Self Inquiry Group - Encinitas holds monthly meetings on the first Thursday of the month from 6PM-8PM at my house with friends who are looking for Truth / Self-Realization. We are not affliated with anything but self-inquiry.
The question of those attending the group is not "should you seek enlightenment" but "what are the best ways to go about it". What has worked, what has not worked, what is working, etc. Typical questions that can arise are “Is there a doer?”, “Is there freewill?”, “Are you thinking your thoughts?”. “Do you need to meditate formally?” We are not seeking to better our selfs but to permently change the perspective of what we are not.
This is not a self-help group. We try not to be acedemic but pragmatic. If you find yourself drawn to teachers like Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta Maharaj, Douglas Harding, Richard Rose, Eckhart Tolle, Paul Hedderman, Bart Marshall, Adyashanti, Tony Parsons, and the ancient masters of Zen, Advaita Vedanta, Yoga, and Christian Mysticism, etc, you may find the meetings interesting. We meet at the my house, when you are a member I will send you address and directions.
