Wake Up to Your Nondual Spiritual Nature:
A Weekend Journey of Self-Realization

Originally offered through the Open Circle Center, this eight-hour "deep dive" into the nondual nature of reality guides you step by step in questioning your accustomed identities and assumptions and waking up to your true self, beyond the mind. Perfect both for the new seeker who wants a concise introduction to spiritual awakening and for the seasoned seeker (or finder) who wants to clarify and deepen their understanding, this video course can be watched over several weeks or used as the focus of a solo weekend retreat.

Each of the five classes features teachings, pointing-out instructions, guided meditations and inquiry, and dialogue with participants. For those who might be considering joining the School for Awakening or working with me as a spiritual teacher and mentor, this is is an excellent introduction to my teaching orientation and approach.

Free Webinar: Living from Truth in Challenging Times

Whether through chronic or life-threatening illness, personal loss, or global or political uncertainty, life has a way of challenging our connection with truth and inviting us to find an ever-deeper, more unshakable ground of happiness and peace. How do we remember and embody who we really are even when the going gets rough? This video webinar with Stephan explores this core issue through teachings, guided meditation, and dialogue in the direct approach to spiritual realization.


Falling in Love with Your Divine Imperfection

“In the world to come, God will not ask me, why were you not Moses? He’ll ask me, why were you not Zusya?”  —Hasidic master Reb Zusya of Hanipol

Not surprisingly in our goal-oriented, self-improvement culture, many seekers turn the journey of awakening into the pursuit of spiritual perfection. When I’m really awake, they believe, I’ll be just like Ramana, Nisargadatta, or some other saint or sage, free from human foibles. But spiritual awakening actually has quite the opposite effect: after years of struggling to be perfect, our hearts break open to the beauty and inherent pefection of our precious, messy humanness. In this satsang, we explore the divine invitation to love ourselves just as we are.
