Biography: 

Steve Ford grew up in England in a hard-working family which had no interest in religion. When he was 18, his world was suddenly rocked by the revelation that the man he’d known all his life as his father was not, in fact, his biological father. With his whole identity called into question, he spent the next ten years attempting to submerge his doubts and confusion in alcohol. By the age of 27, he was a recovering alcoholic. Intent on finding an honesty that would propel him into a more productive direction, he spent the next three and a half years engaged in an examination of every aspect of his so-called "self."

One night in his room in 1999, there was a total falling away of all identification as the personal self. All vestiges of personality were suddenly gone, and there was direct and immediate seeing as and from no-thing, from the absolute. This was particularly unusual in that Steve had had no prior experience of spiritual seeking, neither teacher nor guru, no paradigm which would explain what had happened.

Such accounts exist within spiritual literature, and in each case there appears to follow a period of relative dysfunctionality and subsequent reintegration, such that what has happened may be understood and conveyed within the world of form. In Steve’s case this took the form of an exhaustive investigation in consciousness which he eventually came to refer to as The Living Process. He explains that realization is just the beginning and, unless subsequent investigation into the nature of consciousness takes place, there is re-identification and consequently self-orientation around no-thing.

Today Steve holds contemplative meetings and retreats in Bristol and the South of England which reflect his grounding in non-dual reality.
