The Ways of Liberation

What are the Ways of Liberation?

By clicking on the links above you can read about some of the main 'ways': their origins and relevance now, plus some further reading if you are curious. It is work in progress, and in the near future will include sections on 20th Century Mystics, Native American 'ways' and the Sufis. Meanwhile read at your leisure.

1. Reality and Perception

2. Buddhism and Self

3. Mindfulness and Zen

4. Taoism and Non-doing


In addition, below is an annotated version of a talk I gave at the Mental Wealth Festival organised by The City Literary Institute on the 14th September 2017. Many thanks to the organisers of this event and to those who participated

Finally in the Mind/Body section you will find essays which explore some of the newer frontiers in our understanding of the mind/body relationship, and their parallels to some much older knowledge. Enjoy.
