Episode details

Unlike with conventional meditation, with non-dual meditation there are no states of mind to attain.

With non-dual meditation, you don't need to train, change, or discipline your mind.

Because you don't need to depend on meditative states of mind for peace and happiness.

Peace and happiness is what you already are.

Relax back into the context of awareness in which the contents arise.

Feel what you are.

Be what you are.
