Ep. 27 Aaron Turner "State of the 3P Global Community"
Aaron was introduced to the 3 Principles as a skeptical teenager by his uncle, George Pransky. As he grew to understand more, Aaron felt like he discovered the biggest secret. He wondered why everyone didn’t know this and developed a deep desire to change that. After working with Pransky and Associates for a decade, Aaron co-founded OneThought, has been a long-term board member of 3PGC, and is currently the 3PGC Board President. Aaron shares the Board’s vision for 3PGC inclusion and expansion throughout the world.
EP34 Aaron Turner: Clarity of Mind and Relationships
Aaron Turner, Ph.D., reminds us with humor and wisdom that we're only ever up against our thinking and that we're always living in the experience of thought. It's powerful to understand how this is universal so as to not try to "beat the system". While we can't escape the way the mind works, we understand how it works so we can open to our deeper knowing and see beyond our conditioned thinking. Aaron learned this understanding from his uncle and aunt, George and Linda Pransky, and while he was skeptical of its truth and impact at first, after seeing George work with a couple, he was floored by his results. Aaron ended up joining the Pranskys' practice and helped countless people wake up to their innate capacity for clarity of mind, transforming businesses and relationships.If we can see our upset as a symptom of our disturbed mind instead of something or someone outside of ourselves, we actually, ironically, free ourselves. When we understand how our experience is created and embrace the fullness of who we are beyond our thoughts and feelings, this impacts every area of life.This episode explores:How the understanding behind the rewilding metaphor applies to everythingOur ex-factor is how we relate to our thoughtsIt is freeing to stop blaming people and things outside of us for our feelingsShow Notes:"I'm kickin' my ass do you mind?!": Jim Carrey in Liar Liar or a description of Aaron when he's believing his low-mood thinkingCuddly Duddly of the 3 Principles: referring to Dudley Moore, an English actor and comedian, who came to be known as cuddly Dudley; also how Angus endearingly referred to Aaron for his charm and lovabilityAaron Turner has a PhD in Anthropology and worked with the Pranskys as the company's CEO for 10 years. Aaron has dedicated his professional life to applying the transformative potential of an understanding of the mind to our current challenges and limitations, highlighting the direct link between people’s state of mind and their outcomes.

In this episode, we talk with Aaron Turner about the place of identity in abstract photography and art. He discusses the inspiration behind his photographic projects, and why he chose to pursue abstraction as a medium of expression. Aaron shares the reasoning behind his decision to document his family and local community, while noting the issues that need to be considered when doing so. Aaron also talks about the experience of Black photographers following the death of George Floyd and emphasises the need to readdress the mainstream narrative of photographic history and its exclusion of Black photographers. What you’ll find inside: On abstract artists who were connected to the Black Arts Movement: “On one side of their practise they were deemed, by their fellow Black artists, as not contributing to the cause. Again, because their work was kind of in that realm of geometric abstraction and so you don’t see moments of, what we call now, Black joy. ... We are not painting an image, or depicting an image of Black dignity. You’re painting triangles and squares and circles.” (7:10) “What the perception could be is that they’re trying to pass as a white artist. But if you really look into their work, and the symbols and the choices that people use in their work. Like Howardena Pindell, for example, and why she used the circle. I encourage everyone to look that up, it’s pretty fascinating. It comes from a place of her identity and her childhood. She’s not an artist trying to pass for white.” (12:18) “The feedback that I got about documenting my own community and documenting my family was that it was not serious journalism, it was not serious work, right? It wasn’t taken seriously... until you have a person like a Latoya Ruby Frazier, at least for me as an individual, I see myself in her, right? In terms of having like the wherewithal and the bravery to sort of do those things.” (16:28) “Now, I know this is probably true for a lot of photographers after what happened with George Floyd in Minnesota, and how people sorta had this - I don’t even know what you would call it because there are so many things that have happened since - but now all of a sudden Black photographers are sought after globally. To sort of go into communities and make the work when people have been trying to say you should have been sending us there in the first place all these other years ago.” (26:31) “Just because I’m Black, doesn’t mean I get all the rights and privileges of going into a Black community and documenting. I still have to do my job as a journalist, I still have to gain people’s trust. I still have to be ethical up to my standards. You know, that’s what I have to do with my family. Like I don’t get to just raise the camera up to my family, right? They have to get comfortable with me doing those things.” (36:09) “Go back in history and ask: why are things the way they are?” (40:12) “Self-publish, get the work out there yourself, don’t wait for a big publication to add authenticity to it, don’t wait for someone else to deem it valuable. Find value in it yourself.” (46:17)“I think as photographers we have to move beyond what some people describe as photoland or the photo world. Because other things are happening around us and we have to be aware of those things to be more effective at what it is that we do.” (47:05)What does photo ethics mean to Aaron?“Do unto others as you would have them done unto you. That’s a principle I was raised with and still live by to this day. It’s not always easy to do that. It’s not just as simple as saying that it’s a different world when you act out and live that. ... I think being ethical is practising empathy, in the various ways that it’s possible to do that. Put ourselves in other people’s shoes but also I think self-awareness in all interactions with people. Like being aware of the role that you play or different power dynamics or what you’re trying to accomplish by interacting with people. When you make an image of someone, what you’re taking, what they’re giving. When someone allows in their space, to spend time with them, you know, what they’re giving up, what you’re giving up, what they’re taking, what you’re taking. Maybe also like selflessness. Going into something, figuring out how it can benefit someone other than ourselves. I think that can go a long way. And so I think that also ties into, you know, why are we picking up the camera in the first place? Would we do it if we weren’t paid for it? You know, how everyone kind of comes to that way of thinking, or that understanding for themselves based on their life and decisions. So that’s what ethics is for me.” (43:07)Links:The Center for Photographers of Color Yesterday Once More Black AlchemyThe Black Arts Movement Frank BowlingHowardena PindellPassing by Nella Larsen The Imitation of LifeLatoya Ruby FrazierMatt EichReflections in Black by Deborah WillisEugene RichardsDorothea LangeGordon ParksRoy DeCaravaKerry James Marshall

Since the late 1990s, Aaron has been an integral mainstay of the extreme music underground; with a resume that boasts such notable and influential acts as Sumac, Old Man Gloom, Isis, and Mammifer. Through his musical endeavors and artistic endeavors, as well as his curatorial activities in Hydra Head and SIGE records, he has been instrumental in shaping the cultural landscape of metal and beyond.

Please join me on Tuesday, 1:00 pm Pacific, on my "Insightful Conversations with Del Adey-Jones" Facebook page, https://www.facebook.com/deladeyjones/as I welcome the wonderful Aaron Turner. Aaron has been working in the area of state of mind for 25 years. He started as a counsellor working with individuals, families and struggling couples. In every case and with every issue the key factor was people’s clarity of mind. In 2010 he founded One Thought and in the last ten years he has worked almost exclusively with leaders and organizations highlighting the central role of state of mind in leadership, sales, and day-to-day interactions.Earlier this year Aaron launched an online course in state of mind for the public to make a fundamental understanding of the mind more widely available. His hope is that as a better understanding of the mind becomes more common, resilience, well-being, contentment, richer relationships, and the many other benefits of higher levels of clarity, become more the norm than the exception in our society.*For more information on my coaching and mentoring packages please contact me at https://www.deladeyjones.com
