Non-Duality Workshops take place on the first Sunday of the month.

Attendees are encouraged to share their experiences and insights of the non-dual philosophy, calling on teaching from whichever source is found to be of value. Sometimes a topic is selected to focus discussion but no extensive theory is offered leaving attendees to speak from their own awareness at the time. The emphasis is for the simple principles to be restated and appreciated in the company of like-minded people. Many who have shared these principles find they have universal application. It is not a question of getting somewhere but realizing who we already are; it is not a state of mind but a transcending of mind.

Non Members of the Society are welcome to attend the meetings which are found to be of particular help to those who have spent some time investigating the non-dual concepts previously and wish to test their understanding with others. Participants often find that the discussions give them greater meaning within their lives and inclusivity in society.

These Sunday morning groups get to the very heart of non-dual/Advaita teachings.

They are inspiring and practical. A theme may be introduced or a question may spark a spontaneous conversation.

Many people have been coming for some time but we always get new visitors every month and all are very welcome. The group is guided by Philip Marvin who has over forty years experience as a student and teacher of non-dual teachings.

We have had a long association with a line of teachers and tradition that traces back to one of the key figures in non-dual teachings - Adi Shankara - 8th century AD. Much rich material has derived from this resource. However more modern expressions of non-duality are also embraced as appropriate. Also the non-dual tradition in mystical Christianity, Sufism and Buddhism is also drawn on as well as Vedanta. The practical application of these essential teachings in everyday life and experience is emphasised and experiences shared.
