THE WAY OF REST – A Weekend of Exploration
This weekend consists of 2 full day meetings on Saturday and Sunday with themes that complement each other and together form a whole. The meetings may also be attended separately without any problem. We look forward to welcoming you!
SATURDAY MEETING THEME:
WHY AM I NOT AWAKENED OR HEALED YET?
Busting the Core Myth of Healing… and Trusting Life
“You do not heal from trauma, and nobody heals you either. You simply reconnect with that sacred place in yourself that was never traumatised, never broken, never damaged in the first place; your true Self, absolute and ever-present, innocent and free. It is not a destination; it is You, alive and awake in the moment. Know yourself as the Absolute, and let all thoughts and feelings move through you, however intense or uncomfortable. The forms pass, they always pass, and You remain. You are not broken; you are Unbreakable.”
– Jeff Foster
Jeff Foster will invite you to a paradigm shift in your understanding of awakening and healing. He will explain why healing is not a destination or a goal, but an ever-present reality. And why you are already enlightened, even if you don’t believe that. And why even your doubts and fears contain great intelligence.
He will invite you to stop trying to perfect yourself, heal yourself, fix yourself, even awaken yourself; to let go of letting go, to surrender your attempts to surrender; to stop trying to fast-forward the movie of your life, and to slow down, to breathe, to rest in presence, to trust and savour the present scene.
It gets so exhausting, doesn’t it, always trying to get there, chasing futures that never seem to arrive, living on second-hand promises? Jeff will invite you to bow deeply to yourself as you actually are, to align with Now.
You see, your pain, your sorrow, your doubts, your deepest longings, your fearful thoughts, are not mistakes or punishments, and they aren’t asking to be deleted, fixed, or healed. They are asking to be held. Here, now, lightly, in the loving arms of present awareness…
In other words, you are perfect exactly as you are … even in your imperfection!
Through heartfelt talks, intimate dialogues, guided meditations and restful silences, Jeff will guide us in his own unique, compassionate, humorous way back to the Home we never left – the present moment. He will hold a safe, loving, agenda-free space where even the most intense thoughts and feelings can be welcomed, and we can remember our original wholeness.
You don’t need to have attended one of Jeff’s previous talks to attend this one. All are welcome.

“Thank you for a wonderful day… I loved every minute of it! … Love, and lightness, that’s what I felt! The weight has fallen away, the seriousness of spirituality is gone… Surrender is the recognition that it is already allowed to give up, to let go, to not handle pain and not handle life, to not to have to cling … You were the “personification” of that surrender, of that allowance!” – A.B.
“Such a lovely, life-enhancing day. This was my first experience of Jeff on a stage. He was a wonderful mix of wise, funny, compassionate and surprising. A truly heart-warming presence. A lovely audience too, who posed often challenging questions that Jeff answered with gentle and inspiring honesty. I’d recommend such an event to anyone drawn to non-duality and the spiritual path, or those simply curious about the true nature of love and reality. Thanks to Jeff and his team for a perfect day” – J.W.
