“I invite you to unpack the wrapping paper of challenge and discover what is inside!!
We will explore this question thru dharma talk, meditation, experiential play, dialog & steeping into our true nature.
We all want to be awake all the way, enjoy our lives and be compassionate. Maybe even serve this Love. Yes? True? So, why hasn’t it happened all the way?
We all hope to wake up or try to step out of suffering. Our first taste of Being frees us for a moment from mind’s identification. Our lives change. Now it’s clear where we want to pitch our tent. And, yet we still identify with many illusions.
Life/She helps us cultivate Being thru offering the most wonderful challenges. Most of us develop thru pain. They are in the department of money, relationship, our body, thought forms, and work etc. We feel separate and long for relief. Where do we rest? What do we do? Do we face what is arising? Or, relax as formless being?
It is about developing our relationship to each moment, no matter what the content is.
My own recent experience of a kidney transplant has and had many layers of challenges. Thru it all Diamond Peace carried me.
Please join me in exploring and bringing to the forefront your Humanity and Divine radiance. Discover the Beauty that you innately are! I am looking forward to sharing this day with you filled with realness and compassion.

After thirty years of intense seeking, Rupert met his primary teacher Francis Lucille, who introduced him to the direct way taught by his own teacher, Jean Klein. Rupert lives in Oxford, England, with his wife Ellen Emmet, a therapist and yoga teacher in the tradition of Kashmir Shaivism. He is the author of Presence: Volumes I and II, The Ashes of Love, The Transparency of Things and his latest book/CD set, The Light of Pure Knowing: Thirty Meditations on the Essence of Non-Duality.
“This experience of being aware has never left us. We have never ceased to be this ‘I am aware’. Just give your attention to that. Instead of shining your attention on an object — a thought, feeling, sensation or perception — shine that Awareness on the experience of being aware, in other words, on itself. Allow your attention to come back to itself, just to rest in itself. That experience is peace itself.”
