2018 Nonduality and Self-Inquiry

Nonduality at Juniper Level Botanic Garden – Raleigh, NC

2018 Saturday Self-Inquiry Group

This gathering at Juniper Level Botanic Garden is for ardent pilgrims ready to grok the illusory nature and appearance of the personal self. What is appearing and not appearing is aware presence, just this, here, now. There is nothing to be gained through self-inquiry, only concepts and beliefs to drop. What is is all there is and isn’t.

Optional reading: 
     Perfect Brilliant Stillness – David Carse
     Headless Way – Douglas Harding
     I Am That – Nisargardatta Maharaj

Jenny and I facilitate this group self-inquiry. No charge.  How can anyone charge money or prescribe a path or techniques for that which is already evident and on full display?

If you choose, your tax-deductible gifts to our not-for-profit botanic garden’s endowment fund are welcomed to help us preserve these thirty-year-old gardens as a continuing destination for medical and pharmacological plant research, plant breeding, endangered plant conservation in the face of climate changes, new plant exploration, horticultural wisdom, and, of course, preserving the sensual delights of the garden for our cherished gardening community world-wide now and for generations.

Please send us a note by email to if you are joining us for the first time to see if an open seat is available, or if you need directions.


Tentative dates – subject to change.  Self-inquiry group held at Anita’s botanic garden unless noted at Jenny’s.
