Jeff Foster is the author of five books, including An Extraordinary Absence. He is the youngest teacher listed in Watkins Review’s 2011 list of the world’s 100 Most Spiritually Influential Living People.
Foster studied astrophysics at Cambridge University. In his mid-twenties, after a long period of depression and illness, he embarked on an intensive spiritual quest for the ultimate truth of existence. But, he admits, his spiritual search came crashing down “with the clear recognition of the nondual nature of everything, and the discovery of the extraordinary in the ordinary,” he says.
An emerging popular teacher in the nonduality movement, Foster belongs to no tradition or lineage, and makes his teaching accessible to all. He leads retreats and private sessions around the world, gently but directly pointing people back to the deep acceptance inherent in the present moment. He helps people discover who they really are, beyond all thoughts and judgments about themselves, even in the midst of the stress and struggle of daily life and intimate relationships.
“Sometimes people talk about a recognition that can happen when you read or listen to words that emanate from Clarity,” Foster writes in his book, An Extraordinary Absence. “This resonance is completely beyond the thinking mind, beyond the intellect, beyond our understanding…In that resonance there is always the possibility of something else shining through.”
Jeff Foster is also the author of The Wonder of Being, Life Without a Centre, Beyond Awakening, and The Revelation of Oneness.
