Show #17 January 8, 2014 nonduality.net/8jan2014.mp3
Dustin LindenSmith joins me in the studio and we discuss the
interview I conducted with Gurudatta Dattatreya.
Often outrageous, off topic, and out of control, this
show is an example of how humour and outrageousness may be
used to crack through the personas held by nondualists and
by the culture of nonduality itself. You'll either love or
-- not love -- this show.
Show #16 January 1, 2014 nonduality.net/1jan2014.mp3
Susan Zurawski talks
about how she got into Yoga at the advice of her neurologist when
she was stricken with a case of multiple sclerosis that left her
paralyzed and nearly blind on the left side of her body. Susan
talks about the power of Yoga not only for physical well being,
but for psychological, mental, and spiritual benefits. This
conversation explores many layers of Yoga and living and is indeed
satsang itself. The Ashtanga eight-fold path is discussed in some
detail with the bridge between Yoga and nonduality described. James
Traverse joins us.

Show #11 November 27, 2013 nonduality.net/27november2013.mp3
James Traverse and Dustin LindenSmith are guests with
Jerry Katz. James Traverse describes the extraordinary
spirit, the people, and various sessions of the recent
Shanti Fest in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The opportunity for
authentic experience. Culmination in ecsatic dance
described. "Extraordinary manifestation of peace." Audio
clips of om chanting, a gong bath, the music of
Suryachandra. The meaning of Om. The gong bath experience.
Dustin speaks about raising children as the most spiritual
practice there is. Stopping the fight against the way things
are. Connecting with the child "at an emotional level at the
moment based on what's happening at the time without trying
to do anything or change anything." Avoiding emotional
difficulty through eating. Value of living in the world
rather than becoming a "monk" or prior to spiritual
involvement. Life as the greatest teacher. Quote from Tolle:
As Eckhart Tolle says in A New Earth, ďwhile the child is
having a painbody attack, there isnít much you can do except
to stay present so that you are not drawn into an emotional
reaction. The childís painbody would only feed on it.
Painbodies can be extremely dramatic. Donít buy into the
drama. Donít take it too seriously. If the painbody was
triggered by thwarted wanting, donít give in now to its
demands. Otherwise, the child will learn: ĎThe more unhappy
I become, the more likely I am to get what I wantíĒ (page
Dustin talks about his tenor sax playing.

inspired this show. Mandee will return as an occasional
co-host. Jerry is now the main host and plans to include new
and frequent co-hosts, telephone interviews, interesting
audio clips, and to generally create an atmosphere that
welcomes everything life offers.
Show #9 November 13, 2013 nonduality.net/13november2013.mp3

and longing, and prayer. Enthusiasm is the next topic. A
clip from Swami Beyondananda. Also an audio of Coleman
Barks reading Rumi. In between it all, other topics,
considerations and humor.
Show #8 November 6, 2013 nonduality.net/6nov2013.mp3
A clip from a talk by Adyashanti: "We are in our
essence unborn." Meditation as a death, and opening
experience as "a display of the unseen." Realizing our
purpose. An interview with Adyashakti (Mark Canter),
author of Awakening
to the Obvious. "In short, nothing about me as a
personality could be called extraordinary. Yet this does not
detract from the matter at hand: I do understand my original
nature, as described in Buddhist and other mystical
teachings of the past twenty-five centuries. I have seen
beyond the limits of conventional identity, into the open
nature (free capacity) of consciousness itself. This book
offers no special doctrine the reader can adhere to. 'The
Great Way has no back,' said the Chinese sage Lao Tzu.
'Thus, it cannot be followed.' However, the essays herein
may help you to reconcile with the inherent mystery of life
as it is, and thus be one with (no longer at odds with) the
