|Jeff Foster graduated in Astrophysics from Cambridge University in 2001. Several years after graduation, following a period of severe depression and illness, he became addicted to the idea of 'spiritual enlightenment' and embarked on an intensive spiritual search which lasted for several years. The spiritual search came to an absolute end with the clear seeing that there is only ever Oneness. In the clarity of this seeing, life became what it always was: spontaneous, clear, joyful and fully alive, and Jeff began to write and talk about nonduality, which he often calls 'the utterly, utterly obvious'. He now holds meetings and retreats around the world, clearly and directly pointing to the frustrations surrounding the spiritual search, to the nature of mind, and to the Clarity at the heart of everything. His uncompromising approach, full of humor and compassion, shatters the mindís hopes for a future awakening, revealing the awakening that is always already present, right in the midst of life.
Using simple language and drawing on both personal experience and age-old wisdom, Jeff shares the possibility of waking up from the dream of separation. The possibility of absolute freedom, right in the midst of this ordinary life. The possibility that the spiritual search, and indeed all seeking of the mind, can come to an end once and for all. And in the falling away of the seeking, what is revealed is a wholeness that the separate seeker could never find.
It's a direct recognition of who you really are, beyond all thoughts and ideas of yourself, beyond time and space, beyond your life and the world surrounding you. It's a plunge into unconditional love. It's liberation. It's coming home.
