The Man with No Head
Richard Lang and Victor Lunn-Rockliffe
Douglas harding (1909-2007) began asking the question 'Who am I?' as a young man. Rejecting his father's fundamentalist religion he decided to put aside what he'd been told about himself and look for himself at his identity. Harding made an astonishing discovery - his body was not just his human frame but was a many-levelled system ranging from the most distant galaxy to the nearest particle. At the centre of this all-inclusive onion-like structure Harding found his True Self, the formless Reality behind all his appearances.
Harding wrote many books about 'who we really are', exploring its profound implications in our lives and its connection with the core message of the world's great religions. He also invented experiments that point directly to the 'headless' Reality at our centre. Harding's work is a paradigm shift, a leap into a profoundly new way of seeing ourselves. This graphic biography reveals who this great man was and what he discovered.

This is a great and easy read and a wonderful introduction and summation of the Headless Way. I read it in a single sitting and will likely return to it again and again. It illustrates perfectly the man and his genius and the wonderful gift he made so accessible to us all direct from the One inside us all. This is a really good place to start for the curious and the perfect springboard to starting this journey of Self-discovery for those wanting to go further. Highly recommended!
I find it easy to become immersed in this impressive and moving book. It's a wonderfully effective blend of a meticulously researched script and vivid artwork. Douglas Harding's life is captured in telling detail and his work presented with great clarity and inventiveness. I open the book with a thrill of anticipation, close it amazed at the man's extraordinary questing spirit and the richness of his legacy.
This book is a delight. An uplifting and joyful account of a life's work, the complexity of a human being and the development of a profound message. Such a wonderful medium through which to convey the struggle, self-discovery and spiritual and philosophical path that led to Douglas Harding's headlessness. Highly recommended.
This book is such a gem. Thank you Richard Lang, thank you Victor Lunn-Rockliffe, and of course thank you Douglas Harding for the beautiful work. I love to read about our essence shown in pictures. I wondered if the book would deepen my realization of our true essence, because I was already aware of the headless way and its experiments. But it sure did! Especially the parts about us being one body, and about tools being extensions of our body. I recommend this book highly.
After reading this wonderful book, you feel an illustrated life is the only way that Douglas Harding's life could be properly told. The text gives a clear explanation of some complex philosophical ideas while Victor Lunn-Rockliffe's drawings beautifully evoke their cosmic scope. Well done!
This book is a masterpiece, serving both as an approachable introduction to Douglas Harding's lifework and also as a provider of interesting background information to those already familiar with Headless Seeing. The childlike nature of the graphic format is excellently suited to conveying the childlike nature of the wonderful Way Home that Harding has bequeathed to us.
The authors of this book are communicating Douglas Harding’s work in a brilliant fashion. I almost feel like I am cheating reading this book. It’s like reading a “Classics Illustrated” comic book, but in its’ simplicity and non-confrontational presentation, this book lays out truths of Seeing so profound it is not equalled by anything else I have read or studied. I cannot recommend a book more fervently, and this would be the one book I would want if I could only have one.
