The Headless Way
My name is Richard Lang, and I have been involved with the Headless Way for over fifty years. When I was a teenager, I was interested in finding out who I really was, and by chance, one day found myself in a workshop with Douglas Harding, author of On Having No Head. Douglas took me and the other participants through some of his experiments and we all saw our True Nature. Douglas extended a hand of friendship to anyone interested in the Headless Way, so I began visiting him and, over the years, made many friends who value this direct method of Awakening. One of the things I have learned is that it is very helpful to have friends with whom I can share this Awareness, or Seeing as we call it. I recommend connecting up with other Seers. The Seeing is infectious.
As well as practicing this Way, I was personally drawn to sharing it. So, over the years I have given many workshops. I also set up a charitable trust to help make available this modern method of seeing Who we really are. We offer many things on our website, and on our YouTube channel and publish practically all of Douglas Harding’s books. We also provide zoom meetings where people can get to know other Seers. Our ambition is to make Seeing as widely available as possible. This is why we are happy to be part of Innercraft.

The Headless Way was begun by Douglas Harding, author of On Having No Head. It is a modern way of seeing your True Nature, the limitless ’space’ you are looking out of. At the heart of The Headless Way are the ‘experiments’ which guide your attention to your True Nature.
Watch the videos on the experiments that are here available on Innercraft, but don’t just watch them! Please actually do them with an open mind. The experiments point out the difference between what you look like to others and to yourself in the mirror, and what you are for yourself, your First-Person experience of yourself. Put simply, for others you are a person, for yourself you are space for the world! That is quite a difference! But of course, I am not asking you to take my word for this. Test it, using the experiments. See for yourself if it is true. See for yourself Who you really are.
The experiments also explore some of the implications of this experience of your True Nature—how it works out in relationships, in terms of stress, creativity, and so on. I hope you enjoy the Headless Way, and I look forward to meeting you in one of the zoom meetings here on Innercraft.
