The Center for Nondualism was founded in Fort Walton Beach, Florida in 2007 as a
community for people who share the Nondual/Monistic 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 Nondualism.
Nondualism ("Advaita" in Sanskrit; a=non; dvaita=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
Participants have historically had a wide range of backgrounds and practices
including Advaita Vedanta, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Yoga, Course in
Miracles, 12-Step programs and other mystical or esoteric traditions. Some have
a theistic orientation (believing in a dualistic personal god) and others have a
non-theistic orientation (not believing in a dualistic personal god). Nondualism
is inclusive of all and exclusive of none. There is no person or group of people
who are excluded from this nondual reality.
