A place for you to be who you are
On Being You: A Simple guide to Self Enquiry.
My wish is to present a simple guide to Self Enquiry devoid of flowery verbiage and pseudo-spiritual jargon, so remaining true to this radical and life-changing “practice”.
The words on this video are taken from my book on Self Enquiry of the same title and the paintings are of places I have visited these past years. It is my heartfelt wish that you will be inspired to look further into this radical practice.
