Thurs, Oct 22: Workshop with Eben Alexander, M.D. and Karen Newell: Living in a Mindful Universe
Thurs, Oct 22: Opening night lecture, Eben Alexander, M.D.
This year’s gathering is centered around the theme of Living and Dying. Nondual teachings assert that our essential reality—pure consciousness—is ever-present, undivided, and never comes in or out of existence. In itself, it knows no separation, no birth and no death, no beginning and no end. Yet birth and death are no abstract concepts; they are at the heart of manifestation and thus of our human existence. Mystics of all traditions have pointed to death as one of the ultimate teachers. It is through the contemplation of, and the surrender to death that we come to fully embrace, not only life, but reality itself.
