With your permission, I'd like to tell you a quick story about a simple pagoda in the grounds of a temple in Bangkok, built over 250 years ago.
To house a massive stone statue of the Buddha.
The statue was considered to be of little significance, and for decades, nobody paid it much attention.
Then one day a group of workers were given the job of moving the statue, and as they started to move it, something completely unexpected happened.
The stone started to crack, and the workers caught a glimpse of something gleaming brightly from beneath its surface.
They realised that what they’d thought was stone was actually plaster, and as they started chipping away at it, a beautiful statue of the Buddha made of solid gold was revealed.
It turned out that many years earlier when the country was under attack, the keepers of the Golden Buddha were afraid it would be damaged or stolen.
So they covered it with a thick layer of plaster to make it appear insignificant and without value.
As the years passed, the true nature and identity of the Buddha was forgotten, and everyone assumed it was a worthless piece of stone.
And that’s the way it stayed until the day they started to move it.
The Golden Buddha is made of solid gold, and weighs 5,500 kilograms. The gold it’s made of is worth over $250,000,000 (a quarter of a billion dollars), but the Golden Buddha itself is priceless… unique… authentic… a treasure beyond compare.
"Project Pagoda" was the code-name I used when I was creating this programme. I chose the name Project Pagoda because the pagoda was the location where the true identity of the Golden Buddha was revealed.
The priceless, unique and authentic nature of the Golden Buddha is a metaphor for YOUR true nature; a treasure beyond compare and the source of everything you want to create and experience in your life.
We’re going to be starting with the foundations (also known as ‘grounding’ or ‘mindset’). What happens when you imagine letting go of self-doubt and falling into the kind of “quiet assurance” that feels so good and that other people are naturally drawn to?
You’re going to start discovering deeper dimensions of love and connection in your relationships, from partners, friends and family to colleagues and clients. Whatever your relationship status, clarity makes it possible for you to enjoy where you are and look forward to what the future holds, whether it’s finding your soul-mate, discovering that you’re already with them, or deeply knowing that you’re going to be OK no matter what. In fact, it turns out that this is one of the most attractive qualities there is.
When you’ve got clarity in your work, you know that you’re on-track and moving in the right direction. While you’ll be able to see how your current work fits into the bigger picture of your life, you may also start to notice new possibilities coming into focus as you find greater fulfilment in whatever you’re drawn to. These days, it’s more important than ever to have the kind of perspective and balance that allow you to work, rest and play in healthy, fulfilling ways.
Experience shows that as your mental and emotion wellbeing come to the fore and unhelpful stress starts decreasing, you experience a ‘re-balancing’ of your physical health. People often find themselves eating more healthily, exercising in a way that fits with who they are and experiencing higher levels of energy and overall physical health.
What would it be like if you could feel a deep sense of security, independent of the ups and downs of your bank balance? Paradoxically, it’s this kind of “inner security” combined with your understanding of this domain and your creative process, that can allow you to create the kind of financial resources you desire.
What would it be like for your stress and worry levels to start dropping as you begin to get more and more deeply in touch with your inner source of resilience, wisdom and wellbeing? While you’ll find yourself becoming clearer about what really matters to you and start to live a life that fits you like a glove, you’ll also find yourself increasingly in love with your life as it is right now.
This is one of the “master keys” when it comes to living a life that truly inspires you, allowing you to come up with elegant solutions to complex problems and feel confident as you navigate the uncertainties of life. What happens when you imagine having the clarity of thought to have more time, get what matters done and create the results that really make a difference to you and the people you care about…
There’s something powerful about knowing what matters to you in life, and in being able to trust your inner guidance system (even during times when you don’t know exactly where you’re going). When you can trust your own guidance, then you know you’ve got everything you need to navigate life-choices, make the right decisions for you, and move forward confidently even in the face of uncertainty. This quality is the source of your ability to live your most inspiring life, rich with purpose, contribution and meaning.

'His knowledge and support have been instrumental in helping me develop my principles-based coaching business...'
"All the different areas of life (relationships, health, work...) that we focused on (during Clarity for Personal Transformation) changed for me in a flash. What I found fascinating was that the changes were easy and without effort. My mental and physical health, all my relationships (including those to money) have massively improved in the 4 months together. Funnily enough, skin problems disappeared overnight without me having to do anything. What I found most fascinating, however, was that my children changed as if by magic before my eyes. I saw them with new eyes through my insights. Jamie is a brilliant coach and knows 100 percent what people need to know about themselves so that real transformation is possible. "
"I had a great experience on Clarity for Personal Transformation. It was my in depth introduction to the principles. Jamie created the conditions for us to have a feeling of connection in the group. I had an amazing insight on the first weekend, a very powerful feeling of connection with all things and people around me, and experienced what it is to have nothing on my mind. I also found the coaching sessions with Jamie powerful – I had a particular conversation with him around why I had given up on golf, and after that conversation, I started to play again, didn’t beat myself up any more and am really enjoying it. More than I ever did before. That would not had happened had I not had that conversation. "
"I was on Jamie's Clarity for Personal Transformation (aka ‘Project Pagoda’) in 2018. As the title suggests, Pagoda is aimed at personal transformation and it formed an important part of my journey with Jamie, as I learned to let go of the stories I was telling myself about about myself. Jamie's magic is his ability to gently enable students to connect with their inner or true self and realise that they are so much more than what they think they are. For me it was a subtle process with small shifts which occurred throughout my journey - and are still occurring. The outcome which has been of immense value is that I no longer have as many issues as I did before and when things crop up I can let them go without having to put in any hard work. As Jamie would say, my understanding of how my mind works and who I truly am does all the heavy lifting."
"Coming across Jamie and Clarity concepts has a tremendous impact on my life. From the outside my life had always been in order. Education, family, kids, house, career… On the inside there was a turmoil. The inner storms, self-doubts, and my specialty – the feeling of guilt were getting unbearable. I had no idea how to deal with them, what to do with them, how to silence them. Understanding how the system works, what is really going on, putting everything in a different perspective was the key for my transformation. This key was handled to me by Jamie and Clarity programmes and I will be forever grateful for showing me the path. "
"When I first heard about Clarity for Personal Transformation, I was so excited and I just knew it was exactly what I was looking for. I had huge shifts in the area of my relationship with money, my relationship with my body and my relationship with myself. It kickstarted a journey towards healthy weight loss for me, and I was finally able to start loving my body and listening to the wisdom of what it needed and what it didn't need. I was consequently able to lose 10Kg since then, and I'm continuing to lose more weight to finally become the most healthy weight for me. I was also able to realise that I was meant for a life purpose which is far greater than myself, and it gave me the realisation that I no longer need to hide who I truly am for fear of making others uncomfortable or showing up their insecurities. This was HUGE for me. It meant I was able to dream really really big with my business vision, and I believe that is why I am now in a position where I am taking the first steps towards fulfilling a vision to create a multi-million pound global business which can make a big impact on the world. Before Pagoda, I would never have dreamed that I was 'allowed' to think this big! Clarity for Personal Transformation opened up everything inside myself which I'd been fearful to let out, and now there's no stopping me!"
