Don Oakley will be presenting an pre-recorded talk January 25th at 6:30 pm EST on his You Tube Channel. These talks are an invitation to look within yourself for resolution of life's most important questions rather than a philosophical exposition. Through this communication medium, we can carefully inquire into the very nature of these questions and ourselves to find the timeless, unchanging essence that we are.

This YouTube link will become live at 6:30 PM EST on Tuesday January 25th but not before.

Don Oakley is the author of "It's Time to Wake Up Now: The Top Ten Myths that Can Hijack Spiritual Awakening," a five star rated book on Amazon, Founding Director of Well Being Foundation and Director of Adyashanti's Open Gate Sangha non-profit organization. Previous talks in this series may be found on Don's YouTube Channel.

 or on his weekly "Well Being with Don Oakley" podcasts available on iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon Music.

"Surrender is often talked about in spirituality as a possible future event. Not something to be concerned about in the near term. It sounds like an admirable thing, but the benefits aren't clear. However, it is not actually something that we do, or can do. It can happen, but any effort to surrender on our part is inevitably tainted with self-interest. Or, alternatively, we may discover that which is already surrendered and could not be otherwise."

Schedule & Format

A new pre-recorded discourse will be posted on Don's YouTube Channel every Tuesday evening 6:30 pm EDT.


These talks will remain accessible until the following Tuesday evening when a new talk will be posted.

Don will return to live Zoom programs on February 8, 2022.

The presentation will be non-denominational and non-dogmatic. It will be a direct inquiry into our deepest Nature. The presentations are not sequential, there is no charge, and all are welcome.
