Alan is the founder of The Art of Being®. Since 1974 he has been helping people to get free of what holds them back, to realize their full potential and to celebrate fully the gift of being. His workshops address the themes that touch us all most deeply: our personal journey, our connection with our nature, feelings, heart and soul; with sex, love intimacy and relationship; with our death, birth and childhood traumas. Alan’s teaching style is deep, playful and personal.
Alan Lowen has been leading personal growth workshops for over 40 years. He studied psychology first at London University and then at Oxford, where he gave up his doctoral studies to pursue his real calling. His first mentor in the Human Potential realm was Dr. Carl Rogers. In 1977 he became a disciple of Osho Rajneesh, and lived in his ashram, continuing to lead his workshops there until 1985. A few years later he founded The Art of Being® as a path of self-realisation and spiritual awakening. In 2002 he won the UK Kindred Spirit award for his contribution to the field of personal transformation. Alan teaches extensively in Europe and was a regular presenter at both the Omega Institute and the Kripalu Center during his years in the USA. He can be viewed on the UK’s www.conscious.tv where he talks about his life, his work and the book that will be published under a new title.

The Art of Being® is a remarkably human path of personal and spiritual growth. Touching, passionate, humorous, and celebrative, it is potent in its power to transform and awaken! It calls you into the present and teaches you how to keep being here when old habits would shut you down or impair your wholeness and your intimate connection with life happening here and now.
Art of Being workshops and courses cut through the intellectual and verbal layers of knowledge and information to the sensing-feeling depths where you can learn to truly befriend and appreciate the totality of your being. They enable you to heal the wounds that keep you limited, open to all your inner resources, celebrate your nature as a sensual man or woman, find fulfillment in your friendships and intimate relationships, and live in an ever-deepening communion with the spiritual dimension of existence. They nurture consciousness, compassion, grace and beauty in the way you live your life.
