“Forget serious teachers and even crazy wisdom teachers!
Fred Davis is enlightenment’s court jester, reformed rake, televangelist,
and grits-talking magus all in one. He’s the real deal–and I should know,
after a career researching consciousness, seeking,
and having my own satori and nondual experiences.
After years of headbanging to recapture the awakening I’d lost through
a severe drug reaction, I stumbled across him–and I awakened.
Fred Davis is steeped in the knowledge of nonduality.
~James Braha, author of
My Extraordinary Summer With “Sailor” Bob Adamson
[To Rick Archer, Host and Founder of Buddha at the Gas Pump]
“I hear from Fred Davis that you are soon to be doing an interview with him, so I just wanted to let you know, (and I am happy for you to mention this is your interview) that yesterday I had a two hour Skype session with him where he put me through his unique ‘Living Method’ of enquiry. And I just wanted to tell you, Rick, that it was absolutely fantastic. It was the clearest way of directly pointing to the I AM of my Source that I have ever experienced. I think he is an amazing Teacher. I already felt that I was pretty well awakened and clear about who I AM NOT and somewhat clear about who I AM, but since his session I have huge clarity about who I AM.”
~Mandi Solk, Nondual Teacher & Author of
The Joy of No Self
“[Sages at this level of awakening] excel at one-to-one coaching.
Fred Davis, for example, is a master at it.
He is exceptionally skilled at initiating people into non-duality.
That is his specialty.”
~Ramaji, Nondual teacher and author of
1000: The Levels of Consciousness
and a Map of the Stages of Awakening for Spiritual Seekers and Teachers
“Your teaching on awakening fully accords with the teachings of Zen.
You follow the ancient Zen method of direct pointing to mind which results in
the authentic experience of kensho, initial awakening.
You are a true Zen teacher!”
Zen initiate and long-term Living Method student, Iowa City, Iowa
“Statistically, the rate you have been instrumental in
helping others to awaken is almost unparalleled in history.”
20+ year meditation teacher, Singapore
Fred Davis is a sage, not a saint.
If you’re looking for a saint, keep on looking.
If you’re looking for freedom, you’re in the right place.
There is no object for veneration here, only a communications tool.
The messenger here is human, and therefore deeply flawed.
This Liberation message flows through him anyway.
And that pointer right there is actually part of this teaching.
FRED DAVIS is a spiritual unteacher. He studied and practiced Eastern wisdom for twenty-five years prior to 2006, when seeking ended, and his true awakening commenced. He is the creator and editor of Awakening Clarity Now.com, and the founder of The Living Method of Spiritual Awakening. He has Nothing to offer you, which turns out to be a pretty big deal.
Fred is also the author of five books, including the nondual bestsellers Awaken Now: The Living Method of Spiritual Awakening, The Book of Undoing: Direct Pointing to Nondual Awareness, and Beyond Recovery: Nonduality and the Twelve Steps.
Fred’s The Living Method of Spiritual Awakening is a very successful process of nondual inquiry, investigation, and direct pointing that encourages immediate recognition and acceptance of our shared true nature, Oneness. Following recognition, The Living Method then helps to orient and clear the seeker-become-finder.Fred has worked with people from all the major traditions: Buddhists, Christians, Hindus, Jews, Muslims, Transcendental Meditators and Zen practitioners, as well as people with no allegiance to any religion or sect at all. More than a thousand people on six continents have found the door to freedom using The Living Method, which has roots in both Eastern spirituality and Western philosophy.
Fred is very happily married, is deeply devoted to this teaching, his beautiful wife, and his extraordinary animal companions. He lives quietly as a chiefly ignored, urban hermit in what he calls “The Heart of Progressive America”, which as everyone knows is Columbia, South Carolina.
