Philosophy is both mystical and very practical - freedom or liberation is not an abstract concept, it is the purpose of life.
I reference four main sources:
The Fourth Way - taught by Peter Ouspensky and Rodney Collin - focused on being present and self-remembering - based on the teachings of G.I. Gurdjieff.
Yoga - the eight-limb path set out by Patanjali in The Yoga Sutra (based on Samkhya philosophy); other texts like the Yoga Yajnavalkya and Yoga Vashishta.
Advaita Vedanta - non-duality - taught by masters like Ramana Maharshi; and Yoga as described in the Bhagavad Gita. And Kashmir Shaivism. Also, the Direct Path of Krishna Menon, now brought to life by Rupert Spira.
Ayurveda the ancient Indian science of holistic health and healing.
These approaches have a singular focus - abiding in our true nature of awareness (or consciousness) and living from this understanding. Freedom is our true nature.
These are different ways to profound truth - dualist and non-dualist approaches are both valid and complementary - it is only a limitation of the (formatory) mind to see them in opposition.
Over the last 32 years I have integrated these profound traditions through daily practice - which includes active and subtle techniques, acceptance and surrender, doing and non-doing. This work applies on, and mainly off the mat - hence the URL of this site. In that sense I belong to, and partake in, the community of spiritual seekers around the world.
