"Content With Our Content"

Don Oakley will be presenting an online talk (with an opportunity for questions) via www.Zoom.com Tuesday evening June 15th at 6:30 pm EST. We have the opportunity to explore our deeper Nature during this time rather than dwelling entirely in fear and anxiety. We must, of course, take care of our bodies and be prudent to the extent we must venture out in the world, but that still leaves considerable space to venture into the mystery of our own being. With impermanence staring us in the face, motivation may be heightened to find the timeless, the unchanging, that place where fear has no foothold. 


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.

"Why don’t we just go ahead and admit to one another that we’ve all been thoroughly conditioned—by parents, teachers, friends and our past experiences. That conditioning affects our thoughts, feelings, speech and behavior. Some conditioning we like; some we don’t. And we can spend a great deal of our life energy trying to fix the conditioning that we don’t like, that is, the content of who we take ourselves to be. Perhaps, if we were content with that content, our energies could be devoted to finding out who it is that is always trying to fix that content."

Schedule & Format

These online discourses will be every Tuesday evening from 6:30 pm until 8:00 pm EST. They will be online using zoom.com. This is free to access and will be explained below. There will typically be a brief guided inquiry to start, then a spontaneous presentation by Don and an opportunity to ask questions or suggest a topic to explore.

The presentation will be non-denominational and non-dogmatic. It will be a direct inquiry into our deepest Nature. The presentations will not be sequential so you may join on any Tuesday. All are welcome.
