Burt Harding, founder of the Awareness Foundation in Vancouver, offers a radical invitation to recognize the truth of our being as already whole and fulfilled. He reminds us of the love we really are beyond the personal stories we carry. In this way, we come to recognize what we have always known in our hearts - the beauty and wonder of our own true essence.
For over thirty five years, Burt Harding has brought numbers of people to intimacy with pure awareness. Burt is the author of 6 books, the latest is "The Four Unknown Groundbreaking facts of Reality."
Since Burt rarely travels outside his community in Vancouver (due to eyesight impairment) this workshop is an opportunity to experience his teaching firsthand in beautiful Victoria. The theme of this workshop will be based on a quote by J. Krishnamurti on "The Silent Mind", which will be distributed to participants together with a booklet by Burt.
The weekend will be structured as follows:
This will be a weekend of warmth, listening to silence and joining together in joy. Short talks will alternate with experiential exercises designed to progressively ground you in the love of your own being.
Be nobody. When you are somebody there are so many duties that even to be yourself is such a hassle. When you are nobody, you escape from every trap. It is immediate freedom!- Mooji
Burt writes articles on the subject of self discovery, of ascending the ego and recognising its forms, of love.
The psychology I have studied had to do with the human mind. It had to do with the 'becoming-process' and now, after years of study and training, I come across 'Being' as its opposite. I am confused. Can you clarify Being for me?
There is a great confusion between thought and awareness. Some people believe that awareness emerges from mind or brain, others confuse awareness with attention. Can you make clear the distinction and what awareness really is?
What happens when the body dies? Is the dream of an individual reconfigured into alternate universes? Or does honestly no one know...even awakened "ones"?
If there is something on your mind, you can talk to Burt. E-mails are free and a response is guaranteed. If you prefer, Burt offers Skype sessions in return for donations of $CAN 80-150. (Clients are asked to respect that this is his main source of income.)
