How to Realize Nonduality with Ease

Many people consider nonduality an esoteric philosophy that's difficult to grasp. In fact, nonduality is not a philosophy at all ~ the term simply points to what we all experience directly once we learn to shed the dualistic concepts we superimpose onto reality, concepts such as me vs. other, us vs. them, positive vs. negative, natural vs. technological, spirit vs. matter, spiritual vs. worldly, and countless others. We must labor to deconstruct these dualistic concepts if we want to have a permanently unbounded and holistic experience of reality, but even prior to doing that work we can also learn how to simply sidestep them and access natural (unconstructed) Awareness-Presence for at least a few moments. When we do this 'micro-meditation' of being with what is, as natural Awareness-Presence, several times a day, it gives us easeful access to the experience of fullness, beauty, and profound gratitude for existence, whatever our circumstances.

How to Expand from the Center: Tantrik Yoga Practices from the Recognition Sutras

"The Joy of Awareness is accessed through the expansion of the Center" is a key teaching of nondual Tantra (aka Kashmīr Shaivism) given in the Recognition Sutras, also known as the Pratyabhijñā-hṛdayam. But exactly how does one "expand the Center"?  The great siddha master Kṣemarāja taught 10 powerful practices in Chapter 18 of the Recognition Sutras, practices that together constitute a complete sādhanā, or spiritual practice. These practices were not accurately or clearly conveyed by earlier translations of the text. In this workshop, you will learn those practices and how to integrate them in your daily life: practices such as dissolving mental constructs, accessing the central channel, becoming the whole field of awareness, stimulating the upper and lower Kuṇḍalinī, activating icchā-śakti in the heart, and more.
