SPEAKER and TOPIC:
Phillip Ellis: "How We Make Decisions"
Phillip has long held an innate passion for working with people to
inspire activism in creating a better community. This passion
originally led him to work in the environmental field with an
education in Marine Biology. During his professional career as an
integral part of a local non-profit organization he witnessed,
firsthand, the importance of impacting peoples' lives through
community outreach and development.
Recently, through his discovery of Yoga philosophy Phillip has
refocused his talents for educating the public on difficult issues
and facilitating community development in a new direction. Over the
past few years he has intensely devoted himself to studying one of
the oldest yogic lineages under Dandi Swami Jnaneshvara Bharati who
is renowned for his deep, experiential understanding of this
Himalayan Tradition. Phillip has dedicated himself to learning and
practicing these teachings which he believes can empower individuals
with the knowledge inherent in themselves to profoundly impact their
lives, their families and the community.

STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:
The Center for Non-Dualism is a community for people who share the
Non-Dual perspective of Religion, Yoga, and Philosophy. The purpose
of the Center is to maintain a loving fellowship and to provide a
nurturing environment that is conducive to learning and experiencing
the oneness of Non-Dualism.
Non-Dualism is the orientation that there is one absolute reality
without a second, and that each of us, although an individual person,
is one with that reality, just as a wave is not separate from the
ocean. The emphasis of our Center is on the practices such as
contemplation and meditation which lead to the direct experience of
this Non-Dual reality.
