Journey of no Distance
A year long program
comprising 6 weekend workshops
How does peace, happiness, justice and mutual well being arise in our world?
Put simply ....Our world is the way it is..... because we humans are the way we are.
When we change... our world changes.
We are the problem.... we are the solution
The Journey of no Distance program is a response to these notions
for those who are willing to be the change.
These 6 workshops offer a workable pathway
of awakening and transformation
that establishes its presence in our personal and professional lives.
This program represents an opportunity to go beyond
the internal landscape of what we know of ourselves,
to explore and understand our addictive patterns embedded
in our mind, that when energized by emotion forms
the separated sense of self we call the EGO.
This global collective of mind, emotion and EGO
has dominion over the earth
and is the creator of our problems
The JOND program progressively introduces practices
that reveal a spaciousness
in which our embedded patterns are revealed.
Only when we understand what we do....
can we pass beyond.
Silent, formless, ever present, interconnected awareness is beyond.
When we reside in that... our inner world changes
and so does the world around us,
in our experience, in our relationships, in our work
and in the way we relate to our earth
This is a program for individuals, companies and government.
6 workshops over 2023/2024
The Journey of no distance program explores our experience in 6 primary realms of our lives.
We explore, illuminate, practice and in a growing familiarity with spaciousness find ourselves progressively released from the embedded thoughts feelings and concepts we have of who we are.
Take you seat
A commitment to self, others and the planet W1
We explore the nature of the internal and external landscape of our life, together with our willingness to meet the challenges that arise in us and before us.
We question where our willingness meets resistance and why. To what do we cling?
With what clarity we possess we begin. We make our commitment to this inner journey beyond for self, for others and our planet and within our new understanding of meditation and begin our practice.
Stepping into the Fire
The fire of truth that burns away obstructions W2
Truth is like poetry... no-one likes poetry
(heard in a bar close to Wall Street ~New York)
Awareness knows only truth. When our mind is our only residence everything is justifiable, everything is negotiable to protect who we think we are.
If we are to make any progress in this work we have to stop making excuses, stop justifying ourselves for this is the fabric of the prison we have created for ourselves and we obstruct our knowing of oneness.
Intimacy and relationship
Meeting beyond mind W3
The mind is only capable of knowing duality ... you and me, this and that, separated by our senses and their perceptions.
Beyond mind there is no boundary no separation.
When we know something of this we experience intimacy not just with our partner but with all life and our world changes.
This work takes us beyond vulnerability, beyond fear, into spontaneous authenticity.
The way of beauty
Silent awareness bestows peace in the heart W4
As we progressively awaken to silent awareness it bestows peace and happiness in our experience.
From this a warmth arises in the heart which is the foundation of compassion. Compassion is the experience that re-connects us within ourselves and and transforms our actions in our world
Making friends with death
A meeting with earthly impermanence W5
Clinging to life is the most fundamental of all fears.
In this journey the caterpillar in us dies for the butterfly to live and take flight.
We will repeatedly meet old identities and recognise that they no longer serve. Their costume is to tight. It is time to let it go. In this let go we understand death as a gateway to more and in that rest in peace.
Releasing ourselves into life
Life as love in action W6
Most of us live a life of constriction sculpted by mind, our Egoic patterns and identities we have created.
When that activity no longer fill the space we begin to meet life in a spontaneous creative innocence where fearless life supporting action naturally arises.
In this way we take a new seat on earth and become the change.
