START DATE: December 8th, 12:00 - 1:15pm
Being MySelf Book Study kick-off + Q&A with Rupert Spira, hosted by Bill Free.
Being Myself is about enlightenment, spiritual awakening, self realization, meditation, awareness, consciousness, happiness, love, relationships, psychological suffering and human predicament.
This is an invitation for those seeking to experience Divine Truth to your own inner knowing, your deepest love and understanding, your essential Self as we join in reading another non-dual masterpiece by Rupert Spira.
This is an online recorded series (via Zoom) — Join us from wherever you are!
Being Myself is a contemplative exploration of the essential nature of our self. Everyone has the sense of “being myself,“ but not everyone knows their self clearly. In most cases our sense of self is mixed up with the content of experience and, as a result, its natural condition of peace and happiness is veiled. Through investigation and analogy, the meditations in this collection take us back to our true nature again and again, until we begin to find our self naturally and effortlessly established there, as that. In time, experience loses its capacity to veil our being, and its innate peace and joy emerge from the background of experience.
The Essence of Meditation Series presents meditations on the essential non-dual understanding that lies at the heart of all the great religious and spiritual traditions, compiled from contemplations led by Rupert Spira at his meetings and retreats. This simple, contemplative approach, which encourages a clear seeing of one’s experience rather than any kind of effort or discipline, leads the reader to an experiential understanding of their own essential being and the peace and fulfillment that are inherent within it.
Rupert explores the perennial, non-dual understanding that lies at the heart of all the great religious and spiritual traditions, which is also the direct, ever-present reality of our own experience. This contemporary, experiential approach involves silent and guided meditation and conversation. Requiring no affiliation to any particular religious or spiritual tradition; only an interest in the essential nature of experience and the longing for love, peace and happiness around which most of our lives revolve.
Bill Free teaches non-duality and the Direct Path integration as a means to awaken through lectures, self-inquiry and experiential guided meditations. Bill enjoys the discovery of the Self I Am in the investigation and contemplation that reveals and embodies Pure Presence and has found this to be available to all beings when they are ready.
The Rupert Spira Book Study goes beyond a mere book club. This is a community for people yearning to have more than just a conversation about spirituality — taking you from being a reader to actually engaging in self-inquiry and spiritual investigation. You are here to allow the essential nature of consciousness to be revealed to you. Knowing the Self as God created you — experientially, not just intellectually.
In order to participate, you’ll need to own a copy of “Being Myself” (either hard copy or Kindle). We’ll cover a chapter each week for a deep, nourishing experience, and it’s suggested to stay ahead of the reading by one week so you’ll be able to connect your experience with the group.
