Nonduality retreat with Nic Higham
Nonduality - waking up to our natural connectedness with the whole of life
Fundamentally, the root of suffering is our perceived separateness from life, which means that we experience life through the eyes of duality. We’re pressured from inside and outside ourselves to stand out from the crowd; "Be unique, do well, have more". In particular, we seek communion with others, and we look for a sense of completion. Paradoxically, we also seek contentment in ourselves, to be at peace with a world that seems to be 'out there'. We try to achieve these aims while at the same time trying to heal the very separateness we’re striving to establish. Therefore, this underlying bewilderment and isolation fuel our society’s every pursuit: material, psychological, professional, social, and spiritual.
Innocently, we’re looking in the wrong places; assuming love, peace, acceptance - or whatever we’re seeking to be complete - is out there; seeking somewhere, something, or someone else. It’s our sense of disconnection that triggers this outward seeking.
The Three Gunas, which underpin the philosophy of mind in yogic philosophy and ayurvedic psychology, are a way of understanding the blend of qualities that create our sense of self. How can we understand, work with, and balance their forces?
Grounded, accessible, and friendly, the five full-day workshops will explore and help you to understand the patterns of the mind and how to turn it into a tool of self-remembrance. Living life mindfully and effortlessly in full awareness and spontaneity, and being deeply interested in life, cultivates the heart of this nonduality intensive.
