Have you ever wondered about how best to live your life? Religions claim to have answers, but they are couched in faith and constrained by rituals that make each religion different from the next. The inevitable result has been conflict and war. Enlightened Living is neither religious nor spiritual, offering instead a rational and practical path that is available to everyone. Enlightenment isn’t found by austerity or following rituals but by the sustained practice of observing attachments and letting them go.

Derek Roger spent his professional life in academic research and teaching, mainly at the University of York in the UK, but also at the University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand, where he lived for 12 years before returning to the UK in 2015. Although he enjoyed a highly successful career in academe, his abiding interest is in practical philosophy, seeking answers to the perennial question of how to act wisely in the world. His search led to many organisations offering answers, but their adherence to particular traditions meant that they remained separate from one another. Enlightened Living emerged from Derek’s desire to develop an approach which transcends these differences, offering a way of living in the world which is neither spiritual nor esoteric but is instead grounded in the here and now.
