In this episode Cyndi and Rona discuss the gateway that is required to make all the other tools work: Trust
When you tune in you will learn…
- Why it is so important to rest from your story and place your trust in infinite consciousness.
- How to notice judgment when it shows up in the mind and the power of just noticing (without believing) the thoughts that pass-through awareness.

An invitation to accept, to Trust, that Truth will correct all errors in the mind
Join Cyndi and Rona to learn how to activate Trust in your life.
In this edition of the Awareness podcast, Ann McIlraith describes her journey to the non-dual understanding through exploration of the body. She explains how T’ai Chi brings a feeling of openness and transparency of the body. The body can teach us so much, and T’ai Chi takes you beyond the body.
Jenny and Ann discuss how the practice of T’ai Chi relates to the investigation of the body that Francis Lucille teaches, and the discovery of our borderlessness through which the feeling of separation that resides in the body dissolves. Ann describes how in group work, the sense of being contained in a physical body disappears and you are experiencing the energy field in which all the physical bodies are moving. It’s a way of transcending the body while inhabiting it.
“When you’re feeling that your heart will burst with joy, when you’re feeling love, or beauty, when something touches you completely – that’s it. It’s simple.”
Join Bill and Bob Gottfried for a conversation about the bridge from personal psychology to collective spirituality. Drawing on the wisdom gleaned from a long career as a neurocognitive specialist and therapist, Bob shares how to naturally discover one's true self, and the ultimate shortcut to divine wisdom and deep inner peace.

- What The Pause is and why it is so powerful (hint – it is in The Pause where all is healed)
- How to implement this technique into your everyday life
- The transformative power of letting everything be as it is while letting any physical discomfort burn itself out.

Join Cyndi and Rona to discover your own ability to Pause
In this Living in Not-knowing podcast, Professor Donald Hoffman explains how science is now catching up with what many of the spiritual traditions have been saying for millennia - that there is only one consciousness, and that time and space are not fundamental.
Tune in to for answers tio these fascinating questions:
✓ What does science tell us about the nature of our human experience?
✓ Can we escape from the virtual reality headset that prevents us seeing things as they really are?
✓ Can Artificial Intelligence become conscious? What do we mean by 'understanding'?
Is there anything we can know for certain?
✓ How can science and spirituality work together to discover new insights into the nature of ourselves and the universe?
Professor Hoffman also talks about his practice of meditation, and describes the benefits it brings to his scientific work, to his everyday life, and to his understanding of his true nature.
In December 2022, Bill Free and Lisa Natoli spent 3 weeks in India. They traveled with a group hosted by Prachi Jain, director of the tour company Escape To…

In A Course in Miracles Honesty is defined as consistency. During this podcast Cyndi and Rona discuss what that means and how it can be used as a very effective Tool for Awakening.
In this episode, Francis describes what it means ‘to live in not-knowing’ and explains the distinction between non-duality and non-dualism. We discuss the different ways in which we can approach the hidden knowledge of awareness. After the first stage in which we discover the absolute reality of pure consciousness, Francis explains why it is essential to recognise that this one reality shines as this world. That’s the only way to be stable in this understanding. Otherwise, we feel nostalgia for the state of pure awareness, and then there is suffering.
We went on to discuss practice. Francis explained that after having a first glimpse of the truth, it’s a life-time assignment. The goal is happiness. Practice converges with life. You don’t stop the practice when you are enlightened. After enlightenment, you practice all the time. But it’s important to make sure your practice comes from love and enthusiasm. Otherwise you stay on the path of self-improvement for lifetime after lifetime. How could more effort, more suffering take you closer to the effortless path?

Lisa also discusses her upcoming series of live workshops, The Wholeness Experiment, which launches on January 9th 2023.

In this Living in Not-Knowing podcast, with Anne Hay, we trace her path from early glimpses of peace and freedom, through a range of spiritual disciplines, to reach the recognition that organized practice was not going to bring what she was looking for.
Several times she was brought face-to-face with death through an early traumatic experience, the death of her parents, cancer and other health issues. She describes how, as a result, the fear of death eventually melted away.
The freedom of not-knowing has been a recurring theme throughout Anne’s life, guiding her decisions and leading her inexorably towards that for which she truly longed.
It was eventually through Direct Path meditations that she found her way back home, to discover the peace and happiness which is our true nature. Life now is easy. Activities just come naturally from joy, rather than a sense of duty. Everything that arises is welcomed. There’s no sense of lack, or sense of impending doom. She knows and feels that all will be well.
Bill’s guest in this episode is singer/songwriter Neda Boin.

In this Living in Not-Knowing podcast, Lawrie Smith, talks about her spiritual journey and her life as a judge in Canada. Everyone loves truth, justice and fairness. These are inherent attributes of our true nature. We discuss the purpose of the legal system and the various ways in which the concept of ‘living in not-knowing’ is enshrined in the practice of law. Judges and jury members are required to listen to the facts from a position of complete openness. We discuss the concept of ‘no reasonable doubt’ versus absolute certainty. We can apply the same principles in our daily lives. We all have prejudices based on our conditioning, but mostly they are hidden. Serving on a jury or working as a judge can bring these to light. Lawrie goes on to describe how applying the concept of living in not-knowing in daily life brings freedom and happiness.
In this episode Bill interviews Spiritual Teacher and author Caverly Morgan and the focus will be her newest book The Heart of Who We Are, which is endorsed by many spiritual leaders including Rupert Spira.
“Transcendence and transformation. In The Heart of Who We Are, Caverly deftly holds two seemingly opposing truths—our shared being of oneness whose nature is peace, and our shared world of apparent separation and its suffering—and invites us to explore how our true nature might find its fullest expression in both ourselves and the collective. This beautiful and
courageous book not only provides a way for us to explore who we are and how we are in the world but stands as a shining example of what it means to do both.”
-Rupert Spira, teacher of nonduality, author of The Nature of Consciousness
and Being Aware of Being Aware
When Susan sat down to interview Tom Das for The Awareness Podcast, she did not expect something extraordinary to happen live on the show. As Tom is giving a 4 part live workshop in November, Susan wanted to find out more about him, how his spiritual journey has unfolded and how he became a spiritual teacher. However, when Susan asked this question,
“Let's imagine just for the sake of the next, 10 minutes or whatever that I have come to you and said, I've had a glimpse of my true nature. I know that I'm not just this, I've had some spiritual experiences, but I don't feel as if I'm in a state of total freedom because I'm still vacillating between feeling that I'm not this body, mind, personality and feeling very much contracted inside it and reacting to the things that are happening, help me to see.”
The podcast changed from an interview to a holy encounter that led Susan to taste her true nature in a deeper way than ever before, while at the same time realizing it was something she had always known.
When you tune into this conversation with Cyndi Krupp and Rev Yolanda you will be gifted with an experience of the Joy that comes from making the choice to live your most authentic self regardless of the story and life challenges. You will also have the opportunity to experience the spirit inspired music of Rev Yolanda as she sings the song that was written through her entitled simply, Home.
In this Living in Not-Knowing podcast, the sculptress Maureen Thienpont describes how a traumatic event in her life awakened and clarified her understanding that there is more to each of us than just a body-mind. She explains how the events of life itself have guided her towards an ever-deeper recognition of the unity of self with all that exists, and led her to her teacher, Francis Lucille. Her work as an artist producing sculptures from stone is underpinned by not-knowing. She is guided towards a stone, without knowing why. And when she starts to work with the stone she has no idea what form will emerge. We discuss the importance of approaching life without expectations and surrendering to what is. When intuition and connection are not flowing, she leaves the stone until the right moment arises, which may be as much as a year later. To do otherwise would be disrespectful. She gives examples of how she applies this same approach of openness, trust and intuition, to helping friends who are in difficulties.
Bill and Rupert discuss letting go of the tradition, the practice, the thing that brings you to understanding awakening and allowing what's next to take its place. Rupert speaks about how fundamentalism can keep you stuck in concepts and that you can't ignore what's happening or think it is all just illusion. You have to look to effectively resolve the attachment and then letting go of the shore just happens.
In this episode Susan and Stephan discuss the differences between the progressive and direct paths. Stephan brings a unique perspective on both approaches as he is a former Zen monk who later studied under Jean Klein and Adyashanti and is himself a teacher of non duality, as well as being a psychotherapist.
Susan and Stephan reflect on the differences between an intellectual understanding of the teachings and Self realization and what it is that wakes up.
Stephan gives a flavor of what he will be teaching in his live 4 part Workshop in October, Discover Your Natural State of Awakened Awareness
In this episode Cyndi and her guest Susan Telford talk about their experiences with living from a place of conscious awareness. Tune in to discover how a shift in perspective can bring more peace and joy into any situation.
In this edition of the Living in Not-Knowing podcast with Jenny Beal, Sam Visser discusses his spiritual journey which included time spent in an Osho commune, before coming into contact with non-duality and the Direct Path. He goes on to describe the approach he uses in his work as a psychotherapist, helping his clients to see for themselves that suffering never happens in the now. Situations don’t cause suffering, it's only our resistance to them that causes suffering.
When you can’t change the situation, just surrender. Surrender always points to the now. Life is uncertain, but embracing that uncertainty leads to freedom.
Sam goes on to explain how he came to lose all fear of death of the body. Life is a blessing.

In this Living in Not-Knowing podcast with Jenny Beal, Rachna Chowla describes her spiritual journey from a traditional Vedanta school, via the Buddhist tradition of the Dalai Lama and the poetry of Rumi, to arrive at the Direct Path teaching of Rupert Spira and Francis Lucille. It was through this teaching that she discovered how love and beauty can become an integral part of our spiritual life. She goes on to discuss how the non-dual understanding has influenced both her practical life as a doctor and her creative life as a poet, and the changes that have occurred in her approach to difficult circumstances. She describes the ever-growing joy and freedom of being open to all that arises. Finally, she reads one of her poems that depicts the way creativity manifests spontaneously and effortlessly when she rests in not-knowing.
