Self-Knowledge Online Learning With John Weddepohl

March 2020 Dates

“The little-known teachings of Self-knowledge are as old as the hills. For countless generations, since we first began to contemplate ourselves and our existence, Self-knowledge has answered all our questions. After getting lost in religious taboo and orthodoxy, its modern revival brings the timeless teachings back to life. 

Having sat with my teacher through the teachings every year for 7 years (2004-2011) and encouraged to go out and teach, I have been sharing this life-altering knowledge ever since.”  

– John Weddepohl

Course Structure:

In this dynamic lecture series, John takes us on a journey of understanding the Self over 7 lectures, building on the knowledge of previous sessions and uncovering false identifications of Self. Classes are held once a week on Sundays for 7 weeks on Zoom, an online meeting platform that automatically records each session so you can replay and review to your heart’s content. As each of us is different, so each course varies according to the participants, who communicate their process to the teacher through homework tasks. A final interactive session will be dedicated to clarify any questions you may have.

Please note: Our experience has shown that those who are present for the live classes, engage via the homework tasks and participate until the end of the course get the most from these lectures. The recordings are intended only to review the class and are not a suitable substitute.

We’ve created a closed pop-up facebook support 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 we encourage you to cement class times and dates in your diary. Homework includes your notes of the classes and thought processes, which should be sent to John in your own time.

To ensure this is an expansive experience and that we grow this community of live online teachings, we all need to show up and honor our commitment to understanding the Self.  Who knows – you might meet some like-minded individuals! (Not to worry, though – if you can’t make every class, the replays are available.)

‘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.’

Madeline Lipson

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!
