'Now and again a daring soul, desiring immortality, has looked back and found themselves.' - Katha Upanishad
In the psychedelic experience it is immediately clear that notions of who you are, and what is real are neither solid nor obvious.
The oldest mystical traditions promise that to 'Know Thyself' leads to both an end to suffering and an unshakeable connection with the absolute. This four week course will guide, support and encourage you to turn yourself inside out, deconstruct all your beliefs until only the truth can survive!
Who Are You?
Drawing on tools, exercises and meditations from the ancient Upanishads to recent scientific revelations, these weeks will support, guide and encourage this incredible question that only you can answer for yourself.
You will learn very specific enquiry techniques that expand your awareness and focus your mind, as well as time tested tools that delve deeper and deeper into your core identity. Through a series of group contemplations, partnered exercises and guided meditations you can expect beliefs to be challenged, perceptions to be shifted and a fundamental evolution in your relationship to life, the universe and everything.
This work can be both liberating and exhilarating, but also challenging. Fundamental assumptions about life are swept away. This is why being in a community of people sympathetic to your endeavours is so valuable. Expect a gathering of the curious, courageous and insatiable to support and encourage on another.
"Where we had thought to travel outward, we shall come to the center of our own existence. And where we had thought to be alone, we shall be with all the world."
- Joseph Campbell

Feedback from Previous Events:
"Gradually, the more we practice with these tools and keep in touch with ourselves and what we discovered, a shift of perception undoubtedly comes. Reassured to see that we can raise and delve into topics sober that normally arise only through psychedelic experiences." - Alex
