Anthony Paul Moo-Young, known as Mooji, was born on 29 January 1954 in Port Antonio, Jamaica. In 1969, he moved to the UK and lived in Brixton, London. Anthony worked in London’s ‘West End’ as a street portrait artist for many years, then as a painter and a stained glass artist, and later as a teacher at Brixton College. For a long time, he was well known as Tony Moo, but is now affectionately known as Mooji* by the many seekers and friends who visited him.

Mooji is a direct disciple of Sri Harilal Poonja, the renowned advaita master, or Papaji, as his followers call him. In 1987, a chance meeting with a Christian mystic was to be a life-changing encounter for Mooji. It brought him, through prayer, into the direct experience of the Divine within. Within a short period, he experienced a radical shift in consciousness so profound that outwardly, he seemed, to many who knew him, to be an entirely different person. As his spiritual consciousness awakened, a deep inner transformation began which unfolded in the form of many miraculous experiences and mystical insights. He felt a strong wind of change blowing through his life which brought with it a deep urge to surrender completely to divine will. Shortly after, he stopped teaching, left his home and began a life of quiet simplicity and surrender to the will of God as it manifested spontaneously within him. A great peace entered his being, and has remained ever since.

Quotes from this Video:

“The enlightened view shows us that each thing and each being is of infinite value. Each being and each thing is a manifestation of God, of the divine, and when we really see this — not just as an idea or a concept — it’s a way of falling in love with the world, with all of its imperfections.” –Adyashanti

“A wonderful contemplation that relates directly to peace is ‘How might I orient in my life to a sense of what I regard as meaningful and precious?’” –Mukti

“The Peace Room is about how we interact with all of life, and bringing the more enlightened way of being into the world.” –Adyashanti

“One of my focuses is really to help those who are listening into a sense of attunement to what is valuable, into a journey of greater consciousness and direct experience, into knowledge through our being of what is important, and how to recognize that, nurture that, and bring it forward.” –Mukti

Adyashanti Points Directly to the ONE (Must Listen)

Published on Aug 25, 2017

 How do you rest as awareness? Do you have to do anything to rest as awareness? Adyashanti invites you into this exploration of what it means to ‘rest as awareness.’ As you relinquish the mind’s desire to constantly be doing or understanding something, you can step out of the egoic mind state and into all-inclusive awareness.

Video Excerpted from “Rest As Awareness”(DVD #48):

http://bit.ly/2vaPw9r

Quotes from this Video:

“’Resting as awareness’ isn’t a state of doing, it’s a state of being.”

“Awareness isn’t being the watcher and it’s not really being the witness — both of those are things that egos do.”

“If resting as awareness actually happens, then at some point it will dawn on you that you and awareness are not two different things.”

“Awareness is much more what you are than all the ideas that you ever had about yourself in your life.”

Do you ever notice that you never think yourself into moments of revelation? Adyashanti explores the importance of having a foundation in your spiritual life that is not based on words. Listening beneath the words and ideas, there is a quiet, still space of awareness that is always available. Relaxing into this foundational stillness allows for moments of revelation to find you.

Video Excerpted From “The Full Aliveness of Being”:

http://bit.ly/2u5AoWq

Quotes from this Video:

“It is important to have a foundation in your spiritual life that is something other than words, ideas, and spiritual philosophies.”

“Be still means to stop interfering with what’s happening.”

“You’ll be amazed that when you have a little bit of foundation of being quiet now and then, that you can listen to anything from a much deeper place.”

“When you are listening from that deep place, that’s not trying to acquire anything, it’s a very pregnant ground. It’s a place where moments of insight – that’s where they come from. Moments of insight come from that place of silence.”

Devaji details his path to removing egoic concerns, answering questions about Shakti Transmission and letting go of beliefs and thought

This talk was recorded at Science and Nonduality Gathering in Titignano, Italy in 2016. 

Jac O’Keeffe experienced a spontaneous, inner awakening in 1997. Her third eye opened, and her life dramatically changed course. She left a successful career pioneering community arts policy at the national level in Ireland to begin a substantial, healing practice, which progressed into residential retreats that explored the spiritual causes underpinning clinical depression. 

In 2003, she closed her practice, left her Western lifestyle, and eventually moved to India. Intense spiritual practice led to a two year period without thoughts. Spiritual wisdom developed, and Jac now guides others in her teachings and publications to transcend dual and non dual perspectives, and prepares spiritual teachers for liberation. http:// www.jac-okeeffe.com

Adyashanti explores the intimacy that emerges from the unified, lived experience of undifferentiated being. Within this unified field of being — which is beyond the concept of a merged state — an uncaused sense of well-being and love takes hold, and lets you experience the sorrows and the joys of life in a very intimate way.
