This regular meeting space is provided for those interested in non-dual self enquiry in Ipswich and the surrounding area, with a particular focus on Rupert Spira's understandings and teachings. Currently we meetup on the first Sunday afternoon of each month at the Friends Meeting House here in Ipswich. More details on the group's home page.

Here you will meet others with a similar interest in self enquiry who are willing to explore direct experience as it relates to their true and intimate natures.

Rupert's very extensive and well resourced website is also worth a visit: http://non-duality.rupertspira.com/home

Also included at meetings will be insights from other past and contemporary non-dual teachers.

For the moment the meeting format will be a combination of reading aloud written accounts, listening or watching RS's or other's audio and video output, meditating and sharing experiences. As well as enjoying social contact.

Non-duality or Advaita, meaning not two, can sometimes be percieved as a very complex subject, and often presented in what appears to be contradictory messages, or as a series of conundrums. Rupert Spira's beautiful and simple  way of teaching bypasses the mind's sticking points, by taking the enquirer into the heart of their immediate experience which is distilled simply as awareness, or presence, or consciousness - and encouraging the enquirer to stay there!

In this context his approach is very accessible. Noticeably absent within Rupert's style of teaching are philosophy, religous dogma, spiritual concepts and theraputic or psychological modalities. He does not offer any kind of regular spiritual practice, instead clearly pointing towards the simple experience of awareness as the so called practice, or as a therapy. Many other reputable non-dual teachers adopt this method. This way is also referred too as the direct path or the shortened path; and even the path of no path!

Cost of the room hire, which is very moderate, will be shared amongst the participants. Hot drinks included. If agreed before hand and the weather is favourable, time with the group can also be spent outdoors in nature.

Participants are encouraged to keep a journal of their experiences. This can sometimes help create a guage of an individual's progress over time.

The discovery that peace, happiness and love are ever-present within our own Being, and completely available at every moment of experience, under all conditions, is the most important discovery that anyone can make.  R Spira
