Discover a spiritual posture that allows you to meet and embrace the immense challenges that confront us all...

Are you, like many of us, feeling a sense of enormous overwhelm? Are you weighed down or crushed by a feeling of existential dread? Does your cognitive or emotional bandwidth seem strangely limited? You are not alone!

Right now we are facing what many thought leaders have termed the “metacrisis”, but what exactly is the metacrisis? Jonathan Rowson, philosopher and co-founder of forward-thinking research organisation Perspectiva, defines it as:

“...the underlying crisis driving a multitude of crises, not just ecological collapse (which is certainly bad enough) but a range of governance and security issues, alongside global economic instability and inequality within countries, a steep rise in mental health problems and a decline in social trust... a civilisation-level wicked problem.”

This “underlying crisis” represents an existential challenge to our whole way of being human, and in turn our whole way of dealing with reality – a level of pressure on our emotional, psychological and physical systems that is unprecedented.

The deepest issue of the moment is surely finding a way to resist negativity and nihilism. Yet when we contemplate the scale of the problem, it seems beyond the reach of our usual coping strategies, and we can all too easily fall into despair and hopelessness. In this sense, the metacrisis can be seen as a spiritual predicament – a spiritual emergency.

So how can we break the link between the metacrisis and the tendency toward nihilism and despair? How do we find and express hope and positivity? Is it possible to discover a posture that can help us to embrace what seems an impossibly vast problem for any one of us individually?

We not only have this capacity, but at such a critical time for our species we also have a moral obligation to find and express it! Exploding beyond time, beyond the relative dimension, lies a mysterious absolute domain that is the wellspring of the human spirit – a deep source of metaphysical strength that allows us to face even the greatest adversity.

Over two weekends, and four intensive days of meditation and practice, Andrew Cohen will invite us to discover this for ourselves. Together we will find and realize the ultimate spiritual posture – an attitude and perspective that allows us to accept the immense scale of the issues that confront us.

Andrew will show how it is possible to embrace the unfathomable scale of the metacrisis, moving beyond nihilism, and bringing strength and positivity into the world in such a way that we can inspire others to do the same.
