Just This! An Introduction to Non-Duality with Mike Kewley
There is no greater mystery than this:
Being Reality ourselves,
we seek to gain Reality.
– Ramana Maharshi.
How far away is the happiness, transformation and enlightenment we seek? For many of us these goals are viewed as future experiences which can be achieved through spiritual practices, methods and beliefs. Chasing enlightenment can be a snakes and ladders game of highs and lows, break-throughs and set backs which is both thrilling, confusing and exhausting.
But what if the reality we seek is here and now, shining in plain sight? What if our seeking for a future attainment misses the Oneness, Wholeness and Intimacy available in this moment?
In this special workshop Mindfulness Teacher Mike Kewley draws upon his own experience of seeking, suffering and finding, to explore the relationship between Mindfulness, Meditation and Non-duality.
Through a series of talks, meditations and discussions Mike invites us to drop and deconstruct all of our ideas, practices and goals, to discover our own ordinary enlightenment which is closer to us than our own breath.
