Self-Knowledge Online Learning

June 16-July 28, 2019

The Self Knowledge online course is one class per week on Sundays for 6 weeks.

We will be meeting on Zoom for each class, an online meeting room that automatically records each class so you can replay and review to your hearts content.

The times are as follows:

Australia: Sunday 6-7.30 pm AEST

East Coast: U.S. Sunday 7-8.30 pm

West Coast: U.S  Sunday 4-5.30 pm

Europe: Sunday 10 – 11.30 am ( Zurich time)

South Africa: Sunday 10.00-11.30 am

The little known teachings of Self-knowledge are as old as the hills. For countless generations, since we first started asking questions about ourselves and our existence, Self-knowledge has been answering all our questions. Getting lost in religious taboo and orthodoxy its modern revival brings the timeless teaching back to life.

Having sat with my teacher through the teachings every year for 7 years (2004-2011) told to go out and teach I have been sharing the teaching ever since. 

An absolute must for anybody wanting a deeper understanding of the nature of themselves and existence. John shares these powerful teachings in an incredibly grounded, concise and calculated manner as you would expect from someone who has truly grasped and understood the full depth of what they are sharing. I would be surprised if you could find another source of this knowledge presented so clearly and succinctly and from someone who does it with such grace and humility, so unassumingly. Be prepared to have your mind seriously blown in the best possible way!– Matthew Furlonger

We’ve created a closed pop-up facebook group for course participants to catch the replay, ask questions and connect one on one with John. As soon as you sign up for the course you’ll receive a welcome email with the link to join the group as well as the Zoom links for your time zone

In our experience those who benefit the most from online learning are the most disciplined. So class times and dates should be cemented in your diary and homework is your notes of the classes sent to John in your own time.

To make sure that this is not a canned learning experience, growing our community of live online teachings we need to all show up.  Who knows you might meet some like-minded individuals. 

Please note:  If you miss attendance of two classes live online consecutively you will forfeit the right to be on the course.

‘I feel this incredible freedom that I don’t need any of the shit I thought I needed to be happy – some destination where I will magically find happiness – ha! I look at it now and it seems so stupid. … and the idea that it’s ok to have desires, that I don’t have to become some swami who lives in a cave and eats dal every meal. All the therapy to try and think myself out of my depressed state that is caused by my thinking – trying to cancel thoughts out with more thoughts – imagine how stupid this is! And then the mindfulness training, knowing that I need to detach from my thoughts but not understanding how to do that because I didn’t understand the whole happiness concept because nobody had ever explained who I am in a way that I understood.’
