This month’s topic:

Integral Spirituality

Discover new dimensions of awakening in this introduction to Integral Spirituality. It is a great taster for the Integral Spirituality four week online course starting October 17th.

An integral spirituality approach combines authentic lineage teachings with the latest insights in psychology, consciousness, business management and other fields.  It helps to provide a vibrant and comprehensive framework and toolset for 21st-century awakening.

Why Enlighten-Up!?

Dharma Talks for 21st Century Life

The word ‘Dharma’ has many meanings, one being the ultimate truths of reality, and the universal laws of awakening.  That’s lovely, but how do you bring these ancient perspectives into 21st century life?

These monthly(ish) classes are a way to bring kick-ass, applicable dharma into your life.  Tune in to higher truths, with real-life Dharma teachers from wherever you might be in the world.

The topic of the classes will change each month.  They will be thought provoking, inspiring and designed to ‘enlighten-up’ your world.  In a world that has a tendency to ‘dumb down’ the complexities of wisdom, we promise not to.

There will also be an opportunity to share in small groups and to ask questions at the end of the class.

Video recordings are available for those who cannot attend live.

These Enlighten-Up classes are open to all experience levels.

Qapel and Sensei teach in a light but profound way – taking us on a brilliant journey of understanding with guile and humour.
Male and female perspectives help balance with differing approaches. Explaining a complex but genius system that holds all life understanding from religion, science, psychotherapy and wisdom traditions is not easy. I think Ken Wilber would have enjoyed it.

Recently, I attended the Tarot/ Tree of Life weekend retreat presented by the teachers of Planet Dharma, Qapel Doug Duncan and Catherine Pawasarat Sensei who laid out the basics of the Tarot and Tree of Life, gave time to ponder the information in meditation and explained in simple terms that made an ancient tradition accessible and relevant to the twenty-first century. I highly recommend their courses for beginners as well as experienced students.

Retreating in person with Qapel and Sensei is like coming home. It’s like visiting the authentic High Priestess, Magician and Fool all rolled into two. Well its like visiting the whole major Arcana archetypes all rolled into two people. They are loving, generous, knowledgeable, wise and compassionate.

The Western Mysteries & Tarot with Doug and Catherine Sensei has been highly transformative and relevant to my personal and universal experience of being human. I am still discovering new and varied ways of showing up in my life; how to leverage talents, strengthen weak links and lighten up!
