 "I feel so woke! the transformation is real and cant wait to come to the next ones" - Anthony

Join us for a Members' only workshop with Richard Lang, hosted by the Psychedelic Society. Recently interviewed by Sam Harris on the Making Sense Podcast Richard Lang has been giving Headless Way workshops for over forty years. During this workshop he will guide participants through a range of awareness exercises (the Headless Way experiments) that direct attention to your wonderful True Self, the boundless, timeless awareness that you really are.

Headless Way is growing in popularity as an astonishingly simple way to notice fundamental truths about your experience, which for some people can be both thrilling and liberating. In a series of deceptively simple experiments and awareness exercises, you will have the chance to see for yourself what mystics throughout the ages have always pointed to, while gaining a deeper understanding of this direct way of seeing your True Self.

"Excellent, friendly, experiential, thought-provoking." - Thomas

CS Lewis called this approach “a work of the highest genius” and Sam Harris has mentioned it recently in both books and his podcast as a direct way of seeing ‘that makes perfect sense to me.”

The experiments were developed by the philosopher Douglas Harding, who wrote: “Though in essence the same as Zen, Sufism, and other spiritual disciplines, this way proceeds in an unusually down-to-earth fashion.” Headless way claims you are more likely to see who you really are in a few minutes of experimentation than years of years of reading, meditation or traditional spiritual practise.

Instead of these, it uses a variety of simple, non-verbal, fact-finding tests, all of them asking: how do I look to myself?

"This is like studying Non-Dual meditation but without the pain in the but of long sitting meditation as many of the experiments are active and interactive. Great workshop and well presented."
