Letter from the Field: What’s Next?

Dear Fred and Betsy, What a lovely trip you two offer people.  I sure enjoyed mine, and I feel the ‘space behind myself’ more easily accessible than ever.   I trust you will continue to grow inward and rejoice in our presence.  And to have fun, as you seem to be doing! With this recognition, over and over and over again, …

HURRICANE UPDATE SUNDAY MORNING, 9.16.18: ALL IS WELL AT CLARITY HOUSE

Hello, everybody! Betsy and I want to thank all of you for your emails of concern and well wishes. We are deeply touched by the outpouring of love. It’s absolutely amazing: we’ve gotten a bit of rain, and it’s still raining softly, but the storm essentially passed us by. Everything north and east of Columbia got clobbered in varying degrees. …

Ruling over Time by Kathleen Sutherland

Living in the now, there is no need for patience. Now is like a bridge over the river of events. We stand on the bridge and watch the events flow by. We see future events coming, the past events behind us. Mesmerized by their flow, we think that we are moving, that time is moving, that we are moving through …

Note from the Field: Who Is the Seer?

A student sent me an email this morning that read: Hey Fred, Looking forward to seeing you tomorrow and I have been in inquiry about what you have said about conviction. It seems like when I’m awake or awakish there is right view or a knowing the truth…really that does not quiet describe it…it just is…but then there is also …

Why Bother to Get a Teacher?

  I wrote this article years ago, but I find it as relevant today as it was then, so I’m bringing it down from the attic and airing it a second time. It can also be found in its permanent home down near the bottom of the Meetings page. Most of you will find that it’s well worth your time …

It Was Twenty Years Ago Today

What It Was Like Labor Day, 1998 Portland, Oregon Twenty years ago today was the worst day of the Fred unit’s life. It was Labor Day Monday, 1998. Fall was in the air, the nights were getting chilly, and I was living in the bushes at the bottom of a hill in Mt. Tabor City Park in Portland, Oregon. Wait, …

Do Awakening Sessions REALLY WORK? The Proof Is in the Pudding.

  Six years ago, when I first began to introduce Awakening Sessions to the world, I caught a great deal of flack, even from people I knew and admired. I confess, I was shocked. I was quite naive, and got my still-egoic little feelings hurt. But Ralph Waldo Emerson set me free. He said my job was to blow on …

Letter from the Field: Liberation in Brazil

Dear Fred and Betsy, What a lovely trip you two offer people.  I sure enjoyed mine, and I feel the ‘space behind myself’ more easily accessible than ever.   I trust you will continue to grow inward and rejoice in our presence.  And to have fun, as you seem to be doing! With this recognition, over and over and over again, …

Letter from the Field: Peace at Last

Hello Sir Fredness, Just a quick report to say how privileged I feel to be your student.  Every time I watch the recordings of our sessions I get another layer of the depth and a hit of the simple magnificence of this teaching. I don’t know if you ever saw the BBC series “Connections” many years ago, but James Burke …

The Seer and the Seen by Kathleen Sutherland

For our practice for August, Joyce and I took on a simple suggestion of Fred’s: Observe the character; be the witness. I am the Seer, Kathleen is the seen. I began thinking of myself in the third person: Now she’s in the grocery store, now paying, now driving home. Now taking a walk. Now she’s worrying. Worry – that was …
