What we'll do

We have the pleasure to welcome Alan Mann who will take us through experiments based on Douglas Harding's Headless Way.

From Alan's site :

English philosopher Douglas E. Harding, born in 1909, died 12th January 2007, developed a method of self-enquiry, sometimes called 'Headlessness' or 'seeing who you really are' ('seeing' for short). It is a contemporary investigation of the question Who am I? and shows that you can see who you really are here and now. It provides simple but deep awareness exercises that direct you to this Seeing within yourself, what I am calling Capacitie and assuming Traherne used the word in the same way. Douglas Harding's most well-known book, ‘On Having no Head’ subtitled ‘Zen and the Rediscovery of the Obvious’, was first published in 1960. To quote Amazon Books reviewer Tepi:

If you really want to grasp what all the great Indian and Tibetan and Chinese and Japanese Masters and Sages and Rishis have been trying to convey to their disciples down through the centuries, all you need do is read this short book of just eighty pages by Douglas E. Harding called 'On Having No Head'.

From the Headless Way site :

Consider this – what you are depends on the range of the observer. At several feet you appear human. At closer ranges you are cells, molecules, particles… At greater ranges you are a city perhaps, a country, the planet, the star, the galaxy…

But what are you at zero distance? In other words, what are you really?

Others cannot tell you because they always remain distant from you. But you are at your own centre so you are well-placed to look and see what you are there. But how can you do that?

Join us to meditate, inquire, discuss, have tea.
