With black holes billions of times larger than our own local sun, and mysterious ‘dark’ matter lurking around out there, it’s pretty hard to fathom how and why the universe even exists – let alone being able to observe and contemplate these great, celestial features.

What is a spiritual awakening? In this inspirational talk, philosopher Tim Freke will explore exactly how to bring about an awakened state, and how you can experience this life-changing shift in consciousness for yourself.
During his talk Tim will explore …
– why spiritual awakening is the leading edge of 13.8 billion years of evolution!
– how the awakened state is completely natural and available to all of us
– why the ego is the hero not the villain of the spiritual journey
– why popular spiritual teachings that urge us to reject the mind and detach from life are misguided
– why our collective awakening is the key to political and social transformation
A monk in the city, not in a monastery or ashram? Dada Jyotirupananda, a yogic monk from a Tantric tradition, will discuss why he took the most unlikely step to become a monk and how it’s helped him find a deeper meaning to life and inner peace. More importantly, he’s been able to help many people find inner peace, without having to give up the world.
Dada will explain how meditation can be a key to dealing with the stresses and distractions all around us, and how we can get back on track to finding fulfilment. There will be a short meditation during the talk and discussion on how to take this further in your life.
