I went through a process of awakening that I believe manifested for the benefit of all beings. It was so excruciatingly painful that I wouldn’t have survived it if I thought otherwise.
Having popped out the other side, I experience the world and teach in quite a radically different way to anyone else. One thing that has emerged from this is a draft version of a book, describing this new way of approaching awakening and dharma.
This isn’t about transcending our challenges or detaching from society, it’s about landing in our experience, embracing our bodies and showing up in our lives in mature and engaged ways. It’s about coming alive as individuals and collectives.
Nothing beats showing up for our lives and doing the practices that will bring these heart-mind-body-souls to life, but a conceptual understanding of some of the different ways of looking at the world that these practices can bring about can help people understand the possibilities that are open to them. Hopefully this writing does just that.
Writing all of this was an intense journey fuelled by a lot of passion – please excuse all the swearing in my writing. Or enjoy it. Whatever the fuck you want.
