Welcome to my Site.

If you’re here, my guess is that you’re someone who is craving something ‘more’ in your spiritual and personal life (even if you can’t put your finger on it). And, after years of reading self help books (and maybe feeling more self-helpless) you’ve likely discovered that you would rather realize the wisdom in yourself, but you’re not sure how.

Maybe you feel like you have lost yourself and are drawn to go inside and see what’s true around the deep questions of life like, “Who am I?”, “Why am I here?” and “What is really going on with me”. After years of looking for the answers outside of yourself (e.g. relationships, religion, gurus, substances, distraction) you’ve come to the conclusion that the only solution left is to go within. And that, if you don’t, you will go without.

If you’re like many who find their way to this website, you likely:

My name is Russell Scott and for the past 35 years I’ve led hundreds of retreats working with thousands of Independent Inquirers, Spiritual Non-Followers and Mystic Misfits to release the weight of their past so that they can create a deeper more fulfilling life and ‘come home’ to themselves. Russell’s Story

And I’ve found there are two blocks holding them back:

Block #1 – Dogma:

I have found that many spiritual seekers are slowed down by the crutches of external dogma. I am sure you know, it’s a confusing spiritual scene out there. There are lots of groups, religions and scenes promoting their beliefs systems. There’s one thing I have learned in my many years of leading retreats and running a retreat centre: We need to let go of believing and experience the truth for ourselves. I’ve seen many get lost in the books, philosophies and religious ideologies that make sense for only a little while but create a reliance on getting answers from the outside. They end up in their heads and feel disconnected from the joy of life.

Block #2 – Going it Alone:

It’s difficult trying to do this by ourselves… but we don’t have to do it alone. In fact, I’ve found that spirituality can be a way that people isolate themselves and this isolation can actually prevent their evolution. It’s so hard to persist on our path without support. But there is another approach where we come together to assist each other to self-inquire into the mystery of self and life (which I’ve come to call ‘co-evolution’). In my experience, it can actually be a beautiful compliment to your solo practice and often get you there much faster. We can all use a little help from our friends. You can read about it in my book Awaken the Guru in You – The spiritual seekers guide to inner peace, self-acceptance and who you really are” and you can find more information by just reading some of my blogs. Go ahead and have fun exploring.

And, while you’re here, be sure to download my ebook: The Independent Seekers’ Guide to Living from the Inside Out. It’s free just for you visiting my website.

Russell Allen Scott is one of the most amazing human beings I know. I’ve known Russell now for nearly 20 years. He has contributed to some of the most amazing and powerful awakening and life transforming experiences I’ve had. He is a brilliantly simple man, who has the capacity to make anyone laugh to tears, cry with joy and awaken to their endless possibilities. His spiritual retreats are inspiring, transformative and empowering. His book, Awaken The Guru In You, will blow your mind. It describes his work, passion and purpose and is dedicated to helping others do the same. It is simply brilliant. Russell is a mentor whom I think everyone should meet.
