More people than ever are inspired by Douglas Harding, especially by his simple experiments which show us so clearly and concretely that our real nature is not what we see in the mirror. Being with other people practising this Way, exploring the meaning of the experiments together, sharing our experiences, all help us to focus on this vision; to keep it alive as an ever present resource from which to live in our everyday world: truly a ‘meditation for the market place.’

So we invite you to come and celebrate this profound yet accessible insight with us...

RICHARD LANG and JUDY BRUCE and friends.
