Welcome to Nick Roach Teachings, offering both an introduction and a source of deep self-knowldge for the more experienced seeker.
There are many teachers, teachings, Masters and Gurus, often quite different from one another. This site is one person's journey to escape the emotional struggle and enter the state or experience that many call Spiritual Enlightenment. There are other names for this including Self Realisation, God Realisation, Liberation, being 'awake' or being 'nothing' to name a few.
Perhaps more surprisingly, as unchanging as the truth is, and often summarised simply as 'I am This' (whatever 'This' is), the story thereafter can be very different depending on numerous factors; including the person's own upbringing, attitude, culture and mental capacity. Therefore, as rare as it is to find someone who is truly Enlightened (or whichever term they prefer to use), it is perhaps even rarer to find two Enlightened teachers who teach exactly the same thing. As a result, this has led to much confusion and debate amongst those searching for the answers and those teaching it.
We invite you to enjoy what is here but, if you are looking for answers, comparing those contained within Nick's teaching with others in an attempt to understand them all is likely to only confuse you further. As the Buddha is recorded to have said over 2000 years ago, 'Do not believe what anyone tells you, even if I tell you, unless it agrees with your own common sense and experience'.
For more information about Nick Roach and his teaching, follow the links at the top of the page for a description of Nick's path and the struggle he went through for many years. Also find information on upcoming meetings and books and CDs available, and a few questions and answers as an example of the types of subjects Nick deals with.
The majority of the contents of this site were posted over a 10 year period between 2004 and 2014. In 2016 Nick published his spiritual autobiography and the Facebook page was created, and in 2017 Nick began making short videos describing both his teaching and any updates that were occuring within him.
The journey into one's own 'being' is forever deepening, and thus the teaching moves on too. This in no way invalidates what has been said before, but it does mean that it may have been said in a clearer way, or perhaps from a slightly different perspective, at a later date.
Please feel free to contact Nick if you have any questions. Contact
In November 2017 I created a video (for another channel actually) in which I described some of the highlights of my journey.
