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.

The Nonduality Highlights -




Last night I begged the Wise One to tell me the secret of the world.
Gently, gently he whispered,
"Be quiet, the secret cannot be spoken, it is wrapped in silence."


~ Rumi

Something happens when two of us or more sit together in silence. As time 
goes by a common understanding is established by itself. Is it possible to 
have a dialogue as in comments closer to the thinking of the brighter mind? If
at the point of responding, if this could establish any correct observation of 
change, it will require silence first.

Re: Relationship & Oneness


"Where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them." ~
Jesus (Matthew


"Sanctify them in the truth . . . that they may all be one. As you, Father, are in
me and I am in you, may they also be in us." ~ Jesus (John


by Wayne Ferguson, NDH reader contribution



In the middle of the “hurricane-that-you-are” lies the eternally silent and
peaceful “I”… the mysterious still point of reality that’s both completely
empty…AND completely full. Going there, you’ll discover that all that there
REALLY is, is this ONE “I.” Tat tvam asi.

You Go On Ahead



Forgive me if I stop here...
Here where I cannot find myself as an object, anywhere.
And have discovered, with a shock, that "I" don't exist.


Let me just rest here for awhile,
Reveling in this Unimaginable Freedom,
Before we go on to think "about" it all.


To come up with words like "Consciousness"
Or "Awareness",
Or... whatever.


Words to describe what remains,
Where I found myself not to be,

Where I find no thing, but only the event of Existence.


Words to explain the unexplainable,
To speak of that which cannot be spoken of,
To describe this Great Mystery.


It's enough for me to simply rest here,
Knowing only that I don't exist,
And yet... Existence, Consciousness, Bliss Is.


On second thought...
You know what?
You go on ahead.


I'll catch up with you later,
And you can tell me all that you've come up with
As you've moved on, in thought, from this Simplicity.


Just please forgive me,
If I appear uninterested.
For in this Fullness and Completion,
I've become rather simple minded.


~ Chuck Surface
