In colorful and direct language, Paul points to the many ways we reinforce what he calls “selfing”, urging his listeners to honestly consider the facts of their daily experience, and look beyond the pull of the past and future, and the self-reinforcing, self-importance of ego-identity. His direct, uncompromising pointing, colored with plenty of humor and laughter, doesn’t provide a refuge for entrenched conditioning and the sense of separateness, no matter how convincing that experience may be.
“‘Whatever arises in my mind, I don’t let it vouch for me. Any form of looking that focuses on an object misses the opportunity to directly be the seeing, and not identified with the object.”
Paul Hedderman has been leading workshops and holding talks for almost 30 years. His unpretentious, humorous and energetic style of street-level non-duality is honed by his years of involvement with 12-step programs and the recovery community, as well as his background in Zen, Advaita and A Course in Miracles. Paul is the author of The Escape to Everywhere and On Having Never Left, and is the subject of the DVD Traveling Lighter.
