James is a true polymath who has a deep understanding and reverence for the philosophical traditions and reflections that have emerged globally.
James’s approach is unique in that he doesn’t simply regurgitate the teachings of these traditions. James is not you typical philosopher; he uses his extensive knowledge of philosophical teachings with an exceptional ability to perceive and utilise insights from various philosophical traditions.
James understands that everyone is different, and what resonates with one person may not resonate with another. That’s why he applies his unique perspective to connect with individuals in a way that speaks to them personally.
He believes that understanding how different philosophies and practices resonate with different personality types is crucial in offering a personalised approach that caters to individual needs. James understands that philosophical growth is a personal journey that cannot be bought or sold like a product.
He incorporates them into his own life and practice, gaining a first-hand understanding of how they can be applied to daily life. Drawing upon the values of the Stoic sage, James embodies the virtues of patience, deep commitment, seriousness, peacefulness, calmness, caution, benevolence, and wisdom. These values are not just abstract concepts to James – they are guiding principles that he applies in his everyday life.
It is an approach to spirituality that emphasizes direct experience and personal insight, rather than simply accepting information.
James sees that true spiritual understanding is not be gained through blind faith or adherence to external rules and rituals, but rather through the direct experience of one’s own consciousness and the exploration of one’s own inner being.
His impressive breadth of understanding across multiple philosophical traditions has given him a unique perspective and a deep understanding of the human experience. However, true philosophical growth is more than accumulating knowledge or mastering specific practices. It’s about embodying wisdom, awareness, and insight and applying it daily.
Being in the Zone:
“As your philosophic Mentor, I am committed to helping you to be insightful.”
“Like the morning sunlight, my mentoring approach will awaken your direction, harness your clarity of perception, manifest insightful understanding, and unlock the freedom of presence.”
James David Parker
James’ philosophic mentoring is more an experiential, practical, and transformative approach to philosophy, emphasizing direct experience, insight and realization rather than abstract theories and intellectual speculation.
“If there’s any magician today who can compare to the spellbinding Eisenheim in the film “The Illusionist,” then it is James David Parker. As with Eisenheim, there’s something otherworldly and Victorian about James, as if he’s still in touch with the timeless mysteries that others have forgotten. And like Eisenheim, James blends magic with metaphysics, illuminating it all with a profoundly moral vision. No one else is doing what James is doing.”
Dr. Greg Goode, is an internationally recognised and certified philosophical practitioner, world-renowned author on western and eastern philosophy, and a student of the mysterious arts.

“The evolution of humanity lies in its philosophical realization, which is a journey that requires dedication. It is a misconception that one can listen to philosophical teachings and instantly realize them as an actuality. Philosophical mentoring demands a strong mentor-student relationship, detached from mere concepts and emotional dependencies. Many individuals are eager to pay for a rapid transformation, which is reminiscent of a historical act of idol worship, but it is deceptive and unproductive. Genuine learning involves a down to earth and authentic letting go of limited assumptions about existence.”
“I express my creativity and practical sagacity through my philosophical, artistic, and scholarly works, all of which strive to express existence and its wonderments. At the heart of my teachings lies the insight that experience are indivisible expressions of existence. However, the unexamined energies of routine and habit often control our thoughts, emotions, and actions, leading us to believe the false notion that we are disconnected individuals, separate from the external world and those around us. To challenge this misconception, I demonstrate that everything and everyone are expressions of existence with no inherent separation. This realization highlights the primary essence in which all things occur. Join me on a journey of captivating creativity, and experience the beauty and complexity of the human experience in a whole new way.”
