“The beauty of this invitation is that nothing needs to be changed, fixed or eliminated. It is a non-dualistic, nonjudgmental enquiry into our present being. Everything happens through the agency of awareness.”

Isaac Shapiro

Being a student of Papaji (India) Isaacs roots are with Advaita.

He draws on a broad spectrum of understanding, from neurophysiology to some of the latest discoveries in Quantum physics which he applies in a light hearted but direct way.

His approach is to ask questions and make statements. He asks participants in his meetings to question and see if what he says is true in their own being. This approach points to what is already known, but obscured in the ways our nervous system and our thinking function.

Meetings in Truth

An invitation to recognise the Truth of your self, who you are and have always been. As you are already This there is no need for any effort or “getting there”, just the simple recognition of That in which everything appears.
The only moment you can know This is now.
To know This is wisdom, peace, and freedom.

We all seem to have automatic, unconscious patterns that play and cause difficulty for ourselves and those around us, especially those that are closest to us.
To live like this is an expression of unconditional love in which there is a savouring of this moment`s experience as the beloved. This invitation is facilitated through gentle, direct enquiry.

“Try to suffer consciously. I love when these unconscious habits reveal themselves, including how they show up as what is happening in the world.”


Through years of working with people, Isaac has cultivated and refined an ability to track what is happening in the nervous system of participants. Bringing this awareness to peoples attention, allows our natural, innate self-regulating mechanism to be re-established.

As we bring awareness to these unconscious habits, there is a shift that occurs. In the course of investigation, people spontaneously recognize the true nature of themselves, which many report as the experience of peace, unconditional love, compassion, or simply of being home.

“Becoming conscious of these habits, which are not personal, but feel really personal, influence the field. Our attention is all we have to give. Where and how our attention focuses produces both the sense of ourselves and also the sense of the universe we live in.”
