Love to all
I met many people in Boulder, last weekend. Peter Fenner was generous with his time with me. He functions naturally as a teacher even when you're just chatting with him. He possesses a gentle magnetism. Peter is absolutely devoted to teaching nondual awareness. If you are a teacher or beginning to follow the calling to be a teacher, consider Peter's Nondual Teacher Training. I had a chance to look through the guidebook for the course and it seems to touch on every specific detail of teaching. On his website, it says,
"This 9 month Nondual Teacher Training is designed for people who wish to expand and refine their capacity to offer nondual awareness as the central dimension of their teaching, or as a component of their work with individuals and groups.
"The Training is based on the synthesis of Asian nondual approaches that has been developed by Peter Fenner. Peters approach has been refined and tested over 35 years by thousands of people in workshops, courses and retreats. His synthesis draws on the most powerful aspects of traditions such Madhyamika, Dzogchen, Mahamudra, Zen and Advaita. These are woven into a form of space creation and facilitation that is refined, minimalist, smooth, and very efficient in the delivery of the pure nondual contentless transmission in an interactive group setting."

I have also noted that some people drawn to Fenner also speak of Adyashanti as their teacher, as well. Adyashanti is not affiliated with Nondual Teacher Training, just that Adya seems to be an unofficial collaterol guru. As well, both Fenner and Adyashanti are loosely tied to the entire nondual psychotherapy movement, which consists of a bunch of smart and purely nondual men and women.
For the student in the nondual teacher training program, the whole complex makes for tremendous support, good networking, and a steeping within a clean, unfettered wisdom. That complex, at this time, seems to be the heart of work engaged by the person who put on the nondual awareness program in Boulder. There's more to nonduality than the Fenner-nondual psychotherapy-Adyashanti complex, a lot more, but it's a fine system within which to get deeply and intensely trained as a teacher of nonduality.
I met a number of the people within that loosely bound complex, and have know some throughout the years. I'm telling you, they're really good people. Even one of Greg Goode's main students took Peter's Radiant Mind course and he told me he benefitted much from it. So although Peter's work is identified as part of the complex I described, it is useful beyond any affiliations. It's universal.
Here's the Radiant Mind link: http://www.radiantmind.net/video.htm
Nondual Teacher Training link: http://nondualtraining.com/. This is the first year for nondual teacher training, so you can be part of the first batch of teachers. They even teach you how to set up a practice. You must have a small teaching group in order to practice what you will learn. Fenner helps you to find a group, but you could probably see if anyone online would be interested in supporting your coursework by serving as a student. It would be helpful to all parties.
