Integral Nondual Spirituality

   

Nondual spirituality begins with the insight that we are already that which we are seeking. Though we are not “God,” we are already one with Spirit. From this perspective, we deepen spiritually more by relaxing into our always already the case union with Spirt rather than by effortful practice. In doing so we discover the God within and our oneness with all life.
