On the so called path to enlightenment, encounters are had with many apparent individuals who illicit the question, "What's really going on here?" Questioning what we consider "reality" may arise. Realizations may be had about how everything we think we know is pure rumor turned into an orthodox belief system. The invitation here is to question the orthodox, which is everything we hold to be true, by being exposed to a completely different paradigm and see what happens. @Non-Duality
Interview with Ariana on Non-Duality by Trey Carland
Arianna Reflects is what some might call an uncompromising non-duality speaker that I've been enjoying listening to for a while now. The impulse arose to interview her and this is the apparent result of that impulse. We had a lovely chat :) You can learn more about Ariana at https://arianareflects.com.
Interview with TIm Cliss on Non-Duality by Trey Carland
Tim Cliss is a non-duality speaker and author from Great Britain who gives weekly online talks and retreats. He has written a book entitled, This Deafening Silence, as well as a great deal of poetry. We had a lovely chat about the nature of Life as well as disillusionment. His energy and words are compassionately uncompromising. Here is a quote from his website, "Life is always as it is, this is it. All the past is here, all the future is here. For the seemingly separate individual, the search for freedom is the search to find something other than this. In his debut book, Tim points towards the unknowable everything and nothing. All there is, is this. This deafening silence." You can learn more about Tim, his writings and his videos at https://www.timclissthis.com. He also posted the video version of this interview here - https://youtu.be/RQG6SePHFq0.
Interview with Emerson on Non Duality by Trey Carland
Emerson has been conducting interviews and hosting online retreats for non-duality speakers for a while now. His videos and online retreats have introduced me to other radical non-duality speakers, for which there is immense gratitude. His passion for this radical non-duality message is very apparent in the conversations he's had with various speakers, as well as in our conversation. You can learn more about the events he's organizing on his website is https://www.non-duality.live/.

Interview with Jim Newman on Non Duality, by Trey Carland
Jim Newman is a non-duality speaker who has held retreats all over the world and currently hosts monthly online meetings. You can learn more about Jim and his message on his website - www.Simply-This.com. What Jim speaks about is much different than what most non-duality teachers are discussing as it has nothing on offer for the seeker. There is nothing to do because there is already no you to do it. This, what's arising, is complete and whole and perfect as it is and there is no separation, already. As I indicated in the interview, this message found "me" at just the right time for it to resonate on a deep level, and has apparently led to glimpses of what's being pointed to. Much gratitude to Jim for his willingness to share (as if he had a choice).

They discussed Trey's two books (A Seeker's Guide to Inner Peace: Notes to Self and Finding Peace Everywhere: How Presence, Surrender and Inquiry Changed my Life). Trey talks about how his early awakening experiences and diagnosis with epilepsy started him on the awakening journey. Many of the insights gained on that journey became written words that eventually became two books.
