the source and ground of all our
the basis of our learning and knowing,
the key to accomplishment
our true nature, the Self itself, reflector of
all that is.
At Nirarta, we treat Self-knowledge, not as some distant and
ever receding goal, but our immediate birthright, here and now.
Together, we explore ways of coming home directly to this creative
source, so that we can enjoy peace and freedom within, while acting with
clarity, delight, and dynamism. This is Living Awareness – Awareness
that is both alive and lived, here and now.
Way of Unfolding
Things become what they are through the natural evolutionary
process we term 'Unfolding'
Sensitivity to pattern and growing alignment with
the deeper pattern of our lives help our personal unfolding to resonate with
the process or 'Way of Unfolding' in life as a whole.
When this happens, we enjoy and support fullness in life, both
in ourselves and in others. We flow with the stream of life, and are able
to accomplish much with minimum striving. Life supports us as we support
Transformational Coaching helps strengthen the key relationship
Performance – what we are accomplishing,
Alignment – how we are approaching
The Transformational Coach proceeds with a lot of sensitivity to the unfolding pattern of the client's life, helping him or her
identify and make simple internal changes,
deepen learning and understanding,
grow and develop as a whole person.
Awareness is the source and ground of all our
thinking, feeling, and perceiving. It is the basis of our learning and knowing,
and hence the key to effectiveness in action.
The purpose of meditation is to allow mental activity to settle
into that simple and subtle Awareness which reflects all our experience.
At first this Awareness is glimpsed fleetingly, revealing itself eventually
as our true nature and Source of all that is.
Awareness Meditation involves gentle, innocent
settling into our own being, without effort or attempts to stop thinking

practising and teaching meditation.
In Re•Patterning we explore the patterns
of thought, feeling, and behaviour recurring in our lives, until core patterns
and assumptions about ourselves or our world emerge.
This process helps identify where our deep beliefs about self
and world are interfering with our general well-being and ability to function
harmoniously and successfully in daily life.
Through Re•Patterning, we can revise these unhelpful patterns
and assumptions, so as to bring them into harmony with our inner being. This
supports the natural process of unfolding in our lives.
In Seminars at Nirarta, small groups come together to support change, learning, and growth, in themselves and each other.
Generally, a short presentation by the facilitator is followed by an activity for pairs, trios, or the individual to seed experience.
Shared reflection in pairs, trios, and in the group as a whole helps deepen and integrate the change, learning, and growth that emerges.
While there is a conceptual component to our seminars, the emphasis is primarily on lived and shared experience, so that learning is embodied in the person as a whole.
Since earliest times, people have taken time alone in silent vigils and
retreats to places of power, beauty, and silence, often in remote caves,
shrines, and hermitages in mountain, forest, and desert.
Retreats have helped them – and can help you, too – to:
• Resolve dilemmas
• Clarify purpose
• Attain a new vision
• Gain fresh energy, courage,
• Align heart, mind, spirit, and passion
• Connect with the Divine Other
• Listen to your small, still voice
• Know the true Self
Retreats, in short, are an ideal way to unleash the power of deep transformation,
accelerate inner awakening, and ease our path of unfolding.
Nirartais named after Danghyang
Nirarta, a great 16th century sage, who did much to shape Balinese Hinduism.
Teaching and founding temples on his many wanderings, he blended Shaivist
tradition with the Buddhist heritage received from his father, earning the
title of ‘Dwijendra’ or ‘Two
His name ‘Nirarta’ means literally ‘Wealth in that which
is not’. His name points to the knowledge that springs from the simplicity
of Unknowing, the abundance abiding in the silent source life itself.
The Nirarta Centre, too, brings two paths together. It aims to provide a bridge
between the knowledge and insights of the West and the deep wisdom woven into
the colourful fabric of Bali.
