About

Huge gratitude to everyone who has supported us throughout the Kick starter campaign. Alas we have not met our funding target this time around.

Stay tuned and continue supporting this book at www.lookingfortheobvious.com

LET'S DO IT. 

So you see, this book is beyond the realm of publications. It heads straight to a vision of a world where people know themselves, and create a world where people connect to others. And so we invite you dear KICKSTARTER contributors, to join us. Let’s give this project some gusto to get up and walk.

Okay, I’m in. This vision is awesome! How else can I support you?

Gee, thanks. Other than donating you can help us to shout from the rooftops about this project and share away on social media.

Risks and challenges

We are dedicated to the fulfillment of this project. The area of self publication and distribution is new for us. We have added a six week buffer to the target date stated in the rewards to mitigate any unforeseen challenges. Throughout the journey you can be assured that we will keep you updated every step of the way.

    INSIDE OUT: Come and spend five days with us at a luxury retreat in the heart of the English countryside. We will explore the nature of ourselves: who we are beyond our physical bodies. The five days will be an experiential probe into the realm of “I”. You’ll leave with an opening for understanding who you really are and rather than reacting to the external environment, you’ll be able to respond from within: a real “inside out” experience of life. This self-awareness retreat follows no particular practice, style, or theology. Please be aware that there will be long periods of peaceful silence :) Food and accommodation included.
