Mooji – An Invitation To Freedom
Mooji is a spiritual teacher originally from Jamaica, he moved to Brixton in London as a teenager and became a street portrait artist in the West End, and later taught art at a local college.
In 1987 at a chance meeting with a Christian mystic, he had a life-changing encounter through prayer, that brought him into the direct experience of the Supreme within.
This inspired him to ‘walk out of his life’ and in 1993 he embarked on a spiritual journey through India, eventually landing at the feet of the man who became his Master, the late Sri HWL Poonja, AKA Papaji.
Following in his footsteps Mooji now regularly conduct large Satsang gatherings throughout the world, sharing self-inquiry and directing his students to question, who or what they are at the deepest level.
