I’ll be damned if I live and die without ever looking to see who is doing that.

Douglas Harding

Born: February 12, 1909

Died: January 11, 2007 (Age 97)

Douglas Edison Harding was an English philosophical writer, mystic, spiritual teacher and author of a number of books. Though he never thought of himself as a guru, Harding dedicated his life to empirically investigating the question of his true identity and later sought to share his insights, primarily through his writings and via workshops requiring audience participation. Simultaneously directing attention 'inwards' and 'outwards,' Harding explored what was immediately given regarding the Subject and its relationship with the objective world, testing mystical claims about the true nature of the self, for example, against his own experience. He took seriously, too, the scientific account of what a man amounts to, seamlessly integrating the outside and inside views into a new map of humanity’s place in the universe.
