In this talk I explore The Observing Self. I often say to my students, stand as Awareness, and be kind to self and others. Joko Beck said “That which observes cannot be found and cannot be described. If we look for it there is nothing there. Since there is nothing we can know about it, we can almost say it is another dimension” 1989: 123. In the end, we are all a mystery to ourselves. At the core of our being lies a mystery – what Joko Beck, following Arthur Deikman (1982) called the Observing Self. In this talk we explore the far-out realm of the Observing Self, the Open Door. I would like to invite you to come on this journey with me - You might be surprised as to what you might find!
