The Unreasonable Nature of Spirit

The Unreasonable Nature of Spirit

Michael Parfitt

In this provocative talk, Andrew Cohen draws on more than three decades of experience as a teacher to contemplate the unreasonable nature of spirit. In a cultural context which seems less ready than ever to embrace authentic spirituality, how can we create the appropriate “set and setting” for an uncompromising and radical journey to self-transcendence?

Metacrisis

The Spiritual Challenge of the Metacrisis

Michael Parfitt

Over two weekends and four days of intensive meditation, Andrew Cohen will invite us to discover 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.

Be Somebody Before You Can Be Nobody

Michael Parfitt

Andrew Cohen explores the apparently paradoxical relationship between the development of a strong and healthy ego, and the ability to flourish in the context of a teaching which is rooted in ego transcendence.

Realisation and Transformation

Realisation and Transformation

Michael Parfitt

If we want to mature in our spiritual practice, it’s profoundly important to stand courageously behind what we have realised, by letting go and by responding. Only then can we develop spiritual self-confidence, and allow ourselves to be transformed by our own deepest revelations about the nature of reality.
