Generation You with Catalin Matei

Apr 2, 2021

About the Guest:

Rupert Spira is an English studio potter and writer, famous for his carefully crafted minimalist bowls as well as his career as a spiritual writer and teacher, engaged in the practice and philosophy of Non-Duality, which is also called Advaita in Sanskrit. 

The main point of Non-Duality teaching is the belief that we are the souls who create the illusion that there is an outside world. In this sense, major aspects of the outside world and reality as we know it are considered non-existent and what remains is based purely on the intimacy of our inner experience and true self.

Spira explores the nature of human experiences and perceptions in his essays, books, videos, and lectures. He has published a couple of books related to his teaching as well as a few DVDs with interviews and lectures.

He also organizes regular spiritual meeting events, video conferences, and retreat gatherings dedicated to Non-Duality, and these events are held in the UK, Europe, and the US.
