Nonduality at Juniper Level Botanic Garden
Welcome to the study and writings of nondual philosophy at Juniper Level Botanic Garden (JLBG). Established in 2013, Nonduality at Juniper Level offers retreats and classes facilitated by Anita Avent with guest speakers including Paul Hedderman, Paul Constant, Jan Frazier, Bob Cergol, Art Ticknor, Jenny Clarke, and Doug White.
The gardens were established in 1988 as a private, not-for-profit, 29-acre educational, research, and display garden with over 23,000 taxa (unique plants) located in Raleigh, NC, USA.
JLBG’s unique setting offers a quiet refuge for hosting self inquiry groups, classes, and nonduality retreats and for noticing the impersonal nature of aware presence through the creative and meditative tools of self inquiry, poetry, friendship, community, and silence.
A Christian pilgrim for more than 45 years, Anita experienced a radical shift of perception and a complete falling away of the personal identity in 2011 revealing only a timeless, indivisible, and infinite impersonal awareness. After living several years in seclusion, she shares breadcrumbs on the pathless path with pilgrims asking deeper philosophical questions.
Juniper Level Botanic Garden is an institutional member of the American Public Gardens Association and a living ephemeral expression of the passion and delight of owners Tony and Anita Avent.
