Returning to Harmony – Cultivating the Qualities of Spiritual Awakening


Steve Taylor, PhD  

Sunday 27th November 2022 – 3pm-5pm (UK time) via Zoom

For 15 years transpersonal psychologist Steve Taylor has been researching the phenomenon spiritual awakening. In his books The Leap and Extraordinary Awakenings, he has identified a number of essential qualities of the awakened state, as well as the different ways in which awakening can occur.  In this workshop we will explore and cultivate these qualities through meditations, exercises and discussions, gaining contact with the spiritual essence of our beings, and so experiencing peace and harmony. Steve will read some of his poetic meditations to illustrate these qualities. Some of the qualities that will be explored and cultivated include:

  • Disidentification from the ego: Steve will lead some exercises which will help to disidentify with the ego-self and become rooted in a deeper spiritual identity.
  • Presence: What are the factors that stop human beings living in the present? How can we spend more time being “here” rather than elsewhere? Living in presence creates a sense of natural wellbeing and harmony.
  • Acceptance: We will practice ‘the alchemy of acceptance.’ Situations or experiences that cause resistance and frustration can be transformed through a process of acceptance.
