If you can imagine it, it has already been done!
The year ahead is seeded with great potentials as we witness huge changes and pivotal decisions being made globally. As with any period of big change, opportunities arise that have previously been considered near impossible. This year everything is to play for and we want to maximise your opportunities to get the most momentum and fulfilment from it.
Our first event of the year in February promises to leave everyone grounded in greater wisdom and more ready than ever, to take impactful action towards their OWN real life.
We have some incredible speakers, sharing their life wisdom and practices that will support you to enter your own initiation.
Here at Fourthguides we are all about wisdom as the road that leads to a fulfilling life. Forget what you think you want, it only leads to disappointment and emptiness and our lives carry way too much potential to spend time chasing illusions.
We work to support people becoming who they really are, living a life that has never been lived before, nor will be again. Our motto is “If you can imagine it, then it has already been done”. We don’t deal with the safety and boredom of living only in the known. We want you to step right onto the path of coming to life, the path of truly being born and we do this through supporting your own self initiation through the unknown.
The unknown is where life’s treasure awaits; it is the place that every real hero and heroine has travelled beyond themselves to.
Come with an open mind and who knows what treasures you’ll leave with. Narrow minds, as always, will leave disappointed.
Fourthguides was born to facilitate the creation of a better world, one in which people are fulfilled through living their own unique life purpose. It is just getting started, so if you want to be involved, get in touch, meet with us at our events and find your place in the real world.
Introducing Our Guest Speakers
Kevin Latham – Living Myth
Far from being outmoded anachronisms, existing solely to pad out the pages of yellowing, dog-eared library books, our mythic traditions are vibrant, living entities. Seeded within the fertile soil of the collective unconscious, their tendrils snake out beneath the superstructure of our minds – punching through blankets of cement to flower in the most unlikely of places. In this hour long session, Kevin Latham will examine the significance of mythology within our contemporary lives – performing one of the British Isles’ most enduring tales and inviting listeners to examine it’s spores under the microscope.”
Darren Deojee – Self Initiation in a Culture of Lost Rites
Birth the indigenous man in you through time-honoured magical connection with the ancestors. Any man who steps without an honourable and active connection to the skill and generosity of those who came before him, to their method, their process, their skill that he is wrapped in…such a man risks narcissism, arrogance and depression in equal risk and measure. Such a man believes he IS the spear, and e’er falls short, while the indigenous man know he is merely the tip, hurtling forward on a haft of ancestral power, gifts and living encouragement… such as man is loved, respected and honoured. Such a man is never alone, never isolated, and never without options. Such a man is an indigenous man and a treasure to his family and friends. Reconnect to the ancestors, return to the indigenous mind you emerged from, and find levels of sensuality, power and connection you had only dreamed of.
James Roper – Natural Dance
Natural Dance is a practice that allows us to move in an authentic and embodied way that is free from judgement. By forming a space that is receptive to new forms of physical expression, without the need to look ‘cool’ or stick to specific patterns, this form of both guided and free-style dance can allow us to find new modes of expression, shift dormant energy and help us tap into different aspects of who we are.
Charlie Mitchell – Conscious parenting for the inner and outer child
What does conscious parenting mean to you?
What would fully conscious parenting look like and feel like?
What barriers stand in our way of conscious parenting?
These are big questions that can provoke all kinds of responses from deep inside us. Whether you are currently a parent or not, we will explore what contributes to us being ‘response-able’ in different situations which can help any children in our lives, including our own inner child!
We’ll explore this incredible topic together, with you sharing only what feels comfortable.
I’ll share a bit about my experience of becoming more aware of my own parenting approach, and the steps I have taken to face and minimise destructive patterns that have been playing out for generations.
Val Sterling – Guided by Life
Val has spent his life interacting with Nature, from farming to gardening he explores the wisdom inherent in the land and within us, through not knowing. He will be sharing in his characteristically humble style, some of his beautiful and inspiring life experiences and will also be demonstrating some very simple practices that have supported him in carrying out his practical work in tune with life.

Testimonials from past events
David is a an absolute master of network-weaving and a magnet for engaged, interesting people. After just a few online discussions and attending the September event, I’ve found connections and collaborations worth moving to the opposite side of the world for, and am now setting the wheels in motion to do just that. Thank you David … and everyone!
– Kylie Stedman
I have lost count of the number of ‘initiatives’ ‘groups’ ‘sessions’ ‘seminars’ etc that have purported to be for my benefit but have actually been a means to ram a concept down my neck or sell me something. This approach allows us the space to choose, contribute and in some cases alter the direction of travel.
– Lenny McCoy
Having the opportunity to become involved with Fourthguides has allowed me to challenge my ideas about what it means to be a leader in today’s society and really explore what building a regenerative society might entail. I’ve come into contact with some truly inspirational people who have broadened my networks and introduced me to new and different ways of thinking – I’m very much looking forward to continuing my involvement and seeing what we can achieve together!
– Kat Marlow
David brings together such a rich breadth of innovative and intelligent thinkers all with the common aim of improving the society we live in. The events (both online and physical) have been inspirational, and challenged my own thinking through the provision of safe space for mutual exchange of experience, background and ideas. I couldn’t have wished for higher quality time with other attendees from such diverse walks of life.
