Shakti Caterina Maggi ~ Embodied nonduality

Saturday, June 29, 2024 @ 10:00am-12:00noon (Pacific Time)

Lisa Cairns ~ About Love, Wisdom, and Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

Sunday, June 30, 2024 @ 9:00am-11:00am (Pacific Time)

What non-duality means to me is that my life flows in between love and wisdom, or between nothingness and everythingness. It’s on this level that the human experience unfolds. Understanding that I am everything signifies the end of separation, recognizing that everything is love; and acknowledging that I am nothing represents wisdom. In between these realizations, the story of my life, or the life of the person, takes shape.

Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj was my teacher, although he had passed away before I had the chance to meet him in person. Instead, I encountered his teachings through my own teachers. I feel immense gratitude for the way his teachings entered my life. On a human level, I can say that non-duality saved me. It completely transformed my life, altering its course in every way imaginable. It awakened me from the illusion I had been living under, the suffering of a mental reality.

For the past eleven years, Lisa has traveled around the world, sharing the amazing Indian philosophy called non-duality. She tries to communicate the limitless nature of life, and to open doors for anyone who wants to listen, providing a broader perspective on this magical thing we call life.
