- I am giving a rare lecture/talk in Liverpool on Monday September 15th. This is a free lecture, and the inaugural event of a series of lectures on ‘Spirituality and Awakening.’ It’s at St. Bride’s Church in the city centre. I’m really grateful that they have asked me to deliver the first talk. Although it’s free, you can reserve tickets here.
- My paper, ‘The Peak at the Nadir’, has just been published in the International Journal of Transpersonal Studies. It’s a summary of my research into SITEs, or ‘suffering-induced transformational experiences.’ The paper is here.
Have you ever had awakening experience? Have you experienced a shift into permanent wakefulness? Please share your experience with me via my contact form.
Here’s a selection of the essays and articles I’ve written over the last few years. Many of them have been previously published in magazines.
