We come together twice a month to study nondualistic teachings, with an emphasis on "Direct Path" Advaita Vedanta. All are welcome to join our meetings, even if you are not from the Triangle area (Raleigh-Durham-Chapel Hill NC). We currently host meetings online via Zoom, and post-COVID, will continue to provide online access to our in-person meetings.
Each gathering is in a 'read and discuss' style format. It is important to the group that we live the teachings of nondualism by giving equal respect to all attendees as both teachers and students. Therefore, everyone who attends is welcome to contribute their reflections and pose questions to the group on the current book selection as well as nonduality in general. We focus on the practical application of the teachings, and also serve as a support group as we collectively integrate these transformative practices into our own lives.
To get a better idea of the texts we will be reading, our first two selections are “Be As You Are, the Teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi” as edited by David Godman, and “I Am That, Talks with Nisargadatta Maharaj.”
Please contact the group organizers (Lauren and Robby) for more information. We look forward to hearing from you and hope to see you at our next meeting!
Welcome to the group Liora! It was wonderful to have you join us!
At our next meeting we will continue reading Part Five: Experience in "Be As You Are, The Teachings of Sri Ramana Maharshi" edited by David Godman.
The meeting will start with a brief meditation followed by a chance to share what's been on your heart and mind if you wish. We will spend the majority of our time together reading and discussing the book and we will end with a final, brief meditation.
