Welcome to Nondual Wisdom Conference!
Realization as Resource: Trauma and the Heart of Healing
The theme of this year's conference is "Realization as Resource: Trauma and the Heart of Healing". Together therapists, spiritual teachers and participants will explore how a connection with the Ground of Being can be a resource in addressing and healing different forms of psychological trauma. We will also see how traumatic material can interfere with the realization and expression of True Nature in the body, and the ways in which psycho-therapeutic and spiritual modalities can work in conjunction to uncover a deeper and more abiding sense of wholeness.
Nonduality derives from the Sanskrit word Advaita, which means "not-two," referring to the fundamental consciousness that underlies the apparent distinction between perceiver and perceived. From the nondual perspective, the split between self and other is a purely mental construct. This understanding, rooted in the direct experience of countless sages through millennia, is at the heart of Hindu Vedanta, Judaism, Islam, and many schools of Buddhism, Taoism, and mystical Christianity. Nonduality points to "That" which is before and beyond the projections of a seperative, self-reflexive mind. As nondual awareness emerges in the West in both therapists and clients, the practical and theoretical implications for psychotherapy are far-reaching. This annual cutting edge conference hosts leading therapists and teachers who are exploring the confluence of nondual wisdom and psychotherapy. How does psychotherapy change when therapists and clients awaken to and embody their true nature as open, lucid awareness that is essentially not separate from the whole of life?
