Meeting in Nonduality with Jeff Foster. “Awakening to an Intimacy Beyond Words” What if life is infinitely simpler than you ever imagined? We spend our lives seeking wealth, success, love, fulfilment, and even ‘spiritual enlightenment’ in the future. Yet right at the heart of life there is an intimacy, a simplicity, a wholeness that is totally beyond words – and which cannot be reached through any kind of effort. In our attempts to change, to improve ourselves, or become ‘enlightened’, we end up ignoring this wordless intimacy which is our birthright and our true home.
Jeff Foster shares the timeless message of nonduality (non-separation), something that is ultimately impossible to put into words, in a simple, human and down-to-earth way, avoiding as much as possible the arcane, heavy, outdated and often self-righteous spiritual language of the past. Jeff is not affiliated with any spiritual path, teacher, tradition or lineage, and believes that the truth - that which is present and alive - is absolutely free and cannot be captured by any religion, ideology, philosophy, belief system, or person. However, perhaps it can be shared, in friendship and openness, with those who are open to going beyond their beliefs and concepts about life. With great humour, compassion and clarity, Jeff reminds us of something we have always known – that life, as it is, is a miracle… and beyond our thoughts, we are already free.
Meetings with Jeff are always very friendly and informal, and there are plenty of opportunities to ask questions, if questions arise. And of course, if you just want to sit in silence and listen, then that's fine too!
Jeff Foster graduated in Astrophysics from Cambridge University in 2001. Several years after graduation, following a period of severe depression and illness, he became addicted to the idea of ‘spiritual enlightenment’, and embarked on an intensive spiritual search which lasted for several years. The spiritual search came to an absolute end with the clear seeing that there is only ever Oneness. In the clarity of this seeing, life became what it always was: spontaneous, clear, joyful and fully alive, and Jeff began to write and talk about nonduality (which he often calls "the utterly, utterly obvious"). He holds meetings and retreats in the UK and Europe, clearly and directly pointing to the frustrations surrounding the spiritual search, to the nature of mind, and to the Clarity at the heart of everything. His uncompromising approach, full of humour and compassion, shatters the mind’s hopes for a future awakening, revealing the awakening that is always already present, right in the midst of life.
