Who are you really?
Richard Lang wants to help you discover the answer to that question in his profound workshop, "The Headless Way".

Richard Lang will guide you through the simple but powerful Headless Way experiments invented by the philosopher Douglas Harding, author of "On Having No Head". These experiments will test an astonishing claim about you - that, at your core, you are absolutely different from what you appear to be from a distance. At a deeper level, you are really The Awake No-Thing that has capacity for everything.
Put in traditional, spiritual language, while you in appear human, you are really divine. Your True Self is God, Buddha-Nature, the One Self - choose your name!
Richard will not ask you to believe this - he will invite you to test this claim, to look directly into your center for yourself to see if it is true. The Headless Way experiments show you exactly where to look.
Looking, and finding your True Self, and living in conscious awareness of this boundless, timeless Treasure, is life-changing. When you see Who you really are, you discover you are one with the Source of all things. What greater discovery is there than this?
During the day Richard will guide everyone through the experiments - the breakthrough awareness exercises that point to our True Nature. Then, in the evening Richard will take us step by step from the experiments into movement and dance - a wonderful opportunity to consciously be the Stillness from which the dance unfolds.
It is possible to attend the morning and afternoon sessions and not the evening.
NOTE: Participation in the evening requires attendance of the daytime workshop.
No registration is required for the Sunday Morning, February 17 gathering.
