Speaker Profile

Manoj Krishna trained as a doctor in India before coming to the UK to pursue a career as a spine surgeon. He left that career to write the book Understanding Me, Understanding You- an enquiry into being human, and launch the Human Wisdom Project, which aims to help people access their own wisdom which comes from self-knowledge. This can be life-changing and make the world a better place. His new book Stress Free, will launch in May 2022. The HumanWisdom App for adults launched in January 2022.

He believes that understanding ourselves and how our minds work awakens our inner intelligence, which leads to wisdom, and can lead to transformation. This understanding can prevent and solve many problems which begin in our thinking: stress, anxiety, relationships breakdown, violence, addiction and climate change. It leads to the realisation that deep down, we are the same human being because our minds function in similar ways. This results in compassion, goodness and a sense of peace. By understanding ourselves, we can understand others better, leading to fulfilling relationships. Rather than just deal with the symptoms of stress, this approach uncovers the root of it in our thinking, and can end it completely.

He works in education to bring this wisdom to children, who are the future of humanity. Our current education system only educates you about the world around us and can make you a successful doctor or bus driver, but to be an excellent human being you need a different kind of intelligence, which comes from this understanding of how our minds work.

Excerpt

Human beings across the world encounter stress in their everyday lives. Our jobs, relationships, families and a whole host of other reasons can create stressful environments. Despite how common it is, and how deteriorating it can be to our mental health, we are yet to find a way to live without stress.

We would not put up with a toothache, so why do we accept stress as a part of life? In this talk, Dr Manoj Krishna, founder of the HumanWisdom Project will explore the root causes of stress, so we can avoid it and more easily overcome it, and discover a way of living without it.

We cannot ‘think’ our way out of stress, because it’s often caused by our thinking. If we could, would stress be so common? Understanding it deeply offers the promise of freedom. It is this understanding that we call wisdom, a tool that can help us face emotions like stress without feeling overwhelmed. We can avoid the long-term effects on our mind that stress can cause like Depression, Anxiety, PTSD as well as Drug and Alcohol Abuse. We can also avoid the effects on our body like Heart disease, Abdominal problems, Sexual dysfunction, Skin problems and Obesity.

All of us react to stress differently, which is why there is no easy remedy to be stress free. It is an extremely personal reaction to our thinking, a product of our mind. There are, however, specific tools we can apply to explore our mind and its ways of thinking. When we understand ourselves, we will be able to figure out what we need to make our way out of stress. These tools like enquiry, nurturing a quiet mind, breathing and changing perspective will help us meet stress with wisdom.
