In this episode, we explore Non-Dualism and the wisdom of Adi Shankara from 8th Century India. We talk about the importance of philosophy vs. religion. We explore:

  • Who was Adi Shankara?
  • Why is it important to understand Advaita Vedanta – Non-Dualism
  • The implications of understanding the higher knowledge of consciousness
  • How to approach relationships, mind-body wellness, success and spiritual goals through a non-dual lens

“He who knows this Brahman, hidden in the cave of the heart, cuts asunder even here the knot of ignorance.” -Mundaka Upanishads
