SAND 2013 program will be posted on May 1st, 2013.

Five days of an exciting and stimulating conference

BEYOND THE “I”… the end of the seeker

Many of us have been “seeking” for most of our adult life. We have gone through many practices, spiritual paths and teachers only to discover that our pain and suffering did not disappear or even diminish.

It seems agreed upon by spiritual masters of all traditions that the main reason for our suffering is the identification with the “I” and the way to dissipate this pain is to merge with what is beyond the “I”, to merge the looker with what is looked at. Science, on the other hand, can help us to understand how we construct and experience the “I”, as well as the states beyond it.

At the next conference we will explore what moves us towards nondual awareness through science, music, movement, talks, and more.

Some of the topics we will explore are:

  • Observing and experiencing how the “I” arises (Neuroscience, Psychology)
  • Looking at the Macro (Cosmology) and the Micro (Biology, Quantum Theory) to reframe the “I” and give a different perspective and bring it “beyond”
  • The collapse of concepts, identifications and models (Experiential)
  • Glimpses of nondual awareness, no-state states beyond words and ideas (Satsang, Poetry, Art, Music and more...)

We are in the process of drawing the program and this aerial view is an indication of the basic structure of the 2010 event. If you are interested in seeing the 2009 program please click here!
