The Unreasonable Nature of Spirit

The Unreasonable Nature of Spirit

Manifest Nirvana Teachings

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?

New Beginnings

New Beginnings

Manifest Nirvana Teachings

New Beginnings: when we awaken to enlightened awareness in a way that is deep and profound we find ourselves grounded in the knowledge that from an Absolute vantage point, every moment is a new beginning, radiating with the presence of eternity.

nonduality

The Evolution of Nonduality

Manifest Nirvana Teachings

Andrew Cohen discusses the perennial mystery of nonduality and places it in an evolutionary context, taking us on a journey into the deepest valleys and highest peaks of the most primordial of all truths.

metacrisis

The Spiritual Challenge of the Metacrisis

Michael Parfitt Teachings

Andrew Cohen explores the meaning of the metacrisis, and invites us to look at our capacity to embrace the unfathomable scale of what we face as a species. How can we find and express a deep source of spiritual strength to meet this challenge, and inspire others to do the same?

Be somebody before you can be nobody

Be Somebody Before You Can Be Nobody

Manifest Nirvana Teachings

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. Jack Engler’s famous quote resonates now more powerfully than ever, and holds a deceptively simple but valuable insight for all those who aspire to progress on a serious spiritual path.

Realisation and Transformation

Realisation and Transformation

Manifest Nirvana Teachings

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.

Evolutionary Potential

Embracing our Evolutionary Potential

Manifest Nirvana Teachings

Andrew Cohen invites us to connect with the liberating and joyous impulse to fully engage with life, free from fear or limitation. With gentle guidance, it’s possible to discover a level of trust and surrender that immediately reveals the ecstatic energy and deep intelligence of our own authentic nature – the creative principle of the cosmos itself is alive within us as a latent potential, waiting to be unleashed.

Enlightenment

Enlightenment is the Experience of the Presence of the Infinite

Manifest Nirvana Teachings

Andrew Cohen invites us to dive into inspired uncertainty as a way to hold the overwhelming complexity of the relative world. Can we find the courage to deeply interrogate our subjective experience, and recognise that in a relative context there is no final truth?
