This is an ongoing class on Non-Dual education and practice.  The word Non-Duality  is becoming more and more popular but the profound meaning and process of learning the real prerequisites are often missing in some modern interpretations.  In this class we will continue to point out some of the essential step by step prerequisites necessary to truly practice such a profound way of life.  In our last class we covered some of these via, Shankara’s Advaita Vedanta. In this class we will explore various Buddhist Non-Dual procedures.  We are not tied to any one system of Non-Duality and we look into cross-cultural and cross-discipline approaches for maximum benefit and also so we do not become overly ‘stuck’ on ‘the’ approach.  By this cross-cultural and multi-disciplined approach to Non-Duality we will develop a more universal and powerful procedure to quickly and effectively penetrate the heart of Non-Duality.  We will also discover how to use deep devotion in the path of Non-Duality which is not at all understood by some who attempt the path.  It is usually thought to be a totally different discipline, but in our study of ‘COMPREHENSIVE NON-DUALITY’ we will discover this process in due time.

This class is taught by a prior Western monastic in Advaita Vedanta who is cross trained in several different Buddhist processes (such as Zen and Tibetan Buddhism) and has an extensive knowledge of philosophy, both East and West and also a scientific background.  He has over 30 years of training and sharing of this most profound philosophy.  Michael is the author of Non-Dualism ‘A New Experiment in Living.’  (more…)
