Authentic Living

Discover Who You Really Really Are, and Open to the Fullness of Life.

22 – 23 January 2022, Kings Langley

Is this weekend for me?

With all the current uncertainty around politics, economics, climate change, artificial intelligence, and now the global pandemic, maybe you’ve notice a deep longing for real safety and security?

Perhaps you’ve been trying to satisfy this longing, to fix the ‘problem’, but whatever you acquire or achieve, the satisfaction is only ever temporary before you find yourself longing again?

Or maybe you’ve already had some recognition of your true nature, but still find yourself caught in limiting patterns, still longing to fully express—to truly come alive?

If any of this sounds familiar, then keep on reading . . .

What happens on a retreat with Jim?

  • Through meditations, sense-based exercises, live music, silent connecting & intimate dialogues, Jim will guide you with gentle precision towards experiencing yourself and the world in a whole new and wondrous way.
  • From that ‘place’ of clarity and openness, you will begin to see the deeply held beliefs, fear-based patterns and physical clenches that keep you bound up in life.
  • In discovering how to meet those uncomfortable feelings and beliefs from the loving openness of your true nature, those frozen blockages can begin to thaw, enabling your essential qualities—of sensitivity, tenderness, playfulness, courage, compassion, strength, power, etc.—to naturally flow.
  • In the atmosphere of absolute acceptance and support that Jim offers, there is the chance to play with operating spontaneously, in-tuitively, with Being-in-action—with living freedom.
  • Ultimately it all adds up to a celebration of life with openhearted sharing, music, singing, silence, tears and laughter.
  • No previous knowledge is required, just a willingness to openly and honestly explore your immediate, first-hand experience, to courageously question all your beliefs and assumptions, and to feel into your human fragility and whatever fears may arise.

Jim's two-pronged approach of working with each person's inner narratives and shadow aspects, held within the largest possible container of non-dual awareness and Love, is more powerful and comprehensive than any other approach I am aware of. Watching him work is truly exquisite. With incredible delicacy and presence, he facilitates the birth of whatever it is that needs to emerge in that precise moment.


I feel so blessed to have met you Jim! An inspiration in the true meaning of the word. You breathe life into us all with your Being, your sensitivity, acceptance, honouring, warmth and downright normal-ness. What a gift to us all to be able to meet with you and have reflected back what we truly, truly are. Thank you for meeting me exactly where I am each time I sit in the chair; no pressure, no pushing, just an extraordinary patience and trust.


There’s no dogma, no superiority, no guru-ness, no rigid mindset, no rules, just a loving intelligence continually welcoming us back to the home we never left.


Jim is a born teacher—infinitely patient, compassionate, crystal clear and with great integrity. Thank you James, for your wisdom and love.


I am a different person since working with Jim: more real, more loving, more open, more joyous, and certainly much more alive! People remark on it.


I am very glad that Life has brought me to you. Your words and presence had a profound impact on me. After years in a kind of impasse/wilderness I am now filled with joy, with peace.


Jim’s teachings are clear and concise. They took me to a level of understanding that had eluded me for 45 years. A truly life changing experience that opened a new possibility for being alive.


Thank you Jim. You act as a midwife, guiding and supporting us through the pangs and contractions of giving birth to our true selves!


The first time I connected with Jim it was a life-changing epiphany; to totally meet and be met on a transpersonal level—it was literally awesome. This is all I have ever wanted, and I am so grateful that the universe introduced me to someone I resonate with and learn so much from.


Working closely with a guide who knows the territory, who can understand where we are on the journey, who meets us and sees us as we really are and reflects that back to us, is a rare and precious opportunity. Jim is that very guide.


Thank you dear Jim. I've heard the words so many times and no one has ever led me to a place where I could actually experience those words—like what does it mean? That's what I was asking for, and you managed to do it.


About Jim

Jim Eaton graduated in Maths from Oxford University, then tried a number of vocations, including working as a singer-songwriter, an actor, and a school teacher in inner city London. Despite achieving success, he couldn’t shift a profound sense of lack and longing. What followed was an intense spiritual search that culminated in directly realising the wholeness of being—the home he’d been longing for.

Since 2011 Jim has been leading workshops and retreats internationally, guiding others to that same realisation, and to the subsequent life transformation and empowerment it can offer. He lives in Totnes, UK, with his wife, Eleonora, and their two sons, Edward and Ludo.
