Skillful Means Series

Fred During a Skillful Means Series Session

The Skillful Means Series includes one two-hour group Awakening Session and two subsequent two-hour group Clarity Sessions. The meetings are held via Zoom on three consecutive Saturday afternoons at 2:00 pm Eastern (New York time). Apparent magic happens. 
This series is not to “prepare” you for awakening; it is to wake you up there and then. Most do. 
Of those who don’t “get it” in the first session, the majority will recognize True Nature before the end of the course. There is no “guarantee” that you’ll awaken; however, a great many of our regularly participating students started with Skillful Means. 

More Detail

“Wisdom that is not integrated with skillful means is bondage; but wisdom that is integrated with skillful means is liberation. Skillful means that is not integrated with wisdom is bondage, but skillful means that is integrated with wisdom is liberation.” 
Tulku Thondup, The Heart of Unconditional Love

Most of you have been following this teaching either closely or casually long enough to know, or at least know of its effectiveness. If you’re someone who has not yet awakened or who has had a “temporary awakening experience,” please come and join us. This may very well be the best chance you ever have of a non-dual awakening.

This Teaching delivers, day after day, year after year since it went online in 2011. I can’t guarantee you will wake up because awakening simply doesn’t work like that. What I can tell you is that The Living Method has already worked for many hundreds of people and that, at the very least, you’ll have a marvelous opportunity to awaken. I will do my absolute best, and most or all will find freedom.

All SMS participants will receive three complimentary Satsangs on the Sundays after each Saturday session, as well as lifetime access to the recordings. 


“Hey Fred, 

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.”

Brian, Skillful Means Series participant
