To explore the gap between the tradition of eastern nondualistic philosophy (eg Advaita Vedanta) and western scientific rationalism. Nondualism maintains that, despite appearances, everything is ultimately one (namely Brahman accoring to the Vedanta). This is inspired by the SAND (Science and NonDuality) conference, which started in San Francisco in 2009, and the first European SAND was held in Amsterdam in April 2012. This is for anyone who is interested in reconciling the seemingly incompatible worldviews that we get from modern science and ancient nondual mysticism. This is a non-dogmatic, non-doctrinal group, which embraces nondualism from any tradition - Hinduism, Buddhism, Christianity.

Note: This Meetup group is inspired by, and seeks the same aims as, the great Science and NonDuality Conference (SAND) conference, www.scienceandnonduality.com, but has no official connection with SAND. Any views expressed here are those of the organiser of this Meetup group, and not necessarily those of SAND.
