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 still and know that I am god.- (unknown)
Burt writes articles on the subject of self discovery, of ascending the ego and recognising its forms, of love.
In your youtube videos you mention that seeing is all that's necessary for spiritual growth. I don't understand this - are you talking about physical seeing with the eyes or using that term as an esoteric meaning?
You say "can you imagine never have been or never going to be"? I've never experienced either of those. However, the "idea" of never going to be creates great fear in many people. If it's never been "experienced", how does the "idea" or "thought" "of never going to be", or "cease being" come from? I know you will say "the ego", all fear comes form the ego, but why does the ego create that thought?
People are addicted to pornography, cell phones, TV watching, sex, relationships and various forms of comfort and pleasure seeking, why is this so pronounced?
