in 2014.
