Thank you for letting us know!
Lasting inner fulfilment and freedom from fear can be found in this life, by discovering the nature of our own true Self. This is the essential message of the non-dual teachings (Advaita Vedanta).
There is nothing other-worldly about these teachings, they answer the natural impulse to find happiness and understanding of the world.
Our mind and senses cannot reveal to us the whole of reality, being themselves details in reality. Yet truth underlies everything we experience, and by learning to turn our attention from the contents of experience to the nature of the conscious Self, we can approach the reality of our own Being, which is at one with the reality in all - which has been called the Absolute, God, Brahman and by many other names.
The teachings are found in classic texts such as the Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads, and in essence are at the heart of all the world's wisdom traditions.
The methods include meditation and related practices, deep mindfulness, and living in a spirit of goodwill to all. They provide us with a way of finding lasting inner security and fulfilment.
This event and the teachings will be of interest to mature individuals who have begun to question the meaning and purpose of life, and understand that dedication and perseverance are needed to attain what is most worthwhile.
