FACILITATOR: Johan Koeslag’s life has been a search for something—a meaning, a direction, a sanctuary, himself, a soul journey, peace—from the time he first questioned the status quo, through traditional church, family life, work, and now. Johan has studied and taught A Course in Miracles for years.

About this event

An intimate account of spontaneous spiritual enlightenment and its implications in a life lived beyond the individual self, Perfect Brilliant Stillness is a guidebook for the more advanced spiritual seeker who is ready to go beyond popular ‘new age’ ideas to explore in depth the perennial wisdom of the non-dual tradition of Eastern spirituality. Perfect Brilliant Stillness offers an invitation to finally let go of the false sense of individual self and to go, completed, beyond.

“It is challenging, triggering, gives me goosebumps, and points to Being, What Is, the Understanding and much more. You will want to say, “I don’t ‘understand’ it at all.” and “I get it!” even though there is nothing to understand and no “I” to get it. It will be an encounter of the 3rd kind, the 5th dimension, the nth dimension, the infinite, the eternal, Oneness, …Perfect… Brilliant… Stillness…! This writing seems to go beyond the Course in Miracles in pointing closer than ever to Awakening; Understanding. ” – Johan Koeslag

Read this writing completely, then start again, and listen to the audio version, once, twice. Read and listen together, make notes of your thoughts, reactions, responses, those “I don’t get its”, follow up on the readings and books read and quoted by the author.

Then, let’s get together and share our understandings or no-understandings giving each other a different way of looking at things or thoughts that we didn’t think of before.

A PDF copy of the book can be accessed here.
