Christopher Titmuss on “What is Enlightenment?”
Spiritual teachings offer practices about the Way to the Goal. These practices include mindfulness, meditation and reflection. The exploration of the path, the way, and the various bridges point to the end of the Path. However, there is little exploration of the Goal, of an unconditional freedom revealing wisdom and an abiding love. The knowing of the Goal reveals the highest happiness.
In this exploration, Christopher will speak about the actual knowing and living of an enlightened life. Christopher will explore the commonly held and mistaken views of enlightenment as a single experience, an outcome of constant spiritual practice or a state of human perfection.
Christopher Titmuss, a senior Buddhist teacher in the West, offers retreats and courses in three continents in the year. A former Buddhist monk, he has written numerous books. Poet and social critic, he has lived in Totnes, Devon, England since 1981.
