From an early age Rupert Spira was deeply interested in the nature of reality. For twenty years he studied the teachings of P.D.Ouspensky, J.Krishnamurti, Rumi, Shankaracharya, Ramana Maharshi, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj and Robert Adams, until he met his teacher, Francis Lucille, in 1996. Francis introduced Rupert to the teachings of Jean Klein and Atmanada Krishnamenon and, more importantly, directly indicated to him the true nature of experience.

His two books, The Transparency of Things, (sub-titled Contemplating the Nature of Experience), and Presence, in two volumes (The Art of Peace and Happiness and The Intimacy of All Experience), are a profound exploration of the non-dual nature of experience.

Rupert lives in UK and holds regular meetings and retreats in Europe and USA.

This is an excerpt from Adyashanti’s talk at the Science and Nonduality Conference 2010.
The Notion of self… Try thinking about yourself in other terms then the self…
Who is searching?

We know that each of us is unique, but science has struggled to pinpoint where, precisely, our uniqueness resides. Is it in our genes? The structure of our brains? Our genome may determine our eye color and even aspects of our personality. But our friendships, failures, and passions also shape who we are. The question is: how?

Sebastian Seung, a dynamic professor at MIT, is on a quest to discover the biological basis of identity. He believes it lies in the pattern of connections between the brain’s neurons, which change slowly over time as we learn and grow. The connectome, as it’s called, is where our genetic inheritance intersects with our life experience. It’s where nature meets nurture. Seung introduces us to the dedicated researchers who are mapping the brain’s connections, neuron by neuron, synapse by synapse. It is a monumental undertaking—the scientific equivalent of climbing Mount Everest—but if they succeed, it could reveal the basis of personality, intelligence, memory, and perhaps even mental disorders.

Many scientists speculate that people with anorexia, autism, and schizophrenia are “wired differently,” but nobody knows for sure. The brain’s wiring has never been clearly seen. In sparklingly clear prose, Seung reveals the amazing technological advances that will soon help us map connectomes. He also examines the evidence that these maps will someday allow humans to “upload” their minds into computers, achieving a kind of immortality.

Connectome is a mind-bending adventure story, told with great passion and authority. It presents a daring scientific and technological vision for at last understanding what makes us who we are. Welcome to the future of neuroscience.

Sebastian Seung is Professor of Computational Neuroscience and Physics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He received his Ph.D. in theoretical physics from Harvard University, and formerly worked at Bell Laboratories. His research on artificial intelligence and neuroscience has been published in leading scientific journals, and also featured in the New York Times, Technology Review, and the Economist. His laboratory at MIT is currently inventing technologies for mapping connections between the brain’s neurons, and investigating the hypothesis that we are all unique because we are “wired differently.”

Connectome by Sebastian Seung Book Trailer

The bold and thrilling quest to finally understand the brain—and along with it our mental afflictions, from depression to autism—by a rising star in neuroscience

Sebastian Seung
, a dynamic young professor at MIT, is at the forefront of a revolution in neuroscience. He believes that our identity lies not in our genes, but in the connections between our brain cells—our own particular wiring. Seung and a dedicated group of researchers are leading the effort to map these connections, neuron by neuron, synapse by synapse. It is a monumental effort—the scientific equivalent of climbing Mount Everest—but if they succeed, they will uncover the basis of personality, identity, intelligence, memory, and perhaps disorders such as autism and schizophrenia. Seung explains how this new map of a human “connectome” might even enable us to “upload” our brains into a computer, making us effectively immortal.

Connectome is a mind-bending adventure story, told with great passion and authority. It presents a daring scientific and technological vision for at last understanding what makes us who we are, both as individuals and as a species.

Product Description
Tears of the Buddha: Spirituality & Emotions explores the spiritual path through the lens of emotion. Director Joel Lesko interviews modern Buddhistic, Advaita or Satsang teachers to find out how their teachings apply in daily life – are emotions an impediment to spiritual growth? What about so-called unspiritual emotions like anger and hate? Do emotions trap a seeker in the personal self?

Tears is a serious look at an area of life that is often confusing and problematic for people in spiritual practices. Rather than another documentary about a teacher’s enlightenment or awakening, Tears of the Buddha questions age-old teachings about emotions and leads to an important conversation about individual selfhood – is it real or is it an illusion? Lesko shares his own experiences and interviews leading teachers including Gangaji, Eli-Jaxon-Bear, Jeff Foster, Daniel Barron, and others.

“There are only two types of people Mystics and Mistakes,” says Sadhguru,leaving readers in no doubt of the category to which they belong! That sounds damning.But mistakes can thankfully be rectified.And that is the hope this book holds out to seekers.It reminds us that each one of us can make the journey-from error to enlightenment,from self-deception to self-discovery – if only we choose.

Yogi, mystic and visionary, Sadhguru is a spiritual master with a difference. An arresting blend of profundity and pragmatism, his life and work serve as a reminder that yoga is not an esoteric discipline from an outdated past, but a contemporary science, vitally relevant to our times. Probing, passionate and provocative, insightful, logical and unfailingly witty, Sadhguru’s talks have earned him the reputation of a speaker and opinion-maker of international renown. With a celebratory engagement with life on all levels, Sadhguru’s areas of active involvement encompass fields as diverse as architecture and visual design, poetry and painting, ecology and horticulture, music and sports.

Sadhguru is also the founder of Isha Foundation, a non-profit organization which has been dedicated to the wellbeing of the individual and the world for the past three decades. Isha Foundation does not promote any particular ideology, religion, or race, but transmits inner sciences of universal appeal.

‘Sadhguru – More than a life’ – A Biography by Arundathi Subramaniam

A video intro to ‘Sadhguru – More than a life’ – A Biography by Arundhathi Subramaniam. By Penguin Publishing.

Sadhguru interviewed on ABC News

In this riveting interview on Australia’s ABC News, Sadhguru answers questions about current affairs, the economy and human well-being.

Starting with a question on corruption, Sadhguru speaks on the topic of inclusion and the role of enlarging ones identity to include a larger whole. Responding to a query about the state of the economy in Asia and India, he then touches upon how spirituality can have a positive impact on the leadership of the world.

Sensationalism in the media and the War on Terror form another key aspect of the interview, while the last question explores the role of religion and spirituality in the world.

Tobias is the entity who first appeared to Geoffrey Hoppe on an airplane in 1997. Tobias is an angelic being who has lived many lifetimes on Earth and came back through the angelic realms for what he calls the “biggest evolution of consciousness humanity has ever experienced.” He lovingly assists those who are going through spiritual transformations, seeking to integrate their divinity with their humanity, and rediscovering the God within. His spiritual and inspirational messages have been delivered through Geoffrey and Linda Hoppe for many years.

Journey of the Angels is an allegory told by Tobias through the Hoppes–his most powerful and positive statement yet: The key to spiritual transformation lies in the absolute surrender to the love of self, and in the total acceptance of everything we have chosen to experience in the density of this third-dimensional realm.

The metaphorical aspect of JOURNEY OF THE ANGELS will increase its resonance for those familiar with the Crimson Circle material and the previous messages channeled through the Hoppes: We are God also; we are sovereign, self-sustaining beings; we create our reality; there are no limitations.

“Ascension occurred in the moment when I said, ‘I Am That I Am, and I love everything about myself–without shame, without guilt, without reservation, without ifs, ands or buts.’ Ascension occurred when I surrendered into who I actually am, rather than to the aspects I had created trying to pretend I was something else. Ascension occurred when I knew within my heart that I am, I always was, and I always will be.

“We came to forget, to remember, and finally, to know. That’s who we are, why we are here, that is the path we have chosen, and our purpose for choosing.” —

Tobias

Geoffrey and Linda Hoppe are the founders of Crimson Circle, an international community of spiritually-minded people. They are the authors of Live Your Divinity and The Tobias Materials. For over fifteen years, they have channelled spiritual wisdom from ascended masters Tobias, Kuthumi Lal Singh and Adamus Saint-Germain.

Conclusion

Pub Date: July 2013


What have we not done to live forever? The critically acclaimed author of The Fruit Hunters—now an award-winning documentary film—weaves together religion, science, and mythology in a gripping exploration of the most universal of human obsessions: immortality.

Raised an atheist, Adam Leith Gollner was struck by mankind’s tireless efforts to cheat aging and death. In a narrative that pivots between profundity and hilarity, he brings us into the world of those whose lives are shaped by a belief in immortality. From a Jesuit priest on his deathbed to anti-aging researchers at Harvard, Gollner—sorting truth from absurdity—canvasses religion and science for insight, along with an array of cults, myths, and fringe figures.

He journeys to David Copperfield’s archipelago in the Bahamas, where the magician claims to have found “a liquid that reverses genes.” He attends a costume party set in the year 2068 with a group of radical life-extensionists, explores a cryonics facility, and soaks in the transformative mineral waters at the Esalen Institute. Looking to history, Gollner visits St. Augustine, Florida, where Ponce de Leon is thought to have sought the fountain of youth.

Combining immersive reporting, rigorous research, and lyrical prose, Gollner charts the rise of longevity science from its alchemical beginnings to modern-day genetic interventions. He explores the symbolic representation of eternal life and its connection to water. Interlaced throughout is a compelling meditation on the nature of belief. An incredible thinker with “the talents of an investigative journalist, poet, travel writer, and humorist grafted onto one unusual specimen” (Mary Roach, The New York Times Book Review), Adam Leith Gollner has written a rollicking and revelatory examination of our age-old notion of living forever.

Adam Leith Gollner has written for The New York Times, Gourmet, Bon Appetit, The Globe and Mail, and Good magazine. The former editor of Vice Magazine, he is also a musician and filmmaker. He lives in Montreal and Los Angeles.

There have been many interpretations and predictions about the year 2012, known as the Mayan End Time–touted in everything from books to television commercials. But what do the Mayans themselves have to say about these prophecies?

In The Mayan Ouroboros, the much-anticipated follow-up to his bestselling Serpent of Light, spiritual researcher Drunvalo Melchizdek reveals for the first time what Mayan elders have told him about this period. In this book he explains how to prepare for this transition to a new 13,000-year cycle by learning how to move out of our brain and into our hearts. He shares the Mayan insight of the importance of our heart connection to our survival and ability to thrive during these times.

Plus The Mayan Ouroboros reveals:

  • The untold positive side of the Mayan prophecies
  • The Mayan End Time–a seven-year period of transition which began in 2007
  • The magnetic pole shift that is currently affecting humans around the world
  • The new ways in which humans will begin to perceive and communicate in the world.
  • The discovery of thousands of ancient Mayan codexes that are currently being decoded by the Mayans

Drunvalo Melchizedek – The Mayan Ouroboros, Transmutation Into 4D Beings pt.1-2

Drunvalo is the author of five books including The Ancient Secret of the Flower of Life, Volumes I & II, Living in the Heart, Serpent of Light and his newest one The Mayan Ouroboros. Drunvalo is the first person in the world (in modern times) to mathematically and geometrically define the human body light body called in ancient times the Mer-Ka-Ba. He is the founder of the Flower of Life Facilitators that have been teaching his work in over 60 countries. He joins us to discuss the end of the Mayan Calendar and what the Earth is leading into as one cycle closes and another begins. Melchizedek tells us about a transformation on Earth that will take place, unlike any other. We’ll experience physical, spiritual and frequency changes as we mature and transfigure into different beings. Drunvalo also talks about the sun, crop circles, catastrophe and Atlantis.

Audio: Information on Ascension and the Merkaba

Around the world, so much is misunderstood about the Mer-Ka-Ba, the light body created by the brain that surrounds the physical body. And how the Mer-Ka-Ba is involved with ascension into a new world is also misunderstood. In this audio, we will explain essential parts of this knowledge, and also why the Mer-Ka-Ba was altered in the way that we activate it around our body. It is no longer activated manually as it was with the Flower of Life, but is now activated in the ancient manner through the heart, which is so much easier. This new/ancient teaching is called Awakening The Illuminated Heart.

What we have to say in this audio I hope will assist you in remembering the true knowledge of the heart/Mer-Ka-Ba integration, and how this will eventually lead you into a new Earth, and a new way of existing.

The portrayal of the hero in classical myths and modern films continues to exert a compelling influence on the collective imagination, entertaining and inspiring audiences the world over. On a deeper level, the myth of the hero’s adventure is recognized as a fundamental pattern of human experience itself, a symbolic expression of the individual’s struggle for greater consciousness, psychological wholeness, and spiritual realization.

In The Rebirth of the Hero, Keiron Le Grice draws on the ideas and life experiences of C. G. Jung, Joseph Campbell, and Friedrich Nietzsche to explore the spiritual journey of the modern self, from existential crisis and the “awakening of the self” to the dramatic encounter with the underworld of the psyche and the arduous labor of spiritual transformation. In a work of wide-ranging scope and penetrating insight, Le Grice analyzes scenes from a number of popular films—Jason and the Argonauts, Star Wars, The Lord of the Rings, Pan’s Labyrinth, and more—to illuminate the themes and stages of psychospiritual rebirth and individuation, helping to make the deepest of transformative experiences more readily accessible and intelligible to us all.

Drawing interchangeably on classical Greek myths, Christianity, alchemy, Romanticism, and depth psychology, the author also relates the individual’s personal journey of transformation to the relationship in Western civilization between spirit and nature, reason and instinct, and masculine and feminine. In so doing, The Rebirth of the Hero demonstrates the critical significance of the archetypal pattern of the hero not only for the individual, but also for cultural renewal and the wider spiritual transformation of our time.


Keiron Le Grice, Ph.D.
, is a guest lecturer in Jungian and Archetypal Studies at the Pacifica Graduate Institute, California, and adjunct faculty in the Philosophy, Cosmology, and Consciousness program at the California Institute of Integral Studies. He is the author of The Archetypal Cosmos and Discovering Eris, and the founding editor of Archai: The Journal of Archetypal Cosmology. Keiron was educated at the University of Leeds (B.A. honors Philosophy and Psychology) and the California Institute of Integral Studies (M.A. and Ph.D. Philosophy and Religion). In 2006, he was awarded the inaugural Joseph Campbell Research Grant from the Opus Archives at Pacifica Graduate Institute (in association with the Joseph Campbell Foundation) for furthering the work of Campbell, C. G. Jung, and James Hillman. Keiron currently lives in Wales with his wife and son.

Eli Jaxon-Bear – The Light of Consciousness

Eli Jaxon-Bear – Your Heart is Already Shining

I was born on March 24, 1957 in Providence, Rhode Island, on a Sunday, at 2:40 p.m. My mother says that my birth was extremely easy, with little pain, and that I was “completely grown up,” even as a child. In my youth (pre-teens), I was not prone to easy laughter or the common jokes that circulated among human beings. I lived in a world all by myself, thinking, feeling and being led innocently toward a life of relentless spiritual evolution. It would be many years before my spiritual sadhana, or spiritual practices, would reveal the memory of my oneness with the divine.

My parents did not hesitate to inform me that my destiny was to attend “college,” a word they spoke with joy and enthusiasm, emotions that stood out starkly in my young attention, since those emotions were so deeply absent in almost every other part of my childhood.

David Spero – The Gift of Grace

Eihei Dogen (1200-1253), among the first to transmit Zen Buddhism from China to Japan and founder of the important Soto School, was not only a profoundly influential and provocative Zen philosopher but also one of the most stimulating figures in Japanese letters.

Kazuaki Tanahashi, collaborating with several other Zen authorities, has produced sensitive and accurate translations of Dogen’s most important texts. Moon in a Dewdrop contains the key essays of the great master, as well as extensive background materials that will help Western readers to approach this significant work. There is also a selection of Dogen’s poetry, most of which has not appeared in English translation before.

Dogen’s thought runs counter to conventional logic, employing paradoxical language and startling imagery. It illuminates such fundamental concerns as the nature of time, existence, life, death, the self, and what is beyond self.
Kazuaki Tanahashi, born and trained in Japan and active in the United States since 1977, has had solo exhibitions of his calligraphic paintings internationally. He has taught East Asian calligraphy at eight international conferences of calligraphy and lettering arts. Also a peace and environmental worker for decades, he is a Fellow of the World Academy of Art and Science.

Awakening is a living transmission of silence and freedom, writes Eli Jaxon-Bear, granting final liberation to everyone. A teacher in the self-realization movements of Sri Ramana Maharshi, Sri Poonjaji, and Gangaji, Jaxon-Bear presents a unique map of egoic identification as a vehicle for self-inquiry and a final realization of freedom. Sudden Awakening puts spiritual awakening in a larger context: that it is humankind’s next evolutionary leap. Based on ancient Indian teachings and years of contemplation, this book offers the key to the possibility of ending world destruction. The book is written in clear, beautiful prose, and readers can peruse each chapter as a meditation, or as a gateway into awakening the highest self-attainable. It offers insight into the nature of the true spiritual quest and shows the traps as well as the signs of confirmation along the journey.
