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.
If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change.- The Buddha
Burt writes articles on the subject of self discovery, of ascending the ego and recognising its forms, of love.
The Spiritual life is about opening the heart to unlearning our values, beliefs and conditioning. It is not about learning something new but looking at what is here - now as it actually is!
This might seem like a strange question but I have been reading the teachings of many masters who say that life is a game and should be enjoyed. Can you share your feelings on this?
I have watched your videos and read your scripts. I feel moved by them and something in me resonates to it all. Yet it is all new to me, is there a simple way to understand it all?
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.)
Some examples of the e-mails he receives, and his responses, are provided below.
