Description

Self-reflection bubbled up into human consciousness twenty-five hundred years ago. This question first appeared in our western consciousness at around the same time that Siddhartha was realizing Buddha nature in Asia. Herodotus reports seeing a mystery school in Egypt and over the threshold was written “Know Yourself.” This became a theme of the Greek philosophers with Socrates at his trial declaring, “An unexamined life is not worth living.”

The problem is how to define what we are searching for. Great strides were made by those early Greeks with their explorations of the nature of reality and Self. They realized that what we call “matter” is made up of invisible “atoms.” While Aristotle gave us the first map of the human mind. .

On the other hand, Buddha just sat still. He stopped moving and determined not to move until he realized the truth. He sat for seven days and night.

Thousands of years later, through the transmission of Ramana and Papaji, silence and stopping are the gifts we can now apply in the context of self-inquiry, opening this exploration to everyone. We now have the language and the insights, coupled with the ability to stop and the transmission of silence. We can now more finely make the distinction between who we are and what we are not.

In our time together we will explore, reflect and realize the living possibility of an examined life. Together we will find the traps to freedom, the power of silence and the gateway to a life of true love.
