Introducing Cory Bright http://www.bethat.org/openway.htm
I don't know whether Cory is an enlightened guru or a sage, but he is offering nonduality in a form that is interesting. He hold meetings in which participants consider the teaching of an enlightened sage. There are other groups doing similar work -- these are like bible study groups -- and we're glad to mention them on The Highlights.
We all yearn to find our freedom
in this world. We do this because we know there is more to
us than the limited views on life that we were taught. We
feel this limitation and sense that our true nature is to be free
and hence, the search for our freedom. So we start looking
outside ourselves to satisfy this inner knowing.
It is not as common, however, to question, who is the one that wants this freedom. When attention is directed in this way, the myth of who we thought we are evaporates. It was only an illusory identity and untrue thought in our mind that kept us separate and suffering.
Love and freedom exist as the natural state of being!! When this is seen, and it can happen instantaneously, it is seen that this being does not exist in limitation at all and is inherently free!!
False notions, boundaries, defenses, self images melt away. Actually, they were never there except in your own mind! We are left with pure, unhindered beingness. "Now" we exist in a place of awareness and freedom far beyond anything ever dreamed of. It is obvious and self verifying!
Often our lives become a continual, perhaps foggy, muddled search for truth or freedom or just happiness in whatever form that takes. Our gatherings will take you beyond the doubt of being and make clear, what you always knew was true in your heart.
See our schedule and giant list of teachers of nonduality and manifesting reality below who we will be sharing in our gatherings!

ABOUT THE LIST OF TEACHERS
Important note: I have decided to leave what teacher we are going to present at each gathering as a surprise!! Yet it will be one from the list below. This way we rely more on our own sharing and looking than a dependency on the teacher alone!! No doubt the teacher will have a great impact too!! When love, awareness knowing is brought into a room... well... "love is all you need". Even if you do not know the particular teacher or are not interested, the meditation and inquiry need not focus on those particulars, it is all about connecting, sharing loving and knowing the BASICS of who we are in truth. The general theme will always have a heavy emphasis on nonduality with its relation to manifesting reality. To give you a rough idea, much of the nondual nature of our gatherings will lean toward the type of teachings like Advaita, Vedanta, Eckhart Tolle, Gangaji, Adyashanti, Krishnamurti, Buddhism, Zen, Ramana Maharshi, Nisargadatta Maharaj, A Course in Miracles, then more contemporaries like Wayne Dyer, Deepak Chopra, Marianne WIlliamson etc and the apparent mix of nonduality and manifesting reality is - The Forum, est, Avatar Lifespring, Ron Smothermon etc. and to round it out manifesting realities teachings like Conversations with God, Elan, Sanaya Roman, Seth, Ramtha, Abraham Hicks (The Secret). Quantum Physics etc. We do not compromise the truth of nonduality, so please..all you pure nondualists, this is for you, and yet we embrace the appearances of creating reality. More on this later.
THE LIST OF TEACHERS
ALPHABETICAL BY FIRST NAME
This list will be added to and your suggestions are welcome. Many are aware and enlightened and if you do not know them (most of them, I would think) you will learn to love them!! We will do gatherings more often with some of the more popular, powerful teachings.
