Non-Duality Dialogue
Mondays, 12:30 - 1:45 p.m. CT 
with Ed Moskowitz and  Pablo Sender
.
The most fundamental Theosophical teaching states that, underlying the diversity and separation we perceive, there is an ultimate unity. The realization of this One Reality, our eternal and true Self, brings us beyond the realm of conflict and sorrow. Nondualism refers to this state of consciousness. The primary purpose of this online discussion group is to explore the nondual approach to life, with an emphasis on its practical application. Each meeting will include time to read and discuss teachings on non-duality, and time to share our experiences with exercises suggested for growth in self-knowledge and self-awareness.

Illuminating the Mysteries of the Soul

Light and darkness are universal themes in spirituality. We are attracted to the warmth and comfort of the light and often fear the dark. But there is beauty in the shadows. As Annie Besant said, "Darkness will prove but the mother of light."

Science and Spirituality
When Facts and Faith Unite

The Law of Karma
June 28, 7 p.m.
with Ajahn Chandako

Teachings on karma are often confused with ideas such as fatalism and the notion that everything is predetermined. However, the Buddha was very careful to refute such misconceptions. Rather, he spoke about karma as a dynamic process of cause and effect governed by impersonal natural laws, by which our volitional actions generate consequences.
