In exploring Non-Duality we discover the Freedom beyond our human experience. We wake up to the knowing that we are always aware of it all. We rise out of the mud and mess of our lives, and take a bird’s eye view of our humanity. But this is only half of the picture. We then need to dive back into the mud and dirt, into the pain and rawness of the ordinary experience of being a human with our feet on the ground in the world, and discover how this Freedom is actually lived. This is what living as the Heart is all about.

True Freedom is not limited to an concept of freedom, or the freedom from any kind of imprisonment. Freedom is also not only a free feeling. The Heart is also not only about having a loving feeling in our chests, or behaving in a loving way. In fact Freedom and the Heart are one and the same. When we question who we really are, in the deepest sense, beyond all the beliefs and assumptions of what we think, we discover the Silence beyond all experience of silence. We discover the Freedom beyond all experience of freedom. We discover Boundlessness beyond all experience of boundaries. This is our true Heart.

In this weekend together, we will explore how this Heart of Freedom is actually lived in our daily experience. We will investigate what we really know to be true when we no longer blindly believe our thoughts. We will discover that in not-knowing in thought, there is the wide open Freedom of who we really are. We start to resonate more and more with the frequency of this inner knowing in not knowing, and it starts to integrate more and more into our lives. Together we explore the beliefs and identities that have seemed to have imprisoned us, with the power to control our behaviour and responses in our interactions with others. In knowing that you are not what you think, then when thoughts arise, you can see them in greater clarity and lightness. This brings so much freedom and ease in our lives. Then there is so much more space to tune into the Compassion and Unconditional Love that is always here, and this enables our lives to be lived more courageously with an open Heart.

In this weekend, Unmani will hold guided meditations, she will speak on the theme, and there will be plenty of opportunity to ask questions and have dialogues with Unmani. Unmani works in a way that is very intimate, using any personal sharing as an invitation to the Love that we are beyond it all. Everyone is welcome. No previous knowledge or background is necessary.

About Unmani
Meeting with Unmani is meeting with yourself in the most real and alive way. Unmani is originally from the UK, but has lived in many countries around the world. Since she was a child, Unmani didn’t identify with being a separate individual, but assumed there was something wrong with her, until she came across the expression of Satsang and nonduality. Truth has always been her passion. Unmani had teachers including Osho, Dolano, Nathan Gill, Tony Parsons, Gangaji and several other amazing people who are not considered ‘teachers’.

In 2013 she met her husband, the wonderful musician, and courageous lover of life, Robert Hanuman. In 2015 their son, Sky, was born. On 3rd January 2018, Robert Hanuman died suddenly from a heart attack while they were in India. Robert Hanuman’s presence deeply influenced Unmani’s teaching, and in the time they were together it evolved into a more human expression of the courage to live the paradox of the Absolute, living as this human. Robert put Unmani’s words to his beautiful classical guitar music and Unmani still plays his songs at her meetings.

Unmani has been holding meetings and retreats all over the world for since 2003, and in this time people have been deeply touched by her work: She meets each person exactly where they are at, and in whatever they need at the time, while at the same time holding them in the truth of who they really are beyond it all. This combination, and paradox, of the personal and impersonal, brings so much depth, openness and healing to people’s lives. They wake up to who they really are, and discover how this is lived and integrated into their daily lives.

Unmani has written 3 books ‘I am Life itself’, ‘Die to Love’ and ‘The Courage to Come Alive’. Unmani holds regular meetings and retreats several times a year as well as monthly webinars on different themes.
