An Interview with SAND Founders Maurizio and Zaya Benazzo

New Dimensions Radio has generously agreed to let us repost this podcast from 2013. It introduces Maurizio and Zaya to those of you who may not know them, and tells the story of the early days of the SAND conference ten years ago, and the challenges and successes of bringing science and spirit together on the same stage – in a dialog free from dogma.

It is also a good introduction to the concept of non-duality, and to some of the ideas that you’ll read about on the SAND website.

Throughout the interview the energy and passion of Maurizio and Zaya is self-evident, going some of the way towards explaining the goodwill that flows in their direction and why the SAND conference and community continues to grow and thrive.
