The Art of Being Human is to live life in all its aspects, yet with awareness.
About The Drunken Monk
What is the Drunken Monk? The title comes from an ancient martial arts style called “The Drunken Monkey” where movements of the practitioner are very relaxed and appear humorous, as if he was drunk. At the same time he is perfectly aware of each movement and rooted in the Present Moment.
The Drunken Monk is about being spiritual, self aware and grounded yet with laughter, authenticity and an acceptance of our human nature in all its aspects.
The aim of this project is to provide a supportive environment with practical tools accompanying you on your journey to explore your natural essence. It is about the synthesis of consciousness and spirituality into the routine of daily life.
Much like the fertile soil nurturing a flower growing from a seed. In attentively cultivated earth a flower grows and blossoms according to its own nature.
During the day, taking a few minutes to sit and meditate can bring you into the moment where you may find clarity, energy and a relaxation that is both empowering and expansive. The Drunken Monk invites you to listen the guided meditation recordings or to join his meditation sessions.
“Who am I? What is my true nature?” are fundamental questions of most human beings. Enlightenment Intensive is an effective and powerful process to produce a state of Being, completely present and free from the relentless stream of thoughts.
Surrounded by majestic mountains, overlooking a crystal clean lake, the recording studio of The Drunken Monk is situated. Mirroring the beauty of the nature, the authors’ Celtic roots and devotion to music, the songs are intended to become a warm companion on your side.
