In stripping away the flowery language, the sugar coating so to speak, the author is aware that he is presenting Self Enquiry as the challenging Practice it is designed to be, directly, “in the raw”. But then this will take you to an important question: Who or what is being challenged? What is it within you that creates this resistance, doubt and fear? This is your first opportunity to go to the source, to step back from this anxiety and concern and see it for what it is: the many-layered mind with all its attachments continuing its game-playing in an effort to remain in control. In being prepared to swallow what seems to be a bitter pill you are taken directly to what matters: the path to Truth.

Born in 1949 I have been a painter and writer throughout my life. Inspired by nature in front of the living, vibrant landscape painting has always been a connection with our precious Earth and an act of deep meditation.I specialise in gouache and oil painting and use my work to illustrate my published articles and books.
In 2004 I was honoured to receive the Sannyasin name Tathagat from the Osho Leela Community, a name I continue to use in my work in Self Enquiry.I am a qualified Reiki Practitioner (2005, Shekinashram, Glastonbury).
A life-long interest in meditation has culminated in a deepening understanding of Self Enquiry with my first book published on this Practice in 2010. I have also published articles on SE in Kindred Spirit and Watkins Mind Body Spirit Magazines.
I live in Bridgwater, Somerset with my daughter Jennifer. From here I pursue a combined programme of creative activity and meditation taught to others through retreats and Satsang.
