“Your pain, your sorrow, your doubts, your deepest longings, your fearful thoughts, are not mistakes, and they aren't asking to be healed. They are asking to be held. Here, now, lightly, in the loving arms of present awareness…” – Jeff Foster

“My session with Jeff was simply beautiful. I felt seen and heard in a way I have rarely felt before. Like a long-lost friend, he meets you exactly as you are and shares from the Heart. A real gift.'' – D.W.
This is a unique opportunity to speak privately with author/speaker Jeff Foster in the comfort of your own home via Skype, and to share, explore or discuss anything at all, in a confidential environment where you will receive close, individual attention from Jeff, and you can focus on the things that truly matter to you.
Jeff is not a therapist, a spiritual guru, or a self-help teacher. He is one who has suffered deeply and has found his own way through suffering and into presence. He provides a safe, empathic, loving space where you can be yourself, feel your feelings, and express the truth about your experience without being judged or shamed. He meets you in presence. And through exploratory dialogue, gentle inquiry, and deep listening, he guides you into a deep embrace of yourself, no matter what the circumstances of your life. He brings you back into contact with the Now, your true Home.
Some of the many topics that people have brought to Jeff in the past include:
-living in the NOW (and embracing the beautiful mess of our humanity!),
-busting myths of spiritual awakening (including the dream of a future 'enlightenment'),
-staying present in the midst of difficult feelings and bodily sensations,
-dealing with challenging, fearful and 'negative' thoughts,
-relationship difficulties, co-dependency, abandoning ourselves for others,
-grief, addictions, physical pain, depression, stress, anxiety, loneliness,
-living non-duality in everyday life, the paradox of the absolute and the relative,
-recognising ourselves as Awareness AND embracing our vulnerable, sensitive humanity.
You may prepare questions to explore with Jeff, or just call unprepared and see what happens in the present moment!
ABOUT YOUR SESSION - Please read!
At the time of your session, Jeff will be on Skype, and so please initiate a video call with him (his Skype username will be given to you when you book). You will need a webcam with a microphone, and a good internet connection. If you have any problems please contact us as soon as possible.
The sessions are 1 hour in length.
PLEASE speak with Jeff in a quiet space, with minimum distractions, to get the most from your session. Find a private room where you won't be distracted. Turn off telephones, etc, and make sure your children and pets aren't running about, so you won't have to stop mid-flow to deal with interruptions! If you don't understand technology very well, please get a friend or family member to help set up your Skype. You may wish to spend a few moments connecting deeply with the present moment before the call begins.
It may be helpful to become familiar with Jeff's teachings, if you are not already, by reading his books (e.g. The Deepest Acceptance, The Way of Rest) or some of his articles on Facebook or his website: www.lifewithoutacentre.com, though this is not essential as Jeff will always meet you exactly where you are in your process.
"I just wanted to write and say thank you once again Jeff for meeting me! I felt seen, heard, and understood in a very rare and precious way. The morning after... the world was amazing and I was so full of love." - P.S.
