Foundation for Nonduality
Welcome to The Foundation for Nonduality
The Foundation for Nonduality is dedicated to making the principles of nondual thinking and practice as articulated by Jason Shulman available to the greater public for the purpose of transforming the consciousness of individuals in order to help alleviate suffering in the world.
Our hope is to educate individuals, professionals, families, groups, organizations, businesses, and those working in the area of conflict resolution. These principles and their practical application focus on the unitive connection between personal and transcendent consciousness as the foundational basis for change and healing.
Over the past forty years of teaching, Jason Shulman has worked to reconcile the deistic or relative paths of liberation with the consciousness of Buddhism and other non-theistic paths to create a truly nondual path of healing, one that does not exclude any aspect of reality. His work emphasizes the healing of the personal ego and its rightful place in any path that seeks liberation from ignorance and the awakening of compassion. It also seeks to bring the truly human world, with its imperfections, into alignment with the realization of transcendent awareness. In this way we develop a conscious awakening to the sacredness of every sentient being and every time-bound moment.
All the world’s great spiritual traditions tell us that “the world is one.” Though the language changes from tradition to tradition deistic paths saying “God is One,” while other paths talk about “the unitive state” or “awakening,” or “enlightenment" humankind has always had a sense that there is an underlying seamlessness between ourselves and the universe, despite the fact that we so often feel alienated from ourselves and the world.
Sangha. Congregation. Havurah. Tribe. It has been consistent throughout recorded history that a vital component of the personal spiritual journey has been its connection to the group, the relationship of the solitary seeker to his or her brothers and sisters on the path.
On the most obvious level it’s easy to understand: we want people to talk to, we want to share our experiences, we want support and love from like‐minded people as we take the sometimes difficult journey of awakening to our true nature, of finding God.
