Spirit

Would you refer to yourself as 'Spiritual but not Religious'?
 
Are you interested in a World Spirituality drawing on all religious tradtions, but not stuck in any?
 
Do you want to have a rigorous and complete spiritual life without having to live in a monastery?
 
I have been practising meditation for over 20 years, and have a BA degree from the School of Oriental and African Studies (University of London) in the study of Eastern meditation traditions. I like meditation that is simple and effective - drawing on the most direct paths to awakening such as Tibetan Dzogchen, Zen Shikantaza, and Hindu Vedanta 'Self Enquiry'.
 
Help with meditation posture.
 
Learn to meditate while you are carrying out normal daily tasks.
 
Prayer - without having to talk to an old, bearded man who lives in the sky!
 
Visualisation - use the power of your imagination to heal and transform.
 
Understand Spirit in 1st person, 2nd person and 3rd person perspectives, as I, We and It.
 
Contemporary Non-Dual Tantra (Being and Becoming) – learn to work with the two seemingly opposing forces within you: that which is unchanging, silent, only in the present moment, and that within you that is always striving for more evolution and change.
 
I like to use practices such as Tibetan Dzogchen pointing out instructions, the Headless Way pioneered by Douglas Harding, and the Big Mind Process created by Genpo Roshi, to facilitate direct experiences of these different spiritual perspectives.
