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.

I also want to mention having spent some quality time with Highlights reader Jonah Mark Bekerman at the Conference. I previously referred to him as "Jonathan" and apologize for the error. Jonah is a counselor for a methadone program and dedicated to the teaching of nonduality.




James Traverse writes...


I really - truly - sincerely -  enjoyed and benefited from the SAND
conference - someone said [I don't remember who] "James has found his
tribe!" - it has been some time since I've met so many beautiful people
that I can authentically relate with and the 'high' is still with me - I
feel that Maurizio  and Zaya have been life-long friends even though I
just met them - it is one of those esoteric things that defys
explanations.... I know that I deeply deeply  love them yet I have no
explanation for why - it's like coming home - they'll be in my heart for

The after-effect of SAND and the attendees is simply something that I
absolutely feel in core of my heart - I particularly feel this same
connection with Kenny Johnson [however cliche' it is - I know that he's
my brother in Love] - it's as if I've known him all of my life as we're
a product of the same parent - the human situation... another person who
touched my heart at great depth is Scott Kiloby - I feel that Scott
appears to have a hard exterior and yet is and has a beautiful,
sensitive core that he honours - he's one of the most beautiful people
I've ever met.

The blessing of SAND is that there is an endless number of beautiful
people to meet and experience and each is a fascinating jewel of Indra's
Net - it was a truly and breath-taking privilege to be in the presence
of such beauty, integrity, honesty, humility, dedication, truth, joy and
uninhibited Love; I can't thank you enough for encouraging me to go and
all your support in getting me there - THANK YOU for the BENEDICTION
that you are JERRY - in my case the doors you've opened is grace
personified- I feel that your friendship is Grace itself - in this case
you're the music and I can only applaud!

Yes - you've inspired and encourage me to share the Love - we've got to
get more of our local community involved [and who is not our local
community  as the heart has space for everyone] ... my over the top
enthusiasm for it can be a testament - let's share it for the benefit of


Deepest Gratitude ~ All Love and Endless Peace,

ps - I can't find the Amsterdam info regarding SAND - please send me a
link - if it is at all possible - I'd like to be involved in any way I
can... maybe I can volunteer to make it happen - I am happy to offer a
slide presentation or some yoga - whatever helps!

pps - gotta tell everyone else!

ppps - you can quote any or none of this as you feel is appropriate - I
suggest that you especially quote my deepest thanks and respect for you
- most people have no idea how much you give - it's time to come out
from behind the curtain and take a bow!
