“Whatever it is, stop trying to figure it out now. Let it remain
unresolved a little while. Stop trying to fast-forward to the ‘answer’
scene in the movie of your life; trust the present scene of ‘no answer
yet’. Allow the question itself space to breathe and be fertilised. Relax
into the mysterious ground of Now.”
~ Jeff Foster
AN INVITATION TO REST…
Join British author/teacher Jeff Foster in London for a day of intimate
conversation, restful meditative silence and deep exploration and
experience in letting go of the exhausting search for ‘something
more’. Together, we will shed light on the activity of the separate self,
expose the myths of spiritual awakening and nonduality, and rest
deeply in presence.
We try so hard to control and understand life, don’t we? We try to fit
in, to succeed, to reach our goals. We try so hard to be perfect, to be
happy, even to be enlightened or awakened, yet often we can feel so
far away from where we think we ‘should’ be. Often, no matter how
hard we try, life doesn’t go according to our plans. Sometimes we feel
exhausted, fed up, or lost. We feel like a failed ‘self’, so far from home.
We long to rest deeply, but we just don’t know how…
Jeff’s message is this: You were always perfect from the very
beginning – perfect in your total imperfection! Your imperfections,
your quirks, your flaws, your weirdness, your unique and
irreplaceable flavours, were what made you so loveable, so human,
so real, so relatable. Even in your imperfection, even in your pain, you
are always a perfect expression of life, a beloved child of the
universe, a complete work of art, unique in all the world and
deserving of all the riches of life.
Join Jeff Foster for a day of seeing your struggle, your fears, your
suffering in a new light. Permission to rest deeply, no matter what is
going on in the story of your life. A day to fall in love with where you
ABOUT 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.
