This method of self-enquiry, sometimes called 'headlessness' or 'seeing who you really are' ('seeing' for short), is a contemporary approach which investigates the question Who am I? and suggests that you can see Who you really are here and now. It provides simple but deep awareness exercises that direct you to this Seeing within yourself.  
Capacitie: "No brims nor borders such as in a bowl we see, my essence was Capacitie"  "Capacitie was the word used by Thomas Traherne to describe his essential being. Terms such as Original Nature, True Nature, First Nature, What we really are, Now, etc., are probably the more readily recognized contemporary equivalents. It is an attempt to combine the strands of enquiry and activity which I have found to most fruitful in dis-covering Capacitie. I look upon the website as another strand in the enquiry referred to above, a form of participation in what Traherne called the Fellowship of the Mystery. "- by Alan Mann, with information on Traherne, Douglas Harding, and John Wren-Lewis.
