I am suggesting another non-duality teacher
for you to put on your list. Please look at the web site of
Elle Collier Re, or http://www.inei-re.org. Elle has been teaching
for twenty five years, beginning in Santa Fe. She is an awakened
Elle has a retreat center in Hood River, Oregon,
however, she travels and teaches in various parts of the country. She is one of
those rare teachers, without a large organization who is still accessable both
physically and financially to the serious student.
Please check her out.
"THE PATH TO GOD - My
The direct path to God lies in answering with
finality, our longing for a return to simplicity and innocence.
We wander between West and East - wanting a personal god at one level yet
seeking to depersonalise ourselves on another, travelling the 4 corners
of the spiritual compass when we need only understand that there are NO
borders. In merely surrendering to God, we invite in, an enveloping force
of love that can sweep through and vaporise personal agendas. No
longer a need to look up or seek focus on reference points of God
as Him/Her. Self-perception fades to a colourless dot and cultural
labels and personal agendas self-destruct. Just the Law of
The grip on banked memories and on tired
and borrowed goals loosens. Old timetables and plans become featureless
seas of ego attrition. Mind is dismissed as
a kite billowing, surfing, sweeping, arrowing, taking in all .... but at
the end of its plays, devoid ....... naked - an empty life-force - a
duplicitous gaggle of gestures and postures. The enormity of
love displaces the froth of illusion that is the
construct of our secular lives, dispersing over the edge of the cup that
houses our egos, allowing the intoxicating essence of the underlay of truth
to rush into the vacuum, contentment to sit languidly and the infusion to
be nurtured into universal meaning."
