Letting go of the struggle and remembering your natural happiness
4-6 September 2015
A weekend of exploration in Barcelona
with UK author/spiritual teacher Jeff Foster
“Stop waiting for the external world – objects, events, substances, circumstances – to bring you joy. Stop waiting for others to make you happy. They’re too busy waiting for happiness themselves. You’ll be waiting forever. Find a self-generating inner joy that is not dependent, a love that is undiminished by time or loss…” – Jeff Foster
Perhaps, right now, you don’t need all the answers. Perhaps, right now, there is nothing wrong with you, and there never was. Perhaps spiritual awakening is not a destination; perhaps enlightenment is not a special state reserved only for a special few. Perhaps true freedom is available to everyone, all the time.
Perhaps your life cannot go wrong. Perhaps you have always been One with Life.
Join UK author/spiritual teacher Jeff Foster for this special weekend in Barcelona. Jeff will invite you to let go of everything you think you know about yourself and the world, to drop all your assumptions about spirituality, and meet existence with fresh eyes. He will invite you to come out of your struggle, your mind’s drama, your story of past and future, and rest in presence. He will invite you to be truly alive, today.
It will be a weekend of talks, taboo-breaking meditative dialogues and restful silences; a weekend of laughter, honesty and tears; a weekend of seeing our struggles, our fears, our sufferings in a fresh new light; a weekend of resting deeply, of letting go of the exhausting search for ‘something more’. A weekend of being present with whatever arises in ourselves and each other.
Whether you are struggling with your life and are looking for peace and space amidst the chaos, or you are a healer or therapist interested in meeting your clients in a new way, this weekend is for you.
“Everything that happens in your life – including the suffering and the endless seeking – is your unique invitation to awaken from the dream of tomorrow, and profoundly embrace what is here today. There are no mistakes, when even our mistakes are cherished…” – Jeff Foster
Jeff Foster studied Astrophysics at Cambridge University. In his mid-twenties, after a long period of depression and illness, he became addicted to the idea of ‘spiritual enlightenment’ and embarked on an intensive spiritual quest for the ultimate truth of existence.
The spiritual search came crashing down with the clear recognition of the non-dual nature of everything, and the discovery of the extraordinary in the ordinary. In the clarity of this seeing, life became what it always was: intimate, open, loving and spontaneous, and Jeff was left with a deep understanding of the root illusion behind all human suffering, and a love of the present moment.
Jeff was voted #59 on Watkins Review’s 2014 list of the world’s 100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People. Jeff has published five books in over six languages. His latest book Falling in Love With Where You Are is now available from Non-Duality Press.
