The Art of Awakening

With Jonny Baker in Teddington, London TW11

Saturday, 14th October 2017  – 10:30am – 5.30pm

What does it mean to be awakened? Can it happen to anyone? How can we make it a reality in our lives? In this workshop we will examine our ideas of what awakening and enlightenment are, and look at what they are in actual experience. The different stages of awakening will be introduced and explored, so we can see clearly what different teachers and traditions are talking about when they use these terms. This workshop is a practical introduction to a variety of approaches to bringing us to a place where awakening to our true nature becomes possible. Using powerful and effective awareness exercises and meditations, we will explore the nature of the mind, going beyond our beliefs about ourselves and seeing what the true nature of our experience is, and what awakening or enlightenment really are.

Art of Awakening Evenings

 

Fridays in June 2017, Hove, East Sussex UK

Essence, 86 Church Road, Hove BN3 2EB

Many people are fascinated and excited by the idea and the possibility of awakening, yet there can be a lot of confusion around what it is and if it is really achievable. In these Friday night meetings Jonny Baker will be offering an overview of what is meant by ‘Awakening’ or ‘Enlightenment’ in different teachings, showing how different approaches, while sometimes appearing to contradict each other, can offer a way of relating to experience that leads us to a fundamental shift in perception, an awakening to a way of being that allows us to be who we truly are.

In these meetings we will explore some highly effective methods for bringing us to a place where liberation moves from possibility to reality. Looking at the nature of the mind, and opening ourselves to life, we begin to see how we can go beyond our beliefs about ourselves and see what the true nature of our experience is, and what awakening or enlightenment really are.

Everyone is welcome, whether you are new to the investigation and search for liberation or have been following some kind of path for many years.

7 – 9pm every Friday evening in June 2017
Fridays 2nd – 9th – 16th – 23rd – 30th June
Drop-in, no need to book.
£10 per evening (concessions available, please ask)

Mindfulness for Ultimate Wellbeing

Wednesdays and Thursdays    4 – 5.30pm   starts 15th March 2017 for 4 weeks

at: Wonderland Healing Centre, Koh Phangan, Thailand

Mindfulness is a natural human quality, the ability to be present, awake and aware in the present moment. The practice of mindfulness, which originates from Buddhist teachings, enables us to discover the wonder of our everyday experience through simply noticing, fully, what is happening. Mindfulness enables us to be more aware of situations that cause stress and anxiety and how we respond to them. As we develop more awareness we can find that our responses change and stressful situations become easier to deal with. We can learn not to identify with thoughts and feelings and so become less affected by the things that would previously cause us to feel fear and anxiety. Increasing our awareness of mind and body can also lead to physical healing and deep relaxation.

These twice-weekly, drop-in classes will introduce a broad range of ways in which we can come to a deeper awareness and transformation of our body, heart and mind.

A Path of Freedom workshop

Sunday 23rd October 1pm – 5pm

Fitness 2000, Southtown Road, Great Yarmouth, Norfolk NR31 0JR

cost: £30

 

We all have the potential to experience much greater levels of well being than we probably realise. What is commonly known as ‘Awakening’ or ‘Enlightenment’ could be considered the ultimate state of well being. It is a fundamental shift in our relationship with ourselves that brings us to deeper and deeper levels of freedom and peace, an awareness that we are not separate, discrete individuals, but part of a wonderful, rich and diverse whole. This shift is not something that only happens to exceptional people, but is accessible to all of us.

This 4 hour workshop is a practical introduction to non-dual awareness, meditation and the possibility of awakening. Using a variety of awareness exercises and meditations we will explore the nature of the mind, going beyond our beliefs about ourselves and seeing what the true nature of our experience is, and what Awakening or Enlightenment really are.
