Our self-inquiry gatherings are for ardent pilgrims. We discuss and explore the nature of what is self-evident, here, now. We expose and grok the illusory nature and appearance of the personal self and rest in the spaciousness of aware presence, just this, here, now.
We are so convinced that accumulating knowledge is beneficial. It is this knowledge that is the hindrance to seeing what is self-evident. There is nothing to be gained by investigating non-duality nor is there any gain from practicing self-inquiry. What is is all there is and isn’t. Self-inquiry will collide with and demolish the world you were taught and programmed to believe is real and lasting.
Optional reading, especially if you are new to the practice of self-inquiry:
Perfect Brilliant Stillness – David Carse
I Am That – Nisargadatta Maharaj
The Perfume of Silence – Francis Lucille
Jenny, Lynden, and I facilitate these group self-inquiry gatherings. There is no fee for our time…we only point to that which is already evident and here now. We are happy to point out how you have claimed a separate life for yourself where none exists.
Please send us a note by email to if you are joining us for the first time to see if an open seat is available, or if you need directions.
Tentative dates – subject to change. Self-inquiry group held at Anita’s botanic garden unless noted at Jenny’s or Lynden’s.
