Since the pandemic, fewer teachers are available for local meetings, and more teachings are onling. Yet there is a value and synergy in meeting in person! This satsang is facilitated by Kathleen McTeigue and Tomas Phillips, two locals who’ve experienced the teachings directly. We’ll explore Nondual Awakening, and direct experience, yours and ours. We’ll talk about these topics:
* What do I awaken from, and to?
* Is nondual awakening available to anyone?
* What is duality like in our everyday lives, and what is nonduality?
* What happens to the ego in awakening?
* Can the spiritual ego co-opt awakening?
Kathleen had a spontaneous awakening to nondual nature. This recognition of the unitive nature of reality, forever altered her perspective. It revealed the illusory nature of a separate self and the indescribable essence of our true nature. The awakening was the beginning of an alchemical process of transformation, including as a student of Adyasanti. She enjoys being in satsang and spiritual community with fellow lovers of truth.

Tomas has been hosting nondual satsangs since 2004. His first teacher was Adyashanti, and his current teacher is Angelo DiLullo. He experienced a consciousness shift on a Sunday afternoon in 2006. Since then he’s learned to make the teachings his own, through inquiry, and looking within. Awakening is a continuous process of expansion, away from fixed positions of the mind, to freedom in all areas of life.
