Guest, Tim Freke

Tim Freke is a polymath of spiritual traditions having written and practiced the gamut of available approaches, both ancient and modern. He is a best-selling author, retreat leader, 'stand-up philosopher', and a 'friend, not guru' of fellow travellers on a path of endless evolution. Among the dozens of books he has written, a few titles give his range: Jesus and the Lost Goddess: The Secret Teachings of the Original Christians; Zen Wisdom: Daily Teachings from the Zen Masters; In the Light of Death; Spiritual Insight to Help You Live with Death and Bereavement; The Heart of Islam; The Jesus Mysteries: Was the "Original Jesus" a Pagan God?

Two recent books, How Long is Now: How to be Spiritually Awake in the Real World and his latest, Deep Awake: Wake Up to Oneness and Celebrate Your Individuality, point to his most inventive and powerful idea, the Zen-like paradoxical notion of the 'paralogical': a 'both-and' rather than 'either-or' approach to truth. This interview, like Deep Awake, concentrates on simultaneous truths from different views: we are embedded in Oneness, and at the same time, we are individuals; we are separate, and then again, we are not. Rather than denigrate or ignore the one or the other perspective, Tim Freke encourages us to embrace both. The whole of our multi-dimensional being is essential to our human experience. In this scintillating, exuberant interview, Tim explains how both perspectives carry truths as to why we are here and what we most truly are.

Alexandra and Tim have a fascinating discussion on all manner of subject, but it often comes back to the need for a paralogical approach to ascertain effective, experiential truth. Both intuition and reason are necessary tools in our quests for genuine spiritual evolution - tools that are meant to work together, not apart. The ego, much derided in some traditions, must be strong in its separateness to handle powerful spiritual and higher-state experiences, such as the "mountaineering" exertions of ayahuasca, or, for that matter, the depredations of contemporary society.

Tim has travelled nearly every spiritual path known, and has written about many of them. He shares intriguing remarks with Alexandra about the comparative effects of drugs and meditation, music and family life, attachment and detachment. He also shares his understanding, constantly in evolution, about God. In this interview and in his newest book, Soul Story: Evolution and the Purpose of Life, due out April 18, Tim expands upon the notion that God is the Oneness from which everything arises, and to which all is tending. Manifesting in time, God reaches from unconscious Oneness to Conscious Oneness, which is Love.

Tim's erudition is extraordinary, but this interview is bursting with the spontaneous ebullient joy of lived wisdom shared in conversation. As Tim says, age and experience brings simplicity, and his concisely formulated condensations are unforgettable nuggets of pure gold you will carry away with you as treasured insights.

Author, Gnostic Scholar, Philosopher
Guest Biography: 

Tim is the standup philosopher – a concept he developed from the ancient idea of a philosopher as a travelling ‘spiritual entertainer’ who transformed people’s consciousness. He is pioneering an accessible new way to experience a profound spiritual awakening, which fully embraces our tender, vulnerable, flawed humanity. He has spent his life exploring the awakened state he often simply calls the ‘mystery experience’ and is able to guide others directly to it.

In his latest book, The Mystery Experience, Tim presents a revolutionary approach to spirituality. He creates a new language of awakening, which makes profound ideas simpler to understand, so it’s easier to experience a real transformation of consciousness. During his Mystery Experience Retreats he personally guides participants directly to the deep awake state.

Tim is a passionate and playful communicator, whose enthusiasm for life is contagious. He is often featured in documentaries and chat shows broadcast by the global media, such as the BBC and the History Channel. Tim blogs for The Huffington Post and care2.com amongst others. He is the founder of The Alliance for Lucid Living, (The ALL), an organization dedicated to our collective awakening. He lives with his wife Debbie and their two children in Glastonbury, England.

I experienced the deep awake state for the first time when I was 12 years old and it was WOW! I was sitting on a hill overlooking my small hometown in the southwest of England contemplating how strange and mysterious life is … when it just happened.

I can vividly recall the feeling of being immersed in overwhelming, exquisite, ecstatic love; as if the whole universe was pulsating with love. I felt I’d been given the most amazing surprise … and yet also as if I’d remembered something I’d always secretly known.  

Ever since, I've been exploring how to transform my state of consciousness. I’ve also felt passionate about sharing the WOW of awakening with others, because I soon discovered that when I am deep awake others start waking up around me.

I'm now in my 50s and over the years I've had the privilege of touching the lives of hundreds of thousands of people through my books, broadcasts and events. I feel extremely grateful to have the opportunity to explore the deep awake life with others. Awakening is above all an experience of love and love gets bigger when shared.
