Your pain, your sorrow, your doubts, your deepest longings, your fearful thoughts,
are not mistakes, and they aren’t asking to be healed.
They are asking to be held. Here, now, lightly,
in the loving arms of present awareness…
– Jeff Foster
This is a unique opportunity to speak privately and in person with author/speaker Jeff Foster and to share, explore or discuss anything at all, in a confidential environment where you will receive close, individual attention from Jeff, and you can focus on the things that truly matter to you.
Jeff is not a therapist, a spiritual guru, or a self-help teacher. He is one who has suffered deeply and has found his own way through suffering and into presence. He provides a safe, empathic, loving space where you can be yourself, feel your feelings, and express the truth about your experience without being judged or shamed. He meets you in presence. And through exploratory dialogue, gentle inquiry, and deep listening, he guides you into a deep embrace of yourself, no matter what the circumstances of your life. He brings you back into contact with the Now, your true Home.
Some of the many topics that people have brought to Jeff in the past include:
- living in the NOW (and embracing the beautiful mess of our humanity!),
- busting myths of spiritual awakening (including the dream of a future ‘enlightenment’),
- staying present in the midst of difficult feelings,
- dealing with challenging and ‘negative’ thoughts,
- relationship difficulties, abandoning ourselves for others,
- grief, addictions, physical pain, depression, stress, anxiety,
- living non-duality in everyday life, the paradox of the absolute and the relative,
- recognising ourselves as Awareness AND embracing our vulnerable, sensitive humanness.
You may prepare questions to explore with Jeff, or just come unprepared and see what happens in the present moment!
A private session can be booked at:

“Thank you for offering Jeff Foster at the right time in the right place. My conversation with him 2 weeks ago has changed my perspective on things, during a particularly turbulent time in my life. Speaking with him gave me many insights that are so valuable for life. He was accessible and human…” – MS
“My one-to-one with Jeff helped me to really see that everything and anything that I ever thought about ‘enlightenment’ was just a collection of spiritual concepts or beliefs. Jeff helped me see that what I really am has no interest in whether I think I have succeeded or failed in my spiritual search. Whether I think I have ‘made it’ or not, the story goes on, and even when life is difficult, it really is OK, always…” – M.L.
“For years I was baffled and misguided by many spiritual concepts picked up along the way – then I met Jeff! All misconceptions are quickly cut off at the root with his simple clarity, compassion and humour; in conversation with him it becomes clear that separation is just another thought and we cannot be anything other than the Self, and that everything is arising in who we really are. I recommend individual sessions with Jeff especially to all confused and exhausted seekers. Thank you dear Jeff”.- J.H.
“The session with Jeff was very revealing…”- LW
“The session with Jeff was sweet and eye opening. He helped me to see clearly about fear. To stop pretending & admit who I really am; which is the capacity to allow everything that shows up in consciousness and not the story or image I am trying to hold up. We had a few lovely laughs… I felt very free to share & speak openly with him. A very sweet, gentle & loving being.” – J
“I wanted to thank you so much for our talk about my late husband … for the first time in 9 years I have peace in my heart and mind about this and its all because of you….. You have given me back a big part of my life.” – S.W.
“I enjoyed the chat with Jeff, I found Jeff easy to talk to and his responses supportive of my experiences.” – AM
“Since [our one-to-one] my life has changed. Whenever I experience something as not very nice, I see it as a wave which is passing by. Other thoughts and feelings will come, and that makes me more stable. I have even started to enjoy life! So now I have found one thing I am good at: living!” – L.G.
