Alan Lowen has been creating and leading workshops for 36 years and has established an international reputation as a premier guide for people seeking to accept, integrate and celebrate all aspects of their personal life and being. He studied psychology at London and Oxford universities, then trained in many areas of personal growth, inspired by his first mentor, Dr. Carl Rogers. Later he became a disciple of Osho Rajneesh, and lived in his ashram for 8 years, leading workshops and exploring the deepest realms of human potential. In 1986 he returned to public life and founded The Art of Being® as a path of self-realization, heart awareness, life fulfilment and spiritual awakening.
He chooses to engage with the essential personal themes of our lives – with our nature, our stories and relationships, with sex and love, with the influences on us of our birth and childhood, and with the universal experience of death and dying. Above all he invites us to honour and celebrate our own unique art of being. In 2003 he received the Kindred Spirit magazine award for his work in the field of personal transformation.
THE BEING EXPERIENCE Saturday at 12pm
To meet ourselves, existence and each other in total presence! As a great mystic once said, ‘One glimpse is a blessing’. It happens as we allow ourselves all our here-now inner experiencing and find friendliness for the full spectrum of our feelings. This is our adventure: within ourselves, with each other.
“AM I ALLOWED? Sunday at 14pm
When I feel that I am not allowed, is it because my body, heart and soul are saying “No”, or am I unconsciously obeying rules and regulations imposed by my parents, teachers, religious authorities and even my peer group? This session is about discovering the ways that you limit, avoid, devalue, or deny yourself the full spectrum of your personal experience.
