“Jeff’s teachings give me the courage to face and meet that which seemed ‘unbearable’. A doorway that had been forgotten…” / “Jeff’s words help me to not spiritually bypass my humanity… they put me right there in the middle of everything that Life is.”
 

The Alchemy of Surrender

Embracing Struggle as a Portal to Healing

A Supportive 6-Week Online Course with Jeff Foster

“The alchemists know that in the very darkness of nature
a light is hidden,
a little spark
without which the darkness could not exist…”

– C.G. Jung 

SIX WEEKS OF SOOTHING LIVE SESSIONS WITH JEFF FOSTER
With powerful guided meditations, talks, poetry and Q&A
April 17th – May 22nd 

REGISTRATION OPEN FOR A LIMITED TIME

An invitation to a six-week journey of surrender….

Dear Friend,

It is with great excitement and a grateful heart that I introduce to you my new six-week online course THE ALCHEMY OF SURRENDER, designed to guide you into the alchemical magic of meditation and the transformative power of surrendering to the ‘mess of the moment’. We’ll take the “worthless” base metals of our wounding and trauma – our pain, our fear, our doubts, our shameful parts – and, through love, through mindfulness, through deep compassion, “alchemise” them into the “gold” of awakened self-love.

A COURSE THAT EMERGED FROM MY OWN JOURNEY OF SURRENDER…

This is my first 6-week course in four years. So much LIFE has happened to me in those four years… I turned 40. I nearly died of neurological Lyme disease. I recovered. I got married… and last year, I became a father for the first time. So many new insights and reflections have been brewing within me over this time, and I can’t wait to share them with you all. 

The title “The Alchemy of Surrender” was inspired by my own life experiences but also by a recent conversation with a friend, and I’m sure many of you will be able to relate to her struggle: She had spent years doing everything she could to try and ‘fix’ herself. She’d read endless spiritual and self-help books, watched countless YouTube videos, attended wellness retreats, therapy sessions, done all kinds of spiritual practices, breathing techniques, yoga sessions, energy healings, tried positive thinking. She was exhausted – from the seeking, the endless “working on herself”.

When would the struggle bear fruit? When would her pain go away? How much more “self-improvement” did she need to do? Where was this elusive thing called… “inner peace”? 

Exhausted, hitting rock bottom, on the verge of giving up completely, she suddenly found herself letting go, and remembering an ancient teaching of deep trust, self-acceptance and surrender:

“This grief and ache I’m feeling is not actually a block to freedom. It’s a portal, a doorway…. so I need to TRUST IT COMPLETELY…”

She finally allowed herself to fully experience and trust her anxiety, her restlessness, the tension in her body, instead of running away from it or trying to numb it away through her usual addictions, distractions and general busyness. She began to work with it, and started to treat it as intelligent, a dear friend, an ally on the path trying to help her change her life, rather than something working against her, or something that she had to “get rid of”. Drenched in love and understanding, held in kindly Awareness, seen as a friend rather than an enemy, her pain transformed, “alchemically”…. 

“I am okay, exactly as I am, in this present moment…”

She wept with relief as she remembered a deep sense of okayness and Oneness, right where she was sitting. She remembered to breathe, feel her feet on the ground, come out of her head, take one moment at a time. She felt at home in the Now again. Her struggle had been her portal…  

YOUR BLOCKS MAY BE YOUR PATH!

The “holy grail” of awakening may be hidden in the “mud” of your present experience! Over 6 weeks of compassion- and humour-filled live sessions together, I want to explore all this with you, this teaching that saved my life, and share with you distilled insights from my working with thousands of people in retreats and private sessions for 15+ years, helping them discover deeper levels of trust, healing and self-acceptance, and awakening to their true nature.

Through simple guided meditations that cut to the root of our struggle with life, honest talks, personal stories of my own journey of healing from chronic shame and depression, original heartfelt prose and poetry, and answering your deepest questions, I want to guide you into a place of deep inner rest, silence and peace … and explode some outdated myths about healing and spiritual awakening along the way. 😉 

Join me online, from the comfort of your own home, and let’s rest together, and breathe together, and surrender to our place of true healing – the present moment.  

I will begin this journey soon, LIVE! I hope you can join me online. 

With love and anticipation,

Jeff Foster

“Perhaps your pain has a secret job to do.
Perhaps your grief is what healing actually feels like today.
Perhaps your sorrow is not supposed to have “disappeared” yet.

Perhaps your pain can be trusted today, even if you wish it were gone.
Perhaps your struggle is a portal.

Perhaps this is a perfect meditation:
Total surrender to this One precious, imperfect moment.”

– Jeff Foster

Six Unexpected Portals to Surrender

“It is so rare to create such connection in this cyber-universe…”

“I’ve been practising Presence and listening to Eckhart Tolle for years but your course has given me so much, no words can say. So many life-changing insights!”

“I’ve had a sense over these weeks… of a voice saying “Finally!” deep in my being…”

“This course definitely has changed my life…”

“A 2 hour talk with you was of more benefit to me than 2 years of therapy!”


After receiving amazing feedback on his first two online classes Ending The Inner War and The Deep Rest Course,
Jeff Foster wants to lead you now through a deep dive into six aspects of surrender…

  • Surrendering to Each Moment – Discover the freedom in embracing life as it unfolds, finding peace in the here and now.
  • Surrendering to Our Deepest Pain & Disappointment – Learn to navigate the waters of our deepest hurts, finding healing and wisdom in our wounds.
  • Surrendering to Our Exhausted Bodies and Busy Minds – Offer gentleness to our physical and mental beings, finding rest in the midst of chaos.
  • Surrendering to Impermanence, Loss & Death – Embrace the natural cycles of life and death, finding strength in vulnerability and change.
  • Surrendering to Your Authentic Path – Honor your unique journey, embracing your individual truth and direction.
  • Surrendering to Your Non-Dual Nature – Discover the unity of all existence, transcending the illusion of separation.

Jeff is a survivor of chronic illness and suicidal depression, so he really does understand what it’s like to suffer. In his mid-twenties, in the midst of his deepest suicidal despair and emotional pain and darkness, an awakening experience changed the course of his life and showed him his true non-dual nature. He discovered that in the midst of our darkness, there is always an inextinguishable Light, an unbreakable Presence that says YES to us, exactly as we are, including all of our imperfections and perceived flaws and doubts.

Jeff makes meditation, and spirituality itself, simple, joyful, human – and humorous! – again. His meditations and teachings are suitable for beginners, and for every age and ability and background. Whether you are new to meditation, or you’ve been meditating for decades and feel stuck – or even bored – in your practice, Jeff will give you a fresh contemporary perspective.

About Jeff Foster

Jeff Foster studied Astrophysics at Cambridge University. In his mid-twenties, after a long period of depression and illness, he became addicted to the idea of ‘spiritual enlightenment’ and embarked on an intensive spiritual quest for the ultimate truth of existence. The spiritual search came crashing down with the clear recognition of the non-dual nature of everything, and the discovery of the extraordinary in the ordinary. In the clarity of this seeing, life became what it always was: intimate, open, loving and spontaneous, and Jeff was left with a deep understanding of the root illusion behind all human suffering, and a love of the present moment.

Jeff was voted #59 on Watkins Review’s list of the world’s 100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People. Jeff has published several books in over a dozen languages. His latest book “You Were Never Broken” was published in July 2020 by Sounds True.

Jeff’s simple, compassionate teachings on self-acceptance
have touched thousands all over the world…

“Jeff’s words melt my heart and create an Oasis where I can rest and be myself.” – SY

“Jeff’s expression in this world gives me the permission to be wonderfully messily and chaotically human. Something I never gave myself. His expression literally saved me at some point.” – RC

“I’ve ‘known’ all this stuff for years but you moved it all from my head to my heart….The nuts and bolts of being here now….Falling into the arms of life. In the last call, during the opening meditation, I felt the universe inside me and was beautifully lost in it. Truly life changing, Jeff, and I thank you. 70 years of wandering in the desert and you have guided me home.” – JS

“His words are filled with beautiful inspiration and understanding, and so many times have just touched my soul when I have most needed it.” – JB

“For me Jeff is the voice of the wild soul that truly enters all essence of being and embraces every aspect of it.” – IV

“His words help me to not spiritually bypass my humanity. Put me right there in the middle of everything that Life is.” – VH

“His words, his meditations help me to find rest in me as I am right now, to find peace on my way, to see my fear as a little child looking for my attention and my Love.” – ME

“His words stabilize, normalize, embrace and pacify those of us who feel emotion deeply and haven’t been able to understand that we are beautiful because of them.” – LS

“A conscious voice able to illuminate not only the underlying mystery of it all, but also the deep seated traumas in the human psyche. A rare light that penetrates to the darkest forgotten places at the roots of violence.”– JS

“He helps me to step out of the stories of my mind. He shows me the joy of the open heart.” – JM

“His teachings have touched the deepest place inside and the felt resonance is just so reaffirming that it is all just passing in front of a never changing presence.” – TA

“I thought I was the one that had to carry life! I didn’t trust life at all, not for one minute. I felt like it was trying to take everything from me, even to kill me. I thought I had to learn more, work harder, try harder, work faster, work longer, do more, stay one step ahead … well, you get the idea. Until I couldn’t take it anymore. Then, during meditation, you suggested the unthinkable. To just fall into the arms of life. Life, that dangerous thing I’ve been protecting myself from for decades!! Prepared to die in an instant, I just made that swan dive into the dark abyss with nothing more than the wings of a prayer, and lo and behold I was held! I am held still!” – LH

“Jeff’s teaching gave me courage to face and meet that what seems unbearable. A doorway that was forgotten, overlooked, fled from.” – DW

“Jeff puts into words what I couldn’t express and it moved me to tears. He taught me that it’s ok to be a divine mess, awkward and scared, completely vulnerable and authentic. Learning to leave the mask off and embracing beautiful, f****d-up me.” – AS

“His teachings diminish my fear and allow my own wisdom to flourish.”– MH

“Jeff was the first person to allow me accept what I couldn’t accept – that began my healing process and I will be forever grateful.” – EH

“Jeff’s words have changed my life in that I have come to understand that all of me is worthy of love” – SP

“Jeff has taught me to accept my unlovable parts and start loving the whole of me” – TN

“His teachings have helped me to become best friends with myself resulting in trust, compassion, and grace.” – DC

“Strictly speaking, you do not heal ‘from’ trauma. You simply reconnect with that secret place inside that was never traumatised, never damaged, never unsafe and never unhealed in the first place. Healing involves remembering this inner Sanctuary, reconnecting with the wholeness, love, beauty and true Safety that you are in your essence.

You are not broken, friend. You are Unbreakable.”
