Self Enquiry: A Four Week Online Course
"Now and again a daring soul, desiring immortality, has looked back and found themselves." - Katha Upanishad
Join us online for a four week exploration of your deepest essence.
The oldest mystical traditions promise that to 'Know Thyself' leads to both an end to suffering and unshakeable conviction. In the psychedelic experience it is immediately clear that notions of who you are, and what is real are neither solid nor obvious.
This four week live online course will guide, support and encourage you to turn yourself inside out, deconstruct all your beliefs, burning away illusions until only the truth can survive.
Who or What Are You?
This fundamental questions will be supported by by tools, exercises and meditations from the most ancient traditions to recent scientific insights. These weeks will support, guide and encourage this incredible question that only you can answer for yourself.
You will learn very specific enquiry techniques that expand your awareness and focus your mind, as well as time tested tools that delve deeper and deeper into your core identity. Through a series of group contemplations, partnered exercises and guided meditations you can expect beliefs to be challenged, perceptions to be shifted and a fundamental evolution in your relationship to life, the universe and everything.
This work can be both liberating and exhilarating, but also challenging. Fundamental assumptions are swept away. Being in a community of people sympathetic to your endeavours is incredibly valuable. Expect a gathering of the curious, courageous and insatiable to support and encourage on another.
"Where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world."
- Joseph Campbell
Isolation, seclusion and interruption to normal routine are time honoured traditions amongst mystics and meditators. Now is a unique moment in history when being alone can combine with being together. We will meet on Zoom, an online platform similar to skype but better for groups.
Its important to treat this time with respect - create a quiet safe space where you won't be interrupted. Use your computer rather than a phone so the display is clear and so that your hands can be free. Get the lighting right, and have a notepad, some water and sit comfortably, upright and ready for adventure. I look forward to you joining.

Feedback from Previous Events:
"Gradually, the more we practice with these tools and keep in touch with ourselves and what we discovered, a shift of perception undoubtedly comes. Reassured to see that we can raise and delve into topics sober that normally arise only through psychedelic experiences." - Alex
