Join Christopher for his online course DEEP DHARMA FOR DAILY LIFE
Starting in 7 days’ time and runs for 4 weeks - February 13 – March 11
With time being a precious resource, and retreat practice not always possible, together with Realize, I’m looking forward to launching my new online course to support you in-between the times we have the pleasure to sit in person.
About the course:
Spiritual teachings offer practices about the Way to the Goal. These practices include mindfulness, meditation and reflection. The exploration of the path, the way and the various bridges point to the end of the Path.
There is little exploration of the Goal, of an unconditional freedom revealing wisdom and an abiding love.
The knowing of the Goal reveals the highest happiness.
This course consists of a deep exploration of the Goal. Each module will fully engage in the integration of the consummation of the teachings into daily life.
You might think that the Goal is far away. The Goal of all spiritual practice might be much closer than you think.
The teachings will be presented in a clear and understandable language suitable for those deeply interested in the fulfilment of spiritual practice.
We spend much of our life living in costumed truth. All the practices, methods and metaphors of the way, the path and the goal belong to costumed truth.
The Goal (Truth, Nirvana, Freedom, God, Emptiness, Reality and many other names) finds its confirmation in discovery, in realization.
A core purpose of the course is for each participant to have a ‘lightbulb moment.’
At the very least, I believe all participants will feel much closer to the Goal by the end of the four modules.
Module 1 – Freedom from Clinging
We cling to pleasure, techniques/forms, self and views.
Liberation means the end of clinging. It is not about letting go but about seeing and knowing freedom in the midst of events.
Module 2 – Freedom and Truth
Freedom and Truth share the same element. Truth includes honesty, clarity of language and seeing what is. Freedom confirms the truth of things.
Anything else is false and deceiving.
Module 3 – Freedom and Love
Both share a similar nature although, ultimately, freedom transcends love.
There are no limits to freedom and no limits to love. There is nothing romantic/idealistic about this.
We can know an authentic communication of reality.
Module 4 – Emptiness of I and My
An indispensable daily reflection.
I and my is merely a convenient shorthand for feelings/mind/body/
Four 60 minute recorded teachings filmed in high definition with teachings and experiential exercises.
Supported with Four Live Video Sessions of 60 minutes.
