SKILLFUL MEANS: An Awakening Series, was held over the last three Saturdays in June, 2020. The first week was a 2-hour Awakening Session. The next two Saturdays offered two 2-hour group Clarity Sessions. And it was totally amazing! We’ve put the series recordings up on Vimeo, and they are spiritual dynamite!
I can’t recall any event that I’ve ever presented that went as perfectly as this series did. Wonderful, passionate students, no technical glitches, and lots of awakenings! Throughout the first session, you can see people popping into Recognition of True Nature over and over again. With my Zoom set on Gallery View, it looked to me like chicks breaking out of their shells!
The cost to attend this session live was $250—which is less than a third of the $895 cost of doing this series one-on-one with me. These recordings are priced at $100, which is a bit over one third of the live event. It’s a HUGE bargain!
A lot of people came to Realization—it was thrilling! No one was unmoved and the energy was fantastic! One of my favorites, Brian, woke up in the very last session. Something came out of Fredness and it popped that bubble like a dagger.
I have Brian’s unsolicited testimonial below along with a couple of others from Rob and Angelica. Each one of them is a testament to this amazing series. Fredness doesn’t “do” those sessions, so I can be completely in awe of something that the unit-character can’t take the first bit of credit for. It all just happened!
This new course is the recorded video of all three sessions—more than six hours. Short of one-on-one sessions with me, if you want to wake up, if you want to clear up, I know of nothing clearer, easier, or more powerful than this series. Everyone who attended was offered a golden invitation to awaken, and you will be too! Here’s what some of them had to say about it.
I just wanted to express my gratitude one more time for the truly life-changing Skillful Means series, and the two Satsangs. And what a lovely group your Satsang members are!
When I look back on how blessed the “Brian” life has been in terms of exposure to many of the top spiritual teachers on the planet over the past 30 years, I can say with confidence, and without hesitation, that none of them holds a candle to you and your Living Method – which is the truest Direct Path that I have encountered in all my years on the non-Path. And I have been with many teachers, monks, swamis, and gurus.
I have been fortunate enough to spend time in retreat, and one on one time, with several of them. While in India, I spent several weeks (overall) with Ramesh Balsekar attending his daily Satsang in his condo in Mumbai (one of Nisargadatta’s translators).
As influential as all of them have been – and I am grateful for all of them and their teachings – it always felt like something was missing….. like something was being held back (not on purpose necessarily, but still in reserve).
Perhaps all of that only points to the adage, “when the student is ready, the teacher will appear.” As it turns out, the teacher has shown up in the guise of a “Fred Davis.” :o)
Your method paints the seeker into a corner where there is nowhere to go except to see the Truth of what we are. So simple. So direct. So powerful. And so transforming and life-changing.
Love, gratitude, and deep respect to you and Betsy for all you do.
Hi Fred and Betsy,
Thank you very much for facilitating the Skillful Means course, and for the subsequent satsangs. The experience was invaluable, and as expressed during the most recent satasang, I am currently experiencing a flatlining due to the ‘seeking’ desire coming to an end. There is still some seeking energy attached to the ‘Rob’ character, who doesn’t want to accept that this is all there is, but the foot has been removed from the accelerator and the seeking vehicle is now running on its own slowing impetus. There is a void now that bothers the Rob character, who desperately wants to know ‘what now?’, and panic due to the realisation that there is no doer, only doing, and that doing simply occurs. It’s that loss of ‘assumed’ control that scares Rob the most. Rob thought he was driving the vehicle, and is now relegated to the back seat with a toy steering wheel, desperately turning it in an attempt to convince itself that it is still in control, despite knowing that not only is it not in the driving seat, there is ‘nobody’ driving the vehicle lol.
With the recent lockdowns and the current world situation, continuing with the satasangs is not financially viable at the moment, but once situations have improved I will be back.
Again, thank you both very much.
Trusting that you and Betsy are doing well.
Just want to say Thank You for offering the Skillful Awakening Series. The series absolutely lived up to its title.
I’m not much for words especially after my Awakening in 2008. Thank You for sharing your gift.
