Note from Alan: I
have removed links to my earlier essays, audio archives and videos from
this website. Over the last 12 years my experience of "awakening" has
deepened and, although I would say my previous offerings still have
value, they do not represent where I am at now. I prefer at this point
to speak to people directly and in the present moment rather than
through any form of media.
