Who are some great yellow/turq personal development teachers like Leo?

I've had some great success holding myself as a mirror to some actors. They're not quite teachers, but watching people who allow altered states of being to work through them, and whose profession by its very nature encourages the integration of the shadow can be very enlightening if you're paying attention. Andy Serkis is a great example. His sense of ego has completely escaped him, and he's fascinated by the work he does, down to the most miniscule aspects. I'll include a video below. Also, Benedict Cumberbatch. Always a phenomenal performer, and certainly well integrated. Jeff Goldblum also comes to mind, specifically the freedom and openness of his energy. Keep in mind you won't hear anything from them regarding enlightenment, but body language can also give insight if you're paying attention and listening to your own biofeedback. Doing this exercise will also amplify your intuition. Granted it's much more difficult and takes time to develop that kind of knowing.

Other than that Eckhart Tolle and Mantak Chia (probably yellow-early turq) are some of my favorites. And of course, there's Jim Carrey, too. Always fun and enlightening to see what he has to say.

If you watch this, pay attention to how free he is, and how fascinated he is by the systems he's talking about, as well as his humility.

Enlightenment. He talks about emergence theory a lot, which is a pretty solid mathematical model of quantum gravity that plugs in consciousness as the system by which all things are created (paraphrasing, may not be 100% accurate, but enlightenment doesn't break down to words). Quasicrystals are some cool shit, check it out:

Definitely worth a watch, but watch both.

Adyashanti, Alan watts, Sadhguru, Ramana Maharshi, Shinzen Young.

Alan Watts is extremely good at articulating the essence of non-duality. Ramana Maharshi and Sadhguru are just fucking sages.

People I haven't listened to, but others on this forum seem to like: Eckhart Tolle, Jed McKenna, Rupert Spira, Mooji.

"A philosopher will ask me: what do I mean by reality? Am I talking about the physical world of nature, or am I talking about a spiritual world, or what? And to that, I have a very simple answer. When we talk about the material world, that is actually a philosophical concept. So, in the same way, if I say that reality is spiritual, that’s also a philosophical concept. And reality itself is not a concept. Reality is [Alan strikes a standing bell], and we won’t give it a name"

I don't think Yellow or Turquoise necessarily synthesize many perspectives.  That's not really a condition for Yellow or Turquoise in my view.  Yellow and Turquoise appreciate perspectives but that doesn't mean that they necessarily synthesize or integrate perspectives.

Integrate the (1) psychology side of personal development work with (2) the process side of personal development work.
