Nature and Experience of Fundamental Consciousness

May 2 - 4, 2015

Menas Kafatos


The universe is much richer than our senses tell us. The underlying reality is universal consciousness, which operates at every level of existence of the universe and is founded on the fundamental I-awareness, which is the true Self. Through a series of fundamental principles, the Self projects the universe out of its own infinite existence in what appear as infinite numbers of objects. However, it never loses its own I-ness. The sages of ancient monastic schools taught the experience of the Self through practical steps. While its names are infinite and its nature mysterious (because it can never be studied through perception or through the mind) the creative process of Self can be experienced in one’s own being.
