Meet others interested in discussing what is pointed to in non-dual teachings such as Advaita, Dogzchen, or other traditions. Watch/Listen (DVDs), and/or discuss the teachings of classic non-dual teachers / sages such as Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta, H.W.L. Poonja (Papaji) as well as more contemporary ones such as Adyashanti, Burt Harding, Leo Hawkins, Byron Katie, Suzanne Segal, Scott Kiloby, Eckhart Tolle, Unmani, and many others.

Language can provide at best only pointers to the underlying oneness that permeates All That Is—even as things may appear as distinct and separate. Present awareness cannot be described or defined. Non-duality points at oneness by indicating it is “not two.” As this cannot be grasped by the mind, it leads to many paradoxes such as “no one is ever enlightened,” “seeking leads you away from what you seek,” “no technique can give you to enlightenment.”

“Satsang means association with your own true nature. Satsang is not going to someone and becoming a student. ... [In] satsang you are not to do anything and you are not to undo anything.” – H.W.L. Poonja

Meet others interested in exploring these topics in a social setting. No single teaching/teacher is promoted in these meetings.
