Teacher: Dave Oshana

New seekers with stars in their eyes are sometimes shocked to discover that I don't believe in anything. But it isn't so bad a place to be because by not having a fixed position I can believe in everything. But why bother? Life is too short to believe this, that and the other - I'd rather experience Life and know what is real than believe in stories.

You won't get off the spiritual path if you are invested in believing a single thing. Don't believe - instead know. If you want to discover Reality then don't believe in a single created thing. Reality is what precedes Creation.

On the spiritual path scepticism is your best friend. Scepticism sharpens the razor's edge of discrimination. You need to be sharp, otherwise you will be the blunt tool (which rhymes with "fool").

If you want to stay on the spiritual theme park merry-go-round then avoid discrimination at all costs. But if you are tired of the shiny, shimmering fake ride then hold scepticism in your bag of special abilities. It will get you out of some tight corners in which others have met their spiritual death through ignorance.

Awareness, energy and then scepticism are the first tools a spiritual seeker needs to climb the mountain to Enlightenment. If you are ready for the climb then join me this Sunday.

Book your online classes now at daveoshana.com. Please don't try to get in at the last minute - it might not work - we might go over quota or the need to give you tech support. Plus if you apply in good time then you will receive a helpful email about preparing for the class.

Feedback welcome.

Please be aware that the Enlightenment Transmission is extremely powerful, so make sure you drink enough water and take a relaxed posture, preferably on your back with cushion under you head and knees.

Practical Details

But that are some practical details that you should test NOW, and well before class, to ensure that you are in the front row and comfortably tuned in. It's all rather simple. Even a Windows 98 user can tune in. And your PC probably has everything that you need if you have listened to music or watched film online.

You are recommended to install Firefox browser and Real_Alternative - if you have not installed them already. Install your embedded browser players only when your browser is closed.

1. You need a media player (see list below). Install them all or find alternatives
2. Only if you don't have one already, you need to register a username account with daveoshana.com (free and simple)
3. Activate your account via the account activation email link (check your spam box or use the contact form if you don't receive one)
4. Test the media players, to see if you can hear whatever is playing now (probably the most recent AUDIOcast)
5. Be logged in 1 hour before class when we switch audio streams and see which player plays best.
6. Get a tall drink. Relax and listen. You're in!

Embedded Media Players

We recommend Firefox browser and have had good results with light non-commercial players like QuickTime Alternative and Real_Alternative.

You can also use Windows Media Player, QuickTime and Real Player for live classes. It seems that different people have different results with the various media players.

Installation note: you have to completely close all of your your internet browser windows *before* installing a player.

Alternative Media Players
The following non-commercial media players may work better than the commercial originals. They are light, tight and fit - and don't install rubbish.
QuickTime Alternative and Real_Alternative

Windows Media Player

Windows Media Player Firefox Plugin  

WMP for MAC

Quicktime Player

Quicktime Player - reportedly Windows QT only works with live stream, not 24 hour broadcast

Real Player

Windows Real Player (might not work in Internet Explorer)

MAC Real Player

Linux Real Player


Old PC, Windows NT4.0 / 98 / ME / 2000

Real Player, Gold 10.5
