Nonduality: The Varieties of Expression

Starting February 1, 2018, will operated by James Traverse.

James Traverse has over 40 years of experience in the art and science of yoga. He is a yoga educator and writer who communicates the direct approach to understanding your true nature. This experiential means, which is founded on a switchover from conceiving to purely perceiving, flowered principally out of Jamesí studies with his teacher, Jean Klein, who initiated him in the ways of Advaita Vedanta and Kashmiri Shaivism. His other influences include the works of J. Krishnamurti, David Bohm, Rumi, Adi Shankaracharya, Ramana Maharshi, Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj, Atmananda Krishnamenon and the yoga of B K S Iyengar, whose method he studied intensely for the first 15 years of his yoga journey.

contact. Where already, supernatural instinct teaches us that the function of
this abyss of freedom, which has been open within our midsts, is to draw us
utterly out of our own selfhood and into its own immensity of liberation."
~Thomas Merton

Limitless undying love
which shines around me like a million suns,
It calls me on and on across the universe.

"The natural state is just itself and nothing else, whether thoughts are arising 
or not. Having no thoughts is not the essential practice of Dzogchen. There is 
nothing wrong with having thoughts; it is natural for thoughts to arise. They 
represent the creative potentiality or dynamism of the Nature of Mind. When 
we are in the
Natural State, there are no special thoughts associated with it. 
The natural state is always there whether thoughts are present or not. The 
problem is to recognize this
Natural State without being distracted by
