The Essence of Non-Duality

What You’ll Learn

Join renowned spiritual teacher Rupert Spira as we explore the perennial, non-dual understanding that lies at the heart of all the great spiritual traditions, such as:

  • Advaita Vedanta
  • Kashmir Shaivism
  • Buddhism
  • Mystical Christianity
  • Zen and Sufism
  • Ever-present reality of our own experience

This is a contemporary, experiential approach involving guided meditation and dialogue, and requires no affiliation to any particular religious or spiritual tradition. Bring with you an interest in the essential nature of experience, and in the longing for love, peace and happiness around which most of our lives revolve.

“Everything that is known or experienced is known by the mind, in the mind, through the mind. Therefore, in order to know the nature of anything that is known or experienced, it is first necessary to know the nature of the mind. Therefore, there can be no higher knowledge nor any greater endeavor upon which the mind can embark, than to know its own essential nature.”

– Rupert Spira

Rupert Spira

From an early age Rupert Spira was deeply interested in the nature of reality. At the age of seventeen he learnt to meditate, and began studying and practicing the teachings of the classical Advaita Vedanta tradition under the guidance of Dr. Francis Roles and Shantananda Saraswati, the Shankaracharya of the north of India, which he continued for the next for twenty years.
