A Meeting on Non-Duality
Saturday, Sept. 27th at 5pm
Paul Toliuszis is one of the most experienced yoga teacher trainers in the United States. He began practice in 1992, and in 1998 founded the first of three successful yoga schools in Miami Beach. Over the past 16 years, Paul has taught 12,000 yoga classes, led 38 200 hour professional teacher trainings and certified over 400 teachers. He is known in South Florida as “The Teacher of Teachers.” His ability to joyously share yoga and Non-Duality with an absolute lack of dogma and judgment has inspired countless people. Paul is currently the Director of Yoga at Green Monkey yoga studios and holds meetings in Non-Duality in South Florida. He was recently selected as a presenter at the 2014 Science and Non-Duality (SAND) Conference in San Jose, CA.
Non-Duality means “not two” and is a translation from the Sanskrit word Advaita. Though it has been taught for centuries as a path to enlightenment, very few teachers were able to communicate the message. Now, in an age when we share information globally, the teaching of Non-Duality has emerged as an effective, direct means of self realization. Non-Duality is synonymous with the word yoga, meaning union, and is also the jnana or wisdom path referred to in the Hindu scriptures.
The emphasis on Non-Duality is to gain an experiential knowing of what we actually are.
Certainly what we are is not a belief, a role, an idea, a theory or a word. Our inquiry takes us beyond these concepts of what we think we are to the surprising recognition of our ever present, infinite, yet impersonal, true nature.
Direct path Non-Duality teachings reveal that the wholeness or completion that we are seeking is the very awareness that we are right now. Everything is only ever experienced in the awareness that we are. Nothing could ever be known outside of awareness.
Non-Duality is the current reality as all that is right now and the revelation that we don’t have a relationship to that; we are that.
Many people over the years have asked me to expand on what I say during my yoga classes. I am grateful for the opportunity to do that in this meeting. I hope to see you there.
