Fully Human

A new way of using your mind
by Mike Cooney

Imagine there are parts of our minds we never use … that, if awakened, could make us so much happier, connected and alive? Imagine if awakening those parts could bring peace to the conflicts and struggles we all go through?

Enter Steve Biddulph: best-selling Aussie author and psychologist. His new book, Fully Human, explores the new concept of ‘supersense’ – the feelings beneath our feelings – which can guide us to a freer, more awake way of living than ever before! He also discusses the ‘Four Story Mansion’ – a way of using your mind that can be taught to a five-year-old, but can also help the most damaged adult.

And no, these aren’t airy-fairy, head-in-the-clouds ideas. They’re based on cutting-edge research – where therapy meets neuroscience – and they can change your life.

Steve’s a great friend of Grapevine, so it wasn’t too hard to track him down on his hometown island of Tasmania. He graciously agreed to spend time with us – sharing insights into what he describes as his most important work yet.

"The most caring, loving, sensitive, balanced article on MARRIAGE I’ve read in a long time!"

- Brian

"Your magazine should be given to every couple who gets married. I’m sure it would help them – and probably save a lot of divorces."

- Jeff

"My husband never reads this kind of thing, but Grapevine’s cover caught his eye. He sat down, devoured the whole thing, and then said to me, ‘That’s what we’re missing – I think we should get some counselling’ …"


"Your last edition was so positive and helpful and optimistic – a flicker of light at the end of the tunnel at a time when my life seemed so disappointing. I’m sure other people found it the same."


"Your latest edition on DEPRESSION really hit the spot, and helped me with some pressing needs in my personal life. I have never before felt my experience could be understood or appreciated by anyone else. Now I feel no longer alone with that lonely problem."


"I find it impossible to read most things that come through my letterbox – but I never miss Grapevine. You reach me because you are real. Thank you for your honesty and your guts to stick with it."


"Thanks for all the relationship help you offer in Grapevine. Now that I know I can change old patterns, I feel much stronger inside."
