Every day we slaughter our finest impulses. That is why we get a heartache when we read those lines written by the hand of a master and recognize them as our own, as the tender shoots which we stifled because we lacked the faith to believe in our own powers, our own criterion of truth and beauty. Every man, when he gets quiet, when he becomes desperately honest with himself, is capable of uttering profound truths. We all derive from the same source. There is no mystery about the origin of things. We are all part of creation, all kings, all poets, all musicians; we have only to open up, only to discover what is already there. – Henry Miller

Nonduality Satsang is a democratic gathering of people interested in nonduality, regardless of its source or tradition. By democratic we mean that we take more of "sharing circle" approach in our coming together rather than a "teacher in the front of the room" approach.

What is nonduality? Things are highly individualistic and at the same time non-separate or "not two." Nonduality literally means "not two." How this apparent paradox comes to be known as living experience, rather than as merely intellectual concept, could be called the journey to nondual understanding or self-realization.

What is satsang? Satsang means the company of lovers of truth. Satsang is known by the inclination toward the space of awareness, be-ing, or not-knowing.

What we do: Wherever you are on this journey to nonduality, all that is required in this satsang is that you come from your truth, your honesty, whether you speak, read from a book, get up and dance, or sit silently. We do not view one person as more enlightened or more correct than anyone else. This is about lovers of truth coming together and sharing in an honest way, enjoying each other's company, and celebrating the wonder of existence. You don't need to be a nonduality teacher or a famous sage to do that.

Welcome!

Oh one more thing...

We hold to these guidelines adapted from The Way of Liberation, by Adyashanti, which book may be downloaded here:  http://www.adyashanti.org/library/The_Way_of_Liberation_Ebook.pdf:
They are meant to reflect an attitude of mutual openness, compassion, and support.

1. Study groups should be safe and compassionate environments in which to explore, share, and put into practice [the teachings of nonduality].
2. All study groups should be free of charge, unless the group is renting a space to meet in.
3. No one should act as a teacher or try to dominate a group.
4. When someone is sharing their experience, do not judge what they are sharing. If asked for, give feedback by speaking only from your own experience. Do not try to be the teacher.

Please note that Nonduality Satsang is not an Adyashanti group. We welcome teachings from all traditions, teachers, sages, experiences, and backgrounds.
