Living Enlightenment : Crazy Wisdom for Crazy Times
A Series of public talks throughout the North Island from 2 October – 8 October 2015 with Yanchiji

What Is Enlightenment?
What does it mean for you to be awake and fully human in the world?
What gets in the way of your natural free state

New Zealand born wisdom teacher, Yanchiji explores these and other themes in a series of public talks throughout the North Island from 2 October – 8 October 2015.

“Your Inherent Being, or True Self arises in the good soil of Freedom, Spontaneity, Inclusiveness, Heart-felt Gratitude and Love.” – Yanchiji

What is enlightenment or awakening? In an evening of discourse free of dogma and religion, Yanchiji offers a fresh examination of the nature of enlightenment, the inherent myths around it and what it means to be a full human being.
Yanchiji’s straight forward approach allows us to challenge and see through the beliefs that have kept us from living as free, fully feeling human beings.
Yanchiji offers you an opportunity to re-discover your inherent OKness. and your natural capacity for awakening. Rather than being some future goal, Yanchiji shows awakening to be available to us all, here and now.
Yanchiji celebrates, stimulates and encourages critical thinking in all aspects of our lives. What holds us back from living as vital, vulnerable and full human beings right now? What impact does this holding back have on us, our society and the planet?

Yanchiji encourages a full exploration of ourselves, culture and the conventions we have set up that stop us serving each other, the planet and life itself.
Topics covered in his talks include…
The myths around enlightenment
The politics of enlightenment
The vitality of Life
The conundrums of food, sex and money
The real meaning of community

“You are not just a separate conscious body existing in the midst of all other different bodies, objects, and conditions. You are Consciousness arising in the form of the body, as are all objects and conditions.” – Yanchiji
