Beingfulness: why you will love the 10 Beings

This is a course that can change the way you experience life.

It won't change the content of your life but might radically change the way you experience that content.

Beingfulness is a simple step-by-step form of daily meditation practice that brings some clarity and enjoyment into your day-to-day experience. It's free from Buddhist jargon. Requires no previous experience. And is profoundly enjoyable.

From the comfort of your own home, you can join me, Alistair Appleton, in my home, and we'll explore the 10 Beings that make up the course. Take a look at the video to find out more.

Enjoying our Being. Fully.

There's something amazing and wondrous about human Being. The fact that there is something rather than nothing. The light of awareness clicks on when we wake and snaps off when we sleep. The feeling of being "you" with all its up and downs. The whole kaleidoscope of physical feelings, emotions, thoughts, memories and the flux of sense perceptions.

It's intense and magical. If we let it sink in. But often our thinking minds (and our meditating minds!) want to control that magic. There's a part that longs for it. But there's another that is afraid.

Beingfulness brings back the magic. Brings back sacred awareness into our lives which are often pummelled by worries, financial concerns and emotional entanglements.

Beingfulness starts simple, stays simple, ends simple. But weirdly, in the simplicity, we get to appreciate and savour the incredible complexity of our lives from a simplified space.

Nothing in our life has to be changed except the way we experience it!

I love the simplicity of these Beingfulness practices. I find them easy to access and remember. I also love that nothing has to change, that it's all about observation and acceptance....and stuff does change. I always feel brighter and yet grounded by the practices.

We want the course to be accessible for everyone.

  • My login doesn't work anymore. Can you help?
    This new site needs a one-time signup. If you have a email/password combo from the Mindsprings School (Beingfulness, Anxiety courses etc.) then I suggest using the same one. But you will need to sign up one time only to access the site (use those same details if you like) and then you'll be able to access everything with that login the next time you visit!
  • Where have my online courses gone?
    All the online self-study courses are still on the Mindsprings School. You can access this under Courses > Self Study on the navigation bar. I'm trying to find a way to synchronise the school with the new site - but everything is safe and sound there for your perusal.
  • When are the live online classes starting again?
    I'm starting to teach online three times a week from the 20th October 2022. You can find out more and book your classes here.
